Cyber risk is the risk of financial loss, disruption and/or damage to the reputation of the organization due to the failure of its IT infrastructure. Many businesses today are lacking an appropriate cyber security strategy, a comprehensive disaster recovery strategy, and a proactive incident response strategy. Phishing, spoofing, ransom-ware and social engineering are the most common methods used today, making the threats hard for untrained employees to decipher. Possible outcomes? Your business could face third-party civil litigation, a damaged reputation, and a possible attack diverting payroll, leaving your employees unpaid.
