Looming Cyber Threats: Are You Prepared for Battle?

Sponsored Content provided by Madison Howard - Marketing Team Leader, Systel Business Equipment

As the Russian attacks on Ukraine continue to escalate, U.S. business owners are preparing for a battle of their own: the war on American infrastructure. There is no longer speculation of whether these attacks could happen, but rather when and how catastrophic. The time to take action is now. Is your organization equipped for combat?

Educating your staff through cybersecurity training and adopting network security protocols, including software, is integral to protecting your organization’s critical information; otherwise, your business network is a sitting duck in an invisible combat zone, just waiting for the enemy to strike. Did you know that 60 percent of small companies are unable to sustain their business for more than 6 months following a cyberattack? Most businesses do not have the tools and training in place to be able to survive these attacks, and by neglecting the urgency of network management, you are setting your business up for failure and putting everything at risk.

Just as the Military requires its soldiers to undergo basic training, it is equally as important for businesses to implement solutions for protecting against potential cyber threats. IT begins with knowing how to respond in the event of a data breach. You see, when it comes to combat, preparation is key. At the end of the day, it isn’t protective gear that is going to save a soldier’s life, but how well he or she prepared for all of the “what ifs” leading up to that moment. The same principles apply to your business network. How well have you prepared your network and your staff for a potential data breach? If you are not confident that your organization could withstand a cyberattack, it may be time to call for backup. 

Think of Managed IT Services as the Navy Seals of cybersecurity; they are well rounded and highly specialized to perform a series of operations designed to proactively mitigate threats, and ensure the safety and integrity of critical information. While Managed IT Services can easily take the place of an in-house IT department for businesses without the funds and resources, they are also capable of supplementing existing IT departments so all areas of your network are covered.

Systel’s Managed IT Services are working, even when your employees are not. Our services are on call 24/7, 365 days a year and we are always prepared for battle.
