Computer users are regularly under attack from malicious online parties, seeking to steal their data or attack their performance.
Even Facebook users are not necessarily safe from having their PC security breached, as evidenced by Cambridge Analytica data scandal.
But it’s not only the big players who are the targets of hackers and cybercriminals.
According to Cybint Solutions, 43% of cyber attacks target small businesses, and 64% of all companies have experienced online attacks.
Verizon, meanwhile, suggests that 58% of malware attack victims are small businesses.
It is therefore incredibly important for PC users to ensure that their computers are protected from cybercriminals.
It is estimated that about $1 trillion will be spent on cybersecurity worldwide over the next three years.
It is therefore incredibly important that you don’t neglect this crucial element of your business.
If businesses fail to implement sufficient security measures, they risk exposing the company’s private data to a variety of other parties, including competitors.
Alternatively, they could lose their data altogether.
