Stop thinking that just because you are a small business that nobody is interested in hacking you. There are plenty of reasons for hackers to target your small business. We no longer live in an era when only the banks and large enterprises were the targets. Hacking, data theft, and cybercrime have become big business around the world, and small businesses are ideal targets. So, be warned!
Unless you work with an MSP and allow them to do their job, your small business is likely less guarded than many of your larger enterprise colleagues. There are many threats targeting businesses today; these threats require a comprehensive defense. Defending against even the more common cyber threats requires knowledge, people, and tools; most small businesses have no idea where to start.
Compliance is a daily reality for these entities, requiring them to have compliance officers, perform internal compliance testing, and generate external compliance reports. Most small businesses have difficulty navigating simple things like automating payroll, payroll taxes, and 401k programs. The recent passage of numerous data privacy and security laws throughout the world has created a new reality for small business: data privacy compliance. Ignorance is no excuse in the eyes of the law. This is especially true concerning data privacy regulation. The right MSP partner can help you navigate these laws and develop a plan to make you safe and compliant
Cyber Security Threat Prevention is not a Set I.T. and Forget I.T. thing. It is an ongoing and discipline process!
Threat Protection is more than just protecting against Viruses
Phishing is any type of attempt to bait a user into performing an action such as opening an attachment in email, clicking on a link, or clicking on an advertisement. It’s usually more individual and personalized and sent by someone who wants information from you such as your social security number or credit card information or to install malware on your device.
Cyber Criminals use social engineering to gaining access to buildings, systems or data by exploiting human psychology, rather than by breaking in or using technical hacking techniques. Cyber Criminal might use social engineering to call an employee and pose as an IT support person, trying to trick the employee into divulging his password.
Spear Phishing is a message may come from what appears to be a trusted source; however, it is more likely that the sender will look like a colleague in your company or a vendor. The attacks are not from“random” hackers, but more likely from organized groups or individuals out for financial gain, trade secrets, or even military information. Often times, it may seem to be from someone at an executive level asking the recipient to perform some task such as a wire transfer or to send W-2 information as happened recently to some in companies
There are different types of domain spoofing. An example of domain spoofing is you get an email from what looks to be a legitimate company with a link to their website however the link takes you to a different website that looks similar to the legitimate.
Cyber Crimes are on the rise. You do everything correctly in business but because you didn’t know you were at a security risk! You are forced to close your doors! Don’t let this happen to you

We found it very easy to work with Underdog. He gave a very clear and professional quote, he has been promptly responsive in all communications, and the network is working great. I feel very good about using his company for any future IT needs for our business.

Barton Heights had a very successful computer upgrade due to Underdog. I met with him 2-3 months before the project and he gave us an estimate of the entire upgrade process involving 31 computers and a server. He advised us and placed the order. He also worked with us and ended up revising the estimate twice to completely satisfy our computer upgrade needs. He added true value to his service as he was willing to perform the upgrade in the evening when we were closed to minimize our down time as we are a paperless business and rely 100% on our computers. Carmine stepped up and took care of those problems as well, even though that was not his responsibility. He always responds quickly to any issue that occurs. I would highly recommend him to anyone!
