According to the Ponemon Institute's 12th annual “Cost of Data Breach Study,” the global average for a data breach is $3.62 million, but the average cost of a data breach in the United States has hit an all-time high of $7.35 million.
That is quite a hit, for companies trying to turn a profit. But even more to the point- Without a proactive cybersecurity, what happens to your peace of mind? Do you want to always be on edge, by failing to fully understand how your reputation and information and then proactively doing something about it? You don’t have to.
On average, 1 out of 4 organizations experience a data breach in the United States and, globally, the average is 28%. Unfortunately, the likelihood of a breach increases every year. Criminals stole two billion records through breaches in the first half of 2017 compared to 721 million records in the last six months of 2016 (a 164% increase).
A data breach is an attack on a secure database that results in unauthorized access to financial, personal, and other private data.
At LA Creative, we have learned over the years that the secret to protecting businesses and their reputations is to follow the same systematic approach we employ when protecting our homes. Why should we treat our businesses any differently, than we treat our homes? Our businesses deserve and need the same level of precautions and deterrence.
With proactive and stealth cyber security strategy and implementation, cyber criminals can be stopped from having access to our most vital data and possibly your whole identity. Here is the LA Creative Cyber security approach and process-
IDENTIFY- First we explore- What data is important to your business? What level of tolerance do you have to lose any (all) of that data?How much downtime is acceptable?
PROTECT- We add traditional Anti -Virus Protections and Firewalls
DETECT- We add a 24x7 Security Operatons team and advanced endpoint protection
RESPOND- Every solution has 24/7 Security Team and Remediation procedure in place
RECOVER- Finally, here we create a customized recovery system in case we need it. Do you have a tested business continuity plan (disaster recovery) plan? What department (or data) must be restored first? Do you have a communications plan? With this information, your downtime will be reduced if not eliminated.
