Pulse Technology’s free eBook a guide to cybersecurity for businesses

Schaumburg-based Pulse Technology, a company serving the IT, managed print services and other needs of businesses throughout the Midwest and beyond, has released a free eBook, “The Ultimate Guide: Cybersecurity for Business.”

The 17-page book is written by the IT experts at Pulse Technology.

“We know how important cybersecurity is to every business owner,” said Chip Miceli, president and CEO of Pulse Technology. “Every company needs to make it a top focus to protect their systems, programs and networks from digital attacks. We receive questions all the time about cybersecurity issues, and we believe that our book will provide a quick, at-a-glance look at the basic terminology of cybersecurity.”

The book is easy to read and provides a comprehensive “quick look” into the world of cybersecurity. It breaks down cybersecurity terms into plain English, and offers actionable steps employees and business can take to secure their data networks.

It covers a number of key topics important to securing a company’s network, including:

  • How to create a secure password
  • How to identify phishing emails
  • The importance of multifactor authentication
  • Should you use a public Wi-Fi network?
  • Should you allow USB and Bluetooth devices to be connected to your company network?
  • What is an SQL injection attack?
  • What are the types of tests that a company can undertake to determine its vulnerabilities?

Statistics show 43% of all cyberattacks target smaller businesses and 60% of businesses which experience a significant data loss due to a cyberattack go out of business within six months.

“We enjoy conversations with business owners who have questions about cybersecurity, and encourage anyone who has one to contact us,” Miceli said. “And as a great additional step for anyone who’s looking for a quick and easy-to-understand reference guide, we encourage you to take advantage of our free offer.”
