It doesn't matter how late you start. As long as you have the willingness to adapt, you're bound to succeed.” Anonymous

This holds true, especially for businesses sustaining growth during this lockdown period. New problems are always on the rise, however, adapting to new ways of working through them is what ensures business success in the long run.

Although the crashing economy may seem to be the biggest challenge of 2020 for all businesses, however, CYBER-THREAT is a real concern that you cannot afford to neglect.

The economy will soon bounce back but cybercrime has been around for long and will continue to threaten businesses worldwide. Here are some statistics showing the depth of this problem:

1. According to the U.S. National Cyber Security Alliance, over 60% of businesses faced cyber threats in 2018.

2. As per Safeatlast, the healthcare industry alone suffered a loss of $25 billion due to weak cybersecurity infrastructure, in 2019.

And all these numbers are surging, every single day. With every business being compelled to work from home lately, cyber-attacks have reached unprecedented levels.

So what should be your ‘Plan Of Action (POA)’ to tackle this threat? The simple answer is — CYBERSECURITY.

If you still don’t have a cybersecurity solution in place, then you’re risking your overall business growth. 73% of businesses consider their cybersecurity services as the driving factor behind their growth. (Source)

But before you make a decision, you should familiarize yourself with cybersecurity terms and solutions. This will help you make the right decision for your business.

What is Cybersecurity?

Cybersecurity is the methodology of protecting your computer systems, mobiles, wireless systems, the data on all these systems, and the network infrastructure that powers such systems.

If you are running a business in 2020, you certainly occupy the digital space to some extent. That said, you definitely need cybersecurity solutions to protect your business and employees from online threats, malware, hackers, and scams that can hurt or worse, put you out of business. 

What Are The Different Types of Cybersecurity Solutions?

We’ll explore each of these solutions to see how they differ from each other, to help you gauge what suits your business needs:

1. Physical Security

Your business software is not the only target of cyberattacks, your physical location is equally at risk and equally important.

If your care about backing your business with 24*7 video surveillance & monitoring then you should opt for physical cybersecurity solutions.

These physical solutions will keep your data, hardware, and workplace physically secure, giving you the peace of mind you need during non-working hours and holidays. 

Here’s what you can expect from this solution:

  1. Fire Detection
  2. 24*7 Monitoring
  3. Video Surveillance

3. Cybersecurity-as-a-Service
