A report from CBS Money Watch reveals that 80% of U.S. businesses have been hacked successfully. 

Cyberattacks are the fastest growing crime in the U.S., and they are increasing in size, sophistication and cost. By next year global cybercrime damages are predicted to reach $6 trillion annually.

That’s a big bite out of the world’s gross world product (GWP).

Obviously, cybersecurity can no longer be an afterthought or luxury project for organizations, companies and agencies. Cybercriminals are hitting organizations where it hurts – the bottom line, and in some cases also jeopardizing safety.

Cybercrime costs include damage and destruction of data, stolen money, lost productivity, theft of intellectual property, theft of personal and financial data, embezzlement, fraud, post-attack disruption to the normal course of business, forensic investigation, restoration and deletion of hacked data and systems, and reputational harm.

The cybersecurity concerns business owners face today are considerable, including:

Data Theft – Many cybercriminals target small and midsize businesses as gateways into larger ones, as small businesses usually don’t have the large and robust security protocols in place that prevent theft. 

But there are plenty of vulnerabilities to go around for both large and small businesses in a new age of cybersecurity threats. Understanding a hacker’s methodology can help mitigate the imminent threat of having data stolen. By staying ahead of the game when it comes to cybersecurity, you can prevent the massive damage that results from large-scale data breaches.

Cyber Espionage — Private cloud adoption has increased to 77% among organizations. Whether the thief is coming from the inside or outside, attacking private, public or hybrid cloud technologies, trade secrets and other valuable intellectual properties are at risk as well as customer data. That’s why setting the cloud up securely is important, and monitoring it is crucial.

Endless Attacks – The opportunity for organizations of all sizes to have their data compromised grows as the number of devices that store confidential data increases. The Internet of Things (IoT) with its massive interconnectivity of devices has opened new portals for creating an unprecedented attack surface security professionals never had to deal with in the past.

Cybersecurity professionals insist that business owners must make security plans with this attack surface in mind, and not think only about their business computers and mobile devices.

Still, despite all the stats and the warnings, the dramatic rise (in damage costs) of  cyberattacks only reinforces the sharp increase in the number of organizations unprepared for cyber war.

Most cybersecurity professionals recommend cybersecurity training for all businesses, organizations and agencies. This training should cover at a minimum:

  • Cybersecurity tools
  • Risk management
  • Fundamentals
  • The importance of updating systems as technologies evolve
