CPA firms hold immense amounts of private data that paint a personal history of their clients, making them lucrative targets for cyber criminals.
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (PRWEB) May 14, 2019
CyberScout is excited to announce a new partnership with Cyber 631, which provides a suite of cyber security services to small and medium-sized CPA firms.
With its comprehensive and time-tested array of cyber services, CyberScout is thrilled to extend its reach among the CPA firms currently registered with Cyber 631. The focus: breach consultation, both proactive and reactive. In a time when breaches and data compromise are on the rise along with the associated costs, this partnership is a big win.
“We are pleased to team with CyberScout, the industry leader in cyber security response and resolution,” said Cyber 631 President Jud Goldsmith. “CyberScout sets the standard for quick and efficient problem resolution, nipping it in the bud. These guys are amazing.”
Small and medium-size businesses are prime targets for cyber attacks because they often have fewer resources and practices in place to respond to sophisticated threats. Cyber attacks are becoming more costly for SMBs, too. The average cost due to damage or theft of IT assets jumped to more than $1 million and the average cost due to business disruption reached $1.2 million, according to the Ponemon Institute.
Under the new partnership, CPA firms with a Cyber 631 subscription will gain peace of mind with ongoing access to cyber security tools comparable to those used by Fortune 500 companies. Firms will have access to a 24/7 hotline if a cyber intrusion is suspected, guidance through the resolution process, and access to specialized counsel and additional services.
“CPA firms hold immense amounts of private data that paint a personal history of their clients, making them lucrative targets for cyber criminals,” said Chad Eaton, Chief Revenue Officer of CyberScout. “CyberScout is proud to partner with Cyber 631 to deliver the breach services these firms need and deserve.”
