To defend against the devastation of cyberattacks, small- to medium-sized businesses must deploy a strategy that includes three critial components.
Threats to your data come from every direction, all the time. When companies devise brilliant new cyber-defenses, hackers come up with new cyber-weapons in about 3 minutes. They are endlessly innovative. Effective cyber-security must address every tool and technique in the hacker toolbox.
60% of SMBs fail within 6 months of a cyberattack.
Most businesses underestimate their risk, with 82% of owners claiming they are not a target for a4acks. If they could just talk to the owners who said the same thing before they were a4acked, that 82% number would drop.
Cybersecurity solutions for SMBs. (Short version.)
Broadly speaking, an effective plan includes these critical components:
Assess + Plan
Monitor + Respond
It’s about preparation, technology and vigilance.
Many companies fall short of a comprehensive plan, so if you’re one of them, you’re not alone. It’s difficult to look at vulnerabilities. But if you want the highest level of protection in today’s cybersecurity environment, read on.
ASSESS + PLAN
A thorough review of your en/re infrastructure is the first step to identifying weaknesses and planning an effective response.
What you can do to avoid trouble before it arrives.
MONITOR + RESPOND
Constant vigilance is necessary for reliable protection.
SIEM/SOC-as-a-Service: Active monitoring 24x7x365, including log events and endpoints; regular reporting tailored to your business.
Dark Web Monitoring: Continual searching, monitoring and reporting of domain and personal digital credentials on the dark web, to assess threats in advance of attack.
That’s not the whole story of IT security solutions for SMBs.
We could go on but hopefully, the outline above suggests just how much attention a reliable cybersecurity defense demands. It’s not fun to think about this, but thinking about this is more fun than enduring (or succumbing to) a cyberattack.
