The Importance of Cyber Security Services

When data breaches or cyber-attacks (virus, malware, ransomware) occur the impact has been documented as disproportionate compared to a company’s income. They can result in a business having to stop operations for days or weeks, pay ransoms, and engage IT security remediation companies at a premium price; and does not take into consideration the impact of lost productivity, revenue, or reputation.

Hiring professionals to execute a cyber security risk assessment is the first step toward strengthening your business’s defense and resilience to cyber security risks. Our knowledgeable staff will help you protect your business against malicious attacks.

Conducting a Cyber Security Risk Assessment

It's common for small to medium-sized businesses to not have an IT resident staff with the necessary level of qualification and experience to define and implement proper cyber security policies and procedures. They may rely on a Manager Service Provider for part of their IT needs but this will not cover their entire digital footprint. If you are a business that does not have your own technology department, you can benefit from Crowe MacKay's cyber security risk assessment services.
