With Ransomware At An All-Time High, Maybe It’s Time You Took A
Closer Look
At What Your Current IT Company Is Doing To Secure You From An Expensive, Devastating Cyber-Attack, Data Breach Or Compliance Violation

Did you know that more than 11,000 security breaches have occurred because of the Medibank leak? This number keeps increasing. You need to immediately ensure that you protect both yourself and, more importantly, your Business.

Over the last year, there have been significant changes in cyber risks, as well as NEW mandates for greater cyber protections for ALL businesses. These mandates are being driven by a growing number of government agencies, insurance companies, and even clients and prospects who are demanding their vendors have proper cyber protections in place as a condition of obtaining their business.

    What has your current IT company told you about this? Your insurance agent?

The answer is probably nothing – and there’s a very good chance your current IT company is NOT protecting you as it should and is putting you at underappreciated risk for the losses and financial devastation a cyber-attack, data breach or compliance violation would cause.

For this reason, we are reaching out to as many businesses as we can in the Sydney area to offer two vital but completely free resources to help you:

·        A FREE, independent, no-obligation Cyber Security Risk Assessment.

·        A new FREE report titled “The Cyber Security Crisis: Urgent And Critical Cyber Protections Every Business Must Have In Place Now.”

This free information, along with the free Risk Assessment, will undoubtedly reveal areas where you are at underappreciated or unknown risk, and might save your business from serious financial, reputational and operational losses due to an IT security oversight.

For your convenience, we’ve posted the full details and instant access to the free report at our website, www.nortec.com.au/cyberreport. You may also e-mail me direct at [email protected] or call our office at 1300 667 832 to schedule a brief, 10- to 15-minute call to discuss your specific situation and to answer your questions.

Who We Are And Why We Are Reaching Out To You Now 

My name is David Norris, and I own Nortec IT. We specialise in making technology productive, secure and easy for business owners. We have a stellar reputation for fast, proactive service built over 32 years. I am on the Australian Computer Society -Cybersecurity Technical Review Board. In this position, I review future government legislation related to cybersecurity, among other things. 

I am the Chair of the CompTIA committee in ANZ and regularly run security training courses for companies of all sizes on their behalf. CompTIA recently recognised me in their spotlight awards for my Cyber Security Leadership in the community. I am also certified as an ACSC Essential Eight Assessor. My business was also awarded ANZ Solution Provider of the Year for its work in Cyber Security.

Here’s why we’re reaching out: After talking to several business owners in our area, we’re shocked to discover that NONE of them were aware of the new government mandates pertaining to cyber security and data protection, nor were they aware of the changes happening in the insurance industry that directly impact their ability to get insurance coverage and payments for cyber-related incidents.

I do realise that the above statements may seem “sensational. Maybe you think, “We’re fine.” It’s natural to insist, “We’re too small,” or to think you’re not at risk because your current IT company and software have got you “covered.”

But I can assure you of this: I have never failed to find significant and preventable security loopholes in the businesses I’ve audited. It’s my firm belief that right now, this very minute, YOUR business has unforgivable gaps in your IT security, backup, and data recovery that you have not been made aware of.

If you have even a sneaking suspicion that even some of this is true, at what point would it be irresponsible to be “too busy” to investigate it?


Why Are We Offering This For Free?

 Obviously, we’d like the opportunity to be your IT company. If you are a security-minded Business Owner who does not want your business, income, reputation, or clients to be “at risk,” then we are uniquely positioned to help you.

However, there’s a good chance you’ve been burned, disappointed, and lied to in the past by other IT companies (or other vendors in general). Therefore, we offer you a free, no-risk way to “sample” our work, get to know us, and evaluate whether or not you are getting true value and correct advice from your IT company before making a critical change in who handles your IT.

I will make you this promise: even if we never do business together, I can assure you that you WILL benefit from the information and expert insights contained in our free report, as well as having an independent, third party assess if your current IT company is doing what they should.


Here Are Just A Few Of The Ways Your Current IT Company Is Putting You At Underappreciated Risk

Grossly Inadequate Cyber Security Protections

When a cyber-attack happens, the losses stack up and multiply. At best, your operations are crippled. Worst case, you’re completely shut down, unable to transact, unable to deliver promised products and services to clients and unable to operate. In other cases, thousands, if not millions, of dollars are drained directly from your accounts without any chance of recovery.

Then you have the loss of critical data, reputational damages, potential lawsuits and government fines. The epicentre of this disaster lands DIRECTLY on YOUR desk for YOU to deal with.

Yet despite this, we have found that <<100% of the>> companies we’ve audited are GROSSLY unprepared for and unprotected from a cyber-attack event EVEN THOUGH they have invested heavily in IT. Before we showed them irrefutable evidence of these inadequacies, the CEO was convinced their “IT team had it handled.” A ticking time bomb they didn’t know was “live” under their seat.

Further, if your IT company has NOT met with your insurance provider to review the coverages you have for a cyber-attack (crime, cyber liability, etc.) to ENSURE you have the right IT security protections implemented as YOU have personally agreed to implement in order to get coverage in your policy, YOU are at risk of having your claim denied when you need it the most.


Chronic IT “Glitches” And Downtime

Any Business Owner knows that unproductive, distracted workers not only kill profitability, but increase the chances of mistakes, missed deadlines, sloppy work and low morale. A frustrated team is not a productive one.

 Yet we find that most owners don’t realise just how often their employees are being interrupted and distracted due to recurring IT failures because it’s “hidden” from them. Many are shocked to discover their employees are dealing with chronic IT problems that constantly get in the way of serving clients, closing sales, and doing their jobs, forcing them to stop what they are doing, redo the work they just spent hours doing, or possibly NOT doing what they are supposed to do.

We will fix ALL of this.

“Maverick” Spending, Poor Utilisation And Undisciplined Planning

Many companies we’ve audited have a mishmash of patchwork technology pieced together like an old quilt—a “Frankenstein monster” lumbering along. Nothing matches, nothing works as efficiently as it should, and the entire IT system is awash in inefficiencies, duplicate and redundant resources and outdated technologies. Over time, this gets worse, creating more problems, cost and complexity. Our approach is to eliminate ALL of this and ensure a well-crafted plan is implemented to maximise productivity, security and efficiencies.

Book your free assessment at nortec.com.au/risk 

This Assessment can be conducted 100% remotely with or without your current IT company or department knowing. At the end of the Assessment, you’ll know:

§ Whether or not your systems and data are truly secured from hackers and ransomware and where you are partially or totally exposed. 

§ If your data is actually being backed up in a manner that would allow you to recover it quickly in the event of an emergency or ransomware attack. 

§ Where you are unknowingly violating <<insert specific data breach or compliance regulations specific to the list you’re targeting; insurance requirements, etc.>>.

§ Whether you can lower the overall costs of IT while improving communication, security and performance, as well as the productivity of your employees.

    

Fresh eyes see new things – so, at a minimum, engaging with us is a risk-free way to get a credible third party to ensure your current IT company delivers the protection and professional services you’re paying for.
