Cybersecurity Assessment
Security risks to your business technology come in many different forms: Cyber-attacks, Ransomware, DDoS attacks, careless or disgruntled employees, just to name a few. A lack of awareness and preparation leaves you vulnerable to events that can disrupt your business and cause financial, regulatory, legal and reputational damage. The first step in a holistic Cybersecurity strategy is identifying and assessing weak points that increase your risk. Common sources include new cloud services, legacy technology, business process gaps, and potential human error.

Platinum ITS’s security assessments are non-obtrusive to your business operations. Our main methods for data collection consists of interviews with technical and business executives, vulnerability scans and network penetration testing. The results will provide us with a fairly accurate understanding of your readiness and resilience against cyber risks. The findings are packaged into an independent Risk Assessment Report that provides you with the details on your most significant risk exposure, as well as the potential consequences of an attack. Your report will include recommendations on remediation steps customized for your business needs, available resources and risk goals

Proactive Monitoring and Incident Response
As your business grows, your IT systems become more complex and will have exponentially more weaknesses that can be exploited. Detecting and sifting through the constant barrage of malicious threats crossing your network every hour is a reactive approach to dealing with threats. A proactive approach is needed to fully secure your business, and it begins with understanding the integrity of your infrastructure in real-time.

Platinum ITS Cybersecurity Monitoring services collect and analyze the data from security events and related intelligence in real-time. This enables you to respond to more immediate threats with greater agility without disrupting business operations.

Platinum ITS Monitoring services include security event management and correlation. Platinum ITS Cybersecurity Operations Center (CSOC) identifies, communicates and escalates security incidents.

Cybersecurity Remediation Services
Platinum ITS Remediation services augment your IT team with several actions to secure your business in the event of an attack. This could be securing your systems, restoring backup data after a ransomware attack, containing and cleaning up infections or upgrading vulnerable systems & hardware.

We will be a proactive partner in managing threats and minimizing the financial and organizational impact the disruption will have on your business operations. By outsourcing Cybersecurity projects, you free up your internal team to focus on your core competencies and the innovative projects that drive your business forward.

The State of Cybersecurity for Small and Medium Businesses
According to The 2016 State of SMB Cybersecurity Report, 50% of SMBs have been breached in the past 12 months. Yet only 14% rate their ability to mitigate cyber risks, vulnerabilities and attacks as highly effective. It’s no longer a question of if your company will be targeted but when and how extensive will the damage be.

Most SMBs have put cyber security under the technology umbrella, which forces their IT teams to focus on patching and maintaining vulnerabilities to the best of their knowledge and skill. That is simply not enough. A proactive, holistic approach to protecting your business assets can prevent attacks, minimize damage, and ensure that your company survives an attack and recovers faster.
