What Is Cyber Security Monitoring? (& Why Your MSP Needs It)

Cyber security monitoring is a growing trend in the small business community.

The world has changed and small businesses have embraced digital connectivity. They use e-commerce stores, store data in the cloud, and talk with clients online. Running our businesses online has become so easy, we do it without a second thought.

However, digital convenience comes at a cost. Being connected makes businesses more susceptible to hackers and malicious actors online.

In this blog, we’re going to explain what cyber security monitoring is and why your business needs it now.

Let’s jump in.


What Is Cyber Security Monitoring

What Is Cyber Security Monitoring?

Cyber security monitoring is a 24/7 service that watches out for all digital threats.

Consider it like a CCTV system for your business. The service alerts you in real-time when hackers have broken in. Then it goes one step further. It can show you where there are gaps in your security so that you can fix them before they become problems. Anti-virus software and firewalls are like strong doors and locks, but how would you know if someone was able to sneak it?

Cyber security monitoring stands guard around the clock. This means you don’t need to wait for a surprise break-in to know that your business is vulnerable to hackers. Be proactive and find the weak points before someone takes advantage of you.

What Does Cyber Security Monitoring…  Monitor?

The types of monitoring that your cyber security service covers will depend on the provider.

Here at Iceberg Cyber, we watch 4 key aspects of your business:

  • Employee Security: We watch your employee passwords and emails and will alert you immediately of stolen accounts. Quickly change your passwords so that hackers can't log in and pretend to be you.
  • Website Security: We monitor your websites to ensure that they are secure places for business. Protect the face of your company from ransom attacks and account takeovers.
  • Network Security: We monitor your network connections to prevent hackers across the globe. Stop hackers from being able to steal client files or shut down your workflow.

How Much Does Cyber Security Monitoring Cost?

It’s no secret: cyber security monitoring used to be expensive.

It is akin to hiring a security guard at the premise of your establishment, except digitally. Someone who is constantly on the job and monitoring for threats against the entire network.

This used to cost thousands of dollars per month, even for a small business of 5-10 employees. 

The good news is that Iceberg Cyber is changing all of that.
