The New Way to Fight Off Cyber Threats

 
Cybercrime has quickly become a trillion-dollar industry, and it’s projected to keep growing. Even more alarming is the fact that 60% of small businesses fail within 6 months after being hacked. These two stats led us to ask one question:

"If we know that a data breach has the potential to cripple our business, why are we not doing a better job of protecting ourselves?"

But when we started looking at how businesses traditionally approached cybersecurity, we found that every business, regardless of their size or the industry they were in, struggled to address 4 key areas. We call these 4 areas the SATS.
  • Speed to detect: The average data breach goes undetected for 206 days
  • Adapting to change: A new virus is created every 4.2 seconds
  • Total protection: Hackers aren’t just targeting computer systems, they're using social engineering attacks
  • Skills and Time: There's a global shortage of security professionals
Unable to find a solution that adequately addressed these areas, we decided to create one. So, we brought in two Certified Information System Security Professionals (CISSP), one Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) and 18-months later — Cyber Secure was born.

 

Speed to Respond

To increase our ability to detect security incidents faster, our team built a US-based Security Operations Center (SOC) to operate our fully-managed SIEM. When properly configured, a fully-managed SIEM allows you to see everything that is going on within your network in real-time. So if a hacker from Russia is trying to access your systems, our team is able to see it in real-time which allows them to respond to the security incident almost immediately. Thus reducing those 206 days of undetected vulnerability down to hours or minutes.

 

Adapting to Change

To adapt to the rapid changes in cyber threats, our team of security experts are constantly learning and watching industry trends. Unfortunately, the attack methods that criminals use to get new viruses into your business are targeted at you and your staff.

To arm your workforce, we designed an ongoing training program that educates end users on how to avoid the latest threats. Each month, you and your staff will receive short educational videos, games, and quizzes that will train you on how to identify threats.

By increasing the cyber threat awareness of your staff and keeping cybersecurity top of mind, you will create a security over convenience culture that improves the protection of your business and prevents your staff from becoming a victim — even at home.
 

Total Protection

The weakest link in any cybersecurity strategy is, and always will be, your people. Out of all the successful cyberattacks, 95 percent of them were attributed to human error. The security awareness training program will significantly reduce this rate; however, human error is impossible to eliminate completely. In lieu of this fact, we asked ourselves, how can we ensure that end users are protected - even from themselves? We came up with the following services:
App Lockdown: We develop custom, company-specific data policies to regulate what applications are approved to run in your environment. By changing the security approach from “prevention” to “Only Allow”, we can eliminate nearly every possible vector for malware, ransomware and unauthorized processes to run.
Dark Web Scans (Monthly): Forget about those $9.99 per month scanning services that you hear about on TV. Our service takes traditional dark web scanning to the next level. We don’t just look at the main databases; we monitor the private databases that require an active membership that's maintained with Bitcoin. Should your credentials find their way onto the dark web, we'll find them and change them in your system before they become a liability to your business. 
Quarterly Security Assessments: Once per quarter, we will do a complete audit of your systems and document any changes that have taken place. This is great for those of you that are in regulated industries as this will satisfy your documentation requirements.
Bi-Annual Vulnerability Testing: The best way to know if your security measures are working is to put them to the test. During our vulnerability testing, a Certified Ethical Hacker will attempt to penetrate your network using the same tactics that a vindictive hacker would use. Twice per year, you will receive a detailed report on how your organization did.  
 

Conclusion

Every business and employee deserves the freedom to use technology without the fear of causing catastophic harm to themselves. Collectively, these services not only provide complete protection for any business, but they will also keep you compliant with any security regulation you may be subject to. 
So if you have concerns about your current security strategy or you realize that you’re struggling with some of the areas outlined in the SATS or quite frankly, you’re just tired of trying to manage cybersecurity on your own, then you’re in luck, because we’ve made protecting your business really easy. Our simple 3-Step process will get your business on the path to security in just a matter of weeks.

Complete protection for your business doesn't have to be complicated. Let our security experts do what they love to do, so you can get back to doing what you love to do.
