“Pandemic tech” is the new buzz phrase used to describe how the COVID-19 virus forced many businesses to adapt to a new work environment. As large segments of the workforce moved from commercial buildings to home offices, technology companies offered solutions to help keep small and medium business (SMBs) operations running smoothly. Video conferencing, eSignature technology, and a multitude of integrated services were widely adopted. The convenience of working from home and the ability to avoid the drudgery of long commutes were met with great enthusiasm by many employees.
On the other hand, Cyber criminals seized the opportunity to exploit the unsuspecting, and sometimes naïve, workforce with creative attacks designed to steal their data or hold it hostage. Today, the global cyber threat continues to evolve at a rapid pace. The number of successful data breaches is rising each month. Medical services, retailers and public entities experienced the most breaches, and without a doubt, malicious criminals are responsible for most exploits.
As the scale of the cyber threat continues to rise, do you have someone monitoring your technology interests and livelihood? Who is protecting your machines from viruses, trojans, ransomware, and other malware? Who is advocating that your data remains exclusively in your possession? To whom do you report phishing attempts, suspicious activities, or requests for information? Unfortunately, any business that has something of value is a potential mark for a criminal.

Just to be clear, SUURV is not a managed security service provider (MSSP). We handle the front lines of day-to-day IT operations. SUURV teams up with MSSPs based upon our client’s risk tolerance and capacity. Although we highly recommend you obtain an MSSP, SUURV only works with companies who will hire an MSSP or a Managed Detection and Response (MDR) provider when circumstances demand that to be a necessity.
