For businesses, data is essential. We need it to effectively market our products. Protection from data breach is as essential for business success as collecting it is in the first place. A data breach carries some serious risks for businesses.
Not only do they have to deal with the financial hit, but they also have to deal with the fallout. Six out of ten small businesses don’t survive longer than six months after a breach. Having the right security measures in place, like email scanning software and cybersecurity awareness programs is your best chance of defending your business.
