Cloud based systems like Office 365 and Google are prime targets for bad guys
Why? Because humans are predictable!
- We typically re-use the same passwords across multiple sites. So if LinkedIn gets breached, then the bad guys can quickly use those same passwords to log into Office 365.
- We are curious – and we want to help. If you get an email from a colleague asking to collaborate on a file or to help with a payment, we typically take action without confirming that the request is legitimate.
- The bad guys use these tactics to help steal your log in information – which can then be used to siphon money and data out of your company.
Know Your Risks With Our Security Report Card
Our expert security team can deliver a 5-point full report that will show you exactly where your security and data management is lacking.
Your custom report will cover:
- Administrative Controls
- Security Controls
- Technical Controls

These security reports are custom-made for each company. We don't believe that security and data management is a one-size-fits-all or cookie-cutter solution. We work with you to leverage technology to bring your business the most benefits.
Here are 7 simple and free things you can do to help mitigate your data risks.
- Set up a wire transfer policy that requires voice confirmation before a wire is executed or approved.
- Set up a custom log in page for Office 365 or Google that helps the employee quickly identify that the page they are logging into is really your company page.
- Review your Admins (in Office 365 they are called Global Admins). If you have any end users that are using their day to day account as a Global Admin, set up a separate account (such as email@example.com) that is used for administrative activities. This can protect your tenant in case the employee’s email gets compromised. (Global Admins don’t have to have licenses assigned, so this is free!)
- While you are at it, set up MFA for your Global Admins. Consider setting it up for all users (recommended!). There are free and paid options.
- Remind your staff, frequently, that security starts with them and they should think twice before clicking that link or authorizing that wire.
- Have your insurance provider review your coverage for cyber security and social engineering fraud coverage.
- Check the dark web to see if your account has been compromised in a data breach.
