Technology is the lifeblood of 99% of companies. Think of the different processes in your company that rely on technology to allow your company to operate daily: administrative functions, credit card processing, supply chain, process management, HR, sales, booking clients in. All of these whether they are your own systems or operated on your behalf by someone else, are now vulnerable to your own accidental errors or that of someone else’s and the threat of a cyber-attack or breach. The common misconception is this has to be from an outside source, it can come from a disgruntled employee, or even an accidental incident.
