Cybercrime is a very real threat to wealthy individuals and their businesses. Not only is your personal data at risk but also the data of your employees and your organization’s customers. Cyberattacks and ransomware attacks are increasing and exploiting weaknesses such as the Internet of Things (IoT), cybercrime awareness, and insufficient training.

 

Today, I share the true cost of ignoring cybersecurity to the self-made nation, which could result in going out of business. I highlight how large numbers of companies still don’t have a dedicated cyber resource and the high value of fines introduced in recent privacy regulations. I also discuss the cost to the economy from cybercrime and how small to medium-sized enterprises are risking their existence by ignoring the rising number of cyber threats.
