Each of us has something of value to cyber criminals.  That information is our personally identifiable information (PII).  With this information, a cyber thief can steal your identity, access financial information, or even steal money from your financial accounts.  Learning about the right steps to protect your personal information is a crucial first step to achieving good individual cybersecurity hygiene.  You would not remove all your door locks from you home’s external doors, and the same should be true for your individual cybersecurity practices.  Don’t leave your data exposed for anyone to find.  Often times cyber criminals can maintain a presence in a network for several months to years without being detected.  Cyber Strike Solutions provides the expertise in an array of cybersecurity services.

Small businesses experience challenges that can be significantly more difficult than that of larger businesses.  Limited resources and tight budgets can cause a small to medium sized business to focus on only their “business”.  Unfortunately, cyber criminals are aware of the cybersecurity gap that exists for many small and medium businesses and as a result, many cyber criminals target these businesses.  

There are different frameworks available to help implement cybersecurity at a level that meets your goals.  Bureau, B (2017) explained that the biggest challenge for small businesses is the lack of resources and the lack of expertise.  Understanding practical, affordable, and sustainable methods of protecting your organization’s sensitive information is key to preventing a cyber criminal from disrupting or disabling your business.  Cyber Strike Solutions can help with designing affordable, layered, and manageable security architectures, as well as provide the necessary expertise that may be missing within your organization.

HIPAA is one of the key regulatory drivers for securing personal health information (PHI).  As part of the HIPAA law, entities such as hospitals, doctor’s offices, chiropractors, dentists, etc. are required to conduct a periodic risk assessment.  Part of this risk assessment should include the use of the security risk assessment tool to help guide the execution of the assessment and ensure all requirements are addressed.  

Understanding these risks and the likelihood and impact of a potential vulnerability can be difficult to quantify.  Cyber Strike Solutions possesses the skillset to execute this risk assessment in a timely and thorough manner and can produce the necessary artifacts to demonstrate compliance to the HIPAA regulation.  We also have years of experience in quantifying the likelihood and impact of threats/vulnerabilities and can help develop and execute mitigation plans.
