A Real Life Fright Fest for Your C-Suite: Data Breaches [Graphic Recording]

Today’s cyber threat landscape often strikes great fear in the hearts of many CEOs, CFOs, and CIOs. Corporate leaders face a wide-range of ever-evolving threats from an often faceless enemy. The following graphic recording from SC&H Group’s IT Advisory Services practice shines a creative, Halloween-themed light on how we can help you confront your top data security concerns, and fight cybercrime together.


What’s the one thing scarier than the Day of the Dead for most CEOs, CFOs, and CIOs? It’s the threat of a business-halting data breach.

By 2019, market estimates predict that cybercrime will cost businesses more than $2 trillion – an astoundingly frightful figure. And, with many experts claiming it’s not a matter of “if”, but rather, “when,” it is crucial to take proactive measures now that combat pending threats.

But, what if a data breach becomes a harsh reality versus a potential nightmare? Businesses must also create thorough security breach response plans to thwart further financial, reputational, operational, strategic, and compliance risks in the event of an attack.

Each October, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance host National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) to raise awareness about cybersecurity. With an overall theme of “Stop.Think.Connect,” this campaign aims to unite public and private sector partners in making the Internet safe and secure as a part of our shared responsibility.

Perhaps it is a coincidence that NCSAM falls on the same month we collectively celebrate ghouls, goblins, and all things that go bump in the night? Or, maybe it’s the perfect time to reflect on the realistic potential of a data outbreak more horrific than a zombie apocalypse.

Regardless of the reason – or the season – it’s time to gear up as your favorite superhero, and fight the evil forces lurking within the darkest places of the Internet, together.

Is your company fully prepared to defend against – or respond to –data breaches? If you would like to enhance cybersecurity within your organization, please contact Jeff Bathurst, Leader of IT Advisory Services at SC&H Group, here.
