Change can be hard, but it is necessary. 

We have been able to shoulder the increase in labor, material, and product costs through out 2020 and the first half of 2021, to try and shield our customers as much as possible, however, the time has come, and we need to make a change.

HERE’S WHAT YOU
NEED KNOW

 

Two things are on the rise: the cost of doing business and the number of organizations being hit by cyber criminals. Today the following are now simply commonplace:

    Rising Labor Costs

    Product Shortages = Increase Purchase Price

    Inflation Pressures

    Ransomware

    Identity Theft

    Password Breaches

    Phishing

    Our Plan is Simple: 

    Effective October 1st First Call will be instituting a mandatory change in price due to cost pressures in both labor and materials.

    We will also be adding three new cybersecurity services to all clients over the course of the next several months.

    Cyberattacks are getting more sophisticated by the minute. With
    human errors inevitable and data breaches obliterating businesses,
    organizations transitioning to remote work need stronger
    cybersecurity for decentralized workspaces.

    Your weakest link against security threats? Your employees.

    80% of all organizations experience at least one compromised account threat per month.

    67% of data breaches are a result of credential theft, human error or social attack.

    Phishing attacks have shot up by 67% since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    HERE’S WHAT ARE

    WE ADDING.

    There are essential changes we are implementing for all of our clients to better defend their businesses and employees!

    Security Awareness Training

    Your employees are more likely to grasp and adhere
    to training if it is engaging and informative. Short,
    animated explainer videos and quizzes provide an
    efficient and measurable learning environment.

     

    Simulated Phishing

    Test simulations that mimic real-life phishing
    and business email compromise attacks can be
    launched as often as desired and automatically
    staggered to prevent employees from receiving
    the emails all at the same time.

     

    Dark Web Monitoring

    Our 24/7 Dark Web monitoring solution provides you critical alerts should your business domain or employee credentials be discovered on the Dark Web.

    The earlier you know about these compromises
    making your network and data vulnerable to hackers, the faster you can take actions, such as resetting passwords or identifying security
    gaps and resolve them.

    STILL HAVE QUESTIONS?

    We get it, price increases are never fun, but they are necessary at times. 

    Please do not hesitate to reach out to your account VCIo to review any other questions or concerns that you have.
