This month of October now marks the 18th year of cybersecurity awareness month. This month was started in October 2004 by the National Cyber Security Alliance & the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Cybersecurity awareness month is a time where awareness is raised to people everywhere about the importance of cybersecurity and how it can protect you and your business from outside threats. 

In today’s world, it’s no longer physical threats that pose the biggest threats to you, but rather attacks that come online and often can’t be seen before it’s too late. Unlike physical attacks that can leave a trail of footprints, an online attack can often be covered up to make sure that no one ever finds out who did it. CPT of South Florida wants to help raise awareness and give you some details on why it is so important to make sure you and your business are secure from such attacks ever happening. 

Information Is Key

No matter what type of work or information your business is working on, it has value. Anything that you or your employees work on has a value attached to it, whether it is big or small. Someone breaching your network and stealing that information is not only a serious crime but can be a cumbersome headache for you and your company.

This information can be sold to the competition or used against you in order for the hacker to make some form of financial gain. This will often result in having to start back at square one of the whole process. 

CPT of South Florida wants to help prevent these types of cyber-related crimes from ever happening. Our cyber team is always staying up to date with the largest and most volatile types of cyberattacks so we can keep our premium defense system alert on what to look for.

We offer different monthly plans that will best match your business needs. We also offer single consultations that you can request whenever you feel they are needed. Our cybersecurity solutions are the most crucial IT service that we provide. You can never be too safe in today’s online world.

Make Sure Your Software Is Safe

Another aspect that many businesses can often overlook when it comes to cybersecurity is the use of different types of software used inside the business. This mostly applies to the use of open-source software in the workplace.

While open-source software is usually fine and safe to use on personal devices, using these types of software in a workplace and place a large target on your back. Open-source software allows anyone to get into the code and see what makes the software work. Having this type of vulnerability in the workplace can make it easy for hackers to dive in and take anything they please.

CPT of South Florida offers complete workplace overhauls and can make sure your entire office, including the software, is safe and secure. While it is nice to be free to use whatever software you like, it’s in the best interest of the company that everyone uses a safe and secure piece of software to make sure no one and breaks in and takes what they want. 

Keep Yourself Safe

This cybersecurity awareness month, do yourself a favor and make sure you’re safe. It can often be a confusing task, that’s why CPT of South Florida is here to help protect you and make sure you’re secure. If you’re interested in upgrading your cybersecurity, visit our contact page!

Our business switched from one large VOIP provider to GoToConnect recommended by CPT of South Florida. Although we had a significant pricing decrease, the biggest benefits were in a much more user friendly and powerful phone system.

CPT has been a great partner for many years. We can always depend on their expertise and recommendations. They have solved complicated network issues with top notch techs. They also recommended and guided us through the installation of the logmein/Jive phone system that turned out to be a great decision and CPT was a big part of the projects success..
