Cyber Security

Cyber Security

Ransomware, Phishing, Social Engineering, Spear-Phishing, Spoofing… It seems like every week there is a new type of cyber attack that you have to be cautious of, especially as a business owner.  That’s because it’s nearly every day that you hear about another small or mid-size business that was taken down by cyber criminals.  Unfortunately, cyber security can feel like a very unfun game of Whack-a-Mole.

It doesn’t have to be that way.  Partner with WingSwept and you can have the peace of mind that comes with knowing that we are keeping up with the latest cyber security developments and protecting your assets, while you are focusing on the other areas of your business that need your attention.  Our team works tirelessly to understand the current threat landscape, including the latest attacks, and to take any necessary actions to protect our clients.

Risk Assessment

The first step is always to perform a risk assessment.  We will work with you to develop a risk-based approach.  We want to understand as much about your business as we can.  By looking at the value of your assets, including the value of your business, we can help you properly assess what would be appropriate to spend on risk management and/or risk mitigation.

We will analyze your network architecture, hardware and software, policies, security practices and everything else that impacts your overall security.  We will probe for vulnerabilities that could be attacked.  We will share our findings with you and start the discussion on a plan of attack.  From there we can build the cyber security defenses that would best fit your organization.

Cyber Security Strategy

We don’t believe that one size fits all and we understand that different businesses have different tolerances for risk.  We will give you our expert advice on the cyber security architecture and policies to put in place based on our assessment of your vulnerabilities and our understanding of your risk tolerance.  We will help you put together a Planning Horizon with short and long term goals.  We have a full suite of tools to deploy for each of our clients depending on how much risk they are willing to accept.

Our network engineers will then work quickly to put any new security safeguards in place.  They will work with the rest of our team to ensure that necessary policies are developed and shared with your users.  And very importantly, our team will work with you on implementing any necessary user training.

Much of what gets implemented will be operating in the background with no noticeable difference for the majority of your users.  However, we will work to educate your users so that they can immediately inform us if they see something “phishy”.

Constant Monitoring and Reassessment

Our team and our tools will be constantly monitoring your systems for any signs of threats.  If we see something, we will quickly take the appropriate countermeasures to eliminate the threat or start the conversation with you to mitigate or manage the risk.

Managing cyber security risk is an ongoing process.  WingSwept will work with our industry partners to ensure that we are aware of developing threats and new attack methods and will work with you to make the appropriate course corrections along the way.  That may include utilizing new tools and implementing new safeguards.  It will definitely include consistent user education.

If your business is based in Raleigh, Cary, Durham, Apex, Clayton or another Triangle area city or town, let’s talk about how WingSwept can help you protect your assets with our cyber security services.  Call us today at 919.779.0954 or submit an online request!
