In this post, we’ll take a look at some of the damage that can befall your company, should it be the victim of a cyber attack.
1. It Costs You Money
One of the biggest impacts an attack can have on your company is that it can cost you money, both in terms of extra expenses and lost income. If the attack causes damage to part or all of your computer network, then you’ll have to spend money to replace those machines, and perhaps even reset your entire network setup. If customers are unable to access your website to make purchases, then you’ve potentially lost out on those sales, which can mean less revenue at the end of the year.
2. Customer Lawsuits
When you have customers, it’s likely that you have some of their personal and sensitive information, including emails, addresses, and perhaps even their Social Security numbers. A cyber breach that leads to that information being stolen can lead to customers bringing lawsuits against your company. This will cost you time and money, and could be seriously damaging not only to your company’s finances, but to its public image as well.
3. Physical Damage
You may not think that a cyber infiltration through your computer network could lead to physical damage, but it’s important to remember what types of systems are automated through your network. Factories can have automatic shut-off safety systems that could fail if the network is compromised. This can lead to fires, equipment malfunctions, and a number of other problems that could lead to property damage and physical injury.
4. Losing Valuable Files
With some cyber attacks, the hacker isn’t looking to steal valuable information, but they’re instead looking to delete or remove valuable files. The data stored on your network can become compromised, which could render them useless or irretrievable. A hacker may also hold your files ransom, and demand that you pay a certain amount before they release or unlock your valuable information.
There are many other ways that a cyber attack or network breach can damage your company, and at Shadow IT Group, we want to do whatever we can to prevent your business from being vulnerable.
