Network and cyber security for SME's

Network and cyber security for SMEs

Most of us assume that cyber-attacks only happen to the negligent and the reckless. The reality is that cyber-criminals are upping their game at every turn, and if yours is a business without proper safety measures in place, you might be at risk.

With hackers adapting their strategies to match the sophistication of other contemporary safeguards, even the most vigilant among us can be victims of cyber-crime. 

Small and medium-sized businesses who are not relying upon experts in network and cyber security to manage their data security and protect their digital assets are sitting ducks, ready to be pounced upon by predatory thugs who anonymously threaten and coerce from behind their keyboards. 

According to The State of Ransomware, a global survey conducted in 2020 by Sophos, 24% of organisations surveyed in South Africa witnessed a significant ransomware attack in the last 12 months, of which 27% of those hit by ransomware attacks admitted to paying the ransom to regain access to their data. 

What are the primary sources of cyber risk for SMEs? 

It doesn’t require reckless broadcasting of sensitive information to make your enterprise vulnerable to attack. All it takes is one insecure password, one legitimate-looking email, or one unprotected node in the network to leave the door open to all varieties of blackmail, theft and general misery. 

Cybercriminals are savvy to yesterday’s gatekeepers and the legacy safeguards, which most of us rely upon to protect our digital assets and personal data. The digital age is dark and full of terrors to the uninitiated and the under-informed.

The scene appears rather bleak when you’re standing alone in this unfamiliar and ever-changing territory. 

When you partner with Checksum Network Security Services and are covered by the industry-leading services we offer, you can leave the selfish cyber-vandals and cowardly miscreants demanding ransoms to us.
