Security is a huge focus for businesses moving into the new year. According to Barclay’s research as outlined in our recent IT spending infographic, 75% of businesses plan to invest more into improving their IT systems security in 2016. Why? Security breaches are happening more and more frequently – and not just to big name organizations. IBM estimates that businesses are attacked an average of 16,856 times every year. While not all of these attacks are successful, taking the necessary steps to beef up your security is going to be important as these attempts increase.
Here are a few ways that your organization can improve their business IT security:
One out of five small businesses falls victim to cyber-crime every year and of the businesses that are breached, 60% go out of business within 6 months of the attack. It’s time to start investing in the security of your business and your client and customer data. Don’t wait to strategize how you’ll improve company security in 2016.
