What type of data does your company process?
- You store and exchange documents and e-mails like application documents, personal & sensitive data of candidates and employees, contracts, payrolls, and scans of identification documents.
- You collect these documents from individuals, send them to your customers, and exchange documents and e-mails internally.
- You exchange documents with law firms, external accounting offices, auditors, banks, insurance brokers, marketing agencies, etc.
- You exchange documents and e-mails internally - including your corporate documents, financial statements & agreements.
Why should you protect yourself and your customer?
- Avoid data leaks of personal & sensitive data of candidates and employees. Personal data leaks can result in financial obligations, including loans, identity theft, and other illegal use.
- 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 a ransom for not disclosing stolen data but might do it even after you paid.
- Avoid espionage - especially all data of candidates and employees. Espionage can result from hackers acting on behalf of competitors or independently looking for customers for your data.
- 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, different Privacy Acts, and others).
- You will lose the trust of candidates and customers after a data leak. You should expect a case to be filed against your business.
- You will lose your time, money, and customers.
- Your reputation will be damaged, which could end your business.
