Regardless of the size of your business, cybercriminals target any vulnerable network. A single unprotected or improperly secured edge device can be all they need to access an entire system. Cyberattacks can occur in several different ways including internet-sourced hacking, malware, ransomware, and other dangerous methods that can damage your network and your reputation. Linked MSP specializes in helping small to medium sized businesses properly prepare and proactively protect their network and their assets.

As wineries and vineyards invest in new technologies to monitor and collect vital data through the grape growing and winemaking process, it is important to remember that any devices that connect to the network or the Internet are potential points of entry for cybersecurity threats. The same holds true in the tasting rooms and retail counters – wherever customer transactions occur. Linked MSP has served a number of California wineries in Sonoma County, Napa County, and throughout California. We understand the unique challenges for cybersecurity and data management that wineries face.

Tribal government and the gaming industry face significant threats to their data networks and are subject to compliance regulations. There are rigid standards and harsh penalties for non-compliance. Personal information, gaming operations, network infrastructure and company reputations could all be compromised, without appropriate cybersecurity measures in place. Key vectors include outdated software, incomplete administrative policies, weak passwords, lack of email filtering, and web content filtering. It is important to remember that people and culture are a vital part of proper security protocols.

With our track record of success with clients in this industry, Linked MSP is familiar with the unique challenges not only for the gaming industry but also for Tribal Governments, especially in California.

Water Districts

According to a recent article published by Berkeley Law,

“Water data has become quite a hot topic in California, and rightly so: throughout the state, decision-makers desperately need better information to guide their efforts to better manage this resource. Recent legislation has gotten us to the starting line, but how well new data platforms ultimately serve water management will depend on clear thinking and bold action during implementation.”

California’s Open and Transparent Water Data Act (AB 1755), passed in 2016, focuses on data integration and interoperability, with implications for Water Districts to “get up to speed” on managing their own data, so they can integrate with the state.

Linked MSP has worked with water districts and we understand not only the broad IT challenges water districts face to conform to California law, but also the day-to-day cybersecurity and data management challenges faced by water districts in our state.

Financial providers and Banks have several unique needs when it comes to needs for outsourced IT. They have special needs, in particular in three key areas:

1) Compliance. Banks have strict compliance regulations they must follow (e.g. GLBA, FISMA). Government entities impose rules to help ensure that customer data is protected, and crime is prevented. The FDIC has further requirements for compliance as well.

2) Security. Data security and cybersecurity are important for all companies in all industries. For banks, data security is even more crucial. Banks have among the most critical cyber needs for all industries.

3) Experience. Banking has specific software and digital infrastructure practices and needs Taking the time to train internal or external IT staff on how banking works and how to use the appropriate software can be a huge time commitment. Outsourcing IT support (some or all) to a company with banking experience, like Linked MSP, can reduce the learning time required in partnering with an outsourced IT partner.
