We know what it’s like to run a business. You need to market your services, generate income, pay your employees, and make a profit – not to mention, finding time to eat and sleep!
The last thing you want to worry about is how to keep your business protected from bad guys online. Luckily, you don’t have to do this alone. At 7 River Systems we have proven experience helping our customers to defend themselves against cyber security threats.
In every project we complete, we measurably reduce our customers’ risk of doing business electronically. Read on for just a few examples of the work we’ve done.
For many of our customers, we’ve set up countermeasures so that online business through a website can be conducted with minimal risk of compromise. Usually this means setting up secure certificates (so that website visitors can securely transmit payment information), patching the web server against the latest vulnerabilities, and monitoring log files for unusual activity.
Enabling Secure Access Anywhere
For a retail establishment in the health and wellness industry, we designed and installed solutions that allowed management to securely access financial and transaction data from work or at home. Not only did our security mechanisms ensure that only the right users had access to this data, but by being able to monitor it more frequently, managers were able to ensure that no fraudulent transactions occurred. Making sure we had the right technology and policies in place helped to defend against some particularly nasty Wi-Fi attacks while our clients were on the road.
Data Backups and Redundancy
For a customer in the media industry, we ensured that the risk of data loss in the event of a catastrophic incident was virtually eliminated. We worked with our customer to identify data considered critical to business operations and implemented off-site backups that could be retrieved at any time. Further, all data was encrypted while being transferred and stored so that it could never be accessed by an unauthorized third party.
For a small corporate client, we kept systems and software secure by setting up a patch management process. As software updates and fixes were released by vendors, our technicians applied them to all computers in the network, thereby ensuring that all software ran reliably and with lesser risk of being exploited.
Preventing Insider Threat
For a software development start-up we implemented a company-wide authentication system. We assigned appropriate permissions to all computer users in the company ranging from external contractors to the CEO. This ensured that each employee had access to everything they needed to do their job while also controlling access to information that our customer deemed to be sensitive. For an added layer of security, we added auditing to track the actions of users that regularly accessed sensitive information.
It doesn’t matter if you’re an enterprise corporation with hundreds of offices around the world, or if you’re one person. Either way, you need the peace of mind to be able to run your business without stressing out over those that might be trying to subvert it. That’s where 7 River Systems comes in. Drop us a line and we’ll get right to work for you.
