Having an insecure or unsecured network puts your business at serious risk. Everything from customer data to financial information and business intelligence is vulnerable without a strong level of network security in place.
- Loss of credibility and reputation.
If your customer or clients data is compromised by a cyber attack or virus it can be a PR disaster. One of the quickest ways your business can lose credibility is failing to keep the valuable information of those that rely on you safe.
- Data and business intelligence at risk.
Your data, analytics, and business intelligence are what give you the edge over your competitors. An unsecured network leaves the door open for them to access that information and learn the secrets of your success.
- Huge legal and financial ramifications.
Data breaches come with large legal and financial consequences. Many laws, such as GDPR, obligate businesses to keep their customer data secure. Failing to protect a client’s data could lead to an expensive lawsuit to recuperate any losses.
