What Happens When Your Business Website Is Hacked

One of the most dangerous phrases used by small businesses is: “It’ll never happen to us.

According to studies, 71% of cyber attacks occur at businesses with fewer than 100 employees. 

The issue of cyber security for small businesses is made even more pressing by new European regulations aimed at protecting customer data. The EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation will come into force in 2018 and could result in companies being fined up to €20m or 4% of their annual turnover, whichever is greater, for allowing any security breaches to compromise their customer data.

Reputation Damage

A data breach isn’t just a small glitch it is a damaging mistake that a company oftentimes is unable to shake off, Side effects can include other organisations’ unwillingness to partner with a company that has faced a data breach.

Financial Damage

This cost escalates when organisations hire external IT professionals to help mitigate a security breach — something that would have been much more cost effective prior to a breach

Ousting “responsible” parties

Along with the profit loss and reputation damage comes the inevitable firing of a high profile executive who at one point oversaw a web site, or internal computer system that was compromised.

Bulletproof Your Cyber Security

Stay ahead of the hackers with penetration testing

What we do, pen-testers AKA certified ethical hackers (CEH) are computer and networking experts who systematically attempt to penetrate computer systems or networks on behalf of business owners for the purpose of finding security vulnerabilities that a malicious hacker could potentially exploit. We are able to provide context around any found vulnerabilities, impact, threat and the likelihood of a breach in any information asset

The majority of successful cyber attacks are not that sophisticated but can cause serious commercial damage. By getting the basic defences right, businesses of every size can protect their reputation, finances and operating capabilities. Burying your head in the sand may save money in the short term, but the cost of hacking could range from minor inconvenience, reputation damage, loss of customer data, fines and ultimately company closure.

More Than Just An IT Check

The best way to stop attackers is to think and act like an attacker

The approach to using an ethical hacker differs from the traditional internal IT team approach, as the focus is shifted from a defensive to an offensive mindset. While the importance of solid defences can’t be understated, augmenting this with ethical hacking can greatly increase the resilience of an organisation’s networks. This approach tests the effectiveness of the controls in place and may identify previously unknown exposures.

 

Using real-world testing on your network determines areas where you may be vulnerable.
