As stories of large scale cyberattacks like the recent T-Mobile data breach become more frequent, cybersecurity and security infrastructure is more important than ever. While it may seem like a “big business” problem, according to the Verizon 2019 Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR), 43% of cyber-attacks target small businesses. Most ransomware doesn’t know who it’s attacking or have specific targets. Attempts are mostly automated and sent out in large numbers aiming to hit the most people possible looking for an easy target. Michael Kaiser, executive director of the nonprofit National Cyber Security Alliance said “Businesses and organizations that don’t take cybersecurity seriously are leaving themselves vulnerable to attack and risk significant impact to their operations,”.
In the modern world, network security isn’t an option, it’s a necessity.
Many small businesses don’t have the resources to manage their network themselves. The solution to this is partnering with a managed technical service provider. While the managed IT market has become saturated, those providers are often mediocre at best. Most providers fix something once it is broken. The correct company’s approach will aim to fix the issue proactively, and focus on the cause of issue to help your system run smoothly and reliably. This limits recurring issues saving your organization headaches, inefficiency and frustration.
