Up to 81% healthcare practices & small businesses lack budget and expertise to defend sensitive data (CIRA 2019). That is shocking. But this can change.
Anne Genge is CDM 2020 Global Cyber Defense Award Winner – ‘Most Innovative Woman in Cybersecurity.’ She is a Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP/C) with a specialization in small business and healthcare. In 2017 she Co-founded Alexio Corporation, now a National and Global Award-winning Cybersecurity firm.
In a recent article in Cyber Defense Magazine, Alexio Corporation’s CEO Anne Genge revealed how developing and mastering security automation has made her company a leader in robust yet affordable IT security.
Security automation has never been more relevant as millions of people have moved to working from home without the safeguards of corporate network security. In many cases they’re connecting with older hardware, and a wide array of (often non-compliant) methods of connecting remotely. Alexio is able to secure these remote workers using Alexio Defender quickly and affordably. Alexio provides an automated multi-layer approach to computer endpoint security virtually eliminating manual processes, labour, and the problems associated with variation of human talent.
“With cybercrime heading into the tens of billions of records stolen and potentially trillions of dollars in damages, we are proud to recognize Anne Genge as an award-winning innovator that offers a new approach to defeat these criminals”
– Pierlugi Paganini, Editor-in-chief, Cyber Defense Magazine.
“Alexio Corporation embodies three major features the judges look for to become winners: understanding tomorrow’s threats, today, providing a cost-effective solution and innovatingin unexpected ways that can help stop the next breach”
– Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine.
Data protection needs to happen regardless of the size of the organization. SME’s are a huge target with small IT resources. Ransomware alone has cost businesses billions of dollars. If antivirus worked, we would have far less cyber-crime. The world is more connected than ever, and cyber-attacks are conducted using sophisticated tools that can hit massive numbers of targets at the same time.
The attacks against us are automated so we must fight them with all the best tools including automation, machine-learning canary tokens, and AI. And, although there’s been more push towards cybersecurity training in organizations, over 90% of successful cyber-attacks are facilitated by human error. This means we need to protect things proactively, use tools to block silly mistakes, and have an efficient alert system for escalation when necessary.
Alexio Defender is available to dentists, physicians, psychologists, psychiatrists, chiropractors, physiotherapists, and other healthcare professionals. Additionally, we cater to other professions with sensitive data such as lawyers, accountants, financial planners, real estate, and small business owners who need to protect customer and client data.
Because Alexio has the agility to protect business data from wherever you’re working, it’s now Canada’s gold standard.
