In just a few years technology has had a profound impact on families. It has changed how we interact with each other, how we spend our time, and who we look to for happiness and a sense of connection. Technology has truly stressed our relationships — from our relationships with our spouse to our relationship with our children and parents.
If you are feeling challenged, you are not alone and you are not to blame. The technology giants of today employ psychologists and big-data algorithms specifically to create highly addictive services. We can help you fight back.
Creating a structured and supportive environment is no simple task however. It is certainly not as simple as blocking a few websites or turning off the internet at bedtime. Teenagers and young adults, in particular, are tech savvy (at least compared to the typical parent). With a simple Google search they quickly find ways around most restrictions. We are an IT company with a focus on behaviour. We can give you the support you need. We will take care of the details with features specifically designed for busy, modern homes so you focus on your relationship with your family, their mental and physical health, and their growth and learning.
Reach out to us and learn how we have been helping other families overcome these challenges.
If you are an executive, a public figure, a high-net-worth individual, or if you run a home-based business, you may not consider yourself a target of cyberattacks, and you may be right, but probably not. As you are reading this, automated computer systems are scanning your phone and home network looking for security vulnerabilities every 2 to 5 seconds. In fact these bots do this for all networks, ours included. We are all targets. The actual target is banking information, investment portfolios, confidential information, identities, crypto wallets, and even electricity.
Most of us think of home as a safe place. We can manage our physical security by living in a good neighbourhood and locking our doors. Cybersecurity is very different. Our home network and cellular devices are all connected all the time to the whole world, which means that anyone, anywhere can reach out and attempt to connect to them. Our homes can become very dangerous environments thanks to the internet.
If you are concerned about the environment in which your sensitive work, data, and personal devices live each and every day, consider reaching out to us. We can help you understand your IT environment and if needed, put safeguards in place from the internet and even from the other devices in the home. We take care of the technical details so you can focus on your business.
The internet has unfortunately become like the old Wild West, except instead of gun fights and day time bank robberies, criminal activity takes place silently and out of sight. No news is not necessarily good news, and free or near-free tools like antivirus software are not adequate protection.
Is it preposterous to consider the possibility of your network leaking customers' or suppliers' confidential information, or even your own business's intellectual property, banking information, investment portfolio, business plan, etc.? If not, consider reaching out to us.
We can help you secure your business. We take care of the technical details so you can focus on your core business.
Many of the cybersecurity risks and challenges faced by industrial facilities and large enterprises are shared by most businesses. If you are new to cybersecurity or our website, we encourage you to read our "Businesses" section above first, and then continue here. Of course, industrial facilities and large enterprises deal with additional important complexities that are worth exploring:
While most cyberattacks exploit device and network vulnerabilities and do so indiscriminately, large companies are readily targeted. For these businesses, a disruption to their operation can be catastrophic, something that attackers hope is worth the price of a large ransom. Of course attackers also look to exploit any confidential data that they can gather, to offer to competitors, game the stock market, launch attacks on connected businesses, vendors, customers,... and much more.
For many businesses, their operation, efficiency, security, or even viability is now intertwined with their use of connected devices, such as quality inspection equipment, robotic systems, access control systems, CCTV systems, and even simple smart temperature and humidity sensors. Unfortunately, instead of cybersecurity, many of these systems are designed for speed-to-market and price. Consequently, they are some of the easiest targets for hacking, and perfect beachheads for attacks on a facility's entire network. For example, in 2017 a high-profile casino was hacked through a weakness in a temperature sensor in a fish tank in the lobby.
From an attacker's perspective, the game of cybersecurity is akin to finding weak links in a physical chain. Depending on the target, it could be easier for an attacker to find weaknesses in the target's trusted vendors and suppliers. In 2014, the big retail chain, Target, was hacked through their heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems supplier. In 2018, the US utility networks are reported to have been breached by Russian hackers through trusted vendors. Do you know if your suppliers are cyber secure? Do you have systems in place for limiting and monitoring their access to various areas of your network?
Given what is at stake it is not irrational to err on the side of caution. We can help you understand your security exposure, and give you the capabilities you need to protect your infrastructure from outside attackers, trusted vendors and suppliers, and even bad actors from within your organization. We take care of the technical details so you can focus on your production.
Times have evolved and so have the battle fronts. Today's battles are over information and access to control. The new attacks are also discreet, under-the-radar, multi-pronged, computer driven, and very effective. If you are new to cybersecurity or our website, we encourage you to read our "Businesses" and "Industrial Facilities & Large Enterprises" sections above first, and then continue here.
In addition to the challenges of any large enterprise, governments are targets of other countries that are investing heavily in maximizing their espionage and attack capabilities. But, who can countries looking to invest in defense turn to? In this new age, which country do you trust? Whose technology do you trust to incorporate in your infrastructure?
We are an all-Canadian cybersecurity company with a fully made-in-Canada product. See for yourselves if we are worthy of your trust.
