What Is CyberSecurity?

Cybersecurity is not a single product, but a goal for your business. Strong cybersecurity starts with a sound strategy.

Cybersecurity is the protection of your networks, data, and devices from unauthorized users and security threats. Without proper protection, hackers can destroy, alter, and lock your systems, compromising your data.

In a digital world, technology becomes more advanced, and so do hackers. Your system's protection must run at the same advanced level.

At Blade, we understand how your business works. We know that protecting your assets starts with evaluating your systems and identifying potential risks.

Is there a plan in place for if, or when, a data breach might occur? How can anomalous activity easily access our systems?

Our cybersecurity experts provide a complete risk assessment, but also implement protective measures for your network. Proper monitoring and maintenance services are also included.

There are many factors that go into our advanced cybersecurity services. Blade works with you to achieve peace of mind for your business.


Examples of Cyber Threats Impacting St. Louis Businesses

From small business to big business, everyone needs cybersecurity protection. Hackers will look for windows of opportunity no matter the size of an organization. There are a wide variety of threats that could impact your business if you’re not properly prepared.



Ransomware is one of the most common cybersecurity threats. Ransomware is a type of malware that threatens to block network and system data until a ransom is paid. Usually, if the ransom isn't paid, the data is threatened to be gone.

While larger companies might be a more obvious target, even small to medium-sized companies can be a victim. It's important to not pay the ransom and reach out for expert advice from Blade first.

Malware & Viruses

Malware and viruses are very similar but do have some differences. Malware is any kind of malicious software, whereas a virus is a type of malware.

Viruses attach to programs and files and quickly spread throughout your entire network. They're commonly attached to emails and can wipe data and system functions.


Online Fraud & Phishing Scams

Phishing is a very prevalent threat to businesses, particularly through emails. Phishing is usually an email that looks like it's from a reputable source. Often, it's online fraud, and not the real deal.

Most phishing scams ask for company information, such as financial information or passwords. If given, this can result in a data breach or loss of money.

Wi-Fi Security

In the very wireless world we live in, it's very important to be aware of Wi-Fi threats. Ensuring your network is password protected is one of the easiest and best ways to prevent unwanted users.

Hackers can also enter networks through hotspots and public Wi-Fi networks, so employee training is essential. If your team understands the risks of public Wi-Fi, they'll be more alert.


DDoS Attacks

A distributed denial-of-service, or DDoS, attack is an attempt to disrupt a network's traffic. The attack bombards your server with a huge amount of traffic, so your network crashes. The attacks make your website unusable, so your users are then denied service.

Some of the more common industries that face DDoS attacks are financial services, telecom, gaming, and retail.
