The Human Firewall
As a managed service provider, Geeforce Technologies offers our clients access to some of the best products available when it comes to online security. We also offer employee education, which we believe is of even more importance than the software you use and the safeguarding measures you take online.
Despite having more than enough online safety measures, screening software and managed services in place, one unfortunate business managed to lose 89 thousand pounds in just under 2 hours.
A well meaning member of staff received an email from her ‘boss’ asking her to transfer the funds to a new account as soon as possible.
Seeing no reason to doubt the request, the funds were sent immediately to an account that had nothing to do with the boss or indeed the business. The phishing email had succeeded and the business were the best part of 100K lighter than they were at the start of the day.
The alarm bells only started ringing when the boss asked the question ‘what money?’ as he arrived back at the office to be told the money had been transferred as he had requested.
At Geeforce Technologies we believe that the piece of kit between the screen and the chair is the most valuable asset in cyber security. Don’t neglect to educate or you could end up asking ‘what money?’ yourself.
It has never been more important to safeguard yourself and your business from cyberattacks.
Unfortunately, cyberattacks of different varieties are becoming increasingly more common in this digital age, as data and private information are sought by criminals for a variety of reasons.
Have you lost data or had your personal or business data compromised?
The prevalence of these attacks can cost big businesses millions of pounds and bring small businesses to their knees.
We’ve seen it happen.
60 percent of companies that lose their date close down with six months of the disaster and a staggering 72 percent of businesses that suffer major data loss disappear within 24 months.
Don’t let that happen to you.
So what can you do to protect yourself?
The answer to that question is to speak to Geeforce Technologies.
We offer tools to screen emails, and we search the internet underworld for passwords relating to your business email addresses, thus keeping you protected from all manner of threats.
Whether you’ve fallen victim to a phishing scam, or your password has been compromised, we have both the expertise and the tools to get to the root of the problem.
Don’t leave your company open to internet scams. Contact Geeforce today.
