IT Managed Services and
Cyber Threat Intelligence

Bad guys with masks on and guns in their hands don't walk in and rob banks these days - they sit behind computers with a mouse in their hand and rob them using computers.

And life can become a living hell for those who are victims of today's cyber crimes.

The criminals of a bank or a local business... your business... can be a current employee - a former employee - an employee's friend - or someone you've never met or heard of that is sitting alone in a room thousands of miles away.

To them - you mean nothing... your life means nothing.

You're a target - and a source of money.

They may literally be after your money.

But they may be after some sort of gain using something a bit more indirect.

We've known people in our lives that didn't want to necessarily rob another person - they just wanted to hurt someone for the sake of hurting them.

I remember a night in high school that I went out with some friends and they had invited a guy named Robert.

After a couple of hours - and a couple of beers - he wanted to cruise around town.

After a few minutes of driving around - he yelled for us to stop the car.

He got out and walked up to a guy and just started a fight - no reason - no provocation - he just wanted to cause trouble..

He was just a trouble maker.

A couple of years later - he ended up in prison... for murder!

Anyway - there are no goods out there like Robert who just want to cause you trouble.

Cyber Criminals seek to:

- Expose information about you, your family or your business
- Alter business information files that could really put you in a bad place
- Disable your ability to make sales or collect payments
- Destroy your computers or other devices
- Steal your money
- Gain access to your email accounts
- and on and on.

They seek disruption... deception... theft of intellectual property... sabotage... damage to your data... and just plain old disruption of your business - even if they don't gain a thing from you.

So - What Is Threat Intelligence When It Comes To IT Managed Services and Cyber Security Services?

Basically, it is having a knowledge and understanding about the threats that are rampant whenever you or your employees are online.

And remember - you or your employees don't have to be working.

You could simply be taking a moment to open your personal email - or shopping - or chatting on a social media account.

But - if you're on a device that is ALSO connected to your business in any way - the possibility of a data breach and compromise exists!

So, having the knowledge of the threats that exist enables you to make an informed decision of what kind of cyber defense you need to have in place and what to do when the persistent and manipulative actions of an attacked finds a way to get through.

It's having a software security defense that keeps the attacks from happening in the first place by being prepared and constructing defenses and security that is based on up-to-date vulnerability information.

But if the attackers do get through a vulnerability - your defense software MUST be able to recognize that something is amiss through active detection - and respond accordingly.

You're protection must go into an active defense mode and alert you of a compromised situation and at the same time begin blocking and responding to the moves that the attacker is making.

It's like a Cyber SWAT team jumping into action - or the fire department responding to an alert of a fire.

Remember - the earlier an online intrusion attack is detected - the less damage to your business data will incur.

That's why you may need the help and professionalism we have at Las Vegas IT Network Cyber Security Computer Services.

It's one thing for software to process raw data - but a solid online defense strategy also needs the human intuitive side of interpreting the online signs of a data breach that may be happening in a way that artificial intelligence may miss.

You need threat intelligence to know what to look for - how to identify a threat - and then how to respond for static prevention of access - or dynamic response if the attacker get's through your defense.
