5 Reasons Nigerian Businesses Should Take Cyber Security Seriously

Since the internet trend started in the 1990s, many governments and business activities, and state secrets have moved from offline to online. But with hackers on the prowl wanting to steal and expose sensitive information, cyber security is ever more important.

In Nigerian companies, cyber security is arguably not a top priority due to the economic recession. Even before the recession, cyber security was barely a priority.

However, when we look at what is happening around the world, cyber breach is on the rise. This breach has led to shocking revelations and release of trade secrets that are not meant for the public. In line with this, Jumia Travel gathers 5 reasons Nigerian businesses should take cyber security serious.

Enable more trusted transactions online

Online transactions are widely used today because many businesses have moved online. If a customer patronizes your business and loses his money, it is really bad for the reputation and growth of your business. These customers will not recommend you to friends. Hence, with cyber security, your website should be hack proof 24 hours.

It prevents information espionage

There have been widespread reports of China allegedly attacking US companies to steal trade information. These trade secrets can be used to improve China’s businesses. No business in Nigeria will like this. You will guard your trade secrets jealously to have the competitive edge. But if you disregard cyber security, sooner rather than later, your trade secrets will be everywhere.

Makes your business less vulnerable

Hackers can wreck any business if you are targeted. They can take your website offline for hours and if your cyber security is weak, you will lose money as well as customers. So, with cyber security, your business will be less vulnerable. This is even worse if you are a small business.

It can cost your business

The cost of ignoring cyber security can be very devastating and can cripple any business. If you are a financially oriented business, you should never joke with cyber security because you can lose money in a single swoop!

Cyber criminals are always at work

Findings show that 3.5 new threats happen every second according to Trend Micro. You can only stop them by having an impenetrable cyber security. This is not negotiable if you are an online business!
