Data breaches kill vulnerable companies: 67% of cyber-attacks are directed towards small to medium-sized businesses, with the average data breach costing the company $200,000. For larger companies, the average cost of a data breach in 2020 was $8.2M. Most alarmingly, 60% of small businesses fail within six months of a significant cyber event.

In June 2020, a large medical debt collection company had to shutter its business after a partner company was hacked. Retrieval-Masters Creditors Bureau Inc. reported that its assets were worth over $10 million when it filed for bankruptcy in New York. Good cybersecurity is attractive to potential investors: By 2022, 60% of organizations engaging in M&A activity will consider cybersecurity posture as a vital factor in their due diligence process. In a recent study, 53% of respondents reported that their organization had encountered a critical cybersecurity issue or incident during an M&A deal that put the deal in jeopardy. The evaluation and due diligence shouldn’t just be a point-in-time exercise; cybersecurity due diligence and risk assessment should be ongoing.
