Cyber threats and data breaches are unfortunately a common occurance now. It's essential for businesses to take steps to ensure their data and systems are secure before hackers find their way in. Don't let your business be a statistic.
Internetek experts perform a holistic risk assessment of your business, technology, and policies. We audit all the systems within an organization to identify potential risks that could compromise the security and functionality of your infrastructure. When we've finished we provide you with a detailed report outlining our recommendations and steps you can take to improve security and reduce the likelihood of a breach.
For example, the report could include a detailed analysis of potential vulnerabilities, including the identification of weak passwords, software vulnerabilities, and unsecured devices. The report may also include an evaluation of network security, data protection measures, and disaster recovery plans.

Working with insurance agencies
We work with insurance companies to verify information as part of the quoting and auditing process. Cybersecurity can lower insurance premiums for businesses in a few ways:
1. Reduced Risk of Cyber Incidents: A well-implemented cybersecurity program can reduce the risk of cyber incidents such as data breaches, network outages, and other cyber threats. By demonstrating to insurers that they have implemented appropriate security measures, businesses can reduce their risk profile, which can lead to lower insurance premiums.
2. Better Risk Management: A strong cybersecurity program is part of good risk management practices for businesses. By identifying and addressing vulnerabilities and threats, businesses can better manage their risks and reduce their exposure to financial losses. Insurers appreciate when businesses take risk management seriously and may offer lower premiums as a result.
3. Compliance with Regulations: Many industries are subject to regulatory requirements related to cybersecurity, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). By demonstrating compliance with these regulations, businesses can lower their risk of regulatory fines and legal actions, which can in turn lead to lower insurance premiums.
4. Improved Incident Response: Even the best cybersecurity measures may not be able to prevent all cyber incidents. However, having a well-developed incident response plan in place can minimize the damage caused by a cyber attack and help businesses recover more quickly. Insurers appreciate when businesses have a plan in place to respond to incidents and may offer lower premiums to those who do.
When properly implemented, cybersecurity can help businesses reduce their risk profile, manage risk better, comply with regulations, and respond to incidents more effectively, all of which can lead to lower insurance premiums.
