Preventing Cyber Attacks

The internet is now one of the main places to do business, and brings a wealth of opportunities and benefits, especially for small businesses. In fact, the ability to safely email, store data, work and transact remotely, and operate a website is crucial to everyday operation, success, and the ability to grow. Cyber-attacks can significantly hamper business operations as companies greatly rely on technology, social media, and the Internet to manage costs and maintain a competitive advantage. Being cyber resilient can help a company prevent loss of revenues, business downtime, several unforeseen costs, and legal liabilities that come bundled with a cyber breach.
