IT Security Services for Business

IT Security: The Invisible Problem
At many organizations, IT security is sometimes the invisible and forgotten problem.

  • “Is our IT security running? Is it working? Is our data safe? Have we been breached?”

It’s hard to have confidence in your IT security if you’re a non-IT business executive. You have a “day job”—you have a business to run. IT security is another drain on your time and resources, especially when there’s a problem brewing. 

Even if you’re an IT professional, it’s hard to know if your data and systems are secure. IT security is a highly specialized skill set, requiring an equally specialized set of tools. Plus, you have way too many issues and big projects to deal with—you don’t have time to be checking in minute-by-minute to see if the security lights are on.  

IT security is not a static challenge; you can’t just “set it and forget it.” IT security requires constant monitoring of your systems and it must change and evolve with emerging threats as hackers create new ways to breach your systems. 

Even at small or medium sized businesses (SMBs), you’re not immune from security problems or attacks. In fact, you’re at high risk. That’s why mindSHIFT offers a suite of IT security solutions for small, medium and enterprise-sized businesses. IT Security, Risk and Compliance Services - Data Sheet

Why Worry About IT Security?
Whether you know it or not, your IT systems, servers, computers, smartphones and data are under attack whenever your systems are connected to the Internet. 

Let’s take one simple scenario that’s playing out every day in business somewhere. 

Ransomware attack

It would be bad enough if one of your desktops got hit by a ransomware attack and you had to pay $500 to a cybercriminal to unlock the data. But what if that computer contained customer information? 

Now the cybercriminal has all of your customers’ data (financial and credit info, account history, contacts, etc.). A minor issue? Not in today’s world. Now you need to report that breach. And depending on your industry and government regulation, you may be required to report that to authorities as well. Now it’s in the media, and your company’s reputation is in question. Then things really begin to unravel and spiral downward from there. 

Still wondering why you should worry about IT security for your company or organization?

Today’s Data Security Risks
There are few businesses or organizations today that are hermetically sealed from the risks and dangers of the digital world. Connect a laptop to your network, and boom!, your network is digitally engaged with every other network that computer has ever connected with in the past. But how can you do business today without technology and computing? You can’t. You have to protect yourself. 

It’s a mission critical function to protect your computers, mobile devices, networks and all of the data they carry. And because everything is connected, both wirelessly and wired, the risk is high. 

How they get you
Cybercriminals travel numerous avenues to get to you and your data. 

    • Email
      • Email is an efficient way for cyber-criminals to transmit and install malware and viruses on your computers
      • Phishing is a fast growing tactic used by cyber-criminals that involves email
      • Email attachments with malware can put your computers and networks at risk
    • Virus 
      • Computer viruses move from one system to another in many ways
        • Can be received via emails that link to infected web pages, USB drives with malware or infected files, and more
    • Websites
      • Legitimate websites are sometimes compromised by cybercriminals 
      • Malicious websites are purposely designed to get users to visit and download viruses (“drive-by-downloads”)
    • Social Engineering
      • Employees are duped into giving their sign-on credentials and other info to cybercriminals
    • Network
      • Firewall vulnerability opens your network to hackers
      • Password hacking enables cybercriminals to access your systems with ease
    • Physical access to computer hardware
Once a cybercriminal has access to your computers, they install “payloads”—software designed to give them further access to perform malicious acts on your data, computer or networks. These payloads are in various formats of malware such as virus software, ransomware (e.g., Crypto-locker), key loggers and spyware. 

The end result is that the criminals have access and potentially control over your data and systems. 

You need to stop them before they get that far.
