Best-Selling Amazon Author on Cyber Security
My book, You Are the #1 Target, hit #1 in seven different categories (including: Computer Network Security) on Amazon. My name is Randy Bankofier, CEO & Founder of 24×7 IT Solutions. We specialize in making technology productive and easy for small business owners with 5 to 99 computers in the Portland / Vancouver metro area and have a stellar reputation for fast, proactive service that we have been delivering since 2001. We are listed #1 in cyber security companies in Portland for small and mid-sized businesses.
I do realize that the above statements and this letter may come across as “fearmongering.” It may even upset you. That is not my intent. I truly only seek to help. In fact, since you’ve taking the time to check out my website and actually read this, I’m going to offer you a Free Cyber Security Risk Assessment for your company to introduce our services to you AND to help you determine if your business could truly survive a cybercrime attack.
Obviously I don’t know you or your situation. Your IT guy might be brilliantly ahead of all of this for you, doing all the right things to protect you. However, it’s also VERY possible you’re being under-served and ill-advised by your IT company.
I frequently get calls from business owners desperate for help after a ransomware attack or devastating virus, or even to clean up the aftermath of a disgruntled employee, who HAD an IT company that they trusted with the responsibility of protecting the business, but realized all too late they weren’t doing the job they were hired to do.
There are many reasons for this. First, it could be that they simply don’t know how to advise you, or even that they should. Many IT guys know how to keep a computer network running but are completely out of their league when it comes to dealing with the advanced cyber security threats we are RECENTLY seeing.
Second, they may be “too busy” themselves to truly be proactive with your account – or maybe they don’t want to admit the service package they sold you has become OUTDATED and inadequate compared to far SUPERIOR solutions available today.
And finally, NOBODY (particularly IT guys) likes to admit they are out of their depth. They feel compelled to exaggerate their ability to avoid being fired. To be fair, they might actually have you covered and be on top of it all. However…
In my admittedly informal survey, talking to over 19 local CEOs who have been hacked or compromised, almost all of them told me they thought their IT guy “had things covered.” That’s why it’s VERY likely your IT guy does NOT have you “covered” and you need a pre-emptive, independent risk assessment like the one I’m offering in this letter.
As a CEO myself, I understand that you have to delegate and trust, at some level, that your employees and vendors are doing the right thing – but it never hurts to validate that they are. Remember, it’s YOUR reputation, YOUR money, YOUR business that’s on the line. THEIR mistake is YOUR nightmare.
Our FREE Cyber Security Risk Assessment Will Give You
The Answers You Want, The Certainty You Need
For a limited time, we are offering to give away a FREE Cyber Security Risk Assessment to a select group of businesses. This is entirely free and without obligation. EVERYTHING WE FIND AND DISCUSS WILL BE STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL.
This assessment will provide verification from a qualified third party on whether or not your current IT company is doing everything they should to keep your computer network not only up and running, but SAFE from cybercrime.
Here’s How It Works: At no cost or obligation, one of my top senior engineers will come to your office and conduct a non-invasive, CONFIDENTIAL investigation of your computer network, backups and security protocols. Your current IT company or guy DOES NOT NEED TO KNOW we are conducting this assessment. Your time investment is minimal: one hour for the initial meeting and one hour in the second meeting to go over our Report Of Findings.
