There is a growing risk to businesses from cyber threats.
Cyber security is about “Protecting Business Information from Damage or Loss” by reducing the risk of a cyber attack and implementing methods of recovery in the event of a “breach”.
The IT industry is spending more and more effort to reduce the impact on businesses with new and improved products and services to keep pace. In short, the security landscape is constantly changing with businesses revenues and reputations being damaged at an ever-growing rate. The risks to businesses are amplified by the increased demand for mobile and home working with requirements to access information and services from multiple devices.
The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) (The UK’s independent authority on cyber security) have said – Every organisation is a potential victim. All organisations have something of value that is worth something to others, every organisation connected to the Internet should assume they will be a victim.
It is clear that the confidentiality & integrity of businesses data needs to be maintained so that it can be relied on. In addition, there are legal and moral obligations that need to be adhered to as well as needing to avoid any adverse impact on the business.
It is for this reason that we have worked hard to secure our own IT infrastructure and have been Cyber Essentials Plus Certified so our clients can be sure that we have good security measures in place.
