Cyberattacks are among the biggest concerns in today’s world. A Varonis study reveals 62 percent of small businesses experience a cyber attack in 2018. However, this problem doesn’t simply affect small business.
Here are a few major companies that experienced a cyber breach in the last few years:
- Whole Foods
This doesn’t even begin to talk about other major breaches in cyber security, which you can read about right here. But nonetheless, the message is clear: cybercrime is at an all-time high and it shows no signs of slowing down.
Our Business IT Support team at Nerds Support is making it their resolution to keep providing clients with the best IT services in Miami and to give prospective clients a new IT Strategy, designed to make their businesses efficient.
If you are looking to plan an IT strategy for your business, then the following three components are key to making your business safer.
1. Miami Data Backups:
Ransomware ignited a new fear within business owners. For months, business owners without a proper IT strategy imagined what they would do if their company was under a ransomware attack.
- Should they pay the fine and hope the hacker would return the files?
- Should they find someone to help them?
They struggled to make a solid choice.
Nerds Supports clients, on the other hand, don’t have to make that choice. Not only did our IT Support team carry extensive knowledge on how to take down malware, but Nerds Support also conducts daily backups using cloud computing.
This means that at the end of the work day, Nerds Support always saves a copy of all your company data. That way, if something happens the next day, at least you still have the data from the previous work day. Having a data backup plan not only makes a company feel safer, but also guarantees their company safety.
2. Miami Cloud Security:
When our Managed IT team explains cloud solutions to our clients, we always drive the point that the cloud’s strongest advantage is the security that cloud solutions provides. Nerds Support’s data centers are heavily monitored and constantly scanned to make sure your company files stay safe.
With the OS33 cloud computing software, our Business IT Support team makes sure your company files are secure, allowing businesses to work from any place, at any time, with complete ease. Our cloud runs efficiently with no problems and it is just as ready to take on Cyber Security.
3. Business Continuity:
In times of crisis, you need to ensure your business doesn’t stop. The Lockdown in 2020 proved that businesses that can’t operate remotely face great insecurity.
During 2017, South Florida hit a major setback with Hurricane Irma. Businesses were left in the dark for anywhere between days up to weeks, leaving Miami business owners anxious to get back to work. But at Nerds Support, all the company’s clients were able to continue running their business through the hurricane.
This was because Nerds Support’s servers were running at 100% capacity before, during and after the hurricane. That meant that nothing happened to all of our clients’ company data and even if their workplace was inaccessible, employees could have just opened their laptops from other locations and resumed working.
If you want to have a business IT strategy, you need to make sure it includes the following:
- Data Backups
- Cloud Security
- Business Continuity
As a business owner, it’s easy to understand why developing an IT strategy from scratch can be difficult. Cyber security is going to be important. So important in fact, it will be irresponsible not have an IT Strategy on hand.
The good news is that with Nerds Support, developing an IT strategy is as simple as making a phone call or visiting a website. Nerds Support’s clients are some of the most secure businesses and our Business IT Support team is ready for anything.
