Getting pulled over and found without auto insurance can cost you hundreds, but getting caught without cybersecurity can cost you millions. Dr. Romeo Farinacci, Cyber Security expert and former Program Director for IT and Cyber Security at Grand Canyon University’s College of Science, Engineering, and Technology (CSET), talks about the importance of cybersecurity programs for your company. Farinacci makes the point, “Without effective cybersecurity tools and best practices in place (i.e. appropriate patches, periodic scans, or hardened network devices) the likelihood of data loss or intellectual property leaks as result of hacks, ransomware, viruses, or simple human errors in data management increases substantially, thereby reducing an organization’s profitability, market value, trustworthiness, and ability to be competitive.” He follows up by talking about the ROI on these types of programs and the savings down the road of programs like these. This article has been referenced by VP’s that needed evidence to support cybersecurity investments for their companies and it may prove worthwhile for you, too.
