Cyber Security 101
80% of small businesses that are breached fail within a year. That figure isn’t cherry-picked from the worst year on record either. It’s an average of the past several years. Cyber Security is a top of mind item inside the business community. Odds are that if you are simply hoping that the defenses you have in place will be sufficient, you are exposed. Cybersecurity is a practice unto itself and a constantly moving target. At Matrix, we spend the first 15 minutes of our weekly staff meeting on cyber security threats and trends.
The best approach for Cyber Seucrity is called defense in depth. At Matrix, we have developed a solid security solution that is tailored to the needs of small businesses. It’s robust and strong but will not break the bank.
What can you do to protect your data and your business security?
We strongly recommend that you take a layered security approach. Just having an anti-virus solution and hoping for the best is a thing of the past. You need multiple solutions that integrate with each other to provide a solid security “shell” around your data. This consists of the following:
- A strong managed firewall
- Managed Anti-virus software
- Managed Anti-malware software
- Managed Software Updates
- Strong Cyber policies for all staff
If you’re not already approaching your cyber security measures with these tactics, you need to be. We’re here to help. Book a time with us today. This is what we do, every day.
