So, how can Cyber Security Risks impact your practice?

Should your practice be struck with a Cyber Security Threat, your business may be impacted by the below:


If your practice is hit with a Cyber Threat that results in stolen or compromised data, this can cause significant financial damage to your business, especially if a client’s personal account and payment details are intercepted. 

Breaches of private or sensitive information about clients and/or staff members may find you in breach of legislation resulting in significant fines.

Loss of Productivity and Revenue: 

A Cyber Threat will often result in a lockout of your professional servers. This results in operational systems and computers being unavailable. Furthermore, there is an inability for yourself or staff members to complete their jobs. 

Additionally, if data is lost or corrupted, it is difficult to restore. This may result in a costly solution that takes quite some time to regain data, leaving you out of operation.  

Damage to your Brand:

Once you have faced and conquered the above, the final but most important issue often encountered after a Cyber Security Threat, is damage to your brand. 

With Cyber Security Threats, affected parties must be notified of security breaches. The inability to protect your operations and systems from such a breach may reflects poorly on your operations.
