As with any threat, its essential to understand from what and where you are at risk. Any company, regardless of location, size and turnover is at risk from cyber-attack and often these threats are as a result of staff or an outdated legacy infrastructure.
Vulnerabilities and threats often enter an organisation via the weakest link in the security chain; its employees.
The use of Social media in the workplace creates the ideal opportunity for attackers to access a network or system and the often unclear policy on use of corporate and home devices can leave an organisation open to attack.
An ageing legacy infrastructure, with a business wide internet connection leaves organisations wide open to cyber-attack via third party entry points to the network; VOIP, Video conferencing, wireless access control and CCTV are just a few examples.
Have you considered the critical and sensitive information that would be available if your network was penetrated by a cyber-attack; company data, finance information, employee or customers’ personal information. When you begin to understand the potential devastation an attack could cause to your organisation, both financially and reputably, a reliable, robust cyber security solution becomes an immediate requirement for every business.
