I am having conversations with my clients and prospects daily about Cyber Security. As an technologist it is important to be aware of the latest threats. As a business owner it is not. There is already so much you need to worry about. Worrying about something that is so abstract as hacking or ransomware seems trivial.
I realize knowing what I know and the different ways things can go wrong, the world is a much scarier place. You see a hacker only needs to get it right once to succeed. But, as my clients Managed CIO I need to get it right every time.
The conversations I have with prospects include;
– Why it is important not to be running an outdated operating system.
– Why you need an endpoint protection on your computer. That does more than just look for viruses
-Why its still important to make sure your computers are patched
– Why you need to have a firewall in front of your modem.
-Why you need to change your passwords at least every 45 days or turn on 2 factor authentication
And the list goes on. When I use the phrase “Your Data” it is so abstract no one understands what that means. So recently I read an article which opened my eyes up so I wanted to share some statistics that I discovered. I think by monetizing what “Your Data” means. It will makes it easier to understand why Cyber Criminals do what they do.
On the Dark Web(if you don’t know what the dark web is you can see my video) cyber criminals will sell the data they steal
Email Addresses:
Email addresses can be bought from $1 to $15 per email address. You might ask why? Those stolen email addresses can then be used to spam and phish people you know. Which will further allow them to exploit and gain more data
Company Login Credentials:
Company login credentials can be bought for $30 per credential. This one should be obvious. The quicker they can gain access to your corporate data. The faster they can get financial records, social security numbers, names and addresses.
Prescription Records:
$35 for prescription records. Selling drugs on the dark web is huge. So if they can get everything they need to get legal prescriptions and sell them illegally.

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!

Underdog makes you feel that you are his first concern if you have a Server down or you have a small printing question.  We have been with Carmine for 16 years and have only received quality service.

12 years in business and I have been there and done that with other IT / Computer biz, and finally found one that listens, asks questions, and comes up with a plan.

If you are having issues or just want to see if there are options for and avenues of improvement for your computer / networking needs, checkout Underdog Computer and Network Support LLC.

There are some others that are good, but I cannot express the difference enough – they actually get it! Every business IS different with different needs and processes, and they take the time to find what is best for you instead of what they think is best for you!

Thank you, Carmine J. Corridore, for allowing me to have a stress free vacation this year! I look forward to working with you in the near future for some serious upgrades!
