Cyber Security Health Checks
Businesses are heavily reliant on technology to manage critical information and effectively run their business operations to deliver better service, experience and productivity. However, businesses that embrace technology have increasingly become targets of hackers and organised crime. Cyber-attacks are increasing, especially those that involve data leakage or the compromise of sensitive business or customer information. Reputational damage, legal action and fines or compensation are among the many consequences victimised companies face. More so with the regulated population.
