What type of data does your organization process?
- You are storing and exchanging different documents and e-mails such as application documents, and personal & sensitive data of citizens and employees.
- You are storing and exchanging essential files in areas of critical infrastructure in the utility sector, public transport, etc.
- You are responsible for many public procurements. During this process, you are managing big public budgets.
- You exchange documents with lawyers, external accounting offices, banks, insurance brokers, marketing agencies, and others.
- You exchange documents and e-mails internally. These include your financial statements & agreements, corporate, preparatory documents, and tender documents.
Why should you protect yourself and your customer?
- Avoid data leaks of personal & sensitive data of individuals and employees. Personal data leaks can result in financial obligations, including loans, identity theft, and other illegal use.
- Avoid espionage by other countries in areas of critical infrastructure in the utility sector and public transport.
- Avoid ransomware with double extortion when data from your notebooks, e-mail, and servers gets stolen, and you are blackmailed and forced to pay a ransom. Hackers will demand a ransom for not disclosing stolen data but might do it even after you paid.
- Avoid invoice (or other documentation) hacking - when your customer paid into the wrong bank account based on a fake invoice.
What can happen after a cybersecurity incident?
- You might have to pay financial penalties to the regulators (especially GDPR, NIS-2, different Privacy Acts, and others).
- You are responsible for public money, so you bear legal responsibility for any irregularities in public procurement.
- You might damage your reputation and the trust of citizens.
