Managed IT services, today is an important part of information technology and is provided by a third party contractor.

If you don’t think you need robust Managed IT Services, all you have to do is Google “causes of network and data security breaches” and you’ll quickly see some key themes ranking up there in the top spots – sophisticated malware, system updates (patches, endpoint), lack of incident response planning’s, and insider threats all lead when it comes to top security challenges.
NYC Cybersecurity Consulting experts will help you get to a confident place of security for your organization. Relying on your internal IT team can be timely, tedious and very expensive. And, if you are a small business this can be even more challenging. But there are some very basic things that can be done with minimal resources and dollars to help ensure your company’s overall network security.
Let’s talk about just a few.
- Insider Threats – these are most often associated with internal malicious users, but in truth, employees are inadvertently leaking corporate data daily due to a lack of training.
- System updates/patches – keeping network and computer systems up-to-date is imperative in patching vulnerabilities that hackers know to exploit.
- Incident Response planning/strategy – If, or when, an exploitation is detected, your response time to mitigate the exploitation will be paramount. Any delay in incident response can result in a significant loss of confidential information, revenue and customer confidence
