Businesses of all sizes are vulnerable to cyber threats, from data breaches to cyber attacks. The consequences of a security breach can be devastating, resulting in the loss of sensitive data, reputational damage, and even legal implications. To minimise the risk of such incidents, organisations need to take a proactive approach to their cybersecurity strategy. One way to do this is through threat modelling.
A data breach could take over 100 days to be spotted. An additional 60 days may be needed to recover from it. However, you can recover from a breach within 30 days with a recovery plan, saving you resources. Your recovery team’s swift reaction to any signs of a data breach will help you recover as soon as possible.
As the use of technology in the workplace continues to grow, so does the importance of cybersecurity. Large corporations are frequently targeted by hackers, but smaller enterprises may be even more appealing targets as they may not be able to devote as much attention to setting up cybersecurity protocols and are thus simpler to breach. Despite the increasing awareness of cybersecurity threats, many employees still do not take the necessary precautions to protect their data and devices.
