It is no longer a question of “if” a cyberattack will happen, it’s a question of “when.” And unlike large, established businesses, that may have resources specifically allocated to mitigating security breaches, growth stage companies can’t afford setbacks. Consider:
- Every 14 seconds, a business falls victim to ransomware
- Every 39 seconds, a computer is hacked
- On average, it takes a business more than 200 days to detect a data breach
And what could a security breach, exposing-highly confidential customer data, mean to a company that is working to secure an additional round of funding or a game changing new contract?
In this webinar, Wipfli representatives will share how growth stage companies can leverage cybersecurity risk management practices, to not only secure information, but use cybersecurity as a competitive differentiator. We will share information about how you can leverage cybersecurity to drive strategy, specifically to:
- Increase platform stability
- Increase customer confidence
- Gain access to larger markets
- Protect their value in M&A activities
