The way the world conducts business has completely transformed due to the technological advances of the 21st century. Since you’re reading this, it’s clear that digitized information is the new norm for receiving and transmitting data. Much of our communication has turned into email, our critical information has turned to and array of 1s and 0s, and our payment methods have been broadened. Although most of us can agree that these changes have increased productivity, these new ways present their own set of risks. Wherever data or money is changing hands, there is an exposure. There are malicious parties at every turn ready to record and abuse the use of that data. October is Cyber Awareness month and that is why RISQ Consulting wants to remind you that cyber liability is a great place to start in mitigating the risk.
