Network Security Services
As technology continues to evolve and standards and regulatory demands increase, Small to Medium size Businesses (SMBs) experience challenges in maintaining adequate security measures and Information Technology policies as a fundamental element governing technology that moves your business forward.
Security threats continue to increase exponentially and must be primary concern of business owners. The technology being used to design today’s security threats has far surpassed the protection provided by the standard antivirus programs most commonly used by SMBs. Just look at the evolution of Ransomware and the impact of Heartbleed. When there is a huge data breach like Yahoo’s email hack or Targets’ thousands of records releases, it makes the news. When SMBs get hit (and they account for 60% off all attacks) it can lead to severe financial impact, regulatory fines, reputation impact and quite often business closure. Compromised or lost data disrupts operations and until the situation is contained and data restored, businesses cannot perform their basic operations.
The additional threats and increases in Cybersecurity threats can also create additional regulatory pressures for increased and documented Information Technology polices, controls, and best practices. SMBs, despite having fewer resources, may be held to the same standards as larger organizations. Savvy business owners are starting to realize that establishing polices and managing risk are “table stakes” to operate in today’s cyber oriented market. When you started your business, did you think you would have to combine processes, security awareness, people and technology into a documented and tested function of your business? How about plan for a disaster – natural, human or technological? Probably not!
