Is Your Firm Prepared to Handle a CyberSecurity Attack?
The Hiscox Cyber Readiness Report 2017, surveyed 3,000 companies across the US, UK, and Germany. The report found that 53% of the companies assessed were ill-prepared to deal with an attack, and just 30% were rated “expert in their overall cyber readiness.
Unsecured Equipment: An Overlooked Risk
Recently, a cyber attack impacted Ring internet doorbells. The device, intended to protect homeowners with a camera connected to a doorbell, included an easily hackable wireless chip that broadcast the homeowner’s wi-fi password. While the company behind the Ring fixed the issue within days of it becoming public, the need is clear: any device connected to the internet, presents a risk to your company. The ubiquity of internet connected devices mean there are likely unmitigated risks throughout your workplace and its networks.
When Was Your Last Audit?
We have found that many of our smaller business clients have never undergone a “real” Technology Audit. Even if your data is in the cloud, examples like the Ring doorbell or an old copy machine that has an outdated firmware installed can become gateways into your employees, clients, and other sensitive data. Our expert Audit services need only a few days to examine your network and security practices to identify vulnerabilities and risk factors for your business and livelihood. Completing yearly IT Security Audits ensures employee education and adherence to accepted policies and procedures.
