Where Is Your Company's Cyber Blind Spot?

Your IT staff is fighting tooth and nail to keep your business’s network free of unauthorized intruders. They are putting in long hours every day, scanning the network for signs of suspicious activity and advanced threat campaigns.

Here’s some bad news, though:

Despite the concerted efforts of your team members, they may be unable to successfully identify and thwart a cyberattack when it rears its ugly head. There is a strong possibility that your business lacks the skills, experience, manpower and monitoring tools necessary for keeping the network clean. There are simply too many advanced threats facing your organization.

According to a recent study from the Ponemon Institute, an overwhelming four out of five organizations admitted that they are vulnerable to hackers due to a lack of necessary infrastructure and experience.

Here are some additional findings from the report:

  • On average, businesses are dealing with more than one external cyberattack each month.
  • The average annual cost of a breach is $3.5 million.
  • Nearly half of all respondents suggested that insufficient risk awareness was a main barrier to achieving strong cybersecurity.

For these reasons, many businesses are now seeking help from third party managed service providers like Apex Technology Services. 35 percent of businesses now outsource Internet and social media monitoring to an external third party. And 21 percent plan to outsource within the next two years.

So if your IT department is unable to get the job done on its own, consider following suit and looking into how a managed services provider can protect your network. Apex Technology Services will work with your business to come up with a custom plan for addressing its security needs.
