Cyber security is a growing need at this point in time as lots of data is processed online or on the Internet. It makes the information or data prone to theft, fraud, and attacks.

The data that needs to be saved from cyber-attacks may also need to be shared via online medium exposing it to a direct attack.
The reasons as to why Cyber security is a must for B2C companies are as follows:
- Point of sale intrusion
When a customer wants to buy your product he or she may want to opt for the use of plastic money. Plastic money i.e. credit card/debit card to pay for the product or service. At the point of sale, they would need to swipe their cards. During the payment process, data may be collected from the card. The data is of the payer which is collected through malware installed inside the point of sale device. The malware then save the details by reading the magnetic stripe of the card.
- Internal threat
An employee of the organization may easily be able to get the company data stored in his or her flash drive. The employee can then trade this data to the competitor company causing loss to his or her own company.
- Phishing attack
An impersonator claiming to be from a company may mail a client or customer some false information making the original company loose their client or customer.
An attack from outside in the form of software or mail can infect the companies data with a virus. This may lead to loss of the data or usage of it by the attacker for the exploitation of the customers.
