Cyber Theft Can Cripple Business in 2013


Cyber theft is the biggest external threat for companies by targeting their confidential information/intellectual property. In 2012,  $13 billion was lost in cyber  theft.

Cyber-espionage is one of the fastest growing crimes in the United States. Government and corporate secrets are targeted daily. Domestic and international cyber thieves target organizations for profit and/or competitive advantage. There’s no way to stop an attack against your company’s network, however identifying threats as quickly as possible enables your company to minimize risk, cost and damage to your brand, corporate and employee’s reputation.

No company wants cyber theft pounding at the front door of their business online.

Accept the fact that if somebody wants to get in, they’re getting in, however you can make sure the attacks are minimized:

  • Implement conventional security tools and policies that make it much less likely that you’ll suffer a serious breach
  • Avoid over-reliance on security tools alone
  • Inventory, segregate and monitor critical data in real time
  • Implement appropriate governance to ensure effectiveness of tools and policies
  • Implement security awareness training at regular intervals
