Recommendations

You may not have a dedicated IT person in your team, but you should know that you will, at some point, have to deal with malware – if your company operates with financial transactions, it's very likely that your business will come under cybercriminal fire sooner or later. To effectively counter this threat, install a multi-layered security solution that fends off malware, protects your valuable data from ransomware, and allows for safe banking.

Companies working in the financial sector of your region report experiencing disruption to their services, due to DDoS attacks and the inappropriate use of IT resources by staff. To ensure that doesn't happen anymore, you are advised to implement a complete integrated DDoS attack mitigation strategy, and reserve budget for cyber awareness training, which you should commission from professionals.
