Digital security is the protection of information and assets online, including devices, applications, data and network resources. It is the foundation for an organization’s security practices.

Cyber attackers are evolving quickly and using ever-more sophisticated tactics to access sensitive data, hijack networks and compromise systems. Small businesses are particularly vulnerable to attacks because of their limited resources and lack of security expertise. A successful cyberattack can have devastating consequences — from data breaches, fines and lawsuits to downtime that hurts productivity and damages customer trust.

Attackers often use tools like malware, ransomware, phishing and vishing, formjacking, cryptojacking and DDoS (distributed denial of service) to target the vulnerabilities in your system and gain entry. Once they do, they can wreak havoc with your business — from stealing financial data to damaging your reputation.

The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the move to cloud migration, digital transformation and remote work – all of which elevate business risk. For this reason, organizations must have an always-on defensive posture and clarity on the business risks remote users elevate to remain secure.
