Have a plan for protecting sensitive information

M&T has cyber threat detection tools to mitigate fraud risk and limit damage if a breach occurs.

How to detect cyber attaccks

Every small business needs an effective strategy for network threat detection. Cybercriminals use a variety of methods to attempt to gain access to computers and networks in order to steal sensitive data like financial information or passwords.

Common types of cyber attacks include phishing, social engineering, ransomware, spyware and many others. Cybercriminals are regularly developing new methods of fraud and becoming increasingly sophisticated with their scams. M&T has a multifaceted approach to cyber security detection that helps protect your business from a threat.

These tools include network and location perimeter protection, real-time continuous monitoring of security incidents, vulnerability and penetration testing and intrusion detection systems. We can help you build a plan to identify what information is sensitive, where it is stored, how it should be protected and what measures should be followed to secure it.

Educate your staff

We can help you teach your employees how to recognize and avoid common cyber attacks like phishing and social engineering. We’ll show you how to spot the irregularities that signify a cyber attack.
