Cybersecurity affects all companies of all sizes in all sectors. Threats are serious and evolving, and legal and regulatory requirements are growing. The damage businesses face mean IT Security is too big to ignore.
Today, Thursday 6th May is World Password Day 2021. Intel started World Password Day in 2013 to draw attention to the importance of passwords because they are the start of our defence against cybercrime.
It's an understatement to say that 2020 was disruptive. Businesses had to react, and react quickly throughout the whole year. They did that by relying heavily on digital tools.

Modern business relies heavily on technology. It has done for a while now and the struggles of 2020 only increased our dependence on technology.

While you may expect most cyber threats to come from outside of your business issues within your business can cause major breaches as well.
Not all threats are coming from hackers or cybercriminals trying daily to access your sensitive data. A growing number of threats are now coming from within your business.
2020 was the most challenging year for our generation. The issues we faced were unique and tested us personally and professionally. While 2021 has the potential to finally bring some respite it will also mean that the challenges we face as businesses are more recognisable.
