Managed IT Services Guide
In order to thoroughly protect your business, you need to partner with a MSP that can provide you with proper cybersecurity services. Without this, you leave all aspects of your business vulnerable to cybersecurity threats. This is especially the case in this day and age, with the amount of devices out there vulnerable to threats. Not to mention the growing number of people capable of carrying out these digital attacks.
What is Cybersecurity?
Cybersecurity is the process of protecting all of your systems, networks, and general IT workloads from outside threats and digital attacks. The threats will typically target your digital vulnerabilities in order to access your sensitive information. After gaining entry into the digital world of your business, the threat will aim to change or destroy this information and can even be used as a way to extort money from your business.
COMMON CYBERSECURITY THREATS
There are numerous kinds of cybersecurity threats out there that you will need to be protected from. This is why it’s so important to have a team of experts working alongside your business. Because of the different types of threats, it’s hard for you to protect yourself on your own. The adaptations that occur with them, as well as the people behind them, are exponential. Having to keep up with all of this on your own while also having to run your business would be next to impossible.
Here are a few major examples of threats you can be protected from when working together with a MSP:
- Phishing: Cyber threats will send fraudulent forms of communication (e.g. email) that appear as reputable. The goal is to steal sensitive data and information (e.g. credit card, login info)
- Malware: Short for “malicious software”, malware is typically code developed by attackers designed to cause extensive damage to your systems or to gain access to the systems
- Ransomware: A form of malware used to encrypt files on your devices or servers. Done to extort money. In order to restore access to your files, the attackers require you to pay a “ransom”.
- Social Engineering: An attack aimed to manipulate people into giving up sensitive and confidential information. Typically attackers are trying to trick you into giving up passwords, login information, or bank information.
Why is Cybersecurity Important for your Business?
You keep your sensitive information and data protected for a reason. In order to fully ensure you keep it this way, you need to employ some sort of cybersecurity service. It’s the most effective way of keeping your business out of the cyber attackers’ crosshairs.
Too many businesses have the mindset of “these attacks won’t happen to us”. In reality, that can leave you the most vulnerable. Digital attackers have ways to search out the least protected entities and will target them over others. It’s the same idea as having a lock on your front door and an alarm inside your home. Can an intruder technically break into your locked house and disable the alarm? Yes, but the idea of having to go through that process is usually enough to deter would-be threats.
Cyber threats may be able to find ways around cybersecurity measures, but chances are they will move along to the less protected business instead. And if they are somehow able to break through the security measures, having cybersecurity services will lessen the blow and get you back up and running as quickly as possible.
