Malware, ransomware, and other cyberthreats put your business in danger. Without the proper security solutions in place, your business risks data breaches, along with associated brand reputation damage, revenue losses, and compliance violations.

Data Breach Facts You Need to Know

The “2018 Cost of a Data Breach Study” from IBM Security and Ponemon Institute showed that data breaches have become larger and more expensive than ever before. Key study findings included:

  • The average total cost of a data breach was $3.86 million, up 6.4% year over year.
  • The average cost of each lost record from a data breach was $148, up 4.8% year over year.
  • The average size of a data breach increased 2.2% between 2017 and 2018.

Businesses — regardless of size or industry — are susceptible to data breaches. However, with a proactive, end-to-end approach to cybersecurity, your business can stop data breaches before they happen.

Tips to Guard Against Data Breaches

There is no one-size-fits-all solution to prevent data breaches. Fortunately, the following tips can help you improve your security posture and keep pace with evolving cyberthreats: 

  • Perform a network vulnerability assessment. Conduct a network vulnerability assessment to evaluate cyberthreats, identify any security vulnerabilities in your IT infrastructure, and develop and launch a vulnerability management plan that falls in line with your business objectives.
  • Deploy a unified endpoint management (UEM) solution. Leverage a UEM solution to manage your desktop, Internet of Things (IoT), and mobile devices from a single dashboard, consolidate your IT asset management tasks, and deliver consistent experiences across all employee devices and operating systems.
  • Offer end-user security awareness training. Provide end-user security awareness training to teach your employees how to protect their devices against cyberattacks. Additionally, update your security awareness training program regularly to teach employees how to guard against new cyberthreats.
