Sadly, When We Said Goodbye to October, We Also Said Goodbye to Cyber Awareness Month!
Allow me to begin by saying that every month should be Cyber Awareness Month. You don't go on a "Cyber Defense Holiday!" You should be in protection mode every minute of every day. Period. Connections for Business is always offering FREE help in these crucial, cyber-vulnerable times. I can’t tell you how many clients we’ve acquired simply because their IT experts weren’t up-to-speed on current best practices for cyber security and because of this they had exposed millions of dollars worth of data! Companies like Equifax® and Yahoo! thought they were safe, and look what happened to them. When you call Connections for Business, we will review and test your infrastructure for any points of vulnerability.
Don’t make the mistake of thinking your IT staff has it covered; you can’t afford that kind of uncertainty. We can schedule a private audit at your office. Call us at: 954-920-9604. Click here or call us today to schedule a free Cyber Security Assessment.
