Cybersecurity Vulnerability Audit
How close are you to the rocky shore?
A cybersecurity audit is a good place to start!
A vulnerability assessment is where it starts!
Every entrepreneur is fairly confident that their business will not be the victim of a cyberattack.
- “Why would anyone target me??”
- “We’ve got a good firewall.”
- “I explained to my employees not to click on attachments or links in emails.”
- “I’ve got good backups.”
Until they are, and they’re looking at 1 to 2 weeks of downtime to recover (average downtime is 16.2 days to get all systems back up and cleaned).
They may then be looking at large ransoms to pay to get their data back (backups won’t cover you – attackers now threaten to publish your data on the dark web if you don’t pay, exposing you to all sorts of privacy issues). The company’s reputation also takes a big hit: customers, employees, and vendors may lose confidence in your ability to protect their data.
It is estimated that 60% of small businesses end up closing their door after a cyberattack, unable to recover.
Why wait to be a victim??
A vulnerability assessment will shed light on the situation, letting you know where you’re exposed. I will assess the state of your computers, your network, your servers.
I will report – in plain English! – on what you need to correct. You can then give this report to your IT department, your IT service provider, or engage my services to help remediate things.
Let’s be clear: you can never be 100% safe! There will always be hackers trying to get to you; but if you make it difficult for them, then their attempts will most likely be unsuccessful.
