Cyber Security

Complete cyber security for your business in Rochester, NY

Building Your IT Security Plan

How do you protect your business from cyber attacks?

As a business owner, you rarely take a break. Unfortunately, neither do hackers. They work 24/7 trying to steal your data, and small- medium-sized businesses are the most at risk of cyber attacks, even in Rochester. In today’s data-driven age, cyber security is more important than ever.

Stay protected with multi-layered cyber security defense

Having an IT Security Plan is critical in protecting business data.

Multi-Layered IT Security

The threat of an attack is constantly changing, so we focus on multiple layers of information security and protection. We start with a strong network perimeter including managed firewall, active network management, and periodic network inspections. Then we add on proactive monitoring of your systems, including anti-malware and anti-virus software, DNS filtering, and anti-spam protection.

Advanced Security

Talk to CMIT about Advanced IT Security which could include Advanced Threat Detection, encryption, log monitoring with 24/7 remediation, etc.


And, we always recommend you invest in security training for you and your staff; your team is your first and best line of defense when it comes to protecting your business’ data.

Meet compliancy requirements - protect your business

The NIST Framework is the foundation of IT Security Compliance.

The Foundation

Today’s companies are under constant threat and many industries are adopting IT security compliance regulations.  The Healthcare Industry led the pack with HIPAA by setting standards that medical offices and health professionals needed to meet to protect their patients’ data.  Today, many other industries are following suit.  To understand the foundation, one can look to NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology).

The NIST Framework Core is a set of activities, outcomes and references that detail approaches to aspects of cyber security. The core comprises five functions, which are subdivided into 22 categories (groups of cyber security outcomes) and 98 subcategories (security controls).  We work with our clients to help them understand this framework and how it applies to their businesses.

NY Shield Act

Regardless of what industry your business is in, if you are in New York (or do business in New York), you most likely need to comply with the NY Shield Act.  Understanding how this Act applies to your business and building an IT strategy that meets these requirements is part of doing business in NY.  CMIT can help guide you through the requirements and identify gaps as well as build a plan to close those gaps.  We’ll give your business the tools you need to remain compliant (and protect your data).

The 5 Functions

As mentioned above, the NIST Framework has 5 functions:


Know what data you have and where it is.  What is it that you need to protect?


What elements do you have in place to protect the data – to keep the bad guys out?


And, how will you know if someone broke through your layers of protection?  Will you know if there is an intruder?


And, once detected – do you have a response plan.  How will you minimize the threat?


Getting back to business…do you have plans and systems in place for you to return to business?
