Security ServicesCyber threats are already at your doorstep, but we can help you with that.
Defining Your Risk
Establishing the potential risk of your organization to attacks or data compromise will help you determine how much time and money to devote to improving your security.
Ransomware attacks have become common because they have become profitable for the perpetrators. What would your organization do if all of your data suddenly became unavailable? This may start you down the road of thinking how costly that would be for you.
If your security procedures are subject to outside scrutiny, such as a medical office, a financial firm, or a business that accepts credit cards, your security measures have large been defined for you.
The Cost of a Security Breach
In their annual report on The Cost of a Data Breach, IBM states that the average cost per breach in 2021 was $.24 million. To quote another, perhaps more accurate cost for breaches, Business.com cites a similar study that business breaches cost from $100,000 to $1.24 million.
The complete cost estimates in the IBM report come from:
- Detection and Escalation of the problem
- Notifying Authorities, partners, and customers of the breach
- Lost business or lost customers
- Post breach costs, including credit reporting costs for affected customers, regulatory fines, and legal expenditures
Where do the attacks start?
IBM reports that most attacks come from compromised credentials (stolen or exposed logins), and then, probably due to compromised credentials, business email compromises are the most costly attacks.
In addition, it takes organizations almost 7 months to discover that they have a breach, on average.

As a core part of our services, we do the following:
- Study your network, applications, devices, and data stores to determine what improvements can be made with the assets you’ve already invested in.
- We look at the practices that you have in place to see if changes are needed, and if so, what it would take to “raise the bar” to a level that is secure and compliant.
- If we provide support services, we will put monitoring services in place to track the state of assets in place. Our monitoring can be very detailed, and track things like low toner in printers, whether a current workstation is active or not, and if website or online assets are working.
