Balance cybersecurity versus physical security at your Southlake, Texas business with Corptek

Contact Corptek Solutions today to schedule an assessment of your current environment. Our consultants are experts in their fields and can help you determine where to concentrate your resources concerning cybersecurity versus physical security.  

How do you prioritize cybersecurity versus physical security at your Southlake, Texas business? Both are important but you may wish to evaluate the strategy you use to protect your business. Physical security is still very important to keep your customers, employees, and inventory safe. However, there’s a growing threat from hackers and cybercriminals who want to invade your network systems and steal sensitive customer and company data.

Corptek Solutions takes a comprehensive view of physical and cyber factors that increase your company’s vulnerability.

Physical security is still relevant, however, malware and new technology let’s sophisticated hackers access your company’s critical data remotely. Cybersecurity training should be a top priority to safeguard your sensitive data.

What Should Be the Overarching Strategy Goal?

“Defense in depth is a common principle in cybersecurity that involves layering security controls across a system. For example, network security across multiple layers might include a border firewall, compartmentalization, web application firewall, intrusion detection systems, and internal firewalls. Access controls and antivirus software provide additional layers of security on top of this,” according to the International Journal for Information Security Research.

The same article cautions that physical security must expand to include tampering with IoT devices and other endpoint devices that have access to your network.

What About Remote Devices?

Cybersecurity efforts have certainly attracted a lot of headlines with data breaches appearing in headlines daily. Also, devices connected to the Internet of Things (IoT) Have provided unprecedented access to remote owners and users — but this freedom and convenience come at a cost.

Remote devices are prone to physical attacks from unauthorized users you can use them to infiltrate your systems. Many of these devices are not as secure as they could be, and if you’re using them to connect to the company network, it could pose as an attractive target for hackers.

“While cybersecurity is not to be downplayed, physical security should not be overlooked and is equally concerning. Physical attacks could jeopardize critical units like Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems, Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs), and Smart Cities and Transportation management solutions. This could lead to widespread, costly and hazardous damage to city services, water systems and even more,” according to DIGI, an online retailer of Internet of Things devices and services.

Awareness is key when balancing attention and resources between physical and cybersecurity security.

Corptek has been amazing to work with! When I first called Corptek my company was suffering a tragic incident where all of our data was compromised. They came on board and helped us get back online immediately. The team is very responsive, listens and understands our needs & provides the best options. Thank you Corptek Team!

What a difference! Corptek came in and did a great job at transitioning us to their software! There was minimal downtime and they made the process seamless. Our server crashed less than a week after moving over and they were able to get us back up and running without any disruption to our daily activities. I highly recommend them!

On 2/15/22 our IT company that we have used for a while and have been paying to back up our data and service our network was working on my business laptop. Long story short, they crashed my computer, blue screen of death, bit key encrypted the whole works.This was devastating for me because once this happened they discovered that they did not back our system up and flat out told me that they could not fix it. All of my business records for over 6 years were gone, my sons pictures of him being a baby, our wedding pictures, all of my quick books, everything was gone!!!! To say I panicked and had a major anxiety attack is mild to what I went through! After trying for hours to find someone to help me I received a message from a friend out of the blue and she asked me how my day was going and I told her. She said I have a great IT guy, Mr. Neil and that she would give me his number.I called Mr. Neil first thing in the morning. Mr.Neil made room in his personal schedule because all of his employees had a full schedule.I was planning on hearing the worst that they wouldn’t be able to save my computer and all was lost. However, I kept praying and hoping that it could be saved.Mr. Neil is beyond amazing. He jumped right in and saved my data, my pictures, everything!!!!!! It was like an albatross was lifted off of my neck as soon as he said he was able to start retrieving my data. He is a Rockstar with computers!!!!He has the best customer service that I can honestly say I have received in over a decade. He even allowed me to bring my son with me to his office so I didn’t have to find daycare! His whole staff was welcoming and comforting! If you need IT service for your business please call this company!!!

I don't normally leave reviews not unless they are really good or really bad. I had been in the business for almost 20 years and we always need computers and IT service. I can honestly say that Corptek Solutions is the one that is rated on top of my list. They do exceptional work and they know their stuff. They are quick to help and resolve our IT issues. This company has qualified IT techs unlike others that hire techs that are no sure of how to work issues. These guys are the real deal!For our employees they are the best thing that happened to us in a long time. Great job Jason and Neil!

We recently started working with Neil and Jason after having a terrible experience with a prior IT company. They have been a true blessing! They are so easy to work with and their knowledge is outstanding! They jumped right in and got the business back up and secure again. They will be installing a new server for us and I am very excited to be able to sit back and not worry about whether it's going to be done correctly or not. They also pointed out several security issues that the prior company never mentioned. I look forward to our continued business with them! Thanks again guys!
