What is the biggest threat to your business ?
OUR business is the process of keeping YOUR business up and running, secure and profitable. You’re welcome.
However, there’s a serious new risk that’s becoming more prominent every day: cybersecurity attacks.
Cybersecurity isn’t just a buzzword designed to create fear. Even as a small to medium-sized business, your company, employee, and customer data is one of your most valuable assets. For example, how would you cope if your employees’ private information was leaked by hackers? Or your customers’ credit card data was stolen from your database? These are real situations that can cripple your reputation and business. It is widely accepted that as many as 60% of SMBs go out of business within six months of a cyberattack.
The smartest thing we can do as your support provider is to identify vulnerable areas, find the opportunities for a security data breach – plug those holes. The most critical risks are not only within your IT environment, but in the processes, policies and procedures that can leave you open to phishing and social engineering attacks.
- Every employee needs to be aware of their role in preventing cyber threats. Cyber security staff need to stay up to date with the latest risks, solutions and qualifications.
- Documented processes should clearly define roles, responsibilities and procedures. Cyber threats are constantly evolving, so processes need to be regularly reviewed.
- From access controls to installing antivirus software, technology can be utilised to reduce cyber risks.
A survey of a thousand SMBs revealed the following –
Over 65% have not identified or documented cybersecurity threats and vulnerabilities.
Over 55% have not trained their users to identify potential attacks, and how to respond.
43% have not created a recovery plan for a data breach.
We can’t afford to discover areas where you are vulnerable after a breach has occurred. By running a security risk assessment, we can identify critical areas to strengthen your security and develop a roadmap that fits your budget. Enterprise organisations pay as much as £50,000 for a risk assessment program. Today, it’s very affordable for us to perform an enterprise-quality assessment of your business’s risk. We have software and tools to map out your network and identify areas for review.
