It all starts with a cybersecurity score
See the picture attackers have of your business and security ecosystem, monitor, assess and prevent cybersecurity risks before damage occurs.
Businesses have always faced a variety of risks, but over the past two decades, cyber risks have become one of the fastest growing threats to businesses, their data, and their financial success. These assets are the focus for cybercriminals - and many vulnerabilities lend themselves to them, from internal mistakes like misconfigured servers, unsecured access for external partners, or employees who accidentally (or, in the worst cases, intentionally) lose data, to cyberterrorism and corporate espionage.
According to the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), nearly $600 billion - almost 1% of global GDP - is lost to cybercrime each year. Cyber risks are in the top 3 current threats and if not for current events, they would be the clear number 1 (Source: Allianz Risk Barometer 2021): "A cyber attack or technical failure that causes a major outage can result in a serious business interruption event."
This is associated with production downtimes, delivery interruptions, data loss and, as a factor that should not be neglected, loss of reputation. A current example is the hacker attack on the Colonial Pipeline with its consequences.
