Did you know that 1 in 5 small businesses will suffer a cyber breach this year? Or that 81% of ALL breaches happen to small and medium sized businesses? The most important information to take away from this would be that 97% of breaches could have been prevented with today’s technology.
At Adaptive Technology Group we take the time to understand your business needs and make sure you are protected. Here are the 15 ways we protect your business:
Security Assessment – Its important to establish a baseline and close existing vulnerabilities. When was your last assessment? Contact our team to schedule one.
Spam Email – Secure your email. Most attacks originate in your email. We’ll help you choose a service designated to reduce spam and your exposure to attacks on your staff via email.
Passwords – Apply security policies on your network. Examples: Deny or limit USB file storage access, enable enhanced password policies, set user screen timeouts, and limit user access. Read our blog “The Secret to a Great Password” for more information.
Security Awareness – Train your users- often! Teach them about data security, email attacks, and your policies and procedures. We offer a web-based training solution and “done for you” security policies.
Advanced Endpoint Security – Protect your computers and data from malware, viruses, and cyber attacks with advanced endpoint security. Today’s latest technology (which replaces your outdated anti-virus solution) protects against file-less and script based threats and can even rollback a ransomware attack.
Multi-Factor Authentication – Utilize multi-factor authentication whenever you can, including on your network, banking websites, and even social media. It adds an additional layer of protection to ensure that even if your password does get stolen, your data stays protected.
Computer Updates – Keep Microsoft, Adobe and Java products updated for better security. We provide a “critical update” service via automation to protect your computers from the latest known attacks.
Dark Web Research – Knowing in real-time what passwords and accounts have been posted on the Dark Web will allow you to be proactive in preventing a data breach. We scan the Dark Web and take action to protect your business from stolen credentials that have been posted for sale.
SIEM/Log Management – Utilize Multi-Factor Authentication whenever you can, including on your network, banking websites, and even social media. It adds an additional layer of protection to ensure that even if your password does get stolen, your data stays protected.
Web Gateway Security – Internet security is a race against time. Cloud based security detects web and email threats as they emerge on the internet, and blocks them on your network within seconds – before they reach the user.
Mobile Devise Security – Today’s cyber criminals attempt to steal data or access your network by way of your employees’ phones and tablets. They’re counting on you to neglect this piece of the puzzle. Mobile device security closes this gap.
Firewall – Turn on Intrusion Detection and Intrusion Prevention features. Send the log files to a managed SIEM. And if your IT team doesn’t know what these things are, call us today!
Encryption – Whenever possible, the goal is to encrypt files at rest, in motion (think email) and especially on mobile devices.
Backup – Backup local. Backup to the cloud. Have an offline backup for each month of the year. Test your backups often. And if you aren’t convinced your backups are working properly, call us ASAP.
Cyber Insurance – If all else fails, protect your income and business with cyber damage and recover insurance policies.
