October marks the start of Cyber Security Awareness Month, which aims to raise awareness of cyber threats and how to keep yourself safe online.
Today’s world is more connected that ever, and while the internet makes most of our lives a whole lot easier, it also comes with its risks. Cyber Security Awareness Month is the perfect time for businesses to reflect on these risks and put measures in place to prevent them.
Recent government statistics show that two thirds of businesses have been affected by a cyber-attack in the past year, with nearly 70% of these attacks involving spyware, viruses or malware.
In fact, just last month it was reported that hackers had stolen data from 50 million Yahoo users, one of the biggest data breaches in history. It’s believed that about 8 million of these accounts were UK users.
In many cases, cyber-attacks can be prevented with the appropriate security system in place.
At San-It we use the best available technology to provide our customers with the latest IT security systems. These systems will keep you one step ahead of hackers and anyone with malicious intent.
When you work with us, you can rest assured that your networks will stay secure in the face of increasingly sophisticated attacks. We understand that for many businesses, IT security is absolutely critical and a breach can take your systems down, often without any warning. An attack could leave your business vulnerable, allowing hackers to access your data and use it for criminal purposes or leaking confidential information into the public domain.
Some of our main security services include:
- Two factor authentication
- Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance
- Password servers
- Web content filtering
