Modern Cyber Threats: Hacks, Outages and 1-Star Reviews 1080 540 Trapp Technology

These days, modern cyber threats can take on a multitude of forms. A hacked network, power outage, or even a 1-star review on Google can all be costly problems for a small business.

In fact, according to a recent study by the ITIC, 98% of organizations indicated an IT network outage cost them more than $100,000 per hour.

Maybe you’d calculate less for ‎your business‎. But even so, Trapp Technology suggests the negative reputation incurred after any of the above events is even more damaging than the raw costs themselves.

Here’s another example: all it takes are a few 1-star reviews on Google to convince leads to go with a competitor. That kind of bad press can significantly thwart business growth—robbing you of thousands of dollars in potential opportunities over the years.

Luckily, leveraging a managed services provider (MSP) like Trapp Technology helps drastically reduce those risks by:

  • Identifying and neutralizing security threats before they can bring your network down
  • Mitigating network issues to get your business back online quickly and safely when necessary
  • Proactively monitoring and maintaining network components to maximize network uptime

We know firsthand how detrimental a setback can be, so we’ve made it our business to help businesses across the US mitigate their risks as much as possible so they maintain a healthy business and ultimately sleep well at night. In fact, we recently rescued a dental office in Phoenix, AZ from a major network hack, saving the practice from completely shutting down. You can read exactly what happened here in this case study.
