You may not know your business is at risk until it's too late
The landscape of Information Technology (I.T.) has changed greatly in the past few years. One area that most organizations continue to be concerned with is security. Specifically, they are concerned with the seemingly never-ending ransomware attacks that receive constant news coverage.
Not too long ago, I.T. security was looked at by many as not only a very costly place to spend money, but also an annoyance that got in the way of people doing their jobs. The good news is that technology has come a long way in a few short years. Gone are the days of costly multifactor authentication (MFA) key fobs. Now, using mobile devices it takes the simple tap of a finger to approve or deny authentication. However, as businesses have continued to level up their security practices, attackers too have levelled up by finding new ways to infiltrate.
Phishing, password attacks, malware, and insider threats are just a handful of ways that attackers can encrypt or export sensitive information for ransom. In many cases, MFA is not enough to stop threat actors, and insurance companies have long footed the bill for substandard security practices. Along with MFA, insurance companies are requiring more substantial security requirements before an organization can receive or renew cyber insurance. SWICKtech saw this coming.
Using the experiences of our clients, SWICKtech created a packaged management solution that combines cybersecurity, I.T. managed services, and compliance. The Cybersecurity Agreement (CSA) provides levels of risk management to cybersecurity threats, while also providing a thorough and secure detection and incident response. Whether your business needs a solution for obtaining ongoing/appropriate cybersecurity insurance, contracts for government compliance, and/or protecting against bad actors the CSA ensures all your bases are covered day or night, plus optional 24/7 critical support.
When a malicious actor gains access to a network, they own and control everything. Well, with SWICKtech’s SafetyNET Cloud Backup infrastructure, all of your data is backed up to SWICKtech’s server, from which malicious actors cannot delete data. What if law enforcement needs to confiscate your hardware as evidence for an ongoing investigation? Azure Site Recovery allows SWICKtech to restore systems in the cloud directly to get you back online quickly. With SWICKtech’s Cybersecurity Agreement your business can have these protections and more by combining your choice of level of protection for cybersecurity, I.T. managed services, and compliance.
Planning for disasters used to mean planning for building damage from fires and tornadoes. Today, the most common disaster is a malicious actor carrying out ransom attacks on businesses large and small. Cyber insurance providers are looking for complete and mature I.T. practices to better protect against threat actors. SWICKtech’s Cybersecurity Agreement makes it easy to implement and maintain new requirements in order to achieve reliable, system-wide I.T. security and stability.
