We don’t need to tell you the statistics of hacks that are happening right this second or share with you the impact a breach can have. We know that being petrified will not get you anywhere, so it’s better to roll up your sleeves and do something - which is exactly what we like to do.
Improve your security
There are many ways to improve your security and make sure your company does not fall victim to a hack. Make sure you have them all in place and fully functioning. Use tools to assess your cyber security, like pentesting in which hackers are testing the piece of software you would like them to check. This will contribute to less hacks and a more secure company. But to really unleash the full capacity of your company on a security level, you should go one step beyond.
To go one step beyond
What do we mean by that? Having your security in check is the basis from which you can grow into a stable, trustworthy companion for your client or partner. By building that level of security, your partners or clients can rest assured their data is safe. You can never 100% guarantee it, but you will reap the benefits if you go for 110% effort - just a little bit beyond their expectations. How to go one step beyond? By starting a bug bounty program, for example. The volume of hackers differs here from pentesting, as well as the reward-structure. Giving each hacker the chance to find something, will give you a broader range of skills.
Don’t be the bearer of bad news
Having to explain that you’ve experienced a breach or fell victim to a hack is never nice. Especially not when you have to go into this conversation with stakeholders. Of course, it can happen to anyone but it would be great to not have those conversations too often. Having your security in check means you can go one step beyond: a hack or breach being the exception rather than the rule will help establish trust and reduce the friction with your partners. It also is a great signal to potential customers: you’ve set a great example and good standard and apparently, you keep your promise!
Being sure = to gain confidence
Being sure that all the security solutions that you’ve implemented are working and thriving, can give you a major confidence boost. Paving the way to pursue market opportunities that you previously did not even dare to dream of. Having a secure company also unleashes plenty of staff capacity! You still have to investigate every vulnerability found, but when your security solutions are up and running, you’ll notice they will get less. Isn’t that what we all want?
