Managed Services: Why SMBs Should Explore Managed IT

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 from paying full-time salaries to in-house IT staff. It can also connect you with industry-leading IT consulting expertise for a fraction of the cost of employing a CTO.

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.
