Protecting your data against online threats

M&T can help you prepare for cyberattacks with the tools you need to protect yourself.

Network security for small businesses

Certain cybercriminals target small businesses because they know there is likely to be less security than at a larger company. To avoid being a victim, you need a defense strategy and the tools to carry it out. M&T Bank can help.

Our multifaceted approach to small business network security includes network and location perimeter protection, real-time continuous monitoring and detection of security incidents, vulnerability and penetration testing and intrusion-detection systems.

Have a plan

It’s not if cybercriminals will target your small business, but when. M&T can help you build a plan to identify what information is sensitive, where it is stored, how it should be protected and what measures should be followed to secure it. It’s not difficult, but it is critical.

Educate your staff

You and your employees need to know how to recognize and avoid common cybercrimes like phishing and social engineering. Be suspicious of any unexpected or unsolicited emails, texts or phone calls.

Consider insurance

If you would carry auto insurance for company vehicles, you should consider cyber insurance if you’re doing business online. Just one data breach could be catastrophic if you don’t have protection.


Fraud Detection & Prevention

Our resources can teach you and your staff how to recognize the signs of fraud and best practices for processing credit card transactions, avoiding suspicious hyperlinks, paying invoices, and much more. Learn more about fraud detection & prevention.
