Because there’s so much money to be made from attacks against businesses, today’s cybercriminals are highly skilled and very well-funded… and that makes them an even bigger threat to enterprises.

Cybercriminals are running efficient organizations that have the resources to develop increasingly sophisticated threats that can:


Defraud enterprises

Steal valuable intellectual property

Disrupt day-to-day business operations

Steal confidential information about customers

Hold businesses to ransom – by encrypting and ‘locking up’ essential data

Direct financial losses – from the actions of the attack itself

Damaging publicity and loss of business reputation – that could take years to recover from

Financial and legal penalties – imposed by regulatory bodies

Indirect financial losses – owing to the costs to recover systems and data to their pre-attack state
