Cyber Security For Business

Cyber-attacks have become an increasingly large problem for small and midsized businesses as each day passes. Technology advances have helped businesses over the last several years but cyber-attacks continue to become much more sophisticated. Small and midsized businesses have become inviting targets due to the lack of proper security implementation, shortage of a well-trained, full-time IT staff, and the inability to actively monitor and respond to threats. Gone are the days of a single layer of protection on the perimeter of a network.

Let’s face it… Cyber Security can be overwhelming for small businesses.  But with the constantly evolving cyber threat landscape, businesses need to stay safe and protect themselves from being hacked. With this in mind, Advocate One can mitigate cyber threats and secure your business.

The Importance of Cybersecurity in a Remote Work Environment

Working remotely in the U.S. has been on the rise for several years.  In 2015, 3.9 million people in the U.S. worked remotely.  With the COVID-19 health crisis changing the work environment for many, 16 million people are now working from home, according to a April 2020 Slack survey. While this does provide a safer work environment for many during the pandemic, it does open the door to an increase in cybercrimes.  Now more than ever, keeping the digital workplace secure is important.
