How to Prevent Cybercrime

Today, organizations are adopting new security technologies and developing initiatives at an unprecedented rate in order to better protect themselves against cybersecurity threats, data breaches, and data exposure. You may not realize it, but even with massive innovations in technology and data privacy solutions, cybercrime is actually on the rise. 

So much so that researchers at Cybersecurity Ventures concluded that cybercrime will cost the global economy $6.1 trillion annually by 2021! If this were measured as a country, it would be the third-largest economy after the USA and China. With this growing cyber-fraud economy on the rise, business leaders are now left scratching their heads trying to figure out more effective ways to stay protected against today’s technologically-advanced threats. In this article, we will go over how business leaders can stay more resilient against cybercrime in this rapidly-evolving environment.

Work With a Trusted Advisor
As an organization looks to improve its security posture or adopt new technologies, it’s critical to follow the old phrase, ‘work smart, not hard.’ What we mean here is you can benefit greatly from working with an organization that has years of industry experience in data security rather than trying to take on this massive project with internal resources. 

In our experience, third-party security focused business partners come equipped with technical knowledge and industry expertise that allow you to quickly implement new solutions or improve upon your existing security posture. This simple delegation of responsibility allows your organization to keep internal costs low while getting access to the expertise of vetted industry experts in the data security niche.
