Think of cybersecurity like an insurance policy—whether it’s a tree falling on your house or a simple fender bender in your car, it’s absolutely crucial if you want to avoid long-term complications, hefty financial fees, or even legal consequences.
In this blog, we’ll talk about how cybersecurity solutions can function as your business’s own personal insurance policy for your technology, and keep you out of harm’s way as external threats become more sophisticated and harder to identify.
You may have relied on your current software up to this point with no issues to speak of, but that doesn’t mean it’ll be smooth sailing as the years go by. Modern computing technology has only become more sophisticated—and, so too, have modern hacking methods. Cyberattacks can come in all shapes and sizes, the only commonalities among them being that they pose a serious threat to your network and are harder to detect than ever before. That’s why frequent updates are such a crucial part of maintaining optimal uptime, airtight data security, and keeping hackers and other cybercriminals at bay.
There are two key areas that cybersecurity with 42 Inc. covers: compliance and data management.
The industry you work in might have specific standards for compliance; one slight misstep in the handling of you or your client’s data can have a catastrophic impact on your future. 42 Inc. specializes in keeping our clients current with all of the industry-specific compliance standards.
How closely are you keeping track of your data? Whether you’re accessing sensitive information from your desktop or a mobile device, you can never be too careful about restricting unauthorized access. Security solutions from 42 Inc. include high-quality data management for onsite and offsite data centers.
You want to be able to gain access to your relevant data and other company information when it’s convenient for you—but what happens if that information is accessible enough that the wrong people can find a way to get their hands on it? Think of all the information you have on hand; now consider that that information is being used against you in a phishing scam. Don’t fall victim to avoidable crimes. Cybersecurity is more than just a run-of-the-mill service included in a standard MSP offering. It can make or break the success of your company; it can be the difference between avoiding hefty legal fees and keeping that money to further invest in your own business.
What You Can Do to Protect Your Company
A lot of organizations get bogged down by day-to-day tasks that they neglect to pay attention to the minor details. Unfortunately, hackers are the ones looking to exploit those seemingly unidentifiable loopholes in your system, whether it’s a chink in your network’s armor or an employee who doesn’t carefully read before clicking on a link. At 42 Inc., we might be responsible for the overall safety of your infrastructure, but there are still things you can do to protect your network, including:
- Training your staff
- Running network assessments with an IT provider
- Hiring a provider to run vulnerability and penetration tests
- Electing to move to a secure data storage solution, whether it’s a cloud offering or offsite data center
How much of a handle do you have on your data? What about your customer’s? If you don’t immediately know that you’re 100% covered, it’s time to find a solution that delivers.
