CTI's 3 Prong Approach to Network Security

Local Data Backup: Installation of a NAS (network attached storage) handles fast local backups and encryption of a server data and workstation.

Cloud Data Backup: Enterprise cloud solutions guarantee data is always safe and available.

Data Loss Disaster Recovery: Assessment and retrieval of corrupted or lost data whether one bad file or an entire hard drive is malfunctioning. 

Data Security: Strategic privilege management, data encryption, and information architecture ensure only users with the proper credentials have access to sensitive files.

Secure Data Destruction: A system of redundant erasing, crippling, and dismantling leaves no trace of previous data on retired hard drives.

Email Encryption: Send and receive secure emails containing sensitive information without any worry of interception.

Anti-Virus: An enterprise anti-virus solution automatically updated with the latest virus definitions constantly examines software and files before opening them, and scans browser search results for possible malicious sites.

Computer Virus Recovery: Immediately, the threat is isolated before more damage can be done. Then expert CTI staff members assess the situation and determine the best options for virus removal.

Network Monitoring: Automated logging of possible malicious cyber activity and content filtering.

Firewall Configuration: Lock down the traffic streaming in and out of a network with a device which can quickly process all of a business’s data transfers while regulating access.

Employee Training: Group or one-on-one sessions helping users to understand the importance of safe practices, and to learn about better procedures that fit their workflow and keep a company secure.

Helpful Articles: Periodic articles provide a basic knowledge of terminology and on-going changes in the field of data security.

Security Audits: A careful inspection of a business’s network, and practices determines vulnerability and reveals necessary corrective measures.

HIPAA/PCI Compliance Audits: A network security audit with applicable regulations in mind will determine if a business is operating within the bounds of government by-laws, which govern a particular industry.

Dark Web Monitoring

Dark Web Monitoring AKA Cyber Monitoring Will Help You & Your Data Stay Protected!

Did You Know?!

The Dark Web is estimated to be 500 times larger than the surface web.

The statistics in 2020 state that the dark web makes up for 48% of the internet! With the dark web and the deep web combined this makes up for almost 95% of the internet in total, meaning that only 5% is taken up by the surface web.

These 3 words ‘The Dark Web’ can bring a lot of fear and/or questions to mind.

The dark web is no joke, and now more than ever it is so important to make sure that you as an individual and your company should make sure that you are doing everything possible to keep your information secure.

 

The Risks Are Real!

  • $150 MILLION — That’s what the average cost of a SINGLE data breach will exceed by 2020.
  • 2 BILLION in JUST 6 MONTHS — That’s how many records were LOST or STOLEN in data breaches in 2017.
  • 60% of businesses CLOSE THEIR DOORS after a cyber attack.
  • ONE-HALF of small businesses have already experienced data breaches in the last 12 months.

Computer Security Tips:

 

Avoiding viruses, malware, and phishing attacks is easy if you're cautious.

Follow these basic tips below to help users consider safe practices while on the web.

  • Do NOT share passwords
  • Don't make the office email password something simple, and share it with every employee.
  • If you suspect a machine has been compromised, disconnect the computer from the network and call CTI's help desk immediately.
  • Beware when downloading from the internet, no matter what - double and then triple check where you are actually downloading something from.
  • Don't instantly click the first link you see when searching something on the web, it could be a virus. Always make sure that the domain name is what you expect, or type in manually the webpage you want to visit.
  • Don't open zip files or any other files from someone who didn't tell you that they were sending you something - Many email attacks look like they are from someone on your contact list. Before clicking, get in touch with them and ask if they sent you something.
  • Attention Medical and Dental Practices! Losing data due to a RansomWare attack is a HIPAA - PHL breach, because you cannot prove data wasn't stolen before being encrypted.

Did You Know?!

Email Encryption

Numerous amount of emails are transmitted in clear text - meaning that they are susceptible to eavesdropping and the subsequent disclosure of personally identifiable information.

Email encryption is encryption of email messages to protect the content from being read by entities other than the intended recipients, it may also include authentication. You should NEVER send PII (personally identifiable information) such as driver's license numbers, passwords or social security numbers using unencrypted email

 

With Email Encryption: 

  • Secure communications in order to prevent sensitive information from being inadvertently shared
  • Build a reputation of trust/security so customers and prospects feel confident when sharing information
  • Enhance compliance with information privacy and security regulations such as HIPAA, SOX, GLBA, and many more

Network Firewall

Network Firewall is a hardware based device that acts as a physical layer between the internet based cloud, and it protects the internal network from unwanted traffic coming in

A network firewall is the first line of defense when it comes to protecting your network and your data from internet borne threats and hackers. The hardware that is provided by an internet service provider (ISP) or a residential grader router just isn't enough to effectively protect your business.

If you don't have an internet security appliance, then your business is exposed to a countless amount of risks.

 

Features Include: 

  • Gateway Anti-Virus & Anti-Spyware
  • Content Filtering
  • Intrusion Prevention & Detection System
  • Application Layer Filtering
  • Reporting

RansomWare

Out of the menagerie of virus attacks, RansomWare (CryptoWall, CryptoLocker) is the most threatening for users, businesses, and networks. Typically, RansomWare is delivered in an email, making false claims.

Computer Viruses

Modern viruses have become far worse than they use to be. Distributers of viruses and malware are more often criminals than pranksters whose product is designed to gather information which can be sold to other thieves, or used to steal money directly from you.

Theft & Loss

While you're worried about all of the people trying to get to your data and infect your software, DON'T forget there are plenty of people who would just grab your laptop bag and run!

Tampering

Just a 7 letter word that defines something that we never want to come in contact with - HACKERS. Anyone can download and exploit from the internet and use it to break into an under-protected network.
