About our Founder

Bergman Consulting Services was started in 2000 by John Bergman. At the time he was working as an IT Administrator for a large corporation. Having worked in the corporate world for 11 years, he decided the time was right to start his own business. For 2 years he built a client base and worked evenings and weekends while still keeping his "day job". In 2002, he took the leap and started working BCS full time. 

 

John still works daily with clients, some of whom have been with him since the beginning and are still served well today.

Full Customer Experience Service

Bergman Consulting Services started servicing clients in 2000 and has grown every year since, now boasting a base of over 100 clients, many that have been with us since those early years. We now have a diverse client base that spans dozens of different sectors in the business world, and employs anywhere from 5 employees up to 4,000 employees. 

 

As we continue to grow we also stay committed to our existing clients who have helped us grow throughout the years. We have and will always enjoy the relationships we have with them!

Latest Ransomware News

July 20th, 2021

TSA is about to announce new ransomware protection requirements for pipelines.

The Transportation Security Administration is today mandating that pipelines implement protections against ransomware and other cyberattacks, according to a statement shared with The Cybersecurity 202.

The action marks the first time the federal government has required specific cyber protections for pipelines. It comes in the wake of a May ransomware attack on Colonial Pipeline that disrupted gas supplies to the southeastern United States and prompted panic buying. In that case, the Russia-based hackers locked up Colonial’s computers for days until the company paid a $4.3 million ransom. 

previous directive from TSA in May required pipelines to report all cyber incidents affecting their computer systems to federal authorities. 

The new mandates are part of a dramatic rethinking of government’s role in protecting critical U.S. industries against cyberattacks after Colonial and a slew of other ransomware attacks exposed the ability of Russia-based cybercriminals to wreak havoc on the U.S. economy and national security.   -  Washington Post

While the attacks on our infrastructure are garnering the headlines, Ransomware attacks happen to all businesses, large and small.

 

Make sure you are running the newest version of ESET Antivirus, contact BCS if not or you are not sure. A higher end firewall is also suggested. Make sure you are on the lookout for suspicious emails. If you did not expect it, then it likely is not something you want to open.

 

While you can do a lot to help protect yourself, there is no fool-proof method of making sure you do not get infected by Ransomware. The only way to really protect yourself is offsite backup through BCS. We can take snapshots of your data dating back a year or more and make sure no data is lost if you do get infected.
