The question is not IF you are going to be hacked, but WHEN

In today’s world of business, a form of voice access is an absolute must. One of the most popular, and still growing forms of technology includes voice over IP (VoIP) - more specifically, Session Initiated Protocol (SIP). In other words, an IP connection is used to pass voice data over to another device. This technology comes with many amazing benefits, hence its steady climb in popularity. These include increased flexibility, it can be easily scaled and of course it can be budget friendly. However, with every upside, there is always a sense of caution that comes with it.

I will begin with the obvious. Of course, any sort of data transferred over the Internet is put at some form of risk. And as a company, your team surely does their due diligence by putting up the right firewalls or session border controllers, opting to use a VPN and research other forms of protection specific to your business.

When it comes to getting hacked - it is not a question of how you can prevent it or if it will ever happen at all. Because no matter the precautions your team takes, it will be a matter of WHEN it will happen. And an even bigger question is what will be done about it?

There are two major things at risk when you get hacked: private company data and your company’s monetary funds.

And since a compromised system is inevitable, how is it fair to stick you with the high price to pay?
