Identify Your Organization’s Security Deficiencies and Areas of Strengths and Weaknesses
Most Small to Medium Size Businesses believe they are too small to be targeted by hackers. Those that are conscious about their security do not have the time, resources and technical-know-how that are needed to combat these attacks and this makes it impossible for them to detect security breaches on time thereby leading to devastating attacks.
If you’re like most business owners, then you’re probably unaware that hackers might be lurking in your system. Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report also stated that a hacker is detected, not by a company’s security technology, but by a third-party security breach detecting system.
You need a third-party security breach detecting system to know how your business and technology interact to detect possible threats.
Here’s where Cyology Labs’ report card audit comes in.
Is this Cyber Report Card Right for You?
Most Small or Medium Size Businesses believe they are too small to be targeted by hackers. Those that are conscious about their security do not have the time, resources and technical-know-how that are needed to combat these attacks and this makes it impossible for them to detect security breaches on time thereby leading to devastating attacks.
Here are a list of questions we often get asked about before performing an audit.
You review and sign a document permitting Cyology Labs to audit your network. Then we'll setup a remote session into your computer and run our collection software. Once we receive the collected data, we can then produce a report for you. NO CORPORATE DATA WILL BE SENT TO CYOLOGY LABS
The audit can run between 30 minutes and 5 hours depending on how many devices are in your network. The average is about 30-45 minutes. The best part about this audit is that there’s No software to install, and No endpoint agents to deploy. It’s painless. It just talks to your network devices via WMI to pull critical information from them so that we can run the report.
No audit will ever ensure that you won't be breached. As a business owner or IT administrator, it's your job to make sure all the "Door and windows" are secure on your network, but unfortunately there's no silver bullet to stop a hacker, the hackers just need 1 way in. This audit how ever will show you where to start to ensure the network is difficult enough so that the hackers move on.
While most businesses protect their systems and data against external threats like malware, many overlook the biggest cause of data breaches: internal risks. Internal vulnerabilities are responsible for 70% of all data breaches in small and medium sized businesses (SMBs). These audits will help you pinpoint these weaknesses and help you correct them before a Cyberattack causes an outage.
If you think most data breaches are due to malicious insiders, you’d be wrong. Forrester found that only 12% of security incidents are caused by disgruntled employees with mal intent. Whereas, a whopping 27% of security breaches were caused by employees’ inadvertent misuse of data.
This means that if your company does experience a security breach, it’s 2x as likely to be perpetrated by a reliable employee rather than disgruntled worker.
In short, your best employees could also be your greatest risk.
The only way to know if you are protecting your business is to know what is happening inside your network. If you or your IT department aren’t currently running regular reports, or your current service provider isn’t running a regular assessment, briefing you on that assessment, and updating your management plan, then something crucial might be getting missed.
A comprehensive Cybersecurity solution should include ongoing internal vulnerability detection, alerts, and remediation options.
Even if your company is able to effectively detect internal vulnerabilities, experts recommend hiring a third party to evaluate risks at least once per year. Not all security service providers are the same. We can provide and perform this important task for your company.
