Most people think that security is all about stopping Internet hackers, and while this is an important aspect, network intrusions from unknown sources only account for 5% of security breaches. It’s essential that networks are designed with external and internal measures to control access and that, as with all business networks, these safeguards are unique to your company.

Another important part of IT security is disaster recovery. In the unfortunate and inevitable circumstance of a hardware failure, power surge, damage, theft, viruses, trojans or malicious software, it is vital that you have a disaster recovery plan in place. A good plan will be tested and updated regularly: checking and restoring off-site backups to ensure they work as expected.

IT Security is a broad specialism which encompasses areas such as wireless network security, internal data breaches, data protection, encryption and network firewalls; too much to cover here. Please contact us to discuss it further.
