Cybercrime is not the most costly of illegal activities. That dubious distinction goes to government corruption, followed by drug trafficking. Cybercrime comes in third. Yet cybercrime does take the top spot when it comes to numbers of victims. A managed services provider can help.
Cybercrime has hundreds of millions of victims. Two-thirds of people online have experienced personal information theft or compromise.
A 2018 McAfee Security study suggested that represents more than 2 billion individuals!
If any of those people work at your business, it could mean trouble for your security, too. Why? People tend to think they have too many passwords to remember. So, they use the same login information again and again. That means a criminal could leverage employee data to access business systems, too.
Cybercrime is a global problem for both individuals and businesses. The bad actors, after all, can make big bucks from their crime with low risk of discovery. The global cost of cybercrime is an estimated $600 billion a year. And no one and no business is immune.
More people are going online. Businesses are becoming more reliant on digital transactions especially with the transition to working from home (WFH).
With that cybercriminals are quickly adapting. They’re motivated, but are you?
Securing Your Business with an MSP
It’s safe to say your Information Technology team has a lot to do. Everyone at your office is working hard, but is cybersecurity getting the attention it deserves? Ultimately, there is no better way to keep your systems secure than with managed services.
A managed services provider (MSP) helps your business stay ahead of security threats. Finding out about risks or vulnerabilities after the fact is no good. That’s like closing the barn door after the prize stallion has already bolted or applying for insurance once your vehicle is totaled.
An in-house cybersecurity team providing 24/7 protection isn’t workable for most businesses. It’s cost prohibitive for most small and mid-sized businesses.
Working with an MSP like Rapidweb is a more affordable alternative. You avoid investing in the latest technology and building up an on-premises infrastructure. Instead, you pay a consistent fee for the MSP to handle technology patching, monitoring, and assessments.
We use well-tested, leading-edge tech to stay on top of cybersecurity threats. As your strategic partner we can:
An internal IT team oversees many areas, but we on continuous monitoring. It keeps up to date on the global threat landscape and any industry vulnerabilities.
Still not convinced that paying an MSP is worth it? The average cost of a lost or stolen record was $148 per record in 2018. You might view working with an MSP as paying for insurance. With ongoing monitoring we help your business avoid security breaches. And their devastating costs (including to productivity, compliance, revenues, and brand reputation).
This extension of your security staff helps maximize resource efficiency. And their day-to-day focus is on reducing risk and minimizing damage from cyberthreats. With Rapidweb you add dedicated security experts to your team. Secure your technology while gaining advanced threat intelligence and customized security strategies.
