Upon completion of the program, your employees will be in a much better position to recognize an attack or suspicious email when they see one, significantly reducing the chance of a security breach.
Case Study: Cyber Liability Coverage Saved Family-Owned Manufacturing Company Targeted by Cyber Attack
After a successful email spear phishing attack on a small business, attackers were able to infiltrate the network and deploy malicious code to monitor and log keystrokes. The code sat undetected for months until a coordinated effort to encrypt each individual machine within the network completely disabled network function for a week.

Many small companies don’t have the budget, tools, and staff needed to take a strong security posture. A managed cybersecurity partner can augment your internal staff and provide around-the-clock monitoring at the level of an SOC. A cybersecurity service provider (CSP) also offers services for patching, antivirus tools, and security assessments to ensure your company identifies and fixes any security vulnerabilities.
Ransomware is a very common threat that uses phishing emails and social engineering to trick employees into a false sense of trust so that they will click on an infected attachment. The hacker may pretend to be someone of authority, such as a supervisor. Other types of malware attacks are also common. Data that is stolen during a malware attack is often sold on the Dark Web.
Being prepared for and preventing cyberattacks is the best approach, but if one succeeds, your company needs to have a response plan in place. Identifying and intercepting a threat quickly using logging and alert capabilities will help minimize its impact. Understanding the root cause of the threat will keep it from occurring in the future.
