Here’s 9 ways a cyber attack can cost you big, and it’s not always financial.
1 The embarrassment of appearing irresponsible
2 Costs of protecting employee and client data (buying credit monitoring)
3 Reputational damage, loss of credibility in the marketplace (your competition will have a heyday over this!)
4 Loss of clients for failing to protect their data, or not being able to service them
5 Legal action (this will suck up all of your time)
6 Legal fees to handle a breach
7 Information Commissioner (ICO) and GDPR fines
8 Recovery of data corrupted or “locked” from ransomware
9 The real cost of downtime and lost productivity
