With more aspects of everyday business carried out online, cyber security best practices are no longer limited to an office manager’s responsibility or delegated to the IT department. It’s everyone’s responsibility to safeguard business data, including confidential emails, customer records, payment information and anything which could compromise an individual or your business.
Threats can come from inside and outside of your business, at any time of the day or night. Rather than the threat coming from a local competitor, some businesses are targeted by International criminal gangs looking for easy targets to extract knowledge or resources. Instead of breaking down the door to steal PCs and laptops, the threat can come from a telephone call or an email.
Cyber attacks can come in the form of denial of service, slowing your Internet connection or taking your business offline. Viruses can infect your emails, files, memory sticks and transmit throughout an unprotected network in seconds. Malware can destroy applications and data and ransomware can be used to demand huge sums of money in exchange for unlocking your files.
Absolutely PC works with you to install edge security to protect your servers, PCs, laptops and tablets from harm before the threat reaches your users and your data. Prevention is better than cure and removing viruses, spyware, malware, spam and click-bait before they enter your network gives you the peace of mind your data is secure and protected from loss or damage.
