Cyber security: How safe is your data?

Help secure your business from cyber threats.

If you do business online, communicate with customers or suppliers via email, or even just have computers connected to the internet, you may be exposed to the threat of a cyber attack. According to the 2014 Travelers Business Risk Index, more than half of businesses worry about technology and cyber risks. Whether it is stolen intellectual property from a manufacturer, or the theft of customer data from a retail giant, a data breach can impact a company’s brand, reputation and customer confidence. It can be financially devastating. Your business should begin to protect itself by establishing a comprehensive policy on cyber security that is supported by employee training, cyber risk assessment processes, network security and incident response planning.

Draft your cyber security plan

It is important to create a comprehensive data security plan, but it is even more important to get started now.
