Security advice sounds a little crazy. You don’t really know what would actually help, or even how much you should care. But really bad things do happen all the time to real people, and people are losing more and more every year to internet criminals.
Have you ever lost your business overnight?
It happens more often than you think. And the loss is never immediate. Your business might continue for another year, but one bad decision or event can turn a company's future from success and growth to circling the drain.
One of the easiest ways to suddenly lose your business is from computer crime. Despite what CNN tells you, it's almost never because of evil Russian hackers. It happens in boring ways - the same scams as always, but now with computers.
In 2015, Ubiquiti, a successful company with enthusiastic customers lost $46 million because someone in their finance department got duped into sending it to the wrong bank account. It's even more common now.

Working with Dylan couldn’t have been easier! He helped us find security vulnerabilities we didn’t know about and taught us new ways of evaluating our risk — which will serve us for a long time to come. He made us feel very comfortable, and it was obvious that he had our best interests in mind.

Dylan’s process opened my eyes to some gaping security holes. His report and recommendation were not only easy to implement they were logical and earned buy-in from our team very quickly. Like an optometric exam, it corrected major faults in my view of the company that I didn’t even see before!
