What type of data does your company process?
- 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.
- You exchange documents and e-mails internally - especially customer documents mentioned above, your corporate documents, financial statements, employee records, contracts, etc.
- 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?
- 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.
- Avoid data leaks - when everybody can know about your customer documents.
- 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.
- 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?
- 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.
- You might have to pay financial penalties to the regulators (GDPR, DORA, NIS-2, Privacy Acts, and others).
- You will damage your reputation as a company, which can be detrimental to your business.
