First,  this is not an i3 Business Solutions April Fools joke. Business risk is a serious conversation.

If you’re a small to medium business in Grand Rapids, Michigan, West Michigan, or the State of Michigan, what are the benefits of improving your technology cybersecurity? First and foremost is business risk mitigation. How does investing in technology risk improvement help your company?

1. Win and Maintain Customer Trust & Loyalty
  • A data breach can severely damage your brand’s reputation. When customer data is compromised, trust crumbles. By prioritizing cyber security, you demonstrate commitment to data protection.
  • Even small businesses can use privacy and cyber security as a selling point. Features like a “trust” stamp from a payment gateway or two-factor authentication can foster long-term customer loyalty.
  • Clients expect their data to be handled securely. By investing in cybersecurity, you demonstrate your commitment to protecting their information.
2. Handle Risks Associated with Remote Workforces
  • With the rise of remote work due to the pandemic, organizations face increased threats to sensitive information. Employees working from home may inadvertently expose corporate devices to risks.
  • Cybersecurity awareness training and robust IT resources can help mitigate these risks and keep systems secure.
  • As more employees work remotely, securing their devices and connections becomes crucial. i3’s solution provides protection even in dispersed work environments.
3. Qualify for Cybersecurity Insurance
  • i3’s Fortress Cybersecurity Solution enables small businesses to qualify for cybersecurity insurance. Having coverage provides financial protection in case of security incidents.
4. Protect Your Reputation:
  • A security breach can tarnish your business reputation. Implementing robust security measures ensures that your brand remains trustworthy and reliable.
5. Safeguard Valuable Data:
  • Small businesses handle sensitive data, including customer information, financial records, and intellectual property. Cybersecurity safeguards this critical data from theft or unauthorized access.
6. Defend Digital Assets:
  • Digital assets such as websites, databases, and software are vulnerable to cyber-attacks. i3’s Fortress Cybersecurity helps shield these assets from threats.
  • In summary, i3 Business Solutions’ Fortress Cybersecurity offers comprehensive protection, allowing small businesses to safeguard their networks, build trust, and defend against evolving cyber threats.
