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.
