Your business operations depend on your computer systems just like you and I depend on oxygen. An active and effective security plan is crucial to the survival of your business.
The security threat to your network system by sophisticated viruses and hackers, both local and international, are continually evolving. These threatening security breaches can have a massive impact on your company’s bottom line. Attacks by hackers are becoming a greater reality to more and more organizations. A recent study published by the Heritage Foundation quoted FBI Director James Comey,
“There are two kinds of big companies in the United States. There are those who’ve been hacked…and those who don’t know they’ve been hacked.”
The cost from compromised security breaches to American businesses is growing, as well. The same study pointed to a recent survey from the the Ponemon Institute showed the average cost of cyber crime for U.S. retail stores more than doubled from 2013 to an annual average of $8.6 million per company in 2014. The annual average cost per company of successful cyber attacks increased to $20.8 million in financial services, $14.5 million in the technology sector, and $12.7 million in communications industries.
Network managers face the crucial task of balancing the connectivity the organization needs for corporate and individual communications, while keeping their sensitive information and proprietary data secure from outside threats.
