Cybersecurity is an imperative, but often overlooked aspect of your business. As we approach the new normal of remote work, with 35% of American employees working from home full-time, IT experts are urging businesses owners to get comfortable with understanding their business infrastructure and investing in a full-scale, robust cybersecurity program. As convenient as it is for employees to work flexibly, remote work can pipeline to more cyber threats and new risk factors because of how many new endpoints are introduced.
If your employees are interested and want to move to remote work, it’s time to take cybersecurity seriously.
Cybersecurity awareness is critical for businesses
Despite the significance of having a cybersecurity action plan, many business owners still hesitate to prioritize investing in it, or their IT standing at all. Although technology can be a hefty upfront expense, the price your business will pay if a threat actor infiltrates your data is much larger; 60% of businesses hit by a cyberattack close within six months. However, the language barrier revolving around business cybersecurity is fraught with companies trying to sell the latest product or software, which can turn off anyone just trying to learn more about how to protect themselves and their data. The right security tools can be an invaluable asset for preserving your data privacy, but if you don’t know how to implement them properly or know what they’re doing, they’re useless.
Even worse, there’s no amount of product plugging that can help you understand how to make cybersecurity work for your unique business needs or comply with industry standards. As an example, the same rules that work for financial services might not for healthcare, or manufacturing. Cybersecurity is not a one-size-fits-all solution, and it shouldn’t be treated like one. The research is exhausting, the terminology is inaccessible, and the price tag is intimidating.
Overall, cybersecurity is not beginner friendly.
