Our partners at TD Synnex know just how entrenched we are in the cybersecurity world. So they invited us to be guests on their premiere podcast, 30 Minutes with a Hacker, this past week. We covered topics like working with the FBI, best practices for enhancing security, and using simple tools to identify problems.
The War is in Your Backyard
The fight against cyber attacks takes place on several fronts at once, including your backyard. And you might be inclined to think cybercrime is an uncommon occurrence, but in reality, it’s a daily threat that can do some real damage to your business. Especially since there are nation-state actors that hack for the sole purpose of creating chaos.
Listen to this podcast and hear from Atec Group’s very own Lewis Needham (SVP) and Rick Conlee (Head Engineer) as they shed some light on how you can effectively fight back in this ongoing war.
Atec Takes Cybersecurity Seriously
We’ve been the frontline, backline, and lifeline for our clients regarding their cybersecurity needs. Being successful at managing cybersecurity doesn’t require a Ph.D., but it does require a serious attitude. Here are some things you must always keep in mind about cybersecurity to keep you vigilant.
- Cyber attacks don’t discriminate. Just because you or your business may not seem like “high-priority” targets, that doesn’t mean you aren’t. There are many ways a cybercriminal can reach their objective, and one of those ways may be using you as a way to get to their real target.
- Cybercrime can end your business. Getting hacked is not just a small inconvenience. It can literally end your business. A report from Cybercrime Magazine states that 60% of small businesses close within six months of being attacked.
- Cybersecurity is easy to get started. There are many free tools online that you can utilize to keep yourself protected. While they do not provide the highest level of security, they do help get you on the right track to keeping you safe.
