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. The loss of reputation and the faith of your customers and suppliers can have a detrimental effect on your business, not to mention the loss of earnings through severely-reduced productivity.

Viruses

Viruses 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.

What Can be Done?

One of the most common security breaches for SMEs and larger companies alike is vicious little computer programmes called viruses. A basic computer virus is a program that replicates itself numerous times and hides amongst your core files and directories. They are very difficult to get rid of manually. Basic viruses do little more than slow your systems down, but more sophisticated ones can push advertising popups, access your mailbox and start emailing your contacts with infected emails or spam. Some viruses are even clever enough to start stealing information from you.

Wireless

We also focus on the sensitivity of your wireless network. Wireless networks, unless secured and set up with adequate ID and password encryption, can be left wide open for backdoor attacks and manipulation of any data that you transfer – meaning that your information could be less private than you think. As part of a security audit, we can analyse the strength of your WAN setup and implement further network security measures that will prevent any unwanted intrusion from taking place.

Systems

Another area to consider is the security of your hardware and server configuration – are your systems and data backed up and secured away with recommended-strength passwords or encryption? How easy can an outsider break into your sensitive data and records? It doesn’t bear thinking about – but we have partnered with Kaspersky to not only provide industry-standard monitoring and threat scanning but to also analyse every last inch of your operation’s security measures – therefore allowing us to make recommendations, and, with your blessing, implement them.
