As an authority in the IT space, BlackCSI has put a stop to this nonsense with its innovative new "dual claim coverage" - whereby both the technology provider and client are covered directly by techrug if a breach occurs.

Leading Managed Technology Services Provider Helps Local Businesses Plan Ahead for Any Situation

HARRISBURG, PA – December 20, 2022 – BlackCSI, a leading managed technology ser-vices provider (MTSP), is protecting small to mid-sized businesses (SMBs) from cyberat-tacks by implementing incident response and disaster recovery plans. Cybercriminals are increasingly targeting SMBs over large corporations because stricter penalties and harsher regulations have forced larger organizations to fortify their networks from attack, whereas most SMBs try to overlook this threat from affecting their organization. Cybercriminals have responded by searching for the “low-hanging fruit,” which is underprepared SMBs that are far too busy and under resourced to develop a comprehensive IT cybersecurity defense strategy. BlackCSI has responded to this by developing comprehensive incident response and disaster recovery plans for its customers to ensure that they remain in business in event of a costly breach.

BlackCSI Educates Customers on the Importance of Cybersecurity Insurance

b2ap3_large_b2ap3_large_b2ap3_large_b2ap3_large_logo_285x285

Leading MTSP Shares How to Protect Businesses from Cybercrime

HARRISBURG, PA – September 23, 2022 – BlackCSI, a leading managed technology services provider (MTSP), is educating small to mid-sized business (SMB) owners on how they can protect their organizations from the crippling blow of a cyberattack with cybersecurity insurance. While cyberattacks have unfortunately grown in frequency and according to Inc.com, “60 percent of small businesses fold within 6 months of a cyberattack,” Cybersecurity insurance has become a vital component of any organization’s risk mitigation efforts because it can eliminate liability from any damages which occur as the result of a cyberattack. This includes ransom payments, regulatory fines, public relations costs to restore your reputation, employee/customer lawsuits and lost income as the result of a breach. With the median cost for cybersecurity insurance at $140/month, (this varies from company to company based on a wide array of factors), many businesses are opting to secure this type of insurance coverage because it allows them to continue running their businesses without incurring large capital expenditures, while providing them significant “peace of mind.” Meanwhile, they can allocate budget for IT and network security improvements, which can be spaced out over time, in a sustainable manner.

BlackCSI Educates Customers on How to Replace Manufactured Discontinued Phone Systems with Today’s Cloud Technology

b2ap3_large_b2ap3_large_b2ap3_large_logo_285x285

Leader in Managed Technology Services Increases Customer Profitability by Cost Justifying New Cloud Voice Solutions

HARRISBURG, PA – August 24, 2022 - BlackCSI, a leader in managed technology services, announced today the company has launched a campaign to educate their existing customers on a dilemma facing many growth-oriented business owners. It’s no secret that as technology continues to advance, antiquated phone systems become more obsolete each year. As time rolls on, lack of functionality becomes more pronounced, leaving business owners with outdated equipment that hinder productivity. As manufacturers move on to innovating and building better versions of their technology, business owners with older phone systems find a very tough time getting support, finding replacement parts and receiving maintenance. The greatest risk facing these businesses is that when the outdated phone system stops working, which is usually once every 5 years, this causes costly downtime because the whole office shuts down and usually takes days to get back up and running. Most business owners shudder to imagine what it would be like to have their office phones down and how expensive it would be to have a team doing nothing at the office.
