Cyber Risks and Data Disasters.

Did you know that 72% of all businesses and an incredible 87% of industrial manufacturers in Austria have been impacted by cybercrime? And did you know that for the past few years it isn’t just big corporations and state-owned companies that have been in the criminals’ crosshairs, but also increasingly mid-size businesses and private entities?

As these facts often come across as very abstract, we have compiled a selection of recent real-world data disasters. These specific examples give you a clear insight into the different threat scenarios to which corporate data is exposed nowadays. Perhaps one of them will be what it takes to convince you that now is the time to put your trust in Swiss Data Defence by MOUNT10. After all, there’s one thing we can guarantee with absolute certainty: Businesses that enjoy the protection of Swiss Data Defence procedures and a customized Defenset® from MOUNT10 will never land in this overview of chilling examples.
