With over 15 years’ experience working in the IT and Risk Management industry, we have heard countless reasons for why people don’t want to invest in IT and Cyber Security.
Are you guilty of any of these?
The cyber-criminals haven’t targeted us in the past. Every day businesses are attacked with newly developed and evolving attacks. Can you wholeheartedly say that one day they won’t succeed in attacking and gaining access to your systems?
Why do I need anti-virus, I’ve never had a virus? Anti-virus, anti-malware and endpoint protection are all in place to make sure that the cyber-attacks that are trying to gain access to your systems are unable. Without their protection there are no defences to prevent them from accessing and stealing your data.
We’ve been hit by a cyber-attack before, they aren’t going to target us again. Just because you have been cyber attacked before does not make you exempt from future attacks. Your business is and will always be at risk without effective security measures in place.
These excuses could be stopping your business from being secure and protected from outsider malicious attacks.
