How to Protect Your High-End Business from Cybercrime

Introduction

Cybercrime is among the leading dangers to a business’ success. Cybercrime
entails gaining unauthorized access to a computer system or an information
database. Cyberterrorists seek to steal, corrupt, alter or use data for a
ransom. So far in 2022, cybercrime has caused businesses and individuals a
total
loss of $6 trillion.

High-end businesses, such as selling pricey handbags and diamond stud
earrings, face the highest risk of cyber-attacks. Their high revenues make
them particularly attractive to cyberterrorists. As an owner of a high-end
