When it comes to cyber security, it is easy for small to medium sized businesses to say “not me”, “they are only after the big guys.” The reality is that attacks on all networks have been increasing year after year as hackers have become more sophisticated, and small businesses are being affected every day by relaxed or non-existent security policies.

A 2013 study showed that 1 in every 5 small businesses networks would be compromised. With the ever-increasing technological advances, it is likely that since then, these numbers have climbed, posing a significant risk for a potential breach, lost or stolen data, or some type of malicious threat. Small businesses will continue to be a low hanging fruit with the ever growing threat of Ransomware. All this can be catastrophic if you fall under any compliance or regulatory body. In addition, as much as 60 percent of hacked small and medium-sized businesses go out of business after six months.

There are a number of ways Bayon Technologies Group in South Florida helps to ensure that you are at minimum risk:

  • Updates - Keeping computers and network equipment updated is one of the most effective steps to preventing a possible cyber security issue.
  • Firewall - A common mistake in small to medium business networks is the lack of a business grade firewall solution. Often business owners are unaware of the difference between having a network router and having a network firewall in place.
  • Passwords - Password and password protection are proving to be an area that needs attention when discussing cyber security. Using sophisticated software and tools, hackers are easily gaining access to small business networks through simple or default passwords
  • Antivirus/Antispam - Most people know that antivirus and antispam software are necessary components of cyber security, but many people don’t realize why its so important until their computer or network is infected with a virus, malware, spyware, or ransomware. Use of a multi-layered security suite and training helps protect against the evolving cyber threats.

No matter the size of your business, cyber security is a definite requirement for every business in the digital age. If you are worried or unsure of where to start with an internal security audit, our team can help get you on track.
