Make security a top priority
If you own a business, your company’s cyber security should be a top priority. Unfortunately, hacking incidents against small businesses increased by 424% in 2020.

What is cybersecurity?
Cybersecurity—also known as network security— is the practice of securing your company’s digital networks, devices, data, and programs against cyber attacks. These attacks typically aim to access, change, or destroy sensitive information essential to your company’s daily operations.
Sometimes, hackers and cybercriminals access this information to extort money from companies. Other times, they steal files to disrupt a manufacturing supply chain or create downtime in which companies cannot work. And sometimes, hackers obtain valuable data to sell on the dark web.
These attacks frequently occur among organizations both large and small. At Network Elites, our unified cyber security service approaches include three primary elements: people, processes, and programs:
What is managed cybersecurity?
Companies can fill cyber security jobs in two ways: by hiring an in-house security team or outsourcing network security to an already-established IT managed services provider.
As an IT managed services company, our team members at Network Elites can partner with your company through remote internet systems to provide you with comprehensive network security services and support. You don’t need to clear out any cubicles for our team: We’ll manage all of your security systems from our own office space, allowing you to return to business as usual while we work in the background.
Even though we won’t be working in your building, you can trust our cybersecurity experts to handle your security with the utmost care, expertise, and consideration. We have spent years perfecting our network security services to provide the most thorough approach to digital security possible.
Instead of draining your resources on an in-house IT team, you can trust our Network Elites team members to treat your company as our own and deliver reliable, expert security support.
Why your business needs cybersecurity
If you’re unfamiliar with cyber attacks, you may not fully realize the importance of cyber security for your business. However, having the appropriate network security measures in place is essential to your business’s success, profitability, reputation, and overall well-being.
Here are a few of the primary reasons your company needs cyber security services.
Data breaches, also known as data leaks or information disclosures, are some of the most common cyber attacks that companies experience each day. In an information leak, an unauthorized user steals or exposes critical information from your company, such as customer files, passwords, email logins, or credit card numbers.
Information leaks can occur in organizations of any size, and unfortunately, these incidents tend to be expensive. According to IBM, information disclosures costs small companies with fewer than 500 employees an average of $2.98 million.
If your business is like many, a $2.98 million expense would seriously impact your profitability. Unfortunately, around 60% of small businesses that experience an information leak or other cyber attack go out of business within six months.
Hiring a reliable managed IT provider for network security services is the safest way to prevent data leaks from ever threatening your business, saving you money (and perhaps your business) in the long run.
Not only can data leaks and other cyber attacks cost your business money as you attempt to regain your private information, but they can also lead to extensive downtime. When your company experiences your next attack, you can expect to spend at least eight hours recovering from the threat.
During this time, your employees will not be able to complete essential tasks. Even worse, if you own a manufacturing company, your supply chain and production may slow or even halt during this downtime, leading to even more profit loss.
Hackers typically seek to access or expose any data that is valuable to your company. Often, this data includes customer information, such as payment information, Social Security numbers, contact information, or passwords. Unfortunately, these breaches not only put your customers’ data at risk, but they can also lead to a lawsuit.
Your customers and clients trust your business to keep their information secure whenever they access your site, schedule your services, or purchase your goods. Upholding this trust by using top-level security solutions is critical to maintaining positive relationships with clients and continuing to grow your organization.
Twenty years ago, cyber attacks did not present as significant of a threat as they do today. Unfortunately, data leaks and other cyber threats become more and more common each year as hackers continue developing new technology and learning new processes to hack into business networks, servers, and other systems.
Additionally, as more small businesses transition to cloud computing and internet-based practices, they place their data at greater risk of theft. Data security was not as much of a threat for companies that used paper files with locks and keys. However, the digital nature of modern data means that with the right technology and vulnerability, hackers can obtain any data they want.
Cyber attacks will only continue becoming more rampant as time goes on. Hiring our cybersecurity experts now can ensure that your business stays on top of these current and impending threats.
