WHY DOES THIS MATTER TO ME?
BEING CYBERSAFE IS MANDATORY & YOUR ENTERPRISE DEPENDS ON IT

​​Cybersecurity is a critical, known and already prolific global threat to businesses, organizations and individuals. The entire economy and all stakeholders are adapting to this undeniable reality.

A HACKED BUSINESS IS CLOSED FOR BUSINESS

If you are hacked, you face disappearing from the new economy.

  • Your email accounts won’t work
  • Your web sites will be down (or worse)
  • Your servers are down
  • Your CRM, ERP, Productivity Tools, databases and files will not be available (or could be permanently wiped and deleted or corrupted)
  • You will not be able to buy or sell

THE THINGS CYBERCRIMINAL WILL DO WITH YOUR ONLINE ASSETS WILL GET YOU BLOCKED BY GOOGLE, YAHOO, MICROSOFT, COUNTRIES, THE WORLD…​

Perhaps even worse than going down, there are many lucrative and proven ways cyber-criminals will use your digital assets including:

  • Using your servers and accounts for illegal activity such as launching DDoS attacks
  • Spamming and sending millions of infected messages to your customers and stolen email addresses
  • Crippling your business by using 100% of your computing capacity for crawling, bitcoin mining or illegal downloads or streaming.

Sophisticated Internet leaders, governments and companies are constantly monitoring for suspicious and criminal activity which is one of the reasons hackers like to commit their crimes using YOUR computers, accounts and access.  Once detected:

  • Your servers and IP addresses will be blocked
  • Search engines like Google will delist you and / or redirect your visitors to a Safety Alert / Warning Screen
  • Your social networking, email, cloud, ISP and other accounts will be suspended
  • You could even lose your domain name

YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO ACCEPT PAYMENTS FROM YOUR CUSTOMERS

The fraudulent transactions, charge-backs, complaints and illegal activity could be detected by your credit card service provider, PayPal, Stripe, Amazon and other partners you rely on to accept payments from your customers.  Once detected you may quickly find that your ability to accept payment or receive bank deposits from your partners will be suspended indefinitely.

YOUR INSURANCE POLICY WILL NOT COVER YOUR GROSS OR WILLFUL CYBER-NEGLIGENCE

​Cybersecurity is a critical, known and already prolific global threat to businesses, organizations and individuals.  The entire economy and all stakeholders are adapting to this undeniable reality including your insurer.

  • As a general matter, insurance policies will not cover loss or liability if you were grossly or willfully negligent.  Not being cybersafe is simply gross or even willful negligence.
  • The threats included in our Cybersafe assessment are nearly universally accepted as the most common and significant cybersecurity issues for you and your business and represent the minimum level of care and diligence.
  • Potential liability is massive and could quickly exceed your policy limit even if your policy does apply.
  • Cybersecurity is such a critical liability issue that more and more insurers worldwide are including specific terms, coverage limitations and riders for this disaster level risk to reduce their exposure and liability for your mistake.

CRIMINAL & LEGAL LIABILITY

Gross or willful negligence regarding cybersecurity exposes you to more than substantial financial and reputation loss.  Even worse, you could face severe legal and criminal liability for failing to take well known and standard precautions and practices to protect customer information, confidential information and other sensitive data.  In addition, you may face liability for any criminal or illegal activity perpetrated by Hackers ​using your technology assets (think of someone using your gun than you carelessly leave on your front porch to commit a crime).

HACKERS COULD TRASH YOUR PERSONAL AND CORPORATE CREDIT RATING

Fraudulent transaction and creation of new accounts like credit cards and lines of credit by identity thieves can quickly and severely damage your personal and corporate credit rating.  You may suddenly find that you have breached financing covenants, triggered immediate or accelerated payment demands, be unable to draw down on your now frozen credit facilities and be denied new loans or financings.

EVEN MORE REASONS FOR STARTUPS AND INVESTORS

SMES, STARTUPS, E-BUSINESSES, MEMBER ORGANIZATIONS & ENTREPRENEURS

Cybersecurity Due Diligence Is Quickly Becoming a Standard Mandatory Requirement for Financings
The world is undergoing an exciting and rapidly unfolding new economy revolution fueled by entrepreneurs, startups and technology companies.  Fast growing companies are typically raising equity, debt and convertible capital to fuel their expansion and progress.  Founders and executives understand that due diligence is very typical and customary as part of any fund raising.  However, while cybersecurity has not been an area of focus for due diligence in the past, this is no longer the case and will soon become extensive and mandatory.

  • No matter how great you, your company or idea are, if you are not Cybersafe, you may not be able to raise money
  • Even if you are able to raise money or are not looking to raise capital, you are unnecessarily risking the success of your rocket ship to grossly negligent cyber-risk
  • If you are hacked and suffer substantial loss or liability, you may not be able to raise any more funding
  • You startup, SME, growth stage company may not have the financial resources and scale to pay the exceptionally high cost of your cyber-negligence
  • Your cyber-carelessness will expose you, your officers, directors, partners and fiduciaries to personal civil, regulatory and possibly criminal liability.

INVESTORS, ANGELS, FUNDS, LENDERS, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS & FIDUCIARIES

Real Cybersecurity Due Diligence is Now A Must
While spending substantial amounts for traditional financial, business, regulatory and other forms of due diligence an alarmingly high percentage of even the biggest and most sophisticated investors, funds, lenders and other financial ecosystem players are still neglecting to take cybersecurity due diligence seriously.  More and more cases are now being reported of investors, officers, directors, trustees, fund managers and other fiduciaries being held responsible for what is inescapably gross or willful cyber-negligence.

  • Your failure to conduct cybersecurity due diligence before investing in that great internet company results in your write-off of that investment when all of that great company’s customer data and proprietary technology are stolen.
  • Your role as a director, officer, advisor or fiduciary for that company exposes you to personal and corporate liability that insurance may not cover.
  • Your investors, LPs, partners, clients and regulators will have ZERO patience or understanding if your cyber-carelessness results in loss or liability.

While a full service assessment by large service providers are potentially cost prohibitive, given the exceptionally affordable cost and efficiency of our Cybersafe service, there is no longer any excuse not to address this clear breach of your fiduciary duty.
