When it comes to Security Management, don’t make the costly mistake of assuming your current IT provider or internal IT team is doing all that is necessary to keep your business secure. Business Security Management is simply not in their wheelhouse regardless of what they lead you to believe, or allow you to assume, unless they’ve been formally educated and industry certified specifically in business information security. Business level security goes far beyond just having a network firewall and anti-virus on the computers and keeping them updated. Even businesses that go as far as to incorporate Email and Web filtering along with basic security training for their users are just barely scratching the surface of what it takes to keep their businesses truly secure. Yet, it seems to be the norm with far too many businesses we talk with… unfortunately for them, it’s simply not enough.
Some business owners realize they need to do more to protect their business, but they don’t know exactly what needs to be done, or where to begin. For others, it may be the assumption that it will be far too costly or time consuming to implement the necessary security measures to protect their business investment and their Client’s privacy. Far too many business owners believe they’re too small or insignificant to be targeted because they think they don’t have as much to protect. The truth is, small businesses have plenty of valuable information that’s very attractive to hackers:
- Proprietary Company Information
- Customer Data
- Vendor Materials
- Billing / Payment Information
- And much more...
What every business owner needs to understand is that security is not only directly related to your business’s ability to function… but its ability to survive. Security is a key ingredient to Business Continuity.
There are many other reasons to consider Managed Security such as PCI-DSS Compliance for businesses that accept credit cards and HIPAA Compliance for businesses that deal with Private Health Information (PHI). There are even some insurance plans that require Risk Assessments, Breach Notification Plans, and formal Security Policies and Threat Management Procedures in order to qualify. Whatever your reasoning for Security Management, our experienced and certified staff at ITNS Consulting is here to assist you.
Here’s how our Security Management Services can help resolve your issues…
As you’ve probably learned by now, the cyber threat conversation is no longer a matter of “If I get attacked…” but “When I get attacked…” The clock is ticking against you as cyber criminals actively work to steal your data and cause disruptions in your business. It’s really only a matter of time before you’re confronted with a serious security related issue.
The first step in resolving your security issues is to perform a full assessment of the environment to determine which vulnerabilities exist. After all, without independent auditing and testing, it’s impossible to know where your company’s vulnerabilities are. Once we’ve performed an assessment, we can take proactive measures which will help strengthen your security posture, and give your business its best chance for survival in the event of an attack.
