Ransomware, Phishing And Vishing: How To Protect Your SMB


HackerI know. I know. You’re an extremely busy business owner with an enormous temptation to discard this, shrug it off, worry about it “later” or just dismiss it altogether because you’re under the notion that “I’m too small of a business” or “I don’t have information the hackers want”. Let me make you a guarantee …

At Some Point, You WILL Have To Deal With A Cybersecurity Event

Over the last two years, Ransomware attacks have increased over 97% and there is no sign they’ll be slowing down anytime soon. This means that your business is just as vulnerable as the next and it’s simply a matter of “when” will you have to deal with the cybersecurity event – not “if” you’re going to have one.

You won’t get much sympathy when your business is the victim of a cyber crime attack where client or confidential data is compromised. You will be instantly labeled as stupid or irresponsible. You will be investigated and questioned about what you did to prevent this from happening – and if the answer is not adequate, you can be found liable, facing serious fines and lawsuits. Claiming ignorance is not an acceptable defense, and this giant, expensive and reputation-destroying nightmare will land squarely on YOU.

Hopefully you’ll be brilliantly prepared for it and experience only a minor inconvenience at most. But if you wait and do NOTHING, I can practically guarantee this will be a far more costly, disruptive and devastating attack that will happen to your business.

Preparing Your Business With A “Security First” Mindset

As a business owner, you’re passionate about your industry and how your business helps its customers. You know how to do that well. But do you know how to protect the complex technology setups your company relys on? Do you know how to educate your staff on increasing their security awareness? Are you continually testing and evaluating your risk exposure? In order to prepare your business from going out of business due to a ransomware attack, phishing campaign or data breach, you need to realize that security is no longer just a firewall on your network and antivirus on your computer.

Where To Start And What To Do Next To Protect Your Business

Protecting your business information starts with how your employees conduct themselves on the company’s network and assets. Defining acceptable internet usage and advanced security policies help limit what employees have access to. Additionally, developing a breach response and disaster recovery plan will ensure your response to an attack is swift – minimizing the impact to your business. However, knowing where to start and keeping everything in compliance is what Managed Service Providers (like GeeksHD) specialize in. We start with a thorough cybersecurity audit of your infrastructure and provide recommendations on the best ways to protect your business from becoming another headline on the evening news.

Here’s how we work … At no cost or obligation, we’ll come to your office and conduct a non-invasive, CONFIDENTIAL investigation of your computer network, backups and security protocols. Our assessment will show you if your employee login credentials are being sold on the Dark Web, if your IT systems and data are truly secured from hackers, cyber criminals, viruses, worms and even sabotage by rogue employees, and if your current backup would allow you to be back up and running again fast if ransomware locked all your files.

If we DO find problems… overlooked security loopholes, inadequate backups, credentials that have been compromised, out-of-date firewall and antivirus software and (often) active malware…on one or more of the PCs in your office, we will propose an Action Plan to remediate the situation that you can have us implement for you if you choose. That’s why this assessment is completely and entirely FREE. Let us earn your trust by demonstrating our expertise. While we would love the opportunity to be your IT company, we will come in with no expectations and only look to provide you with fact-based information so you can make a quality, informed decision – and we’ll ONLY discuss the option of becoming your IT company if the information we share makes sense and you want to move forward. No hard sell. No gimmicks and no tricks.

There is no charge for this and it'll take only 30-60 minutes. We’ll then deliver a customized IT Optimization plan that will show you how to eliminate every single nagging problem, enable you to work faster and easier and lower IT costs wherever possible!
