In a recent article in the Springfield Small Business Journal, I talked about how every business has a multitude of attack vectors that could allow a hacker in. An attack vector being the source of entrance into your treasured data. This last year we have seen an increase in security threats unlike any that has ever existed. Hackers are exploiting every possible security attack vector to: cause you harm, hold your data hostage, compromise your systems so that hackers can use them for their purposes, sell your client data, and just make life difficult. As if you didn’t have enough to be worried about; you now have to move SECURITY and CYBER LIABILITY to the top of the list.
Time to Make Cyber Liability and Security a Priority
Business owners have to be aware of security threats from the inside-out, outside-in, the outside-out, and the inside-in. Phew… If I don’t have you thoroughly confused let me explain:
- Inside-Out – Employees are one of the greatest security risks for a business. With the advent of BYOD (Bring your own device) in the workplace as well as app-sprawl, the line between business data and personal data is being blurred, and security holes are being opened up. Unknowingly employees could leak information to individuals outside of the organization that could compromise your clients or your company.
- Outside-In – The second biggest security risk is when an hacker targets your systems to gain access to important information for various purposes, as explained earlier.
- Outside-Out – Recent events have taken places where hackers gained access to client information, and then used a companies own systems to send out attacks targeted at the company’s clients.
- Inside-In – Without proper security protocols inside a company, line employees could have access to to HR records, financial information, and client data that could cause disruptions and liability. No business owner wants to have to deal with employees sharing personal information or gossiping with other employees about private matters they have learned about because of insecure systems and protocols.
