As a business owner, information is your greatest asset. Access to your information is key to running a profitable business. It is no less valuable than human resources, financing, or equipment. However, your information is a distinct business asset. It contains operations, marketing, sales, and strategy knowledge that can be stolen, tampered with, or damaged by people within and outside of the business. The goal of cybersecurity services is to protect your information technology assets.
Large businesses address cybersecurity concerns with thorough and systematized processes and protection measures that are not cost-effective for small to medium-sized businesses. What should you do about cybersecurity if you’re a small business? Chortek offers an assessment which is based on an industry-leading approach to formalizing cybersecurity preparedness (Council on Cybersecurity Top 20 Critical Security Controls).
With a cybersecurity audit, you’ll be more prepared to answer questions about cybersecurity when current and prospective customers and vendors ask about it. You may also receive lower rates on your business insurance. Finally, it will help you identify opportunities for improvement, which can reduce the risk of fraud and hacking.
