What Do You Need to Know About Securing Your Business Against Cybercriminals?

Against Cybercriminals?

Your lawyer advises you regarding legal risk.

Your accountant advises you about financial risk.

Your doctor warns against health risks.

Here’s the question.

Who are you listening to about cybersecurity risks?

The I.T. how to team provides executive-level IT security consulting for Geelong companies as well as businesses located across Australia.

What is Cybersecurity Consulting?

Cybersecurity consulting is different than an IT support company that you hire to make sure your antivirus is up to date and that your firewall is configured properly. Sure, we do those things too, but as a small part of a high-level, holistic approach to your overall IT security posture.

Cybersecurity begins with a thorough evaluation of every endpoint, application, and device that is on your network or connects to your network through Wi-Fi. This evaluation gives the I.T how to cybersecurity professionals a baseline from which to prepare a roadmap that will help you get from your current security posture to one that is governed by current IT security protocols that meet industry standards and legislative mandates.

Let’s face it. You can go to just about any computer repair shop in Geelong and have a computer-fix-it person install or update your antivirus software. If antivirus installation or updates were what you needed, you wouldn’t be reading this page.

Your business is likely at the stage where you need seasoned IT security professionals on your side. Professionals that will avoid stock answers to complex cybersecurity questions and issues, and instead will provide tailored IT security solutions to remediate any current vulnerabilities and secure your data and workflow.
