Your company heavily relies on its data networks to do business every day. All of your company's sensitive information, from accounts receivable to client information, is stored on your networks. It is critically important that your business remains safe and secure.

According to research done by IBM, the global cost of a data breach will cost a company an average of $3.86 million. With the price tag being that high, most companies will be able unable to recover. There will also be negative repercussions on how potential customers view your company. If the public knows that your company suffered a data breach, the general public will be hesitant to use your company's services, further impacting the profitability of your business. If your company can overcome the financial aspect of a breach, the loss of trust could be too much to overcome and could ultimately end up causing your business to shut its doors for good.

There are steps your business can take to remain protected. They are as follows:

  • Employee Training. Parker Data & Voice will train your employees on the best practices to avoid suspicious links or emails.
  • 2-Factor Authentication. Utilizing this strategy can lessen the chances of hackers gaining access to your network. Even if they can acquire your username and password, it is unlikely they would know the information required to pass the second authentication.
  • Encrypt your Data. Encryption is difficult to break, so even if a hacker gains access to your data, they would have an extremely difficult time breaking the encryption.
  • Mobile VPN. If your company has employees that travel and use public WiFi, then utilizing a VPN can help protect any sensitive information your employee may access.
