Cyber security services for small to medium sized businesses in San Marcos,
Texas and surrounding areas.
When it comes to cyber security, it is easy for small to medium sized businesses to say “not me”, “they
are only after the big guys.” The reality is that attacks on all networks have been increasing year after
year as hackers have become more sophisticated, and small businesses are being affected every day by relaxed
or non-existent security policies.
A 2013 study showed that 1 in every 5 small businesses networks would be compromised. With the ever-increasing technological advances, it is likely that since then, these numbers have climbed, posing a significant risk for a potential breach, lost or stolen data, or some type of malicious threat.

- Updates - Keeping computers and network equipment updated
is one of the most effective steps to preventing a possible cyber security issue.
- Firewall - A common mistake in small to medium business
networks is the lack of a business grade firewall solution. Often business owners are unaware of the
difference between having a network router and having a network firewall in place.
- Passwords - Password and password protection are proving
to be an area that needs attention when discussing cyber security. Using sophisticated software and
tools, hackers are easily gaining access to small business networks through simple or default
- Antivirus/Antispam - Most people know that antivirus and
antispam software are necessary components of cyber security, but many people don’t realize why its so
important until their computer or network is infected with a virus, malware, spyware, or a host of other
potentially dangerous issues.
