43% of cyber attacks are against small businesses

The cyber threat to small and medium businesses (SMBs) is more financially damaging than the combined threat of fire, flood, and transport strikes.

While the vast majority of reported cybersecurity breaches over the past 18 months have concerned large and well-known companies across the globe, it is small and medium size businesses that are increasingly in the criminal’s cross-hairs.

According to a study by the Ponemon Institute, three in five SMBs have experienced a cyber attack in the last 12 months and one in three believe they are not capable of fending off an attack.

Security Awareness Training

Employees are a major part of an organization’s attack surface and remain the greatest vulnerability to cybersecurity, frequently targeted by attackers.  Ensuring that employees have the knowledge and skills to defend themselves and the organization against threats is an essential part of any security program and a requirement for those organizations that need to comply with government and industry regulations, such as FISMA, PCI, HIPAA or Sarbanes-Oxley. A good security awareness program will educate employees on corporate policies, procedures, standards,  guidelines and industry best practices for working with information technology. A critical (yet often overlooked) component of security awareness training is what to do in the event of a data breach. The minutes and hours following the discovery of a data breach are critical to not only preventing the attack from spreading but also to preserving the environment for forensic examination. Our consultants will develop a comprehensive security awareness training program and provide training that is designed specifically for your business.

Information Security Audit

An Information security audit is a structured, systematic and measurable technical assessment of how the organization’s security policy is employed. It is part of the on-going process of defining and maintaining effective security policies. Security audits provide a fair and measurable way to examine how secure an organization is, by performing a security audit your organization can identify and remediate risk before they are compromised. Let our consultants perform a full security audit to uncover weaknesses and security gaps that exist within your organization and and uncover the cause of noncompliance to establish an effective security program.
