With increasingly sophisticated attacks on networks and readily available malicious tools being used, staying up to date with current security concerns is a necessity today more than ever.
Today, the size of an organization is less of a criteria for vulnerability. Attacks are typically more automated than ever and any opening is an opportunity. Protecting your organization’s information and workflow is no longer optional.
It is essential.
Not only is it necessary to protect a network from outside threats but internal threats can also be a huge vulnerability. Part of a thorough network security plan is ensuring that employees are using best practices and are educated on their role in keeping the network safe. This includes security awareness training every quarter in order to prevent a user from sending a payment to a phishing email posing as a vendor, and costing your company thousands of dollars.
Hacks & Attacks
These days, hackers, attackers, and even automated web bots are all trying to gain access to your network and ultimately access your private customer and business information. When successful, the attackers can lock down your data or worse they can release your customer information to the world.
With the sheer number of security threats faced by companies, it is important to evaluate the vulnerabilities that may affect your business. Lost revenues due to downtime or large fines due to data breaches may not be an option and could affect the overall health of the organization.
If you store customer data, private information, or take credit cards, network security is no longer an option, but instead is a necessity. Not to mention if you must adhere to HIPAA, NIST, CMMC or any other regulations, you need a team that understands these requirements and a team that can provide the pieces necessary to keep you compliant.
