Cyber Security—What’s the Risk?
Across the small- to medium-size business landscape, security breaches are taking their toll. There has been a 41% increase in business disruption, which has reduced employee productivity by 33%. This, of course, causes massive spikes in your operational costs—not to mention an overall decrease in revenue by at least 9%.
Coupled with the theft or destruction of your data (or your customers’ data), can your business afford to shoulder those setbacks? Cyber security is no longer just for the Fortune 500 companies to worry about—many SMB businesses are closing their doors this year because they fell prey to a cyber attack.
Cyber Security has Evolved.
Cyber threats have evolved. In just a few short years, businesses large and small have been faced with advanced exploits, new phishing and social engineering techniques and dreaded ransomware that holds proprietary data hostage. These new attacks are more sophisticated and more dangerous than ever before, which means that the security solutions of the past aren’t enough anymore.
Luckily, cyber security has evolved, too. Modern cyber security has moved beyond off-the-shelf antivirus software to advanced software suites, featuring an array of capabilities, that are monitored and managed by technicians in a security operations center (SOC).
More importantly, cyber security no longer starts at the last moment—when issues arise. Today’s cyber security strategies include real-time threat monitoring, profiling for external and internal threats, risk assessment and more. And instead of a scramble if an incident should occur, immediate and effective remediation processes are already defined and ready to be executed.
Are you Following Cyber Security Best Practices?
Because phishing techniques and social engineering exploits are responsible for a large amount of security incidents, the next data breach can only be a click or phone call away.
To combat that risk, it’s important to have a culture of security instilled in your workplace, which is why we offer security awareness training as part of your complete cyber security plan. Your staff will have the training they need to keep your systems safe in the digital realm as well as the physical world, which can lead to the reduction of a risk of a cyber attack of 45 to 70 percent.

Unified Threat Management
Take control of your network security with a UTM
Your business’ online environment is a prime target for countless threats that want to steal the data of businesses just like yours. Problems such as viruses, malware, and spyware consistently pose massive threats to not just your own network infrastructure, but to your budget as well. Sensitive information that’s stolen can crush your business under the weight of steep compliance fines, while also ruining your reputation as a trustworthy organization.
Increase Productivity by Cutting Out Spam
Apply filters to user groups to only allow work related content to be accessed
In order to grow as a company in today’s digital world, you have to provide your employees with resources that make them more efficient. The Internet is one of most important resources your employees will require. Unfortunately, if not controlled properly, granting access to the internet can create its own inefficiencies.
How much does spam cost your company?
As a business owner, you probably spend a solid amount of time every day checking your email and responding to leads, customers, and employees. Unfortunately, one of the primary faults in email communication is the prevalence of spam. If your organization only works with the bare essentials of spam protection, you’re likely wasting both time and money that could be better spent elsewhere.
