In Spain, there are 100,000 cyber-attacks per day, mostly on small businesses. Access to your data is obtained through mobile phones, computers, email, etc.
Businesses can take almost one year to learn they were hacked. 60% of them will close later due to the damages caused. Through these attacks, customer data is stolen, your account transactions sink your reputation; they paralyse company activity by blocking the systems and then exorbitant compensation or extortion payments must be dealt with.
The Data Protection Agency usually intervenes on its own initiative and applies sanctions that range between 2% and 4% of your turnover
We are all vulnerable. The best thing is to protect yourself with Cyber Insurance that will cover legal defence, be responsible for heavy penalties and the damages suffered by your company, clean all computer material and make the entire system operational again in addition to potentially assuming the costs of cyber extortion.
At our Brokerage, we have a contingency plan for freelancers and SMEs that gives a solid and tested response to minimize the possible financial and reputational damage that a cyber attack may cause. Ask us!
