You value the safety and security of your home, car, and possessions — so you take measures to protect them from intruders. You have locks, alarms, CCTV, and maybe a big gnarly dog. Businesses want to feel the same way about their data and networks — so they take measures to prevent intruders with Cybersecurity.

Cybersecurity is the set of technologies and processes that protect against attacks on network devices, computers, and programs, which are aimed at accessing, altering, destroying, or extorting sensitive information or disrupting business processes. It includes preventative methods like employee training, as well as mitigation measures for when breaches do occur like incident response and disaster recovery planning.

A strong cybersecurity strategy shows customers and employees that the company takes privacy seriously. It can also help build brand loyalty and increase customer retention.

It helps businesses minimize the impact of breaches, which can damage their reputation and lead to loss of trust with their customers. It can also lower operational costs by reducing time spent fixing and recovering from breaches.

The best way to mitigate cyber threats is to invest in cybersecurity technology that protects endpoints (like computer, smart device, and routers); networks; and the cloud. This is done by using tools such as next-generation firewalls, DNS filtering, malware protection, antivirus software, and email security solutions. Additionally, cyber security can be enhanced through the use of a virtual private network and by requiring multi-factor authentication beyond username and password.
