Defending Against An Invisible Threat

Pragmatic Cybersecurity for
the Interconnected Business

THINK YOUR BUSINESS IS REASONABLY SAFE FROM A CYBER-ATTACK? Think again. The threat is so widespread that there is an entire black market built to arm hackers with the tools they need to breach your systems. Even worse, 50 percent of online traffic is automated. It does not sleep. It is ever-present, and it can be searching for your data—or your client’s data at any moment. Should a hacker gain access into your business’ network, the results could be devastating in terms of lost assets, lost credibility, and a tarnished reputation.

The good news is that there are a number of steps your business can take to not only protect your employee and client data, but also to demonstrate the level of diligence that is critical to your customers and insurers.

The first step is understanding the extent of cyber-attacks and familiarizing yourself with the various methods hackers use to infiltrate your system. Armed with this basic knowledge, you will be better equipped to recognize the signs of an attack and prevent a breach from happening in the first place.

This white paper is based on a presentation from Mr. Chris Ensey, COO of Dunbar CyberSecurity. By reading it, you will learn what constitutes a cyber-attack and the associated tactics. You will also learn about preventative measures that you can take to strengthen your company’s security.
