Businesses utilizing technology are at risk for various cybersecurity issues. By proactively managing security, you can stay ahead of potential threats to your company. At MIT our trained tech support experts can assist in creating a personalized security strategy that addresses your specific needs and concerns. Cyber crime negatively impacts 1 in 5 Canadian businesses. Without proper computer protection, businesses are vulnerable to hackers stealing valuable data. Compromised data not only puts your clients’ personal information at risk, but it also undermines the trust your clients have placed in your business. Statistics show that about 53% of small businesses have an online presence and 27% of these businesses have no IT support. The average cost of a malware attack on a small company is a staggering $2.4 million. Cybercrime attacks are on the rise and becoming increasingly sophisticated.
What Are Cybersecurity Threats
These threats refer to the possibility of unauthorized access, damage, or theft of IT assets, computer networks, or sensitive data. These risks can originate from both internal and external sources. Cybercriminals may use sensitive information to gain access to a company’s financial accounts or steal data. This highlights the importance of cybersecurity experts, such as technical support, in safeguarding private data. IT security threats can take many forms, such as malware, viruses, spyware, and ransomware. Technical support can play a vital role in maintaining the security of a company’s IT system and protecting against harmful attacks and security breaches.
What Tech Support Does For Your Business Data Protection
Your technical support team can assist in backing up your business’s data and website, allowing for retrieval of any information lost due to a cyber attack or computer malfunction. Regular data backups are a crucial and cost-effective method of protecting essential information. Utilizing a cloud storage service with encryption and multi-factor authentication can also provide data protection. Technical support can assist in scheduling automatic updates for your operating system and security software, which may include vital security improvements against viruses and attacks.
It is also crucial to have an expert install antivirus software on your company’s PCs and devices, including protection against malware, spyware, and spam and can assist with patching, which is important for maintaining the proper function of firewalls and protecting your company’s internal networks. One important aspect of technical support is reducing the amount of spam and phishing emails received by your business. These malicious emails can infect computers or steal data. Technical support can delete these emails immediately and set up spam filters to reduce the risk of accidental opening of spam or fraudulent emails. Tech support teams can identify and address any potential vulnerabilities or worms that could exist, preventing them from becoming major issues.
