Customer trust is critical in a time of widespread cybercrime and data privacy attacks. Startup owners now face the challenge of building consumer confidence as they build their business.

Cyber threats and privacy issues can seriously affect your enterprise. Recent studies show that 87% of consumers will do business elsewhere if a company is untrustworthy.

Do not let your startup be part of the statistics. As you build the business from the ground up, make sure that you are setting up a robust cybersecurity as well. Take time to know the different cybersecurity trends and threats, much like you to take time to know other aspects of building and growing your business. Knowing that it’s necessary to protect digital systems is one thing, though: actually protecting them is another. The potential cost of investing in security services can lead entrepreneurs to question whether it’s better to leave their systems unsecured until they’ve bolstered their revenue — but that option is extremely risky.

The advancement of technology and the wide use of digital media is making attackers smarter by the day. Further, these cybercriminals take advantage of individuals and firms who pay less heed to cybersecurity. They target everything from a newly-launched blog to an established online store to gain access to sensitive information.

Every other day we read news related to cybersecurity threats like ransomware, phishing, or IoT-based attacks.
