In 2021, projections were that a cyber attack occurred every 11 seconds and the total impact of global cyber attacks came in at an astounding $6.1 Trillion. To make matters worse, expert projects have that rising to $10.5T by 2025 (see link here). With those projections, it’s no wonder that according to a study by IDG Communications, a technology media group, “90% of security leaders believe they’re falling short on addressing their cyber risk.”
Your IT team may do an excellent job at keeping your systems running well, but the truth is that unless you have dedicated personnel who specialize in cyber security, there are likely to be gaps in your security coverage.
Knowing that cyber threats are on the rise is one thing, being proactive about protecting your organization is another.
Five Areas to Consider When Choosing a Cybersecurity Partner
Proven Track Record
- How long have they been in business?
- Do they have customer testimonials or reviews available?
Accessibility & Responsiveness
- Do they provide 24/7 monitoring?
- What does their support look like?
- If a threat is detected, how do they respond?
- What is your impression of them on your initial consultation call?
Proactive In Defense
- Do they manage patching?
- Do they perform dark web scans for your information?
- Do they conduct security awareness for your employees or phishing test campaigns?
Up To Date
- On threats
- On solutions and product stacks
- On training
- How will you know they’re actually doing what you’re paying for?
- Do they perform an initial assessment or just start?
- How thorough is their assessment?
Ultimately, the question comes down to: Do you feel comfortable and confident that your security partner will be able to identify threats, be proactive in defense, and be able to effectively handle any attacks that may get through?
