Why Are Businesses Ignoring Security Threats?


A survey compiled at the RSA security conference showcases that lots of businesses are behind with proper security standards. Some companies are completely ignoring security threats due to lack of time or know-how. A trend that we want to stop right now!

Why are businesses not being proactive and implementing security protocols onto their company network? The answer may shock you. According to BleepingComputer, 26 percent of companies who have security bugs don’t have the time to fix them. This is mind boggling and scary! Businesses that are ignoring security threats need to implement a system to manage their network devices. For instance, perform updates during non-critical business hours. This way, when patches are made to the system, workers’ computers are not affected. Companies ignoring security threats are left wide open to hackers. Similarly, if a worker is not trained to spot security threats, chances are the computer may become compromised.
