Small and medium sized businesses may not have to deal with the same types of threats that government, military, energy or other sectors do; if they are lucky, they will never be the target of a specific and directed attack. However, establishing a defined process to manage security is just as important to protecting the business. Errors, omissions, and insider threats are very real for all businesses. Protecting against incidents and breaches while upholding brand image and customer trust are also critical. Understanding the relative value of business information and developing a security program to protect it will ultimately help an organization meet their goals.
While SMB organizations do not have large budgets and teams of stakeholders to help protect critical business information, it is still important to develop and maintain a security program. Based on our experience and expertise in helping small, medium and large sized companies, VioPoint has developed several offerings that address foundational security program elements as well as provide measurable and incremental improvement over time. Additionally, the tools used for these offerings can be managed and delivered by our consultants, which eliminates the need to add additional resources to the organization. VioPoint uses several industry leading SaaS based tools in order to provide preventative, detective and corrective capabilities to many organizations.
