The health care industry has emerged as a high-value target for cybercriminals, and more than 90 percent of organizations have experienced at least one attack. Because health care businesses store and transfer extremely personal data, it’s crucial to protect confidentiality. Our team of experienced professionals provides a wide range of services.
We are prepared to conduct a thorough cybersecurity risk assessment and determine potential vulnerabilities. After conducting a comprehensive review of a health care organization’s systems and defenses, we work closely with decision-makers to develop an actionable cybersecurity plan.
Research indicates that busy health care companies tend to fall behind in key areas such as cybersecurity awareness training. Hackers are keenly aware that targeting employees with malware-laced emails and other strategies has proven effective. Along with deploying the latest antivirus protection and patching outdated software, among other services, we provide concise cybersecurity awareness training. We help your essential personnel become a front-line defense instead of a vulnerability.
Federal, state, and local agencies continue to be a focus of online criminals. It’s no secret that government agencies with vast resources have been infiltrated by foreign entities and hackers. Many of these criminals are organized, well-funded, and possess the highest skills. Sometimes called “advanced persistent threats,” only the most robust cybersecurity defenses can prevent a breach.
The White House continues to issue executive orders requiring powerful cybersecurity measures. For example, those who work in the military-industrial supply chain must earn and maintain Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification year-over-year.
The digital assets stored on government hardware and the Cloud represent a treasure trove of information. Hackers who penetrate government systems often sell that data on the dark web. That’s why agencies must harden their defenses, maintain compliance, and create an incident response readiness plan in the event of a cyber attack.
Today’s educational institutions are increasingly reliant on digital platforms. Personnel files, student data, and strategic planning information are stored on networks. While in-house IT employees do everything possible to protect critical data, there are only so many hours in the day.
It’s not uncommon for hard-working IT teams to spend the vast majority of their time keeping a learning institution operational. Solving login problems and system crashes rarely leaves enough time for strategic cybersecurity planning. Bringing in a third-party firm with cybersecurity expertise gives IT people an added resource.
After conducting penetration testing and other cybersecurity risk assessments, we bring decision-makers together to develop strategic policies and procedures. Educational organizations have an opportunity to expand protection knowledge and employ determined defenses by outsourcing cybersecurity efforts to experts.
Modernization and the ability to make real-time responses to critical threats are vital to a sustainable financial services firm. The fact that financial services organizations house and transfer data detailing credit cards, Social Security numbers, and bank accounts, makes them the preferred target for hackers. And the average financial services firm possesses approximately 350,000 sensitive files that can be sold on the dark web.
The increased mobility of employees and network users has resulted in increased cybersecurity vulnerabilities. Using email and electronic message phishing schemes, cyber criminals have been extremely successful in stealing data. Their messaging has caused workers to click on malicious links or accidentally download malware. That’s why we help workers identify the telltale signs of phishing schemes and keep the entire staff appraised of emerging threats.
We also advise financial services companies to employ strategies such as zero-trust users profiles and multi-factor authentication as bare minimum defenses. But until your network and remote devices have been vetted, even seemingly minor weaknesses can be exploited.
The popularity of e-commerce adds another layer of complexity to retail companies. This lucrative facet opens the door to an increased number of cyber attack attempts. Even relatively unsophisticated hackers can infiltrate a retail network unless prudent policies and procedures are in place.
It’s no secret that major corporations with seemingly endless resources have been breached because a new hire used an inadequate username or password. Business leaders simply cannot check each worker’s login credentials and ensure strong passwords are changed on a regular basis. For retailers to possess industry-leading cybersecurity, human error must be removed from the equation.
Solutions such as AI and multi-factor authentication are foundational strategies for complex retail networks. Other methods that can help prevent a devastating breach include automatic data encryption from platforms and devices and secure backup files. Retail leaders may want to consider whether they can prevent hackers from using a ransomware attack to gain control of digital assets.
It may seem counterintuitive, but small businesses and non-profits are among the most targeted by cyber criminals. Data breach reporting uncovers the fact that more than 40 percent of all online attacks were focused on small and mid-sized outfits annually. Email phishing schemes continue to represent the preferred method to breach systems. Online thieves far away from arrest or prosecution use a wide range of duplicitous messages to trick unsuspecting non-profit employees and volunteers.
Cyber criminals understand that small businesses and non-profits have limited budgets. In their eyes, that makes these valuable organizations nothing more than low-hanging fruit ready to be harvested. This scenario can be cured by working with a third-party cybersecurity firm that understands financial limitations. We offer budget-friendly opportunities that help non-profits harden their cybersecurity defenses and continue doing good work.
The Internet of Things (IoT) provided manufacturers with an unprecedented ability to track goods and materials across the digital landscape. Manufacturing decision-makers can plan production based on raw materials moving through the supply chain in real-time. After calculating production times and delivery transportation, they can determine almost precisely when a shipment will arrive at customer loading docks. With that highly-profitable digital knowledge comes increased vulnerabilities.
The information security policies and procedures used in manufacturing must involve a wide range of moving parts. Sensitive customer financial data housed in hardware or the Cloud must be virtually impenetrable. Should cyber thieves pilfer this information off, clients will likely lose confidence in an organization’s ability to work as a reliable partner. When investing in diligent cybersecurity, industry leaders need to consider their reputations. A single incident by a bad actor can be perceived as a breach of trust by others in your orbit.
