Reliable Cybersecurity for Small and Medium-sized Businesses

Why Every Business Needs Cybersecurity

Canada has seen a significant rise in cybercrime over the past year. With over 85% of Canadian companies affected by successful cyberattacks in 2022, it’s surprising more Canadians aren’t talking about their privacy and data protection. Did you know the average cost of a successful data breach for Canadian companies is $5.4 million? And the average ransomware hit cost Canadian companies almost $2 million to remedy?

Small and medium-sized businesses stand to benefit the most by being proactive about their organization’s cybersecurity. Not only do cybercriminals often target small businesses because they have weaker security, but these kinds of businesses are also less likely to have the resources available to effectively recover.

Cybersecurity Services

Endpoint Response and Detection

  • Using EDR, we constantly monitor for potential threats on your organization's endpoints, such as computers, laptops, and mobile devices, providing real-time threat detection, investigation, and rapid response.

Vulnerability and Cybersecurity Risk Assessments

  • Our advanced cybersecurity and vulnerability assessment includes a sequence of evaluations on your organization's IT systems, networks, and applications.
  • Typically, BSD initiates its services with a preliminary vulnerability assessment to identify security gaps, prioritize security measures, and test recovery protocols.

Zero Trust Security

  • Our zero-trust security solution offers clients the ability to require strict authentication, authorization, and continuous monitoring when securely accessing their digital ecosystem.
  • By assuming zero trust in any user or endpoint from inside and/or outside the network, our zero-trust security solution ensures some of the highest levels of available cybersecurity for small and medium-sized businesses.

Zero-Click Malware Protection

  • To combat the rise of Zero-Click Malware, we’ve accumulated a specialized toolset specifically designed to protect against automated malware and other types of threats that require little-no user interaction.

Phishing Tests and Simulation

  • Overall cybercrime has been steadily increasing each year, but phishing risk has increased exponentially in the last 12 months. Phishing resistance training can empower any business to mitigate phishing threats by transforming their employees from their biggest cybersecurity risk into their biggest cybersecurity asset.
  • Our simulation trains your employees against a variety of phishing tactics including credential theft, social engineering tactics, spear phishing and whaling, Business Email Compromise (BEC), standard ransomware & malware phishing, smishing, vishing, and more.

Identity and Access Management (IAM)

  • With IAM, we seamlessly manage user identities by controlling their access to cloud resources, ensuring only authorized individuals have access to secure data and applications in the cloud.

Employee Security Training

  • Educate your employees with cybersecurity training that focuses on educating staff on identifiers of potential IT risks, suspicious emails, secure browsing, and more. We empower your employees to play an active part in safeguarding the company’s confidentiality.

24/7 Monitoring

  • We offer 24/7 surveillance of your organization's systems, networks, and endpoints to detect and respond to potential security incidents in real-time. With round-the-clock monitoring, our clients can proactively identify and remediate security issues the moment they happen.

Incidence Response

  • What would be the financial impact on your business if you were locked out of your system for 2 days? How about 4 days? How long before the damage is irreparable? Our systematic approach to incidence response involves identifying, containing, removing, and remediating breaches. By executing the fastest path to recovery through a tested response framework, we minimize impact on business operations and restore your system to normal.

Front-Line Defense

  • BSD offers quality front-line defense solutions that are budget flexible. Our knowledge of the different kinds of available network security devices ensures that we provide the defense necessary to address your individual business needs. We create barriers between trusted internal networks and untrusted external networks and prevent unauthorized access from potential threats.
