90% Of Successful Network Breaches Are Caused By User Error

Because Your Data is Only as Safe as Your Weakest Link

Why Is Cyber Security So Important?

Data breaches occur every day and a majority of them happen to small to medium size businesses. Employees need to be trained on how to protect sensitive company data. Training leads to fewer PC builds, reduced IT expenses and less employee downtime. The Miller Group can help train your employees in an interesting and engaging way.

Protect Your Network Like You Protect Your Home

Many people go to great lengths to keep robbers and intruders out of their homes. With today's technology, there are many ways we can gain peace of mind when we leave the house. With cybercrimes becoming more of a threat to small and medium-sized businesses, shouldn't business owners go to those same lengths to keep their businesses secure?

Layers of IT Security House for best IT Security Practices

Monitoring and Patching
A security camera keeps an eye on your property. If you check your security camera and notice that a stranger is able to enter your backyard, you might add another lock to your fence gate. The Miller Group can act as your home security camera. We will monitor your computers and servers. We will also roll out patches and updates to your devices as soon as they are available.

Data Backup & Recovery
The fire system in your home is able to detect smoke and activate the sprinkler system to prevent any further damage. A data backup and recovery plan is similar to a home fire system because it can help rescue lost data. This is a necessity for natural disasters or data breaches.

Web Defense
A secure front door can keep intruders out. Just like there are criminals in the real world, there are criminals online. It's important to keep your infrastructure safe and protected from cybercriminals. Anti-Virus, Anti-Malware, DNS Filtering, and more help keep unwanted visitors out.

IT Audit
Police Officers and Community Night Watchers patrol neighborhoods looking for any possible threats to homeowners. If your front door is wide open, they might investigate or inform the homeowners. An IT audit will patrol your infrastructure and find any vulnerable spots in your security practices.

Spam & Phishing Prevention
The only way to get into a locked door is with a key. If your home key was given out to criminals, they could easily find a way into your home. Spam & phishing prevention keeps cybercriminals out of your inbox so that you don't accidentally click on a malicious link.

Security Policies & Training
Reminding your family members to lock the door is a job that every homeowner has. It's important to have constant reminders for the best IT security practices at your business too. Employee security training can help save your business from a data breach.

Encryption
Electronic door locks need a code to unlock. If only your family knows the code, then your home is safe. Encryption is similar. It can put your sensitive data into an unreadable code. Only the ones who have the code key can read the data.

Firewall
Many homeowners set up alarm systems for when they are out of the house and want to keep unwanted guests out too. A firewall will do that for your network as well. Firewalls can block traffic to and from your network based on location, services (specifics types of traffic) and some even can inspect the traffic looking for anomalies.
