Now more than ever, the threat environment for businesses today is constantly changing and complex.
Since the outbreak of COVID-19, the FBI reports that in the US alone, the number of complaints relating to cyberattacks to their cyber division has increased to 4,000 a day, a 400% increase on pre-COVID statistics.
Coupled with the fact that a cybersecurity incident costs on average US$3.86mn for an organisation, ”preparing for, responding to, and recovering from cyberattacks should be a strategic part of any business continuity plan,” says Fortinet.
