An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
The value of information in the modern world is incalculable, and sensitive data have become a very attractive target for cyber-criminals. Hacking into information systems has become so common that only cases concerning the largest institutions are catching the public eye.
However, the problem also occurs in small and medium-sized companies. Hackers use tools that automatically scan the network and search for security vulnerabilities. So, we are not asking whether you will be the target of a cyber-attack, but whether you are prepared for it. The key to ensuring the proper level of security is to correctly understand the threats and take precautions in order to prevent an attack.
