Cybersecurity is the practice of ensuring the integrity, confidentiality, and availability (ICA) of information. Here at ATEC Group, we focus on how data security, network security, physical security, and user security work together to ensure that your business is protected.
Ask yourself these questions:
- How many of your users have the word “Password” in their password?
- Do you scan new USB drives before using them on the network?
- Are you aware of how many of your users would fall for a phishing email and download a virus?
- How much time would your IT Department save if you didn’t have to rebuild computers after another virus infection?
- Do you know when your last good backup completed?
What if my company isn’t big enough to be a target?
This is a dangerous assumption. Cybersecurity affects all companies, from SMBs to Enterprise Corporations. In fact, small businesses are actually a BETTER target, as they have smaller security budgets, less security in place, and the same data that a hacker can profit from.
Cybersecurity is similar to the security in and around your home – just because the front door is locked does not mean you are safe!
National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Framework
ATEC Group uses the nationally recognized framework from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to guide our clients and ourselves towards a resilient IT environment. This framework helps all stakeholders, from the C-Suite to the IT team to the finance department, understand that cybersecurity is not just about baseline prevention methods anymore. Cybersecurity is also not just about the technology, but includes the operational aspects of a company as well.
Data Security | Protect & Recover
Data breaches have become far too commonplace in recent years. In fact, it's hard to listen to the news without hearing reports of financial information, healthcare records, and other confidential information being stolen by cyber criminals. To put it simply, if your company's data is stolen, locked-down, or corrupted, your business cannot run. We partner with the best in the industry to improve your data protection.
Network Security | Protect & Detect
Your network is what makes your data run; if you can’t access the internet, you’re just as affected as if you can’t reach your data. Your network also serves as a wall around your data to keep it safe. If the wall comes down, you’re open to more vulnerabilities.
User Security | Identify, Protect, & Respond
Your users are your first and last point of failure. It doesn’t matter how many protections you have in place, if a user clicks on a bad link it can bring your network down. We work to educate users so they can avoid these mistakes and be armed with the tools to know what to do if they unfortunately click on a bad link.
