Cybersecurity: Drive Awareness and Education
Cybersecurity Planning and Cyber Resiliency
Small businesses are increasingly becoming targets of cyber attacks. The latest data shows that 43% of all cyber attacks have been perpetrated against small business. About 60% of these small businesses lack the cyber resiliency to survive and cannot recover. (Verizon’s Data Breach Investigations Report) Cyber resiliency is a business’ ability to prepare for, respond to, and recover from cyber attacks. Limiting the impact of an attack, defending against attacks and continuing operation after attacks are all part of a business’ resiliency.
To build up cyber resiliency, you must first have a strong level of awareness about cybersecurity. Cybersecurity processes and technologies help protect systems from unauthorized access and cyber crime. It is the protection of devices, applications and data that are part of an interconnected system.
