Changing offices is often a sign of success for a business. At the same time, an office move is also one of the complicated and stressful business events you will ever experience.  However, there is no more crucial task than a seamless IT transition from the old office to the new.  It’s an inconvenience if you don’t get all the office furniture set up in time.  But failing to get your internet service set up in time is a potential work-stopper.  Few businesses can function properly without access to email and the internet.

The Ponemon Institute released the 14th edition of its annual "Cost of a Data Breach Report" earlier this month. As you might expect, the numbers do not exactly inspire encouragement. According to the report, the average 2019 data breach cost $3.92 million, an increase of 1.3 percent over 2018. With cyberattacks growing both in volume and devastation, now is not the time to bury your head in the sand.

Cyber Breaches and Data Loss – August 2019

By |2019-08-14T09:31:39-07:00August 14th, 2019|Cyber Security, Industry News, IT Support & Managed IT Services|Comments Off on Cyber Breaches and Data Loss – August 2019

Despite the prevalence of malicious cyber breaches, many organizations still fail to prioritize information security. Roughly 67 percent of SMBs experienced a cyberattack last year, but 60 percent of SMBs do not have a cyberattack prevention plan in place. Meanwhile, only 9 percent of SMBs rank cyber security as a top priority, while 18 percent rate it as their lowest priority. At Capital Network Solutions, we try to close this dangerous knowledge gap by collecting and compiling news stories about cyber breaches. In this week's roundup, we look at attacks on the LAPD, the FDNY, and the largest property and casualty insurer in the country.

Running your own in-house IT support team can be prohibitively expensive for SMBs. However, managed services providers (MSPs) are lightening the IT budget burden with a more cost-effective approach to managing your IT needs. Outsourcing your IT support to an MSP like Capital Network Solutions saves you needing to pay full-time salaries to in-house IT staff, and can connect you with industry-leading IT expertise for a fraction of the cost of employing an experienced CTO.
