ABOUT THE RYSK GROUP:
Facebook. Equifax. Yahoo. Cambridge Analytica. Uber. eBay. Target. Chase. Playstation. What do these companies have in common? They were all victims of some of the biggest cyber security breaches and attacks in the last decade.
Cyber Security might just be a trending buzz phrase to some, but our team lives, breaths and executes cyber and information security on a daily basis. Formed by a group of security engineers with over 30 years of combined experience working with both private corporations and government agencies in the areas of cyber security, networking, infrastructure and systems and networks administration, The Rysk Group has the experience needed to not only respond to security threats and breaches, but also mitigate their effects on your company and, in some cases, even prevent them altogether.
Cyber criminals, malicious insiders, foreign governments, business rivals, "hack-tivists", and even curious individuals with technical knowledge, all present a threat. And now that cyber crime has become a multi-billion dollar enterprise, threats to the business world are only becoming more common and malicious.
The most effective way to mitigate this threat is through a three-tiered approach: end user-training, regular backups, and effective ingress filtering, and The Rysk Group is here to help your company implement this defense. In infosec, there is always a new threat on the horizon, and we diligently study the risk environment so we can provide you with effective, timely and necessary solutions.
