Prioritizing Network Security is a Must

Prioritizing Network Security is a Must

Every business has their version of risk management. Nowadays, with all the technology organizations use for productivity, collaboration, and communications, managing risk can often be difficult. There are numerous threats that come from the Internet that could put a damper on productivity, create inefficiencies, or shut down production entirely. Regardless of how large or small your business is, you need to prioritize the security of your computing network.

Let’s Start with the Worst

If you are interested in mitigating the risk that unauthorized access to your network can cause, you need to consider the worst-case scenario. The worst thing that can happen to any organization is to have their network breached and have their clients’ and employees' personal and financial information stolen. This is on par with a fire ripping through your workplace or being caught up in a hurricane or tornado. It’s a slower death; and, with all the tools at your disposal today, it’s largely unforgivable, especially for the small business.

Not only would you have to deal with the malware or attack that compromised this information, but you would also have to explain to your clients and employees that their personal, financial, and often medical data has been exposed. There is nothing that can deflate a company quite as fast as a data breach. You lose credibility, lose revenue, and soon, have to scale your business back just to stay alive. Then you are the company who laid off their workforce, further souring your reputation to potential talent. The slippery slope could all be avoided by instituting a comprehensive network security strategy, that includes software protection and training.

What Needs to Happen to Avoid Tragedy

A comprehensive network security strategy locks away the sensitive information behind stronger security solutions, like an enterprise firewall, making it harder to access if some unwanted entity does find its way onto your network.

Additionally, you need to ensure that each member that has access to your company's network has had threat awareness training. Teaching them about the threats that come from letting unauthorized actors onto your business’ network, can go a long way toward helping you avoid negative situations.

We get how tough it can be on a business to invest in their network’s security, but with all the threats out there today, you have no choice.
