Closing the Most Common Cybersecurity Holes
It’s a simple fact: You’d never want an unauthorized user to have access to your data. When thinking about cybersecurity, ask yourself what you risk losing. It could be something as small as losing your email contacts. It could be losing files on your computer. In a worst-case scenario, it could be losing the entirety of your company data. But where do you begin to find and fix your issues?
The rate of cyber attacks is rising, along with the cost to address them. According to CSO, cybersecurity spending will increase by $1 trillion in the next five years. It’s no longer realistic for businesses to leave their cyber protection up to chance. Working with Continuity Centers to create and enact a plan will guarantee your data and company are safe from threats.
Who’s the Biggest Threat to Your Business?
You are. The biggest threat to your cybersecurity isn’t an unknown hacker from across the globe – it’s the person who sits in the office with you. Without proper preparation and training, employees can accidentally give away sensitive information, like important passwords. It’s vital to make sure that all employees of the business are up-to-date on security measures and end-user security training.
Continuity Centers certifies that your employees are following cybersecurity best practices. We do this through auditing services, such as risk management and compliance reporting. We provide these services to eliminate the risk of employee data breaches, leaving you with peace of mind.

The Threat of a Cyberattack
Without the proper tools, your business can’t stop a cyberattack. Small Business Trends finds that 43 percent of cyberattacks target small businesses. These attacks are always changing and evolving to bypass security measures and programs. Thankfully, Continuity Centers has the expertise to combat them.
What are some common types of cyberattacks?
- Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS)
- Phishing scams
- Session hijacking
Due to their very nature, the different cyberattacks require constant study and research. Our team is constantly up to date on the latest cyberattacks that are a threat to you. Along with their expertise, our technicians use advanced tools that actively evolve to fight cyberattacks. Combining knowledge and tools, Continuity Centers provides constant protection to keep up with and outgrow the threats.
A Proactive vs. Reactive Response
Recovering from a cyberattack is no easy task. The recovery process can be expensive, depending on the damage done. And apart from the immediate damage, there are more negative factors to consider. A report from Deloitte states that “…the direct costs commonly associated with data breaches were far less significant than the ‘hidden’ costs.” In fact, in Deloitte’s scenarios, they accounted for “less than 5 percent of the total business impact.” Some reactive costs that impact businesses post-cyberattack include operational disruption, loss of customer relationships, and devaluation of trade names.
Instead of facing massive costs from a cyberattack, partner with Continuity Centers. A proactive response to setting up a dedicated network security plan allows you to minimize or eliminate all costs from a cyberattack. We know that cyberattacks can’t hurt you if they never hit you.
