Recommendations

Being an agile company in the retail and wholesale segment means you have no time to lose on fixing the consequences of malware infections on your systems. You are encouraged to deploy a comprehensive multi-layered cybersecurity solution in order to prevent an infection from happening. Another big problem for this sector is the inappropriate use of IT resources by staff, which cannot be solved without regular cyber awareness training.

With the wide range of hosting options provided in your region, incidents with third-party cloud services have become usual. This means that in order to add an extra layer of defense for your systems, you should consider deploying a cloud security solution. The physical loss of devices and media is another big issue for your region, demanding special attention during cybersecurity training.
