16 Ways to Cybersecure Your Company

Why You Should Be Thinking About IT For Your Cannabis Startup

What is Cybersecurity?

Cybersecurity is the protection of computer systems from theft or damage to the hardware, software or the information on them, as well as from disruption or misdirection of the services they provide. Cybersecurity breaches can occur from a variety of sources, due to the increasing reliance on computer systems and the internet, wireless networks such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi – and the growth of “smart” devices including smartphones, televisions and tiny devices as part of the Internet of Things.

Walking in uncharted territory

You’re a pioneer in a new industry, with regulations, technology, and best practices that are constantly evolving. You’ve spent months planning, meeting and waiting. As you make your way through the weeds of starting a grow facility, cannabis dispensary or retail shop, we can provide the IT consulting and services necessary to ensure a successful roll out.

We understand, through working with our cannabis partners, that there is a massive amount of detail to manage to meet industry regulations that span seed-to-sale (audit trails, barcodes, scales, inventory management, etc.). When you consider specialized software that helps you stay compliant coupled with typical business technology basics like phone systems, computer networks, cybersecurity measures and your ERP system, it can be overwhelming.

We know the learning curve is steep and the products and vendors are many; let Machado Consulting help create, manage and protect your infrastructure, so you can stay focused on meeting your business goals. We've compiled a list of 8 IT Things You Should Consider for Your Cannabis Startup to help you get started.

          What We Do

          Our cybersecurity consultants, led by our Certified Information Security Systems Professional (CISSP) will run a comprehensive audit of your system, assess vulnerabilities and provide you with a plan to ensure that your infrastructure is taking every precaution to protect your networks, devices and data.

          • Vulnerability Assessment

            Your network will be assessed and analyzed. Vulnerabilities will be identified and our Certified Information Security Systems Professional (CISSP) led team will provide you with a thorough report and recommendations to strengthen your cyber environment.

          • Security Auditing

            Your current security measures and processes will be put to the test. Strengthening your organization’s security policies is an on-going process of development, implementation and validation.

          • Penetration Testing

            Our cybersecurity experts will stage a real world breach both internally and externally from the perspective of an attacker.

          • Social Engineering/Phishing Campaigns

            Your cyber defense is only as strong as your employee’s training. With your management’s permission, our cyber team will attempt to infiltrate via campaigns designed to impersonate legitimate contacts/businesses. This allows us to evaluate your employees’ susceptibility to phishing emails or copycat websites.
