Security may be the most important characteristic of your business IT environment. Availability might seem more critical, but an available, insecure environment is a business crisis waiting to happen. Effective security that meets or exceeds compliance with all relevant regulations and requirements is essential to the success – and survival – of your business.
Security threats are growing in number, sophistication, and ability to inflict damage on your business, customers and partners. That damage – to your ability to do business, and to your business’ reputation – can be severe, expensive, and lasting.
- The 2018 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report identified more than 53,000 security incidents and 2,200 confirmed data breaches in the preceding year.
- The Ponemon Institute 2018 Cost of a Data Breach Study found the global average cost of each data breach to be US$3.86 million, a 6.4-percent increase over the previous year. The same study found that each stolen or lost record that contained sensitive or confidential information cost the affected companies an average of $148.
- The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires that every business that does business with European Union (EU) citizens must protect their personally identifiable information (PII). Non-compliance penalties are as high as four percent of a company’s worldwide annual revenues or 20 million Euros, whichever is higher.
Successful protection against cyber attacks and threats starts with your knowledge of your entire IT infrastructure. You need to know as much as possible about your network and everything that connects to it. This is especially true as you automate patch and update installation and seek to discover and resolve vulnerabilities. You also need comprehensive, timely knowledge about changes to your IT assets and environment. Such knowledge can alert you to possible security threats and vulnerabilities, such as unauthorized new device connections or missing or outdated software patches and updates.
Fusion GBS can help.
