They’re throwing mud: You need a non-stick wall

You may have heard me say before that your business is at a greater risk of being hacked today, than ever before.

Here’s the thing though – cyber-criminals are not specifically targeting your business. They’ve never heard of you!

No, they’re targeting all businesses, all the time. Using clever automated tools that attempt to sniff out weaknesses, and then infect your computers with ransomware.

This is the terrifying crime where your data is locked away, and you can’t get it back until you pay the ransom fee.

Ransomware is targeted at vulnerabilities, not individuals or businesses.

So, think of their attempts to hack your system as simply them throwing mud at the wall. If some sticks, they will investigate further.

Best form of defense then is to make sure the mud can’t stick.

You need a non-stick wall!

And these days, that means investing in appropriate ongoing support to protect your business.

Cyber-security isn’t a one-off job. That’s asking for trouble.

Today’s cyber-security threats are evolving all the time. And your IT systems need to be proactively protected by professionals who care.

Does your current IT support provider go out of their way to help protect your business?

Or does it sometimes feel like you’re just paying for an expensive tech support helpline?
