What does your company need to do to stay ahead of cyber-attacks in Lancaster County?
Every day, cyber criminals gain access to business networks, from which they take confidential information, steal money, and hold the network hostage for a large ransom payment. Even small & mid-sized businesses in Lancaster are not immune to cybersecurity threats.
Learn what the team at BIG is doing to help businesses like yours protect their networks, data, and systems from attack.
Is Your Network – And Team – Ready for a Cyber Attack?
The biggest threat to a business’ network is its employees. Cyber criminals have become more sophisticated, patient, and thorough in their efforts to attack businesses of all sizes and types. The most common cyberattacks are multi-layered social engineering techniques involving detailed research into your company, leadership, and employees. Hackers will seek to learn your behavior and communication style – in hopes of leveraging this to gain access to your network.
The Real Cost of Cyber Attacks
Cyber attacks can have major negative effects on a business. More than 60% of companies go out of business within six months of a cyber attack.
Cyber attacks and fraud are sensitive issues; when it comes out to the public, it generates a wave of negative publicity in local and industry circles. The long-term effects of this fallout can erode confidence in your brand by customers, vendors, and partners.
During a network compromise, the entire system must be quarantined until the threat is neutralized, malicious code is removed, and the software is patched. Will your company be able to run without access to your network & software? If you are a manufacturer running 24/7/365, can you afford to be shut down for weeks?
Sometimes hackers will directly steal money from your accounts or use ransomware to demand a payment in exchange for returning your data to you. In addition, there are other ways you can lose money directly from a cyber attack. These include mounting legal fees, loss of income during downtime, and fines from non-compliance.

If your network has already been compromised, you will need help restoring your network operations. We will quarantine affected systems, try to determine the source of the compromise, and provide a solution for the network and all affected machines.
For existing networks, we provide vulnerability scans that check the system for configuration errors and common vulnerabilities. This report gives business leaders and IT heads a benchmark to work from as they seek to improve security.
Secure Network Design
Our team of network engineers can design a system that actively protects your machines and users from threats. Cloud-managed IT infrastructure and firewalls by Cisco Meraki provide real-time updates against emerging threats – before they can risk your company’s data.
BIG’s Network Operations Center (NOC) provides 24/7/365 monitoring of your system for anomalies, active probing, dark web monitoring, and new & emerging vulnerabilities and threats. Staffed by BIG employees, our NOC will be the first to spot unusual activity, so you can quickly identify the source and legitimacy of the threat.
If you are in a regulated industry – like healthcare or finance – you either view compliance regulations as a hassle or as part of your business operations. We are experienced in most major and industry-specific compliance regulations – including HIPAA & PCI – and we know how to integrate these into your overall data protection strategy through Compliance as a Service.
We provide training capabilities for team members and end users on security awareness and best practices on protecting yourself and the company from attacks. At BIG University, our annual cybersecurity conference, business leaders and IT professionals can learn about the latest threats facing Central PA businesses.
One of the best ways to test your network’s vulnerabilities and your company’s security practices is with penetration testing. Our certified ethical hackers simulate a cyber-attack to safely compromise servers, endpoints, applications, and devices.
BIG’s security assessment evaluates your systems, network, and overall security practices to detect security weaknesses, analyze the risks, and propose a roadmap of action items to work towards remediating issues.
