Do your customers have a false sense of (cyber)security?

Cyber threats are a business reality. It is no longer a question of whether a company will be targeted or not; it’s just a matter of when it will be targeted. Unfortunately, cybersecurity is seen as an IT problem and tends to fall off the business radar — until it’s too late. Meanwhile, malicious attacks are growing in their frequency and sophistication.

In fact, the Allianz Risk Barometer now puts cyber “perils” as the number one risk to companies in 2022. This comes as little surprise when you consider that the frequency of cyberattacks rose by 50% last year according to research by Check Point Software Technologies.

How cybercrime has evolved over the years

Today’s cybercriminals are bona fide professionals motivated by financial gain and often working under the aegis of organized criminal groups, radical political parties, even rogue nations. They are extremely skilled, have far better resources and are well-funded. Firewalls, antivirus software and content filtering measures won’t be a deterrent to them.

Cyber breaches hit hard

A security breach can result in business-critical information being lost or stolen, leading to grave economic consequences. It can also leave a company’s reputation in tatters. Even the threat of such a malicious attack is an extra burden. No manager needs this additional stress and worry.

To add to the problem, a lot of cyberattacks are accidentally invited in. Employees opening attachments and phish mails among other innocent mistakes account for up to 88% of data breach incidents.

With so much at risk, both you and our customers need an expert watch dog that knows cybersecurity and is monitoring 24/7. We also ensure you will have an ongoing awareness of current cyber threats and how to mitigate them as early as possible to reduce or prevent damage.
