It is reasonable for large enterprises to pay attention to network security, but when it comes to the network security of small and medium-sized enterprises, many people will think that it is unnecessary for small and medium-sized enterprises to pay too much attention to their own network security because there is nothing “valuable” anyway. However, once small and medium-sized enterprises are confronted with attacks, whether from hacker attacks, internal business information leakage or from natural disasters, the losses may be more than that of large enterprises. A serious network security accident may make small and medium-sized enterprises with low anti-risk ability to face the risk of closing down.
Small and medium-sized enterprises often feel that network security is the business of large enterprises. Because big enterprises will have the ability to invest human, financial and technical strength into protecting information assets and network security threats. But it is precisely because large enterprises have done it, while small and medium-sized enterprises have done nothing, making the latter an easier target.
Perhaps small and medium-sized enterprises will say that we have not put assets or confidential information on the Internet, and the other party won’t get anything if we are attacked. However, the actual situation is far from simple. Even if there is no valuable information, the company’s computer may become a “platform medium” and become a tool for hackers to attack others; perhaps your products and services will become a springboard, providing attackers with access to other higher-value targets. More importantly, realize that not all attacks are for profit. Revenge from others (such as those who resent being fired, etc.) or just impulsive attempts to sabotage often occur.
No system is 100% secure. However, it is possible to find a balance between security requirements and the company’s capabilities through reasonable planning and management. Therefore more and more businesses are investing in IT Security Professional, either they hire from the market or train their existing IT staff to be cyber-security savvy.
