You might have also come across the phrase if your business has been trying to win government contracts. But what is the cyber essentials scheme and why would your business need it?
Ransomware is one the most serious threats that modern businesses face. A successful ransomware attack can leave your business unable to operate. It may also result in your customers’ data being leaked online. This can damage both the reputation and bottom line of your company.
Unfortunately, a lot of smaller companies do not survive the fallout from a ransomware attack. Many will go out of businesses in the following weeks or months.
Luckily, there are steps that you can take to better protect yourself against ransomware. There are also methods for recovering your encrypted data. Recovering your data allow you to continuing operating even if your current files are encrypted.
When it comes to cybersecurity, everyone has their own definition of what ‘secure’ means. For the average person, if they’ve swapped the letter I for the number one in their password, they’re ‘secure’. On the other hand, there are those who take an almost paranoid view of security, never trusting any system to be secure.
The important thing to consider when addressing security concerns within your business is what level of security will give you peace of mind, while also not being disruptive enough to start cutting into your organisation’s efficiency.
