Cyber Security for the Inland Empire, Orange County, and Los Angeles.

Hackers are targeting and exploiting security flaws all across the world, keeping data hostage. A cyber-attack on the Colonial Pipeline delayed petroleum deliveries throughout the East Coast for several days in May. To reclaim control of the system, the corporation – and the FBI – paid hackers $4.4 million in Bitcoin.

Colonial Pipeline was not the only company that paid a large sum of money to hackers. Cyber-attacks have also targeted the NBA, Kia Motors, and JBS Foods, with hackers demanding millions of cash. CD Projekt RED, a Polish video game developer, was also a victim of a cyber-attack, although they never had to pay the required ransom since they had backups in place.

Even though they are all large corporations, small firms are not immune. Companies paid millions of dollars to reclaim control of their data, thus these tales made the headlines. When a small or medium-sized business (SMB) is targeted, it cannot afford to pay millions of dollars to retrieve stolen data. Instead, these hackers are more likely to target consumer and staff data, as well as financial records and statements. When a hacker targets a small business, it frequently results in the company’s permanent closure.

Cyber-attacks established a new high in 2021, and the year 2022 is shaping up to be no different. Before it’s too late, if you’re a business owner, you need to wake up to the realities of cyber dangers and cyber security.

Here are few of the top cyber security techniques that you should use right away.


For Your IT Needs, Hire Managed Services Provider

Although cyber security knowledge has increased in the last five years, many small business owners still believe that cyber security measures are unnecessary or too expensive. The plain reality is that cyber-attacks may affect any organization. If you believe having your own IT team to monitor your cyber demands is too expensive, think again. Hiring an MSP is one of the most efficient and cost-effective ways to safeguard the security of your network and data.

Any firm may benefit greatly from MSPs. They’re made to identify and correct flaws in your IT infrastructure. MSPs strive to guarantee that your company is properly secured in the digital realm. They provide 24-hour monitoring, data backup and recovery, firewall and network security, real-time attack prevention, and much more. MSPs give you a specialized team of IT specialists that can help you with any IT issues you may have. You should think about employing an MSP for your company if you haven’t already.

If you’re interested in hiring an MSP or would want more information about the benefits, please contact us, Biztek Solutions, and we’ll be happy to answer any questions or address any issues you may have.


Create A Cyber-Secure Culture

Employee mistake or misunderstanding is at the root of many cyber-attacks. You must make certain that all of your staff are aware of the dangers of cyber-attacks. When you initially recruit someone, make sure they’re well-versed in cyber security. In addition, at least once a year, your present staff should take a refresher course.

You’ll need to educate your staff on the risks of phishing emails and texts, malware downloads, social media scams, and password security. If you have staff who work remotely, be sure that their gadgets have security features built-in. If your staff are aware of the dangers, they will be more vigilant in spotting any possible problems. If you want your training to be effective, you’ll need your entire staff to buy into the cyber-secure culture.

You can never be too cautious when it comes to cyber security in today’s world. You must take proactive actions and implement all available security measures. Cyber-attacks reached new heights in 2021, and the numbers are projected to continue to increase even higher this year.
