Proper Awareness for Employees

Most of the cyber activities happen because of the unawareness of employees to the kind of tools and strategies used by cyber criminals these days. Now in order to preserve your reputation and data you need to educate your employees about the ways and harms that cyber-theft can bring to your business. Rapid IT Support can arrange seminars and workshops for your employees in which we provide necessary cybersecurity awareness. We also provide your employees with short and descriptive video content that will help them in understanding cyber-attacks and threats in a better way. Then we will take some assessments which will ensure that all the employees are properly educated about cybersecurity and that they have the potential to tackle cyber threats or at the least to pinpoint if there is any unusual cyber activity so that we can work in accordance and take some necessary actions.


Multi-Factor Authentication

The usual password selection techniques are not working anymore and now the data and log-in information is more vulnerable than ever. Cybercriminals are getting advanced technologies and creating more sophisticated attacks. A Multi-Factor Authentication will provide layered protection to your passwords. Especially small business IT Support requires this kind of practice as a single cyber-attack can destroy their whole business. In multi-factor authentication the passwords will be linked with more than one protection method such as the employees will be asked to answer one or more questions about their personal life and these questions will be selected randomly and with care to ensure maximum protection. By these practices, if the cybercriminals get access to your passwords then they will be unable to log in because of this two or more factor authentication system.

Managed Email & Antivirus

With the advanced technology, viruses are also becoming advanced that can enter your system without you knowing and can cause harm to your precious data and information. The traditional antivirus software is not enough to stop these advanced viruses and you will have to keep an experienced and professional team of IT technicians at your workplace all the time to ensure the security of your IT systems. Now the cybercriminals use spam or viruses to attack your systems via email. For example by gaining access to your email they can convince your employees to provide important financial or personal data information and cause a financial or reputational loss. So you need to implement a proper email security system for the management of your email. This Managed IT practice will filter the emails before arriving in your inbox, this will also allow you to review the email before opening it to check if it is a fraudulent or spam email.
