Call for free Assessment

The recent ransomware attack that crippled The News-Review disrupting newspaper deliveries, wasn’t an isolated incident in some far-off city. It happened right here in Roseburg – a grim reminder that local businesses aren’t invincible to these insidious cybersecurity attacks.

While The News-Review is taking commendable steps to recover with expert aid, this should be a wake-up call for everyone running a business in our community. The question isn’t IF you could be targeted, but WHEN, and whether you’re prepared to stand strong against it.

What Makes a Business Vulnerable?

Many think only big operations attract hackers, but here are some local truths:

  • Smaller targets = Weaker Defenses? Understaffed businesses often feel under the radar, but lack of IT resources actually makes you easier prey.

  • “Our Data Isn’t Worth Stealing” Mentality Ransomware isn’t always about selling client lists. Your operation grinds to a halt, damaging revenue AND reputation.

  • Outdated Tech is a Welcome Mat Cybercriminals know old systems have soft spots. Updates or patches you skip out of habit might be the entry point.

  • Staff: Your First Line of Defense…or Your Biggest Risk? Clicking links, opening shady files – basic errors add up to big headaches. Is your team trained for today’s threat landscape?

Beyond Backups: Proactive Protection the systech Way

We were proud to play a role in assisting The News-Review through this crisis. Yet, our aim is to help Roseburg businesses avoid attacks in the first place. How do we differ from basic IT?

  • Layered Security Anti-malware tools to controlled system access – nothing’s foolproof, but we create a harder maze to deter would-be attackers.

  • Rapid Incident Response Plans If the worst happens, we don’t JUST deal with tech. We assist with client comms, damage limitation strategizing.

  • Employee Training for the Modern Reality No jargon, no generic videos. We make staff the heroes of your data security in ways they actually remember.

The Power of Preparedness

Imagine if this happened to YOU:

  • Client deadlines crippled for days or weeks

  • Lost sales while systems are down, the phone lines jammed with confused customers

  • The stress of wondering if sensitive data leaked, not knowing the legal cost on top of recovery

Don’t wait for those nightmares to hit your bottom line. The good news is, being proactive doesn’t have to be daunting.
