Do I really need to worry about Cyber Security?

Cyber security protects all your IT systems — including computers, servers, mobile devices, electronic systems, programs, networks — from external and internet thefts or damage to their hardware, software, or electronic data.Without up-to-date cyber security in place, it isn’t a matter of IF but more like how soon and how much damage your security will be compromised along with the impact on your business.

Pyramid of Cyber Security – The best cyber security practices focus on people, processes, and technology.

  1. Password Management & 2Factor Authentication – The easiest way to protect your business valuables online is to have a password management system in place including 2Factor authentication.
  2. Networking – Networking is the process of creating and using computer networks in harmony with hardware, protocols and software, including wired and wireless technology
  3. Anti-virus & Anti-malware – Zero Day threats are a major concern for today’s business so protecting yourself online involves protecting both software and hardware.
  4. Cyber Security Audit – All Businesses are going digital which increases their Technology footprint plus their risk of being targeted in cyberattacks.
