WaveStrong Protects Businesses From Cyber Attacks



By Tina Hansen
Pulse Writer


Fending off cyber attacks has become a big concern for businesses and a big expense. A single cyber-attack, aside from the ongoing risk from compromised data, can set a company back thousands of dollars, and as attacks continue to become more sophisticated, that cost increases.

Data shows that small and medium sized businesses are more at risk today than ever before, and the urgency to do something about it is tied directly to the bottom line. Since 2013, the cost of data breaches on businesses has risen by 23 percent, and it continues to rise. The average cost of cyber-attacks per organization in the U.S is $6.5 million. These numbers vary depending on the industry and size of the business, but recently small and medium sized businesses are taking the biggest financial hit proportionally.

Cyber criminals showed new levels of aggression in 2016, a year marked by extraordinary attacks, including multimillion dollar virtual bank heists.
