Cyber-Security: Is your Business Secure?

Security cameras and other security devices are connected to the internet and allow users to access them remotely to check their business. It allows business owners and stakeholders to see what is going on while they are not physically present at their office, retail outlet or manufacturing unit. However, this is a feature that also has some vulnerabilities. If these cameras, or access control devices are not secured properly, they can be accessed remotely by anyone and not just those with whom you want to share access. Similarly, all communications between servers and applications can be exploited by cyber hackers which put their business networks at risk. It is an underlying problem for the physical security industry. This is where a cyber security testing company steps-in and takes control of the situation. 

Gartner's Research on Cyber-Attacks

According to Gartner, by 2020 more than 25% of the cyber attacks in organizations will involve IoT devices. Thus, all businesses need to secure their devices. More than 60% of cyber attacks are being carried out on small and medium-sized businesses due to these vulnerabilities. Whereas, almost 60% of companies could not sustain their business beyond six months after a cyber attack. Similarly, a study by IBM and the Ponemon Institute in 2018, the average breach costs businesses faced reached up to $3.86 million. 

Importance of Securing your Business Networks and Data

Whether it is a startup or an SME that you are running, you simply cannot afford to take any risks when it comes to protecting your official data and systems against these cyber crimes. Thus, it is necessary to look out for a cyber security testing company that can test your apps and systems for any vulnerabilities, and secure them. Software developers and testers have come up with different strategies to protect businesses against cyber threats and so you can't just let the hackers away with their plan of action. These cyber security experts don't just stop there, they check systems thoroughly by mimicking how hackers would try to access any business. By replicating these, they think like an actual hacker and find all possible ways inside the crucial database. 

Solutions that a Business should have to ensure Cyber Security 

Combating cyber threats has never been easy or simple. An important way to do this is to come up with a proper plan. To begin with, taking the right measures, you need to train and educate your employees regarding the importance of cyber security. Moving forward hiring a cyber security testing company is another way to combat all malicious hacks and threats. With the help of multiple layers of cyber security including authentication, encryption and authorization can control all critical business and security systems. 

Placing the right checks at all levels will allow business stakeholders to ensure their data and systems are safe from any cyber threats. It promotes business growth and allows business owners to focus on other key areas while reducing the risks of potential malware attacks.
