Assessing the Risk

Leaving your organisation unguarded can make you vulnerable in more ways than you think.  The end result is always a financial loss but as criminals generate new ways to penetrate your systems, you have to appreciate the time and effort it takes to get you back up and running and what the ultimate cost could be.

 

Your operations could be disabled entirely, with all the consequences that entails.  Your customers could lose confidence in you if it becomes public knowledge and it may affect your ability to obtain new business.

 

The consequences can be severe, long lasting and sometimes even permanent; it’s better to get ahead of the game and be proactive instead of reacting to disaster.

 

It will be our job to help you ensure you make the correct decisions for your organisation’s data and system security to enable you to achieve your operational goals.

Avoiding the Risk

The most effective method of IT security is to prevent any breaches of your systems to begin with.

 

Working in partnership with our clients, we aim to make IT security an integral technical part of their systems from the start.  We will ensure that it isn’t an afterthought when it comes to an organisations planning and everyday operations.

 

Aside from the technical approach, one of the biggest risks to any system are the users of that system.  Passwords left in plain view, short and guessable passwords, sensitive information gained from conversations, viruses from foreign storage media, unlocked workstations and lost or stolen laptops and devices.

 

Social engineering, the physical gleaning of information, is one of the most productive stages to any hackers attempt at systems access.  Part of our IT Security service will be to educate users about the importance of preventative practices on their part.
