It’s no secret that cybercrime is on the rise and that businesses of all sizes are being targeted, phished, scammed, and breached.
And you’ve almost certainly heard about the most recent trend in malicious hacker activity: targeting IT managed services providers. You may have seen news reports about large IT companies like Cognizant or smaller firms like Involta whose cybersecurity practices weren’t up to par, resulting in damages to their clients’ businesses.
In the case of Involta, their client reported that access was gained to one of Boardman’s internal email accounts and used to send phony invoices for payments to fake accounts, totaling over $1.7M in just 9 days.
This is precisely why it’s so important for your IT provider to take their own internal security seriously. And that’s also why I stepped in to write this post for Heiden Technologies, an IT provider who has taken the time and initiative in securing their business and their clients through the MSP Overwatch™ program.
Heiden Technologies recently completed their TISC-2020 certification process, during which the cybersecurity experts at MSP Overwatch™ conducted a third-party audit of their information security solutions and practices.
Having passed these audits, Heiden now has verification and tons of evidence showing that their MSP’s security practices are among the most robust and trustworthy in the nation.
If you’re a Heiden Technologies client, you’ve chosen to work with an IT provider who is committed to keeping you and your data safe.
