What type of data does your company process?

  1. You store  and exchange different documents and e-mails of your consumers: invoices, financial statements, bank statements, tax returns, agreements, bank guarantees, insurance policies, etc.
  2. You exchange documents and e-mails internally - especially customer documents mentioned above, your corporate documents, financial statements, employee records, contracts, etc.
  3. You cooperate and exchange different document types with HR agencies, advertising companies, and other suppliers of goods and services.

Why should you protect yourself and your customer?

  1. Avoid espionage from hackers acting on behalf of competitors or independently looking for customers to buy your data. Data leaks of your customer documents can destroy all work and reputation.
  2. Avoid data leaks - when everybody can know about your customer documents.
  3. 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 demand ransom for not disclosing stolen data but might do so anyway.
  4. Avoid invoice or other documentation hacking - when your customer paid using the wrong wire transfer information based on a fake invoice.

What can happen after a cybersecurity incident?

  1. You will lose the trust of your customers after a data leak. In tough times, it is not uncommon for competitors to engage in criminal behavior designed to destroy your business.
  2. You might have to pay financial penalties to the regulators  (GDPR, DORA, NIS-2, Privacy Acts, and others).
  3. You will damage your reputation as a company, which can be detrimental to your business.
