Become Cyber Smart During Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2020
October is cybersecurity awareness month, but cybercrime is not a new concept. It’s hard to find an internet user who hasn’t been targeted by a phishing scam or a virus looking to steal data, take advantage of network weaknesses and ultimately cause damage that can be expensive and time consuming to fix.
For businesses, these threats have cost more than $5 trillion dollars worldwide in the past five years, and for SMBs who do not have the full-scale cybersecurity resources at their disposal, they’re increasingly at risk of become the prime targets of attackers looking to gain access to confidential information.
We’ve put together the below video to illustrate some of the potential risks that come with not securing your IT environment, and why a managed security services provider (MSSP) like Impact can be your cost-effective, consolidated solution to address these ongoing issues.
