let’s talk about cybersecurity.

Digital information has become the most important, but...

Unfortunately the most commonly reported fraud. We know all about cybersecurity, let us be your partner so that security will never be something that stops the growth of your business.

So, what is Cybersecurity?

Cybersecurity is the comprehensive effort to protect computers, programs, networks, and data from attack, damage, or unauthorized access through technologies, processes, and best practices. Large businesses have been working to secure their information and systems, so small businesses are becoming more common targets because they have fewer resources than large companies have.

It apply for small businesses?

Although the public typically only hears about cyberattacks against high-profile companies, banks and government websites, small businesses make prime targets for cybercriminals, competitors and disgruntled parties. Yet, due to their lack of resources, small businesses have the least-protected websites, accounts and network systems — making cyberattacks a relatively easy job.

Why is cybersecurity “so important”?

Let’s imagine this for a second. Do you have information that needs to be secure?

What are common cyber threats and crimes?

There are a broad range of information security threats. Some of the most common threats include :

  • Ramsomware
  • Malicious code and viruses
  • Website tampering
  • Theft of data
  • Denial-of-service attacks
  • Man in the middle

Ramsomware... Because extortion it’s real

When a ransomware attacks everything you know and love on your computer will be erased, and gone forever… unless your follow their game.

Ransomware is malware for data kidnapping, and exploit in which the attacker encrypts the victim’s data and demands payment for the description key.

Safe Computing

Keep clean machines: having the latest security software, web browser, and operating system are the best defenses against viruses, malware, and other online threats. Set antivirus software to run a scan after each update. Install other key software updates as soon as they are available.

Password Managers

They store all your passwords, generate strong ones for you, and in general, the only password you have to remember is the one to open your password manager. Password managers aren’t just for convenience’s sake; think of it as good online hygiene.

Operating system update

When cyber-criminals are constantly inventing new techniques and looking for new vulnerabilities, an optimized security network is only optimized for so long. To keep your network protected, we make sure your software and hardware security is up to date with any new anti-malware signatures or patches.

Antivirus/ Antispyware

Antivirus and antispyware programs work pretty much in the same way, the difference being the type of malicious file and pattern the program scans your hard drive for  and detects. Today some antivirus programs include antispyware protection, and vise versa.

Password Complexity

Complexity requirements are enforced when passwords are changed or created. If this policy is enabled, passwords must meet minimum requirements when they are changed or created.

Firewalls for business

A firewall is a set of related programs that prevent outsiders from accessing data on a private network. Make sure the operating system’s firewall is enabled or install free firewall software available online. If employees work from home, ensure that their home system(s) are protected by a firewall.
