Los Angeles Cyber Security
Use NexusTek IT Cyber Security for Your Business Needs
The increase in online transactions and activities over the past several years has resulted in a corresponding increase in cyber attacks. Cyber criminals devote a lot of time and resources looking for ways to access personal and confidential information shared online; this is then used for a variety of illegal purposes, typically with devastating consequences. Some of the negative consequences businesses may incur as a result of cyber attacks include financial penalties as well as the loss of trust by their customers. As a business owner, it is therefore important to put measures in place to ensure the security of your customers’ data.
WHAT IS CYBER SECURITY?
Cyber Security is the practice of ensuring that computer networks and systems are protected from cyber criminals. Depending on the nature and size of the computer network, a variety of strategies can be implemented to harden the network. Due to the intricacies involved in securing a network, it is recommended that businesses retain the services of a third-party cyber security provider for this purpose.
BENEFITS OF THIRD-PARTY CYBER SECURITY SPECIALISTS
There are several reasons why you should use a third-party cyber security provider to secure your business network:
- Skill: Finding individuals with the right skill sets to secure a network can be a challenge; at present, there is a shortage of skilled cyber security specialists. By using a third-party cyber security provider, you are no longer responsible for hiring responsible specialists.
- Compliance: There are various regulations and standards to be adhered to when securing the data of your customers which you may not be aware of; examples of such standards include PCI DSS and HIPAA, among others. A third-party cyber security provider will be aware of these standards and ensure that your business is in compliance with these standards and regulations.
- Cost: Using a third-party cyber security provider is generally cheaper than building your security team in-house. Typically, all that is required is a fixed regular fee when using a third-party provider.
