Cybersecurity for Businesses

Whether you’re a small or medium-sized business, you have to use technology to serve and interact with your customers. From using your smartphone to Tweet a special to using internet-connected inventory and cash-management tools, the world is at your fingertips.

Technology opens up all kinds of new possibilities to grow your customer base and your business, but it can also lead to trouble if you’re not careful. Cybersecurity has never been more important as it is today. With cybercrimes on the rise costing individual businesses millions of dollars in losses, you can’t afford to be a victim.

Protect payment information.

Whether you’re B2C or B2B, you probably have tons of payment information from your customer base. Online payments for services, e-commerce purchases, vendor payments can all be intercepted or accessed with the right tools.

You also have all of your own records. Your company cards and accounts, tax information, the whole shebang. It goes without saying this could be trouble for your company, but there, we said it anyway.

If you ask your customers to sign up for account profiles, you’re also storing their sensitive personal information—even if it’s just their name and email, cybercriminals can still do damage with minimal information.

Your employees are prime targets for attack.

Human error is by far the most significant factor in cyberattacks. The FBI reported that over 95% of cybercrimes involve human error. It's the most difficult variable to account for.

To complicate things further, some government employees who’ve been around for a while can be stuck in their ways, just like anyone else. Maybe they've done something one way for years or even decades, and then someone plops down a bunch of machines, hooks up some wires, hands them an armful of devices, and says there's a whole new way of doing things. It can be daunting.

Luckily, proper and regular employee training will significantly curb that human variable. When your employees know how to use their tech safely, and they're aware of the threats around them, you're better protected than most.

You’re probably not as focused on technology and security

We can’t totally blame you here, but brick & mortar stores are typically more focused on their inventory control and physical security. Retail theft isn’t fun to deal with, but a ransomware attack that steals all your customers’ credit card information is a waking nightmare.

Coffee shops and other businesses that provide public guest networks for customers leave themselves (and their guests) vulnerable to hackers and malware.

You could have lots of guest devices connected to a public network.

Businesses and offices with multiple locations also complicate matters. Each building has its own distinct network, but it’s all interconnected throughout a larger infrastructure. While it makes inter-office synchronization a cinch, each location is a bundle of potential weak points too.

Anything connected to a network is tangentially connected to everything else on the internet. Without the right protections in place, a hacker could slip through firewalls or install malicious software on your servers or other guests’ devices.
