Holiday season is over, but do you wish you’d flown business class? On one hand, Economy saves your pennies but on the other, you could get the sub-par service (and the child behind you kicking your seat for the entirety of the flight.)
Is the extra expense really worth it?
Well, when it comes to protecting your business, it definitely is! Upgrading your tech to Business Class could one day save your business!
According to Ebuyer statistics, if you’re a small or medium-sized business (SMB), then there’s a 43% chance that you’ll experience a cyber breach and a 60% chance your business will close within 6 months of the attack.
You must take data protection seriously and be more diligent against potential threats. Cyber crime recovery includes identifying and fixing the problem, replacing damaged software, obtaining specialist IT consultants and quite possibly hiring a solicitor. Add to that the potential fine, you can see how the costs could add up. Starting to wish you’d taken that Business Class option now?
In a recent report published by the government’s Cyber Streetwise campaign SMB victims disclosed: 89% felt that attacks impacted their reputation, 30% reported a loss of clients, and 25% received negative reviews. All potentially devastating to businesses!
