Cybersecurity is a complex topic, especially for the average business owner who may not have a great deal of technical experience with IT systems. That’s why InfoSystems is offering a free cybersecurity awareness talk during this year’s Scenic City Summit preconference on Oct. 3.
As we celebrate our 25th anniversary in business this year, it’s safe to say that we have watched the landscape of information technology shift drastically. And although the information technology and data security space continues to morph at warp speed, our commitment to providing the right services to business leaders in the communities we serve has remained the same.
In 2019, essentially every business relies on cloud computing and/or digital storage of sensitive information — which means essentially every business is at risk for that information being compromised. At this stage in the game, cybersecurity can’t be an afterthought or something reserved for “Big Business.” Our Scenic City Summit pre-conference event on October 3 will help area business leaders understand where to start implementing preventive security solutions.
Why Cybersecurity Matters
When hearing about large corporations dealing with security issues and data breaches, it’s easy to think, “But no one would ever target me.” It’s a sentiment we hear often — and unfortunately, it usually comes in the past tense: ”I never thought someone would target me” — as we’re working to resolve an attack.
You don’t have to be Capital One or Equifax to become the victim of a data security breach — and the stakes don’t have to be as high. We’ve seen much lower-scale system penetrations bring businesses to the brink of extinction.
We don’t share this information as a scare tactic, but rather to arm community and business leaders with the knowledge they need to protect their businesses from similar threats. As with most things in life, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Our goal is to help you see where your business’s cybersecurity risks lie and how to protect yourself, your employees, and your customers from falling victim to potential threats.
