According to FBI, it is not a matter of if, but when a data breach will occur within any organizations. Any business could be the next victim of hackers who can bring the network system down, hold the data for ransom and sell off the victim’s sensitive data.
Hackers are continuously probing networks looking for the weakest link as your data is worth a lot to them. Everyone thinks hackers always attack from the outside, but in reality 27 percent of data breaches are related to human error allowing access to data. Even the most loyal employee can be unaware that the sensitive data such as SS numbers, bank accounts, credit card numbers, etc. that they send in an email or attachment can end up in the wrong hands and exposed if they are encrypted.
A disgruntled employee is more than 48 percent likely to steal sensitive data essential to business. Right now they could be getting ready to leave the company for a competitor and are downloading files from the web, printing off your customer lists or emailing themselves their most critical data. How would you even know?
It’s time to ask some questions:
- What is the real cost to my business if the data is breached?
- Will they sell it in overseas or to competitors?
- What regulatory violations fines will I have to pay?
- What are the legal obligations to notify customers?
- What is my cost to rectify the breach?
- How much ransom can I afford?
- What is the cost of lost productivity?
- What are employees doing with my sensitive data?
- Who has access to it?
- Where is my sensitive data / Intellectual Property is being kept in my network and who has access to it?
