Even small businesses can have complex technology environments with many moving parts. Whether you have five employees or a team of 100 or 1,000, you need to be proactive about managing your network security and protecting your data. 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.
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).
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.
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.
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:
Our managed IT services include 24/7 monitoring, so you’re always protected, even outside of normal business hours.
Working with a qualified service provider like Tekie Geek to complete a cybersecurity risk assessment offers many benefits. These include:
Of course, minimizing risk helps protect your business’s public image, as well.
