Never Has DATA Been so Important
Network security is imperative for any business that operates via an IT infrastructure – particularly if you are handling sensitive customer or client information – and it’s therefore important to remember that it is not only viruses and malware alone that can put your business at risk. There is also a risk of hacking or exploitation in your software and infrastructure – and as you never truly know when or why such an attack is likely to take place, it’s crucial that you arrange for the best in network security and preventative measures to ensure that you are able to both protect and recover from such problems.
Some well-publicised security breaches of big companies in 2015 illustrate the potential impact to companies for not taking computer security seriously.

VirusesViruses can get into your system by numerous ways. Most commonly they are downloaded from the internet or opened up from emails. They can also enter your systems by USB sticks and CDs. Part of what a virus will do is look to copy itself onto these types of media. The human operating an infected PC could be completely unaware that the USB drive they have copied some spreadsheets on to, has also picked up an extra program. When the USB is inserted into the next computer, the virus is copied over and the infection spreads. This can all be automatic and below the human radar.
