The news seems to always be telling the story of a major security breach. The truth is that not only are large companies at risk, but small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are also primary targets for cybercriminals. CRI’s cybersecurity team can assess your systems for adequate security for your particular risks and help better protect you from cybercriminals.
Internal Vulnerability Analysis
Cybersecurity risks are both external (i.e. hackers) and internal, whereby an organization’s employees are the cybercriminal(s). And both of these malicious groups count on exploitation of internal vulnerabilities to execute the crime and eventually escape with assets. Therefore, an excellent way to defend your entity against both groups is to perform a risk-based analysis of internal vulnerabilities. Contact CRI’s experienced cybersecurity team for assistance with resolving potential shortfalls of your defenses in this critical area.
One key way to know if your systems are protected from cybercrimes is to conduct a penetration (“pen”) test of your network. CRI’s IT professionals can examine your systems and see where the “holes” are in your cyber defenses. This analysis provides valuable information to guide business decisions designed to better protect your entity’s IT assets.
One way cybercriminals can hack into systems and create havoc is through social engineering, or convincing an innocent employee to take an action that is detrimental to the entity. Whether it is phishing, spear phishing, whaling, or “CEO fraud” (a.k.a. “BEC fraud”), social engineering plays a key role in exploitation and resulting crimes.
The good news is that social engineering is reasonably preventable! Ask CRI’s cybersecurity team to work with your management and provide consulting services devised to help educate your team and deter these cybercrimes from happening to your organization.
