HOW WE KEEP YOUR DATA SAFE
System security is a big deal to us here at Expert Computer Repair. Which is good news if protection against cyber threats is something you are concerned about. The statistics are showing 2007 was a watershed year for cybercrime, breaking all previous records. And every indication is that the trend is set to continue despite the best attempts of law enforcement to stop it. The rise of the STORM worm, drive-by downloads, and development of targeted spear-phishing attacks means computer users are facing an unprecedentled level of threat from the internet. Don't know what these are? If Expert Computer Repair is providing security for your computer systems, you don't need to.
We keep track of the latest breaking threats, so you don't have to. No longer is computer security something for government and big business to attend to. Every day more and more small businesses and regular users are being targeted by the growing wave of global cybercrime. As this report shows, unprotected computers of any kind may be compromised within 20 minutes of being placed online. Here are some ways we keep your systems safe and prevent you from becoming another statistic.
Every system we service is patched before it is brought online
Every system will have up to date anti-virus and firewall protection before it is brought online
Unnecessary services (Telnet, IIS, FTP) will be disabled
Strong passwords are used
Firewalls are locked down to restrict data flow and unnecessary ports are closed
The Active Directory environment is brought up to the highest level of security possible (2003 native mode, NTLM v.2, strong session keys)
Sensitive data is encrypted where possible
Access audits are performed to ensure only authorized users have access to critical machines
A layered security model is employed to ensure even if security is compromised in one area, the network as a whole is still protected
Where budget permits, IPS (Intrusion Prevention Systems) will be in place and monitored
Only top rated security equipment by trusted vendors is used
Logs are checked for unusual activity
If any suspicious activity is discovered, sweeps for rootkits, trojans, and malware are performed
If you sign up for one of our Monthly Maintanence plans, you can rest assured that all your systems will be up to date with the latest in software patches to make your computers virtually hacker proof.
