Service Desk's Cyber Attacks Prevention And Proactive Responses

SHARE THIS STORY | |

It’s impossible to put a monetary value on all of the data your company owns. Whether it’s thousands or millions of pounds, that won’t stop the attackers from having a go and trying to snatch your data and then they’ll probably have the audacity to demand payment in return. So, care and prevention is needed.

Sadly, cyber criminals don’t care about everyday businesses losing their data. They can swoop in when you least expect it and cause your entire infrastructure to crumble, leaving you with no way of accessing your data. You’ll be left watching your employees twiddling their thumbs as they can’t access files to complete their work and the downtime could significantly harm your business. You might have systems already in place to prevent attacks, but sometimes that’s just not enough as these pesky attackers continue to find new ways of breaching systems. That’s where Silverbug come in. The assurance Silverbug's service desk gives include:

 


Ransomware protection and recovery, along with general cyber attack issues, is just one string in our massive Silverbug bow. Essential security needs to be in place and your company needs a recovery plan, just in case you’re one of the unlucky ones that’s been hit by a cyber attack.

Silverbug are helping companies manage their IT security and it all starts with you getting in touch with the expert service desk who are ready to dive into action and keep you protected.

How The Silverbug Service Desk Works

Silverbug are an experienced team of IT professionals. The employees live and breathe IT and it’s their passion. Silverbug are also the 4th largest Microsoft Azure Partner in the UK and are dedicated to helping businesses like yours by keeping you safe from any attack. It doesn’t matter where you are either, as the service desk assists in managing IT security for companies in the UK, the US and beyond.

IT jargon can be daunting, and explaining your situation to the Silverbug service desk can be even more difficult but there’s no need to worry. The team won’t be overloading you with jargon and terminology that you won’t understand - the team speaks your language.

The service desk offers incident response, so as soon as your company has been hit by ransomware or a cyber attack, the service desk springs into action to isolate the threat. It doesn’t end there either, as the team searches to determine where it accessed your IT infrastructure and then they help you to recover your data, giving it the best chance of not happening again.

Along with keeping your company data protected against ransomware and other types of cyber attacks, the service desk and company in general helps keep your information safe from data leaks and employees who might try and attempt to steal your intellectual property.

The service desk can even arrange for a service engineer to come and provide hands-on support to rectify things if the worst has already happened. If the worst case scenario has been avoided, then the service desk prevent cyber attacks and ransomware from getting into IT systems in the first place, thanks to the three-pronged defence system. This is where Silverbug combines the power of three powerful technologies to add further support to your defence systems.

As you’ll be able to see in the image below, the KPI board is visible for the entire service desk to see and shows how it operates. It highlights factors such as how many agents are currently on call dealing with enquiries, feedback from clients, the statistics of the current month, the issues clients are having and need to be fixed, how many agents are waiting, or even the duration of the longest call. Every detail is highlighted on the KPI board to make sure no issue is missed and everything is suitably and promptly dealt with.

While the service desk cannot guarantee you that you won’t be hit by a cyber attack, they do offer the best backup disaster recovery on the market. Fortunately, you won’t have to close your whole operation for a week or give into the demands of an attacker to pay a ransom fee, as you can easily flick the ‘disaster recovery switch’ and the service desk will help get you back to work.

In fact, the service desk works so quickly that when a trading firm client suffered a disaster incident in the past 12 months, Silverbug’s service desk got them set up and working again in a neighbouring building within hours.
