IT providers are continuously increasing the authentication intricacies of network security and offering alternative options for individuals to remain safe and secure while surfing the internet. While simultaneously, businesses are rapidly increasing their use of technology which means a greater level of security is required to shield against cyber-attacks. Most businesses around the world are becoming digitalized, whether this means online trading, having global customers or employees accessing the internet for work purposes. It has become impossible for digital businesses to remain safe if they do not implement a sturdy security and risk policy protecting employees from cyber-attacks.
It is especially important to embed such policies where businesses are directly offering customer-facing services. This is because the brand, reputation and efficiency of the organisation is hampered when customers fall victim to cyber-attacks. Word of mouth which is the easily seen form of marketing diminishes.
