In the digital age, the cost of neglecting cybersecurity can far exceed any investment in protection. On-Site PC Services is dedicated to helping its clients safeguard their data through comprehensive security awareness training, phishing simulations, and robust backup solutions.

A legacy of excellence

Since 2001, On-Site PC Services has provided a wide range of IT services to businesses in the Dallas-Fort Worth metro and across the U.S. Founder Brian Davis said as cyber threats evolve, the need for cybersecurity continues to increase as well.

How to spot phishing

Phishing is a prevalent issue that On-Site PC Services actively works to prevent. It occurs when an email that appears to be from a reputable source asks the recipient to reveal personal information, such as a password or credit card number. Phishing is not merely an inconvenience; it can be a significant threat to businesses.

On-Site PC Services' proactive approach involves simulating phishing attacks to identify vulnerabilities, educating employees and strengthening businesses against real threats. The team tracks how many employees opened the email, how many employees clicked on links and then brings a report to the business owner.

Tips to identify phishing emails:
  • Look for misspelled words and grammatical errors.
  • Check the sender’s email address. It may closely resemble a legitimate address but contain minor differences.
  • Look out for emails that include a last minute request, outside of normal practices.
  • Be suspicious of requests that are outside of the norm, and err on the side of caution. A phone call to the sender for verification is always your best bet.
The importance of education

Davis said he’s seen his clients gain a better understanding of what phishing is and how to spot it after working with On-Site PC Services.

“We know that it's working when a client will forward us an email saying, ‘Is this legitimate?’ because that user a year ago may not have done that,” Davis said. “It's creating awareness. It's making sure that they stop and think before they click.”

Safeguarding your business

In addition to phishing simulations, On-Site PC Services offers dark web monitoring, which checks a client’s domain and alerts staff if any personal information is compromised. Staff then alert the client and recommend changing their password. In addition, On-Site PC Services' spam filtering technology helps to mitigate threats before they reach the user's inbox.

On-Site PC Services also helps clients develop comprehensive backup solutions to ensure data recovery in the event of a breach.

“Whether it’s physical or virtual, ensuring solid backups is a core focus for us,” Davis said. “I couldn’t sleep at night if I didn't know that each client had bulletproof backups of their data, that could be recovered quickly.”
