Small Business Owner Becomes a Target

As a small business owner, it can be hard to know if your cyber security is good enough. If one day your systems are tested, how can you be sure you won’t get breached?

The Solution

Trident Lockdown is designed to block any infiltration in a way that is completely different from Antivirus and Firewalls. In the event something or someone breaks through, Trident Lockdown provides the defence layer the small business owner needs for peace of mind

Medium size business owner Michael owns two restaurants. Each employs several staff and things are going well. Recently his restaurants received a prestigious magazine award and both venues are now fully booked most days of the week. He doesn’t realise it but, this accolade has made him a target.

Michael is unaware that his security is woefully inadequate. His business isn’t large enough to hire an IT security specialist and he is busy with other tasks. All his equipment is purchased pre-configured from the local PC shop. Even if he had specialist help, it’s no guarantee that there isn’t still an unnoticed weakness left leaving his systems exposed.

A rival restauranteur has noticed a slowdown in trade since Michael won the award and wants to do something to disrupt Michael’s business and potentially steal some of his clientele. His rival has found his way to a ‘hacker-for-hire’ and instructed him to gain access to Michael’s business systems, steal any useful information like customer lists, supplier lists, or staff info and then run some ransomware to disrupt the business.

This would be devastating to Michael because he has passwords stored in word files on the office computer and the hacker is smart enough to use those to access his online bank and also plans to install a software layer to scan credit card details as they go through the Point-of-Sale machine. Michael could be in real trouble.

Thankfully, although there are a few machines, with security holes the hacker is unable to get any code to run. Michael has used Trident Lockdown which blocks unauthorised code. Although he didn’t have the resources to get expert security help, Trident Lockdown gave him the peace of mind needed because he couldn’t be sure his systems were perfect and he opted for the additional financial protection of cyber security insurance just in case.

People who seek to infiltrate computers and business systems do so for a reward. Remove that potential and they will very quickly move elsewhere. Trident Lockdown can block cyber-attacks and ensure that small businesses without the budget for dedicated IT staff are protected from the damages of cyberattacks.
