Network and Cybersecurity
Cyberthreats are on the rise. In today’s world, network and IT security are major concerns. With a growing number of devices on the network, viruses, and an increasing number of phishing schemes, you need to be on your guard and prepared. These days having a good firewall and some antivirus software are not enough. We take the security of our clients’ networks very seriously.
We use a planned multi-level approach to make sure your network, data, and people are safe.
Microsoft 365’s Exchange Online Protection
If you are like most businesses today you have a subscription to Microsoft Office 365, providing you with Outlook and Exchange email in the cloud. Office 365 provides Exchange Online Protection (EOP) a cloud-based email-filtering service from Microsoft. This service aims to protect email users and the entire organization against spam and malware. It does this by filtering inbound and outbound email messages, checking for diverse threats. We can help you fine tune these settings to make sure they keep your email protected. If you don’t already have Office 365 we can help you migrate to this service.

Employee Cybersecurity Training and Awareness
All the hardware and software doesn’t help if your users click on links in phishing emails and enter their network credentials and passwords into web pages setup by cybercriminals to steal their personal identifiable information (PII).
With human error causing over 92% of data breaches, we understand the importance of focusing on the weakest link by empowering employees through self-improvement, personal protection, and engaging video-based training. To that end we provide our Breach Secure Now platform which includes the following:
- 45-minute online security awareness training course with certificate of completion
- Dark web monitoring
- Personal email account dark web scanning
- Weekly micro-security training videos & quizzes
- Unlimited phishing simulations
- Employee Vulnerability Assessment (EVA)
- Monthly security newsletter
Patch Management and Security Updates
Servers, workstations, software, and other hardware all have security patches and updates released on a regular basis. Hackers often target these vulnerabilities knowing that attacking a vulnerability is one of the best ways to get into your system. These patches and updates address vulnerabilities discovered that can lead to security holes or breaches. We use our Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM) software to make sure your operating systems, software, and hardware are all patched so your systems are not left open to attacks and data theft.
One of the cornerstones of our cybersecurity plan is Cisco Umbrella. Cisco Umbrella offers flexible, cloud-delivered security. It combines multiple security functions into one solution that extends protection to devices, remote users, and distributed locations anywhere.
DNS-Layer Security: Cisco Umbrella goes above and beyond what your firewall provides with DNS-layer security. Your computer uses DNS as the first step to connect to places on the Internet. By having Cisco Umbrella provide your DNS, every URL, website, and link you click on will be analyzed, and malicious and unwanted domains, IP addresses, and cloud applications will be blocked before a connection is ever established.
Content Filtering: Cisco Umbrella can also help you comply with internal policies or external regulations through it’s content filtering. Do you enforce acceptable web use to comply with internal policies? Are you required to meet compliance regulations for internet safety like CIPA? With Umbrella, you can effectively manage your user’s internet access through category-based content web filtering, allow/block lists, and SafeSearch browsing enforcement.
Network Security Audits
Network security audits can help you take an in-depth look at your network to help you identify your biggest security risks so you can make changes that will protect your company and its network. We can provide these security audits for you including internal and external vulnerability scans.
Are you complying with the NY State Shield Act?
On July 26, 2019, New York’s governor signed the “Stop Hacks and Improve Electronic Data Security” (SHIELD) Act which went into effect March 21, 2020. It amends the general business law and the state technology law in relation to notification of a security breach. The law covers all employers, individuals or organizations, regardless of size or location, which collect private information on New York State residents. It requires businesses to implement safeguards for the “private information” of New York residents and broadens New York’s security breach notification requirements.
Failure to implement a compliant information security program is enforced by the New York State Attorney General and may result in injunctive relief and civil penalties of up to $5,000 imposed against an organization and individual employees for “each violation.”
Let us help make sure your business is complying with the Shield Act and your data is protected.
