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.

Your business relies on data exchange with suppliers and customers. Cyber incidents that may happen within this exchange and the physical loss of devices or media should be given special attention during cybersecurity training.
