Cyber security protects the integrity of a computer’s internet-connected systems, hardware, software and data from cyber attacks. Without a security plan in place hackers can access your computer system and misuse your personal information, your customer’s information, your business intel and much more.
It seems that everything now relies on internet and computers – entertainment, communication, transportation, medicine, shopping, etc. Even banking institutions run their business online.

How much of my life is dependent on the internet?
How much of my personal information is stored online?
How much of my business is accessible over networks?
How much of my customers’ information is accessible over networks?
