Every year, cyber thieves get increasingly creative when it comes to stealing your data.  From the Colonial Pipeline to the attack on JBS Foods, last year’s cybercrime had significant impacts on the everyday consumer, not to mention businesses. Cybersecurity Ventures predicts that ransomware will cost its victims more around $265 billion (USD) annually by 2031. That’s why we have summarized the 18 cyber security must-haves created by the Center for Internet Security (CIS) in this easy-to-use checklist. Don’t skip any of these business cyber security essentials; you could pay for it later.
