DEVELOPING IT SECURITY POLICY
In today’s world, where cyber-attacks and data breaches have become increasingly common, having a strong IT security policy is not only essential but imperative for any organization that wants to safeguard its assets and reputation.
An outdated IT security policy can pose significant risks to your organization, as it can leave your system vulnerable to sophisticated cyber-attacks, resulting in the theft of sensitive data, loss of intellectual property, financial damages, and loss of customer trust. According to a report by IBM, the average cost of a data breach in 2021 was $4.24 million.
