Big or small, publicly held or privately owned, every business is worried it will be the next victim of a cyber-attack.
They’re right to be concerned.
Hackers launch thousands of attacks each day to gain access to private networks and sensitive data. With the average cost of each successful data breach approaching $4 million, the cyber-attack pandemic is like a lottery no business wants to play: millions of chances each year to lose millions of dollars.
To defend themselves, companies worldwide will spend more than $80 billion on cyber-security hardware, software and services in 2017. But that investment will do little to address one of the weakest links in the data security defense chain: employee behavior.
