A new computer breach every 39 seconds

Your system has been breached. What do you do?

FIRST STEP is removing the system from the network by unplugging the Ethernet cable, turning off the Wi-Fi, or turning the device off.

NEXT, get an analyst looking at the device as soon as possible, but move quickly. The more time it takes you to get the breach stopped and isolated, the more at risk your data will be.

It is best to have a plan in place before breaches happen because time is money, especially when it comes to breach response time.

For instance, our tooling software was able to stop a breach in 60 seconds, but if it had been about 15 minutes, information would have been leaving the building. In total, we were able to stop and isolate the breach in about 9 minutes. Without the proper planning in place, this incident could have been a lot worse.

Breaches are becoming more and more common in today’s workplace and it is imperative that you are prepared. We work with businesses every day to make sure they are safe and protected with the most up-to-date security measures. If your organization does not have a plan, let us know and we can start the process today. Just give us a call at 803-279-1100 or email us at

I have created a video to go along with this article. You can check it out below.
