Why hire an MSP?

Why Managed IT Services?

Prevent Attacks That Can Disrupt or Disable Your Business

Cyber-attacks are a constant threat – a fact of life; a harsh reality of doing business in 2019. And when they happen, there is a price to pay.

  • Total financial impact of ransomware attacks is over $5 billion a year
  • Half of all small businesses have been victims
  • 71% of attacks hit businesses with under 100 employees
  • The average cost of a breach across ALL companies is $3.8 million.
  • Average data breach costs a small business over $20,000
  • A single compromised record is valued at $148
  • 60% of small businesses that have been breaches close within six months

 

But the cost to company reputation (lost customers, lost trust) is immeasurable. And what happens if you are attacked and your critical systems go down? How long can you afford to have your business disrupted?

 

It’s not a question of IF you’ll be threatened…but WHEN. Once you’re threatened, are you protected?

Prevent Catastrophic Data Breaches

According to the Online Trust Alliance (OTA), 93% of all breaches could have been prevented in the past year.

And when these attacks happen, you will be asked: “What did you do to minimize the impact of the attack on your business and on your customers?”

How will you reply when you are asked what steps you took to minimize the impact of breaches? Will your answer be that you did nothing? Did you incorporate standards and best practices for cybersecurity? Do you really know WHAT you did? Did you take the right steps to avoid those breaches?

Outsourcing IT: Is a Managed Services Provider (MSP) right for you?

Not all businesses need an MSP for IT. Here’s a quick checklist to see if it might be right for yours.

 

  • Do you conduct business online (e-commerce)?
  • Do you handle customer data – transaction data, personally identifiable information (PII)?
  • Do your business processes depend on network and application availability (i.e. internal/external communications, scheduling, production, delivery, etc.)?
  • Do you have Intellectual Property (IP) — patents, trade secrets, trademarks, and copyrights — to protect?
  • Is your industry governed by federal or state laws and regulations that impact data privacy?

 

If you answered yes to one or more, or are unsure about any, contact Linked MSP to find out if outsourcing is right for you.
