Let’s talk about protecting your business from online criminals. Let’s talk about cyber security!
Cyber crime is a very real and growing threat to businesses everywhere, no matter what size your operation is.
“Small and mid-sized businesses are hit by 62 percent of all cyber-attacks, about 4,000 per day, according to IBM. Cybercriminals target small businesses because they are an easy, soft target to penetrate.” That’s a quote from the Denver Post in a piece entitled “60% of small companies that suffer a cyber attack are out of business within six months“.
One of the biggest sources of criminal entry into your business is through unpatched software. Out of date software.
So it’s vital to update all the software you’re using. And keep it updated.
Trouble is… you’re busy.
And updating your apps is a bit of a nuisance… which is why it’s so easy to put it off.
Happily there is a helpful piece of cyber security software from a Danish company I discovered recently, Heimdal Security. I started with their free version, and was pleased with it so I went Pro. Compared to the cost of having to deal with cyber crime, the price tag is tiny.
What Heimdal does is… it updates your vulnerable software. Silently and invisibly. Hands-off, in other words. It’s eliminating most of the security risks that arise when you’re running older versions of software and it’s doing it without your involvement.
This is a pro-active approach, unlike your anti-virus which is reactive.
Their pitch makes good sense to me, so it’s installed on both of my computers. Click on the “Why Heimdal” link at the top of their home page and I think you’ll be as impressed as I am with them and their product.
