Have you secured your business from the very real threat of a data breach? A lot of takeaway company owners do not believe that this is something that concerns them. After all, what would a cyber criminal want with their small takeaway when there are massive health organisations and financial institutions that can be hacked instead? Thinking like this could get your business in serious trouble. The truth is that no one is immune to the threat of a data breach, and if you do not implement the necessary cyber security measures, the future of your takeaway could be in jeopardy.
Small business data breaches are up by 60 per cent in the UK, as 74 per cent of small companies suffered a breach in 2015. 90 per cent of large businesses also fell victim. What you need to recognise is that you have information hackers want to get their hands on – from customer payment details to employee records. While you may not have the most data in the world, you have enough for them to make a quick and profitable payday, especially if your security measures are easy to get past or, even worse, non-existent.
A lot of businesses have closed because of a breach, and this is because the damage is monumental. Could you afford to come back from thousands of pounds of non-compliance fees? What about the cost of finding the security vulnerability and addressing it? There is then consumer compensation to tackle and, of course, the fraud losses themselves. This is without even mentioning the severe damage to your reputation. Customers will lose trust in your takeaway, and trust is notoriously difficult to repair, which is why a lot of breached businesses have closed down.
We don’t want this to happen to you, which is why we have devised an affordable, cloud-based network security solution for takeaways. This is a PCI DSS Level 1 Certified solution. PCI DSS is a set of requirements that all businesses that take payment via debit or credit card need to adhere to. Not only can you be sure of full compliance, but also our array of security features will reduce the chance of a breach at your business by a considerable degree. One of our standout features is the creation of a Cardholder Data Environment (CDE), which ensures all card details and other confidential information is segregated from everything else on the network.
