Is Your Business Secure From Cyber Attacks?
You can’t afford to assume your cybersecurity is strong enough to protect your business. You need to actively test your defensive measures and practices with a robust cybersecurity risk assessment — when was the last time you did so?
Truly effective cybersecurity is a matter of both preparation and knowledge.
Do you have the right defensive solutions in place? Do you (and your employees) know how to work securely online? Would you even know if you suffered a data breach?
Recent stats suggest the business world isn’t managing the threat of cybercrime:
- 60% of small businesses that are hit with a cyber attack will go out of business within six months.
- In 2020, it took 228 days on average for organizations to detect a breach
- The average cost of a data breach across all business sizes is $200,000.
This is why businesses need to make a greater effort to develop and test their cybersecurity. A direct way to do so is to engage in regular cybersecurity risk assessments.
The Necessity Of Cybersecurity Risk Assessments
Cybersecurity risk assessments are extremely important. By having an experienced IT security company examine your cybersecurity from top to bottom, you can verify the effectiveness of your cyber defenses.
Unfortunately, not all cybersecurity risk assessments are created equal. Some offer nothing more than a technician checking off items on a list:
- Do you have a firewall in place?
- Do you have an antivirus solution in place?
- Is there a data backup in place?
While these are certainly all important aspects of a viable cybersecurity posture, checking them off a list is not enough on its own — you need a comprehensive and robust analysis of your IT systems and the practices that govern their use.
The fact is that cybersecurity has become much more complex in the past few years, which is why a standard cybersecurity risk assessment won’t cut it anymore. You need a robust and detailed assessment of your cybersecurity — that’s precisely what Hammer IT Consulting offers.
Hammer IT Consulting Will Help Your Verify Your Cybersecurity Capabilities
As a part of our white glove cybersecurity assessment service, Hammer IT will examine your organization-wide cybersecurity to determine whether your company’s data is properly protected. This means both assessing your IT environment defenses, and whether or not your staff is supporting your cybersecurity or putting it at risk.
We have carefully developed an unbiased, quantifiable assessment process, built on the standards laid out in the NIST framework. We have designed the assessment so that it can be repeated year after year, and followed by a seamless remediation process to both identify and eliminate any emerging vulnerabilities.
Once the assessment is complete, we deliver the following key resources:
- Comprehensive Cyber Security Risk Assessment
- Cyber Risk Score
- Ransomware Susceptibility
- Financial Risk
- Compliance Risk
- Recommendations and Strategy Report
Hammer IT Consulting Will Manage Your Remediation Process Too
We offer more than the assessment — we can help with any remediation efforts including policy and procedure creation, employee training, and more. Once the assessment is complete and the strategy has been developed, our team gets to work implementing any necessary changes in order to bring you to a state of confident security.
No matter what aspect of your cybersecurity is lacking, we will match it with a tested and proven solution to make sure it doesn’t put you at risk any longer. The fact is that security is not a one-time effort; ongoing compliance requires ongoing management, monitoring of your systems for any potential cybersecurity instances, and reporting to the appropriate parties.
As your IT systems age, security requirements are updated. Our team can help you stay secure, assessing your systems on an annual basis and applying necessary changes as needed.
