Network and Security Audits for your School District, Business, or Law Firm

Curious what an IT network security audit could reveal about your organization?

Net56 has enhanced our menu of services to benefit any organization, large or small. Whether you have an in-house IT Department, or rely on consultants to manage your IT networks, this value-added service is worth your time and investment. For the first time, Net56 is offering a service that will provide you with a detailed look into your IT network and expose any flaws or security risks.
Since network security is an issue that will continue to make the top of headlines for some time to come, the CEO of Net56, Bruce Koch, decided it was time to offer a service to all organizations that would enable Net56 to analyze IT networks, inside and out, and then provide suggestions that would improve network functionality and increase security. Data breach is a term that even the biggest companies have become all too familiar with. It’s not just mobile devices in the workplace that can put you at a security risk (with or without the knowledge of an IT Department). There are a number of things that can put your IT network at a security risk and this assessment will reveal those things in an easy to understand format for you to use for planning, budgeting and migrations.

Can you honestly answer these questions?

  1. How secure is YOUR network?
  2. When is the last time YOUR network was audited?
  3. Do you have the documentation of that audit?
  4. Do you know what steps need to be taken to improve the findings?
  5. How soon will those issues be fixed? Before the next audit? Before the next data breach?
  6. When was the last time your IT staff provided a full report of the findings?
  7. Does your IT staff have the time and skilled resources to provide this service?

A Case Study in Disaster Recovery

This is a true story that took place in August 2011 with a Net56 client.

One of the schools in the Chicago Suburbs was having construction done in August 2011. When the workers were done for the day on Friday, a small area of the roof was open. Late Friday evening and early Saturday morning, a terrible rainstorm blew into the Chicago area. The rain came down in torrents and leaked into the room where the school servers were located. On Saturday, Net56 and the school’s technology director discussed how to address the problem, and Net56 was asked to return to the school on Sunday morning.

As requested, Don Robinson (COO) and the network engineer met with the technology director the next morning. The prognosis was not good. Water had run down the server rack and on to the servers. Testing revealed the servers were ruined. Sergey, the network engineer, removed the disk drives from all of the servers and returned to Net56 to begin the seemingly futile attempt to repair the equipment.

Sergey worked tirelessly throughout the day and night to recover the data from the disk drives, provision new servers in Net56’s datacenter, and then rebuild the servers with the recovered data. The amount of grit and dirt that had become embedded into the circuitry would not prevent the engineer from performing the miracle everyone thought impossible.

Very early Monday morning, all of the district’s servers were fully operational and all of the respective services were running and available to staff.

The real success part of this story is when staff arrived on Monday morning, there was no indication there had been any problem or outage over the weekend. All emails, software, and files were restored and nothing had been lost.
