CAN YOU AFFORD A CYBER-ATTACK?
Implementing a comprehensive security program in your computing environment is not an option, it is a necessity! The definition of information is security is "measures adopted to prevent the unauthorized use, misuse, modification, or denial of use of knowledge, facts, data, or capabilities." The problem is most companies in today's environment never started a comprehensive security program at the start of the their business.
Our consultants and technicians are certified by various vendors, including the worlds leading tech association CompTIA. Technical Encounters defies logic and breaks barriers to find the weakest points in systems and people, then build them up to become the most secure systems and people in your company.
Here at Technical Encounters we aim to transform your organization with cyber security solutions that solve real business issues. We provide simple, affordable solutions that create a manageable IT infrastructure. As IT security consultants, we take the time to sit down with each client and address current issues, along with inventory assets such as hardware and software components. After the consultation, we take the time to address any vulnerabilities your business might have using risk assessment.
As always, our consultations are free and once a meeting is scheduled we sit down with the business owner and conduct an extensive interview that gives our consultants the “current state” of what is working and what is not. We also discuss which plan is right you, no matter the situation we offer flexible plans for any type of budget.
Out of 30 million small businesses in the United States, a recent survey showed that small business owners don’t consider themselves a target for cyber-attacks. The main reason is that due to their size, their perception is that they don’t have anything worth stealing. The reality is that small businesses are a target for cyber-criminals because of the wealth of customer information, employee data, bank account information and intellectual property they store in their databases and computers.
Small businesses present more vulnerabilities and should be noted that your company could house opportunities for attackers. Often, for smaller companies it’s being caught in the line of fire without adequate protection or mitigation. Many small firms lack sufficient resources or personnel to dedicate to cybersecurity. In 2017, cyber-attacks cost small and medium-sized businesses an average of $2,235,000.00, with malware costs alone causing $1,027,053.00 in damage and disruption to business operations.
