How Scary Are Breaches in Network Security?

Terrifying. Horrific. Dreadful. Ghastly. Petrifying.

Even if we added more synonyms, it wouldn’t do it justice. Network security breaches are pretty much one of the worst things that can happen to your company, and if you’re not taking network security seriously, it’s time to look at a few possible (nay, probable) consequences to a data breach.

Network Security Breaches Can Shut You Down. Permanently.

Suppose an ambitious hacker breaks into your network. Why? Any reason in the world. Let’s just say; he decided he just doesn’t like you. So, he’s going to show you a thing or two. He slips into your network, finds all your files, and – ZOT – gone. Maybe he decided to implant a few destructive viruses so your network would destroy itself? Perhaps he thought it would be fun just to delete EVERYTHING. It doesn’t matter. He did it simply because he could. And now he’s giggling while you’re left with nothing. Many, MANY companies cannot recover from an attack like this, and have to close their doors forever. Getting scary yet?

Network Security Breaches Can Cost You A TON of Money.

Ever heard of a little thing called ransomware? Oh, it’s neat: it’s a program that captures ALL of your data, makes it completely inaccessible to you or anyone within your company, and refuses to release it until you pay a ridiculous amount of money for the release code. They also often tell you your data will be deleted instantly if the police are involved. So – guess what many businesses in that situation do? Yep, they pay the ransom – so that they can get back to work and not lose their business. Hackers, 2 – you, zilch.

Network Security Breaches Can Ruin Your Reputation.

Chances are good you retain or transfer many of your clients’ sensitive information – billing information, business transactions, etc. If that data experiences a breach and your clients found out – how likely are they to continue trusting you to care for their information in the future? History has already given us that answer – many companies who suffer sensitive data loss find themselves in hot water not only with their clients but also with the government. Does PCI DSS compliance ring a bell? Fall out of compliance with it due to a lack of network security, and you – my friend – are in a heap of trouble.

Three Great Ways to Beef Up Your Network Security

When it comes to network security, you can never be too careful. The data companies store and transmit every day can be invaluable, and in the event it’s ever lost – or worse yet, falls into the wrong hands – it easily can turn into a nightmare situation. Thankfully, there are a few simple steps you can take to reinforce your network security.

Prevent the Possibility of Data Loss with Cloud Computing and Backup Recovery.

A combination of cloud computing and backup recovery is a great way to bolster your network security. With your data both immediately available for access on the cloud, along with a safe, recent backup of all your data offsite, the possibility of data loss instantly becomes next to nil. Enjoy your restful nights knowing your data is safe from spontaneously vanishing into oblivion.

Encryption, Encryption, Encryption.

Now that we’ve covered data loss, let’s look at another aspect of network security: data theft. Even the greatest network safeguards and securities can potentially be bypassed, leaving your data ripe for the picking. Or is it?! Imagine a sneaky hacker finally wriggles their way into your network and finds your data – only to realize that very data is so heavily encrypted, they’ll never make heads of it? That leaves you with one very hacked-off hacker . . . and one very satisfied customer. (That’s right, we’re talking about you.)

Hire an IT Consultant Team Who are Experts in Network Security.

While all the above network security measures are great, it’s also imperative to have a team who knows the ends and outs of network security. Doing so prevents any potential holes in you network security framework, and allows them (and you!) to keep close tabs on how secure your data is at all times. Now, all you have to do is locate one of those network security experts!
