Cyber Security Reno

Cyber security is quickly becoming a necessity for everyone.  Whether you are in business or simply want your home security tightened, we can help. We work with cyber security to ensure that your wireless connection is protected from outside invasions.  Many times people will drive around and attack open networks.  These attacks can affect your smart home, computers, and other devices.  You want to ensure that your data is protected from such attacks at all times, thus looking into cyber security. There are many categories of cyber security such as:
  • End-user education
  • Disaster recovery and business continuity
  • Operational security
  • Information security
  • Application security
  • Network security

The different categories:

End-user education is helping the people that have access to your data to understand the importance of keeping that access safely guarded.  We will teach you how to check emails and show you what you should never open and always delete.  Unsuspecting users are the reason that most systems end up with malware and viruses.

Disaster recovery and business continuity are important for those that have large databases that you need to frequent.  In an event that would cause the systems to completely shut down, do you have a backup?  Having a plan in case there is a disaster is important.  Many businesses use an outside framework that is stored in a cloud or other parties server.  For this reason, they don’t have their data physically in the possession.  Because of this, it is important that you ask that company their backup plans and how they would operate in an emergency.

Operational security and Information security are the handlings of your data in a manner that is secure.  This can be with the use of passwords and certain people having access. It can even go as far as to tell you who was last on that file or into that data for tracking purposes.

Application security works with your systems to keep out intruders.  While network security protects your internal network from attacks that can spread.  All this is included with a cyber security package.

Protect your information

If you store people’s information it is up to you to ensure that it is indeed safe.  This can be things as simple as a name, address, and phone number.  But, if you go even further and gather medical information or other details, you certainly need to ensure that your cyber security is up to speed.  

Cyber security is not an easy challenge.  Malicious attacks are all around us and happening every day. People’s data is worth big money but these security breaches can cost you big money as well as a bad reputation.  We have all heard of larger companies that have had attacks and data has gotten out.  That is not the type of publicity that you want.  This is why you should be proactive and get cyber security in place before something happens.  Sure, we all think that it won’t happen to us, but it can really happen to anyone.  Even if you don’t gather others’ information, they could attack your system and gather all your personal data.  Call today to set  up an appointment for your cyber security checkup.
