In 2015, more than 100 million records were exposed owing to a breach of data. This amounts to approximate damage in the range of $1 billion. In 2015 there was a 30% increase in the number of such incidents compared to the previous year. A small sized company estimates a loss of $50,000 for every such data theft.
Even though people are aware of the potential damage they face due to data theft, many are still unaware of the types of threats that could potentially weaken their business.
THERE IS AN EVER-INCREASING NEED FOR IT SERVICES WHO PROVIDE SECURITY TO THE UNSUSPECTING SMALL AND MEDIUM-SIZED FIRMS:
Owing to the value that the data holds, criminal elements may attempt to steal your data. The data could belong to customers and could reveal payment information or could be some other data of a sensitive nature. Any data that can potentially harm another person’s safety and security needs to be safeguarded. And the people guarding this are liable to legal action in case there is a theft. Losing data sensitive to your own business which could upset the company’s growth and cause to lose business revenue is another major cause of concern for any firm. Imagine losing intellectual property. This can put the business back in time and situations like this often result in serious consequences.
In certain cases the user then receives a message on the screen in the form of a threat that the files have been encrypted and that a ransom needs to be paid in a certain time to ensure that the data is safe. This has happened to a lot of firms and individuals, quite often they lose money or data and both in some cases.
This results in downtime and in many cases, this is a direct hit on the revenue. The downtime is a massive hit on the brand’s reputation too.
In some cases, the attackers find a way to host malware on your site. This also installs onto the visitor’s computer when they browse on this site. It takes some time but eventually Google will sense this and the user starts seeing warning messages before the page loads.
BUSINESS TODAY MUST USE PROPER SECURITY MEASURES
In addition, 60% of those businesses reported that customer data, including social security numbers and credit card information that had been stolen or lost, wasn’t encrypted. It’s important to consider that not all breached data results from malicious attacks. Research indicates that most breaches are actually the result of a negligent insider.
This means that the responsibility of ensuring customers’ information remains secure cannot be left primarily to the IT department. Every employee within an organization should be aware of adequate security measures.
After realizing the damage caused by a security breach, 61% of businesses increased their security budget, with 28% hiring additional IT security professionals to ensure maximum security.
THERE ARE SEVERAL REASONS WHY THE SECURITY BUDGET AND SECURITY MEASURES SHOULD BE OF PRIMARY IMPORTANCE:
PROTECTION OF YOUR ASSETS
PROTECTION OF YOUR STAFF
AS FOR SECURITY BREACHES, YOU CAN AVOID THE CONSEQUENCES BY FOLLOWING THESE TIPS:
FIND NETWORK SECURITY WEAK SPOTS BEFORE HACKERS
You’ve probably lost track of the number. And definitely worried that you could be next. How to prevent your company from becoming a statistic? Read on to learn about finding weak spots in your network security before hackers do.
PREVENTING WIRELESS SNIFFING
One of the most important methods hackers use to steal data is called “sniffing.” The term refers to a program or a device that monitors information passing through a network.
Sniffers can do a great deal of damage. However, there is a way to stop them. Many software detection programs can sense whether a sniffer is running on a given computer or a network.
The best defense against sniffing is to use encryption. Encryption transforms data into unreadable code. The only way to see the information properly is if you’ve got the encryption key, which translates it back to its previous state.
Surprisingly, one of the weakest spots in network security is your employees. It’s not so difficult to identify a problem on a network or a device. Employees, however, can commit all sorts of gaffes without you realizing it. And their mistakes can take quite a bit longer to detect.
Hackers frequently rely on a technique called “social engineering” to gain access to information. “Social engineering” relies on people’s basic good and trusting nature in order to trick them into sharing data they wouldn’t otherwise part with.
If a hacker breaks into a network. They require passwords and other credentials to steal information. So, the hacker sends out an email that appears to be from the HR department. This email requests usernames and passwords for what sounds like a genuine purpose. Because the employee doesn’t want to be uncooperative, they reply to the email, giving the criminal powerful data quickly and simply.

When security threats are regularly featuring on the news and affecting large companies such as Amazon, Facebook, and Google (as with the ‘Heartbleed’ bug back in April) it can seem like no-one is safe from security breaches. Thinking small business is 100 percent secure, or that an attack will never happen because your business is not as big as Google or Facebook, that couldn’t be further from the truth.
