Cybersecurity is the practice of defending networks, systems and programs from attack. Integrating cybersecurity into business strategy helps to prevent attacks, which can damage data, undermine customer trust and loyalty and impact profitability.
The risk of a cybersecurity breach increases with the number of connected devices, applications and users. Hackers are constantly looking for new ways to infiltrate and exploit businesses. Many of these attack vectors, such as malware, phishing, botnets, ransomware and credential stuffing, have grown in volume, sophistication and scope over the years.
Human error is also a major problem and an ongoing challenge. It’s important to educate employees about the types of threats that are out there and how they can help protect the organization. Taking a proactive approach to security, such as regularly backing up data and using multi-factor authentication, can help to minimize the impact of these errors.
In addition to the general security challenges, there are also specific compliance regulations that must be followed in order to safeguard a company’s sensitive information. Performing regular cybersecurity assessments can help identify gaps and create stronger policies that better meet these needs.
The benefits of integrating cybersecurity into the overall business strategy are clear. A cybersecurity assessment can identify potential problems with infrastructure, policies and other aspects of a company’s information systems that could result in a breach.
