Cybersecurity Services

In today's increasingly technology-dependent world, cybersecurity defenses are essential to help protect your organization from potential risks. However, it can be challenging for an organization to stay vigilant while staying focused on core business activities.  Outsourcing your cybersecurity services is a great option to protect your business.

At Prelude Services, we offer the cybersecurity services you need to safeguard your operations.

Why Is Cybersecurity Protection Important?

Statistics demonstrate a significant increase in data breaches and hacking activity, making cybersecurity more crucial than ever. In 2021, phishing was involved in 36% of known data breaches — a 25% increase from 2020. While some hackers explicitly target organizations that maintain personal, financial or other sensitive information, all companies can benefit from cybersecurity protection and safeguarding techniques — especially when it comes to phishing.

Phishing is especially dangerous to organizations because hackers are deliberately exploiting human behavior, which is far less predictable than measuring whether a device's security software system is properly installed and up-to-date. However, after we implement phishing testing and provide organizations with education on the signs and characteristics of phishing techniques, we usually see around a 78% drop in click-throughs and an overall reduction in the risk of data breaches.

What Is a Cyberthreat?

A cyberthreat is when an outside party threatens harm to your computer network. The main categories include:

  • Cybercrime: Cybercrime is when a person or group targets a system for financial or other gains.
  • Cyberattack: A cyberattack is an attempt at or successful unauthorized entry into a system, whether through a virus, malware, phishing techniques, SQL injection or another technique.
  • Cyberterrorism: Cyberterrorism is when terrorists threaten businesses, organizations or individuals with harm or loss for ideological or political gains.

How to Protect Your Organization

There are several steps you can take to safeguard your data, including:

  • Install email and spam filters to combat phishing.
  • Actively monitor security logs for attacks and intrusions.
  • Regularly conduct vulnerability scans of your network.
  • Actively patch your servers, endpoint devices, and network equipment.
