As a business owner, it is essential to know that your business is a prime target for cyber criminals. Whether you operate in the financial, retail, manufacturing, or a related industry, your business holds sensitive information that hackers would love to get their hands on. In recent years, we’ve seen the likes of Target, Sony, Ashley Madison, and many other companies fall victim to data breaches.
To help not only stop these data breach incidents, but also to protect consumers’ personally identifiable information (PII), government and industry associations created cyber security regulations. These regulations are guidelines that provide the minimum security requirements companies must follow to safeguard data. Staying compliant is the best defense against cyber threats.
