“Cybersecurity Breach Costs Company Millions.” “Global Ransomware Attacks on the Rise.”
We’ve all heard the headlines and the warnings. Yet, companies continue to fall victim to avoidable breaches. Why? Here are five common mistakes that cause businesses to fall short when it comes to securing their networks.
Not Taking Inventory
For most organizations, one of the most critical assets is their data. Make sure you know where your data resides and who has access to it. Obtaining a solution that continuously monitors your network for abnormal behavior is critical to identifying potential breaches.
Trying to Manage it All
Gone are the days when having the latest antivirus would give you peace of mind. Your antivirus program might find common malicious files, but hackers have gotten far more sophisticated. If you hire a Managed Service Security Provider (MSSP) they monitor your network 24/7 and have specialized knowledge and resources for cybersecurity.
Thinking There Are No Small Fish
The phrase “we have bigger fish to fry” comes to mind, but when it comes to cybersecurity, hackers go after companies of all sizes. The good news? What was once available only to enterprise and mid-market organizations is now making its way down into the small and medium-sized business (SMB) world. Managed Security Services continues to enhance features and advanced security technologies are now developed even in small size firewalls and endpoint protection solutions.
Forgetting that People are People
You can have the best-intentioned employees, but all it takes is one person to fall victim to a phishing attack and compromise your entire network. End users are a key component to your security and are the most exploited sector. Making a small investment in end-user training and awareness will go a long way to improving your security.
Failure to Accept the Inevitable
In today’s technology landscape being targeted by cyber thieves is not a matter of “if”, but “when.” Your network security depends on both your ability to detect threats, but also on how to respond to them. Make sure you have a plan in place for when the worst happens.

DataVizion Tech Summit Brings Together Industry Professionals to Share Latest in IT Security
The 2019 DataVizion Tech Summit, held May 1 in Omaha, Neb., brought together industry professionals and technology experts from more than 30 companies.
This year’s theme “Don’t Gamble with Security, Change the Odds” focused on the growing cyber security threats that businesses face and the tools and solutions to combat them.
“Any day of the week, you can read headlines about IT security breaches,” Kelly Schrad, DataVizion President and CEO, said. “Breaches are more common than ever, and hackers are growing in sophistication. We want to make sure our customers understand the potential risks and we provide the right solutions to protect their businesses.”
The day kicked off with Brenden Stai speaking on the importance of taking ownership. Stai is a motivational speaker and current Director of Athletic Development at the University of Nebraska, his alma mater.
Special guest speaker Erich Kron, a veteran information security professional from KnowBe4, shared a presentation about real-world cyber attacks, the social engineering tricks that make them effective, and what businesses can do to avoid falling victim.
