Without a well thought out and comprehensive security program, your organization cannot defend itself against data breach campaigns, making it an irresistible and eventual target for cybercriminals. Seven out of ten small businesses have no idea if their IT systems are secure. And the last words from the remaining three were, “It won’t happen to us.” A business can have all the risk assessment documents in the world, but they’re not worth much if the IT systems, processes and personnel have no protection against data theft, malware, ransomware, and other IT Threats.

Information theft is the most expensive and fastest-growing segment of cybercrime. It is primarily driven by the increasing exposure of identity information to the web via cloud services. But it’s not the only target. Industrial controls that manage power grids and other infrastructure can be disrupted or destroyed. And identity theft isn’t the only goal; cyber-attacks may aim to compromise data integrity (destroy or change data) to breed distrust in an organization or government.

Cybercriminals are becoming more sophisticated, changing what and who they target, how they affect organizations and their attack methods for different security systems. Social engineering remains the easiest form of cyber attack, with ransomware, phishing and spyware being the most effortless entry. Third-party and fourth-party vendors who process your data and have poor cybersecurity practices are another common attack vector, making vendor risk management and third-party risk management all the more critical.

The benefits of regular audits and remediation:

  • 24×7 operational visibility and support:
    With proactive monitoring and support, you can prevent threats from entering the organization—negating the potential for significant impacts like data loss or downtime.
  • Increased productivity:
    Minimize downtime from breaches and the fallout to our users and customers. Retain the focus on your core business.
  • Reduce compliance and governance burden:
    Even among organizations with some IT security expertise, outside help could be beneficial. Possessing certifications from ISO, SOC to PCI, our solutions and processes are highly secure, following NIST principles that enforce adoption and increase compliance and accountability. We help you address your governance, risk and compliance (GRC) goals with advanced technology and best practices.
  • Future proofed tools and processes:
    Stay ahead of the curve with relevant and contemporary solutions suited to the evolving threat landscape, including botnets, espionage, rogue employees, and state actors.
