Life Cycle of a Data Security Breach
You may be thinking…”It could never happen to me” or “My business is too small for a criminal to attack.” Unfortunately, that may not be the case. Criminal attacks targeting the restaurant industry, and in particular, independent restaurant operators, have increased significantly for many reasons. Hackers continue to increase in sophistication, but rely on three main areas of vulnerabilities when planning their attacks: insecure network security and remote access, lack of firewalls and lack of anti-malware software.

Fines, penalties and forensic costs can overwhelm your business, severely damaging your reputation and in extreme cases putting you out of business.Click here to watch a video of the impact a data security breach can have on your business.
