What Is The Dark Web?Read more
There were over 500 million new pieces of malware created in 2018 alone.
So, what actually happens if one of these hundreds of millions of threats makes its way onto your network?
Well, the financial consequences of a malware infection can be devastating, especially if data loss is involved. It’ll cost you an average of $150 per compromised file to recover from an online security breach, and thousands of files are compromised in the average attack.
A malware infection could also lead to extended downtime, taking away the tools your employees need to get their jobs done, and a less productive workforce means you’ll have a more difficult time meeting your revenue goals.
Instead of waiting around to clean up the mess after the damage has already been done, Radius Executive IT Solutions will regularly assess your network to stop unauthorized access and other security issues from happening in the first place.
Why wait for a cybercriminal to take a shot at breaching your network to see if you’re vulnerable?
We’ll play that part ourselves to see just how easy it is to access your data unauthorized. The combined efforts of living, breathing IT security experts and high-powered vulnerability scanning programs allows us to find and fix any weaknesses before they’re exploited by cybercriminals.
Not every email scam is as easy to spot as the classic Nigerian prince promising you a share of his fortune if you’d just help him out with a little money now… many phishers have grown more sophisticated than that.
Some are even able to convincingly pose as authorities you trust such as the local police or the IRS, and they’ll put you on the defensive and have you think you owe some unpaid fines or back taxes, when really they’re leading you closer and closer to installing a virus on your computer.
Also, if you ever see a USB stick on the ground while walking into work, don’t let curiosity get the best of you. Often cybercriminals will load malware onto a thumb drive and strategically place it in the parking lot or near the entrance to a business they’re targeting. This technique is surprisingly effective, as more often than not someone will pick up that thumb drive and plug it in to their work computer, not knowing that doing so infects your network with whatever kind of malware was originally stored on the drive.
We’ll help you establish safe email attachment-opening and web browsing policies and train your employees to avoid these scams and others.
Radius Executive IT Solutions keeps the cybercriminals at bay, which will save you from incredible recovery costs and allow your workforce to be more productive.
