Information Technology Module



In our recent SME Ponemon survey, we asked about emerging threats in the next 12-24 months. Ninety-eight percent (98%) of small business said that an accidental download of malware, virus, worm...would occur and would penetrate their network.  

Information Technology Module

The Information Technology Module provides important proactive prevention technologies to help stop breaches from occurring. It is combined with other prevention components that collectively make up the Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum Level Risk Mitigation benefits, which are combined with breach expense protection. Certainly, taking proactive steps to reduce risks is important. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. However, with data thefts being difficult to stop, it is also important to have financial protection in place before a breach actually occurs. That way, when a breach does occur, the protection can help ensure that you actually survive the breach. 

There are numerous technologies that exist to support your information security and computer operating needs. With our BIZLock programs, we feel it is vitally important to not only increase your education on certain "layered" technologies, but also provide you with select layers and help you understand where, how and why these and other layered technologies are relevant. While our deliverables help mitigate risks, by any means, they are not all encompassing. We aim to help you locate these layered technologies and/or provide access to purchase certain technologies from one or several sources. In some cases, the best solution might be a free download or an existing technology solution already bundled together with your program.

We provide various risk mitigation benefits and levels of corresponding breach expense protection. Our lowest cost program provides Basic Risk Mitigation benefits and is followed by our increasingly more robust Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum levels. The following programs have different levels of benefits. (Please note: Not all program options may be available or presented as an option to you)

Computer security is often referred to and viewed as an ‘onion’. The onion has multiple layers. At the core of the onion resides your information. To protect the core, you need to consider the various layers of the onion or security that will help your business identify vulnerabilities and defend against the threats. In all cases, we recommend that you only engage technology modifications or deployments with the assistance of an information technology professional. Your I.T. professional will know whether or not it is acceptable to use technologies different than those we use or present.

* Breach Expense Protection is provided solely in conjunction with our Risk Mitigation Benefits that comprise the HR Module, Information Security Module and above prevention technology resources and tools. It is, at all times, subject to the terms and conditions of our Customer Agreement.
