Cyber & Online Security
GPS Security Group offers cyber security and IT security solutions for companies in Western Canada. GPS is one of Canada’s premier providers of cyber security services.
We are dedicated to assisting organizations in protecting their data and technology infrastructure while also mitigating risk. We take a proactive approach in monitoring client network environment(s) and providing regulatory compliance. We have partnerships with some of the most trusted companies and institutions in the security sector. Additionally, we also consult with provincial and federal government bodies to ensure our services meet the latest cyber security standards.
Let us be your virtual chief information security officers. Should your organization lack a CISO, we have a flexible and scalable solution. This role is not always fulfilled, even though it can be mission critical. It isn’t always due to lack of budget either; it is actually difficult to put together a team of skilled IT security professionals. GPS offers a virtualized solution that not only addresses threats but also adequately meets the security demands of modern organizations. With our head office in Edmonton, we offer security services throughout western Canada.
Let us augment your company’s IT team
You may have an in-house IT team; they may already be burdened with other tasks or may not have the cyber security service background needed to completely protect your full range of applications, devices and network infrastructure. GPS Security Group’s CyberSecurity-as-a-Service model is a cost-effective solution that can be readily implemented.
Our Cybersecurity-as-a-Service offering consists of the following:
- CISO support and/or virtual CISO services
- Infrastructure control and IT security (intrusion protection and detection, and end-point protection)
- Security information and event management (SIEM)
Cyber security, Risk Management and Compliance
The vast majority of organizations are vulnerable to intrusions and cyber attacks. To increase your protection against cyber security threats, there are two primary approaches:
- Improve Visibility of all Endpoints on your Network: by improving the ability to see the activity of the endpoints of your technology infrastructure, you can effectively monitor devices for intrusion and unusual behavior.
- Increase Controls and Protocol: the ability to make a proper assessment and identification of threats can improve operational readiness. It takes the right mix of skill, procedures, training and security tools to create a security-aware work environment.
Is my organization vulnerable to cyber threats?
Each year, on average 70% of all Canadian organizations will have their technology infrastructure attacked or compromised in some manner. These attacks typically aim at hardware, software, firmware, employee-owned devices or BYODs (Bring Your Own Devices), internet applications and APIs. Additionally, cyber attacks can occur through ‘social engineering’ – targeting staff and other users on the network. Small and large institutions alike are vulnerable to ransomware, malware, and DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks.
Your best strategy is to be prepared. GPS Security Group’s managed IT services can provide your organization with cyber security and additional services required to thrive in today’s technological landscape. Ask us about our risk assessment and protection services.
