“Oh no! Who left the door unlocked?”
You get a sick feeling in the stomach if you hear that question while entering your house. That sick feeling is compounded by a racing heart and sweaty palms if you hear that question at work after a network security breach. If you want to keep your belongings safe at home and your data safe at work, you can’t take security for granted.
Your staff relies on a smoothly running network to do their jobs. They take the security of that network for granted, but they shouldn’t. It takes a proactive approach of identifying and closing potential security gaps to keep your network and data safe from hackers, viruses, human error, and unforeseen events.
At DelCor, we’re specialists in mitigating the risks your network will encounter and maximizing its security. Our consultants maintain industry-standard certifications and are immersed in the nonprofit world. They have command of the best practices needed to ensure your network’s security.
We provide security assessments for our clients as an independent review or as a beginning step when enrolling in our Partner Program or Network Foundation Suite. We evaluate the strength of several critical network components:
- Perimeter Security Tools: When your firewalls, anti-virus software, anti-spam software, and patches are up to date, your first line of defense is ready to fend off trouble from the outside. Each of these defenses plugs critical holes that can otherwise be exploited, leaving your organization completely exposed.
- Monitoring Systems: When something goes wrong, how quickly are you notified and able to act? Your monitoring systems should alert you when there are intrusions or a change in status of your Internet connectivity, critical systems, backups, internal network, and – most importantly – the physical environment that houses the system.
- Backup Systems: Backup tapes are so 20 years ago. If you’re still dependent upon unsecured physical backup systems, we need to talk. Is your organization’s data backed up correctly and regularly, and stored safely? What if an accident, like a fire, occurred at your office, would your data be destroyed or do you have a copy securely stored and maintained off site?
- Support Systems: Even if every safeguard is working, problems can still occur. Your organization must have effective support systems in place to accurately diagnose problems and act on them immediately.
After a thorough evaluation, our consultants will identify the steps needed to improve the security of your network and data, including areas of concern to address as your organization grows.
