    IS YOUR BUSINESS PREPARED FOR TODAY’S CYBER CRIME?

    Big companies make all of the headlines when a breach occurs. Online, in newspapers, or on TV, you hear about these breaches almost on a weekly basis. It would be easy to assume that cybercrime does not happen to small businesses, but it does. A cyber-attack can cripple your business.

    BDS will protect, monitor, and remediate threats to your environment 24x7x365.

    Most SMBs barely have enough IT staff to manage the core infrastructure, technically support business growth projects, and support end users. Adding a dedicated and experienced security team for 24x7x365 protection is just not usually in the budget.

    Business Security Risks You Should Think About

    FINANCIAL RISK

    Think about what could happen to your organization if your website or email were inactive and no longer under your control.

    OPERATIONAL RISK

    Think about what could happen if system outages caused partial or even full downtime for your staff?

    REPUTATIONAL RISK

    Think about what a cybercriminal could do to your company’s reputation by gaining access to your list of clients, proprietary data or financials.
