Often times cyber attacks on businesses go unnoticed, and cyber criminals want it that way. They want to wait for that perfect moment when sensitive information is at their fingertips and with your hacked credentials they have the luxury of doing so until you are aware. This loss of information can cripple a business not only financially but also from a customer perspective. Often times business is lost due to ineffective cyber security parameters that are in place.
Would you want to trust your banking or personal information with a company if you knew there was a history of them leaking customer information? We recommend using the have i been pwned? site to see if your credentials have been compromised for free. Cyber Security Services and awareness is key to keeping your business protected.
