Cybersecurity Risk Assessment in New York and New Jersey 

Even small businesses can have complex technology environments with many moving parts.

At Tekie Geek, we offer comprehensive risk assessments for businesses throughout New York and New Jersey, with a special focus on small and medium-sized enterprises. Learn more about cybersecurity risk management.

Managed IT Risk Assessment Services

Unfortunately, any business can be the victim of a cyber attack, regardless of its size or industry. A cybersecurity risk assessment helps you identify and understand potential threats, and then take steps to protect your business. Our comprehensive approach includes:


We start by taking account of all your company’s physical and digital assets. Tekie Geek will map your network architecture, inventory all your endpoint devices, and identify all entry points into your network. We also take stock of any regulatory requirements your business might need to meet for compliance. For example, organizations that manage protected health information must adhere to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

Threat Identification 

Bad actors use a wide range of tactics to try to access private data for financial gain. They may use malware, ransomware, or social engineering scams such as phishing. Tekie Geek stays up to date on the latest cyber threat information and can advise your team on industry-specific trends. We will help you understand the various types of cybersecurity attacks, what assets they would affect, and what the implications would be for your business operations.

Risk Analysis and Prioritization 

Once we’ve documented potential vulnerabilities, we can map out the likelihood of specific risk scenarios. This helps us prioritize risks so you can decide what steps to take to protect your business. We’ll recommend data security tools and practices and share the latest insights in cybersecurity.

Some activities are potentially risky but important for business operations. For example, many companies use software-as-a-service (SaaS) tools, such as Dropbox or Google Workspace. Eliminating these tools would help you avoid risk, but that’s probably not feasible for your business. Instead of avoiding the risk entirely, we mitigate it by implementing SaaS protections that let you use cloud-based applications safely.

After we’ve completed an initial evaluation, Tekie Geek also can provide ongoing monitoring and testing. We’ll document our assessment so all stakeholders in your organization understand your complete risk profile and mitigation strategies. And as a managed IT provider, we’re equipped to implement a suite of security and business continuity services tailored to your operations.

Continuity Planning

A business continuity plan is simply a set of practices to prevent cybersecurity risks, coupled with a recovery strategy in case attacks do occur. Our continuity services include:

  • File restoration: We house backups of files in auxiliary storage so we can quickly transfer them to their original location if any data is lost. 
  • Instant virtualization: We make it easy to host your protected systems locally or on the cloud.
  • Ransomware detection: We’ll implement protections that find ransomware to help prevent extensive damage.
  • Backup tests: Daily testing evaluates your ability to retrieve data if an attack takes place. 

Our managed IT services include 24/7 monitoring, so you’re always protected, even outside of normal business hours.

Cybersecurity Risk Assessment Benefits

Working with a qualified service provider like Tekie Geek to complete a cybersecurity risk assessment offers many benefits. These include:

  • Reduced downtime: Phishing, malware, and other attacks can interrupt your business operations, resulting in days or even weeks of downtime.
  • Data protection: Attacks can expose sensitive information, including your intellectual property or customer data. Securing potential attack points protects your data, whether it’s hosted locally or in the cloud.
  • Cost savings: The initial investment of a risk assessment helps you prevent security breaches that are costly to fix, offering long-term savings.
  • Training opportunity: Your risk evaluation also can help clarify your company’s training needs. For example, if you find employees are using weak or duplicate passwords, you can offer guidance on password hygiene or implement two-factor authentication.

Of course, minimizing risk helps protect your business’s public image, as well.
