Jennifer Kurtz, the cyber program director at the Colorado-based nonprofit Manufacturer's Edge, recently spoke about cybersecurity and data breaches at the New Mexico Manufacturing Extension Partnership's Manufacturing Day.
Kurtz states that organizations should be concerned about cybersecurity if they want to keep their business, reputation, customers, money, and employees, and not get sued.
She noted that phishing, ransomware, and security breaches not only lead to stolen or compromised data, but also financial loss and even closure in some cases for the targeted organization. Most businesses are at risk of a cyberattack, especially if they, like pretty much every organization, conduct business over the internet and store digital data.
