Use these tools to see if your mobile number or email address have been part of a data breach. We use a service called “Have I Been Pwned” that aggregates known security breaches. One of the most important things you can do to limit your exposer to breaches like these is to use a randomly generated password for each account. Never use the same password on more once.

Cyber Security ensures integrity, confidentiality and availability of information. Accessing that information without costly interruptions means constant revenue flow. Recovering from the hard drive, power failures and attacks in an acceptable time is paramount in today’s business world. Building a proven strategy is the best way to battle today’s challenging issues. For example, the information and physical worlds are merging and hackers and criminals threaten to gain access into our cyber-physical systems such as cars, medical devices, power plants and even our IoT refrigerator. Protecting our personal and business infrastructure from these threats will give us a confident assurance in an environment that is dangerous and unpredictable.
Network Security is like the world we live in; it has traffic lights, traffic and road signs, and two-directional traffic lanes to keep everyone from collisions and accidents. Our internal networks need the same organization and safety measures put in place to protect our network highways. We have police to keep things in order in the real world, so also, our networks need policing. We want to feel secure when we travel from place to place and we also want to feel secure when our data travels. Routers, firewalls and switches help direct traffic just like our traffic lights. Routers help in routing to the proper location, firewalls check what we are sending and receiving is safe and switches help in direction. However, without network security we would not know where, when, how safe or if our data was sent. Blue Ridge Technology can be your network police force to secure monitor and maintain your internal and external networks so you can feel safe.
Data Backup and Recovery
What is one of the most important things you should buy when you purchase a big ticket or expensive item (e.g. house, car, boat, etc.)? It is something to help protect you from losing what is precious and important to you. Insurance is what we purchase when we want to protect what is important to us in case our home catches on fire, a car accident, or whatever it is that we value as irreplaceable. So, why don’t we perceive our data as being something irreplaceable as well? Our data is our businesses, memories, finances, thoughts and whatever we decide to place on our PCs and networks. Data can be recovered and replaced if accidentally deleted, high-jacked, or misplaced. Just like today, we place our valuables in safe deposit boxes, safes, locked cabinets, and other places we feel are protected from permanent disaster. In the same way, we can protect your valuable data even if it is lost or stolen by personal mishap or by someone else’s purposeful planning. Let us put your mind at ease by allowing us to protect what is precious and important to you today.

In addition, a website that has been strategically and thoroughly thought out can aid in boosting your company’s expansion by opening a window to market your business to clients yet untouched.
