  • 62% of cyberattacks target small to mid size companies because their systems are easier to infiltrate

  • 1 in 3 of small to mid size businesses have little to no controls in place to prevent cyber attacks

  • 16% of small to mid size businesses conduct security assessments only AFTER a breach.

The average cost of a data breach for small to mid size businesses is between $56,000 and $150,000, but the total costs could be more when factoring in related costs such as fines, forensic examination charges, loss of clientele, etc.

In the aftermath of the cyberattack on Target, cybersecurity expert, Shawn Henry pointed out: “Technology is a piece of the solution, but it’s not the sole solution.”

So, how can you safeguard your business? To mitigate the risk of a cyberattack, you must build a culture of information security in your organization by regularly monitoring your security posture through security assessments.

VNC recommends security assessments be periodic exercises that test your organization’s security preparedness. Our VNC assessments include:

  • Checks for vulnerabilities in your IT systems

  • Checks for vulnerabilities in your business processes

  • Recommendations to lower the risk of attacks

  • Ensure your systems and policies are up to date​

Do You Need a Security Assessment?

Sort answer - ABSOLUTELY YES! In fact we recommend doing security assessments regularly.

Here are a few important reasons you should be conducting regular security assessments:

  • Cloud Migration: Gartner research predicts that over the next four years, at least 95 percent of cloud security failures will be the fault of the user, not the provider. However, adopting cloud visibility and control tools, such as dashboards for monitoring cloud usage, will reduce occurrences of security failures by at least a third.

  • Ensure compliance: HIPAA, FISMA, GDPR, PCI DSS-the regulations that you need to remain compliant can feel endless.  Regular internal security assessments will help to ensure you pass third-party audits for compliance certifications.

  • Detect security breaches: Often, companies are not aware of a security breach until the hacker demands ransom or confidential data starts circulating in the public domain. Security assessments help you identify and correct breaches more quickly. The faster you identify and contain a data breach, the lower your costs will be.
