Small Business Are Now Targets

You may be surprised to learn that small businesses are often targeted by cyber criminals.

Criminals target SMB's because they know that most small business fail to invest in adequate IT security measures, which makes them easy targets.

It is also easier for a cyber criminal to take many small "scores" and sell that data, than to pull off a large breach.

Client Testimonials

"We hired TUCU for an independent Network Security Audit to help us gain insight into some concerns we had. We received a thorough written recommendations report from them that helped us undertake immediate upgrades and has us thinking about our future needs. TUCU worked well with our existing IT and software providers to get the job done. Working with them was painless, and as a result, it makes it easy to recommend them to anyone looking for network security support. "

FAQ's about IT Consulting & Assessment Services

Which businesses need an IT audit?

The world's leading security analysts recommend that every business, regardless of size or industry, perform in depth IT reviews every 1-3 years.  They also recommend that every business owner either be a certified IT professional, hire a certified IT professional(s), or outsource It services to certified IT providers, because IT management requires in depth knowledge, skill and experience.

What is the difference between a free consultation and an IT audit?

A free consultation is a conversation about needs. We answer all your questions, and can often provide a detailed estimate for your needs.

An IT audit is a hands on, in depth assessment of your current setup, security gaps, failure points, as well as a conversation about your needs.

An audit also includes technical reports.

At TUCU, we take it further, and take the time to draft an Executive Summary in plain English for you. This plain English report is your IT plan for the next 3-5 years. All issues are laid out, with recommended actions to take immediately, over the next 6 months, 1 year and 5 years. All hardware and software purchasing links are included. A 1 hour IT consultation by phone is included to answer all your questions. You can perform updates yourself, hire any provider, or hire TUCU to perform the work for you.

Other companies offer a free assessment. Do you?

Free assessments are a sales tactic to get a foot in the door. We don't use high pressure sales tactics. We focus on building partnerships with companies who understand the value of IT, as every business today runs on technology.

Schedule your free consultation to discover how we can help you.

How long will my IT audit take?

Every audit varies, depending on the number of devices and accounts to be audited, the age of the devices, how well maintained they are, etc.  On average, each server takes 75 minutes, and each computer takes 20 minutes.  We will take additional time to sit with you for your initial IT consultation.  Once we have gathered all the necessary information, we will return to our offices and begin preparing your Executive Summary Report and purchasing links and deliver them to you via email within 2-5 business days. We can then schedule your follow up phone consultation to answer your questions about your cyber security audit findings.
