Top 3 Cybersecurity Nightmares

For the past 30 years, the internet has gradually become ingrained into every aspect of our lives. We do everything online now, from shopping to paying bills and working remotely. Thanks to lightweight laptops, tablets, and smartphones, we can work from anywhere anytime.

Our high-speed connected lives keep us productive and engaged; however, being connected to the digital world 24/7 leaves your business vulnerable to cyber security threats that can cost money, time, and reputation. With employees increasingly working remotely, never has there been a more crucial time for businesses to learn about the threats that Vision Net can help protect against.

Learn about the top 3 cybersecurity threats, and how Vision Net will prevent these threats from disrupting your business.

  1. Security breach and loss of data

A security breach means a loss of time, revenue, and damage to a business’s reputation. Businesses own sensitive data that, in the wrong hands, compromises the entire organization. Vision Net’s world-class Network Operating Center proactively monitors our client’s networks 24/7 to prevent security breaches from happening in the first place. But if a breach happens, it is important that your data is not lost or otherwise compromised. In the event of a disaster, whether man-made or natural, your first line of defense is Vision Net’s managed network to ensure your data is securely backed up offsite.

2. Ransomware, malware, and phishing attacks

Cyber attacks come in the form of malicious attacks cybercriminals use to block you from accessing your data, controlling your data, and monetizing your data. After the initial attack, ransomware may attempt to spread throughout your network to shared drives, servers, attached computers, and other accessible systems. Ransomware is a potential nightmare for unprepared businesses, but Vision Net’s proactive monitoring and security services can help keep your data safe.

3. Password manager hacking

More and more businesses require employees to use password managers as part of their security protocol. Randomly generated alpha-numeric passwords are safer than passwords we choose, but they’re not immune to hacking if your network is not secured. Combining a trusted password manager with a robust and secure network will make your business a hardened target that can deter hackers. Vision Net provides a complete suite of protection for your business.

Though we usually hear about high-profile cyber-attacks on large corporations, cyber-criminals target even small-medium-sized businesses because your information is just as valuable and often, easier to access and sell. Businesses are unknowingly leaving themselves vulnerable to an attack, simply because they make cybersecurity mistakes that are easily exploited. Vision Net provides a complete security suite to help ensure your business thrives despite a cyber attacker’s malicious intent.
