Do you know what you and your team would do if a man-made or natural disaster struck your Tennessee, Virginia, or Florida business and cut off your data access? What about your backup and data recovery solution—is it functioning correctly to prevent data loss? The scary truth is that most small to medium-size business (SMB) owners don’t have solid answers to these questions. But you don’t have to skip over protecting your critical data any longer. Tech Eagles is here to reduce your risk with industry-leading—and affordable—data protection services!
There is a long list of reasons why your business should be concerned about protecting your valuable data at all costs. After all, your data may be your most priceless—and most vulnerable—asset. But let’s answer this question with three big risks that small to midsize business leaders often don’t think about, but that should be keeping you up at night with regard to your data security:
If your customer and vendor details are stolen in a data breach, those who have trusted you with their business may no longer see you as trustworthy. Even if you recover your data, your brand image might be ruined.
Mishandling Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is beginning to come with expensive fines and the possibility of lawsuits due to changing data privacy laws in many states.
These days, hackers and cybercriminals have one thing in mind when targeting businesses like yours: money. Ransomware is just one trick of the trade they might use against you—and most small to midsize businesses can’t afford to pay.
Your engagement in this process is critical for both you and I to have the information we need to uncover and prioritize any security concerns but we will keep your time investment minimal: one hour for the initial meeting and one to two hours in the final meeting to go over our Report of Findings.
A business continuity plan (BCP), in short, is documentation of data recovery strategies and tactics that help you get back to business after a disaster. When you work with an experienced IT managed service provider like Tech Eagles for data protection, we will help you develop this type of plan as a “just in case” tool.
With properly managed data backups, your business continuity plan may never need to be put into action, but ensuring that you’re ready to handle a disaster is a big part of what we do. Your business’s long-term safety and success are of utmost importance to us.
Yes. Most data breaches in businesses of all sizes are caused by well-meaning employees who “didn’t know better” and fell for social engineering or other phishing attacks that led to installing malware, ransomware, or spyware that hackers use to steal your data.
