Cyber Protection Solutions for SMBs
As our businesses become even more reliant on technology and cloud services, the frequency and sophistication of cyber attacks continue to accelerate. Your Cyber Protection
Cyber Protection Needs
We need our businesses — and our people — to be aware, protected, and able to recover.
At Cumulus Global, our CPR model maps the necessary components of cyber security into three areas.
- Communicate & Educate
- Ensure you team understands the risk, educate them so they can avoid falling prey, create a culture of security and data privacy.
- Protect & Prevent
- Leverage advanced and “next gen” technologies to prevent attacks and to protect your networks, systems, data, and people from attacks.
- Recover & Respond
- No system is perfect; make sure you can recover your data and systems, return to normal operations, and respond to the technical, legal, and communication challenges.
Successful Cyber Protection relies on your policies and procedures, technologies, and people working in sync. Across more than a dozen focus areas, you need to balance the level or protection you need with the costs and with the risks of not doing enough. You need to balance external requirements, such as government and industry regulations, with internal priorities.
