Forbes recently published an article on how businesses of all sizes can better meet their cyber-security needs in 2014. One of their chief suggestions is for businesses to have a coherent cyber-security plan provided by IT outsourcing companies, one that involves all employees and requires an honest assessment of the business’s network, workstation and server vulnerabilities.
Rather than being embarrassed about openly discussing cyber-security vulnerabilities, the article calls on business owners to not only assess their IT services risks in an honest, straightforward fashion but also to assume that at some point their security will get compromised.
What would happen if a hacker gets past your business’s digital defenses? The following are some points to consider:
