Attention: Business Owners Searching For

Cyber Security Companies

When You Fall Victim To A Cyber-Attack
Through No Fault Of Your Own, Will They Call You
Stupid…Or Just Irresponsible?

An URGENT Notice To All Small Business Owners And CEOs In Portland and across the U.S.A.: We have entirely FREE and time-sensitive information that is critical for you as a CEO to know regarding growing cyber security threats AND your company’s credentials being sold on the “Dark Web.” Please respond ASAP.

Dear Friend,

It’s EXTREMELY unfair, isn’t it? Victims of all other crimes – burglary, rape, mugging, carjacking, theft – get sympathy from others. They are called “victims” and support comes flooding in, as it should.

But if your business is the victim of a cybercrime attack where client or patient data is compromised, you will NOT get such sympathy. You will be instantly labeled as stupid or irresponsible. You will be investigated and questioned about what you did to prevent this from happening – and if the answer is not adequate, you can be found liable, facing serious fines and lawsuits EVEN IF you trusted one of the IT companies in Portland to protect you. It is critical to find one of the best cyber security companies to help you.

Claiming ignorance is not an acceptable defense, and this giant, expensive and reputation-destroying nightmare will land squarely on YOUR shoulders. But it doesn’t end there…

According to Oregon and Washington laws, you will be required to tell your clients, employees and/or patients that YOU exposed them to cybercriminals. Your competition will have a heyday over this. Clients will be IRATE and leave in droves. Morale will TANK and employees will BLAME YOU. Your bank is NOT required to replace funds stolen due to cybercrime (go ask them), and unless you have a very specific type of insurance policy, any financial losses will be denied coverage.

Please do NOT underestimate the importance and likelihood of these threats. It is NOT safe to assume your IT company (or guy) is doing everything they should be doing to protect you; in fact, there is a high probability they are NOT, which we can demonstrate with your permission.

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.

When this Risk Assessment is complete, you will know:

Icon representing the login credentials of your employees being up for sale on the dark web for any cyber criminal to purchase.

If you and your employees’ login credentials are being sold on the Dark Web (I can practically guarantee one or more are… THIS will shock you). Thanks to a new threat intelligence and ID-monitoring service we subscribe to, we can run a report on YOUR company and see what credentials are actively being sold on the Dark Web, which is a part of the World Wide Web accessible only by means of special software, allowing operators to remain completely and totally anonymous and untraceable, used by the most notorious cybercrime rings around the world.

Icon representing the importance of getting frequent reliable security patches on all your computer devices, otherwise you are a cyber criminals dream.

IF your IT systems and data are truly secured from hackers, cybercriminals, viruses, worms and even sabotage by rogue employees. If you’re not getting weekly security updates from your current IT person, your systems probably aren’t secure. You should also know that antivirus software and most firewalls are grossly inadequate against the sophisticated attacks now happening.

Icon representing importance of backups that are less likely to be hacked by cyber criminals. Cyber security companies should be looking at your backups and performing test restores.

IF your current backup would allow you to be back up and running again fast if ransomware locked all your files. In 99% of the computer networks we’ve reviewed over the years, the owners were shocked to learn the backup they had would NOT survive a ransomware attack. Ransomware is designed to infect your backups as well, leaving you defenseless. There are only a handful of backup systems that will prevent this from happening.

Icon representing employee security awareness training which the FBI says is the number one thing all small businesses should do.

DO your employees truly know how to spot a phishing e-mail? We will actually put them to the test. We’ve never seen a company pass 100%. Never.

Icon representing government compliance. Cyber security companies can help you be compliant to help prevent huge fines for non-compliance.

Are your IT systems, backups, policies and procedures in sync with compliance requirements for HIPAA/GLBA/SOX/etc.).

Cyber criminal hands you a big bomb that has its fuse lit. This is when you realize you need small business cyber security services fast.
Cyber criminal has their foot in the door to your network and is looking around your business to steal money and your data. You now start searching for cyber security companies in Portland.

If we DO find problems… overlooked security loopholes, inadequate backups, credentials that have been compromised, out-of-date firewall and antivirus software and (often) active malware… on one or more of the PCs in your office, we will propose an Action Plan to remediate the situation that you can have us implement for you if you choose. Again, I want to tress that EVERYTHING WE DISCUSS AND DISCOVER WILL BE STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL.

Why Free?

Frankly, we want the opportunity to be your IT company. We know we are the most competent, responsive and trusted managed IT services provider to small businesses in the Portland / Vancouver metro area. We are one of the top cyber security companies in Portland.

However, I also realize there’s a good chance you’ve been burned, disappointed and frustrated by the complete lack of service and the questionable advice you’ve gotten from other IT companies in the past. In fact, you might be so fed up and disgusted with being “sold” and under-served that you don’t trust anyone. I don’t blame you.

That’s why this assessment is completely and entirely free. Let us earn your trust by demonstrating our expertise. While we would love the opportunity to be your IT company, we will come in with no expectations and only look to provide you with fact-based information so you can make a quality, informed decision – and we’ll ONLY discuss the option of becoming your IT company if the information we share makes sense and you want to move forward. No hard sell. No gimmicks and no tricks.

Please…Do NOT Just Shrug This Off

I know you are extremely busy and there is enormous temptation to discard this, shrug it off, worry about it “later” or dismiss it altogether. That is, undoubtedly, the easy choice…but the easy choice is rarely the RIGHT choice. This I can guarantee: At some point, you WILL HAVE TO DEAL WITH A CYBER SECURITY EVENT.

Hopefully you’ll be brilliantly prepared for it and experience only a minor inconvenience at most. But if you wait and do NOTHING, I can practically guarantee this will be a far more costly, disruptive and devastating attack that will happen to your business.

You’ve spent a lifetime working hard to get where you are today. Don’t let some lowlife thief operating outside the law in another country get away with taking that from you. And certainly don’t “hope” your IT guy has you covered. Get the facts and be certain you are protected.
