The Advantages of Financial Services Partnering with an IT Company!
It was just another normal morning at the Financial Services company until 10 a.m., and an email from the HR Department asking employees to update their personal details.
The link is clicked, and before you know it, people are giving out their personal details to a cyber attacker.
People haven’t noticed that a letter has been misspelt in the email. It is a simple spoofing technique which causes more damage than imagined.
An hour later, people’s bank accounts are being drained faster than you can say “Cyber Crime.”
Your clients get wind of this and, second, guess the safety of their details, and the company is up in the air faster than those bank accounts were drained.
So smaller businesses must take email security seriously – because the cost of a cyber attack can’t just be measured in financial terms.
It comes with a loss of productivity and loss of customer trust.
Research by Deloitte found that 91% of all cyber attacks begin with a phishing email (an email that looks like it’s from someone you know but is actually from criminals).
That’s how web giant Yahoo was targeted a few years ago, exposing the contents of half a billion user accounts to criminals.
And though we often only hear about these high-profile cases, small and medium-sized businesses are prime targets for these attacks.
Your business needs to be as secure as it can be.
If you’re a financial services company and you’re not using an IT company, you might as well be playing the stock market blindfolded.
You don’t want to end up like those folks who invested in Blockbuster or Kodak, do you?
But fear not because an IT company is the superhero of the IT world. They swoop in and save the day, all while wearing a cape made of fibre optic cables.
They’re like the IT equivalent of Batman, but instead of fighting crime, they fight against network downtime and cyber attacks.
And let’s face it; financial services companies are like the Superman of the business world.
They’re strong, dependable, and can leap tall buildings in a single bound (or at least that’s what we like to think).
So, it only makes sense that they team up with an IT company to keep their systems as powerful as their business strategies. Why, I hear you ask?
