Adding further…some myths and reality…
Myth – Cybersecurity is not relevant to our business…
Myth – We can not afford to employ cybersecurity analyst in our company at the moment…our majority focus is included in productivity at the moment…
Myth – I don’t think so we are at risk…due to low reachability and market reputation against their giant competitors.
Myth – I would rather wait and spend money if we encounter any issue in future…
Reality – Never stop assuming that the attackers are not testing your defence daily. Bad guys don’t follow a code of ethics.
Reality – Security is just an illusion. No system on this planet with even Air-Gap is 100% secure.
Reality – Today’s 5 pence spent on cybersecurity can protect you from $5000 loss in future.
