Are You The One Ultimately Responsible For Your Organization’s Security?
Large, trusted organizations have allowed hackers to steal literally billions of login details and personally identifiable information. These stolen user names and passwords are being used to break into networks all around the world. And according to Intermedia* 3 out of 4 cyber attacks are targeted at businesses with less than 1,000 employees.
Take this quick 4 question survey to find out if your organization is ready for a cyber attack:
- When did your organization last successfully test restore your critical business data?
- Are any of your organization’s user names and passwords on the Dark Web?
- How long does it take to deploy critical security updates to your organization's software?
- Are you prepared to deal with ransomware attacks and demands?
If you answered “I don’t know” to any of these questions then now is the time to take concrete actions to protect your business. The stakes are higher with Healthcare IT. General IT providers often don’t understand the intricacies of EMR solutions, the importance of protecting patient information and often don’t appreciate how much of a target your organization is to hackers. Nor are they prepared to respond to an attack if one happens within your organization.
