Cybersecurity Skills Are Non-Negotiable for Successful Startups

July 14, 2019

It’s a truism that technology is always changing. But what’s important is the way that it’s changing.

Protecting that information, therefore, is a priority for startup entrepreneurs. No matter what kind of business you run, you need systems in place to protect data, especially if you use so-called “personally identifiable information” of your customers. Global internet security threats are on the increase. Cybercriminals are beginning to discover that they can extract significant sums of money from firms that do not have a secure cybersecurity policy in place. Security naive companies run the risk of being subjected to ransomware attacks, or worse.
