14 Mar Your Greatest Vulnerability
The weakest link in your security is often the one you place the greatest trust in.
Your users unknowingly pose significant risk to your business and IT. Time and time again, we have seen businesses fall to the wayside as a result of human error, ransomware, viruses, phishing attacks, and poor security practices – all avoidable yet still prominent and crippling businesses globally.
Your IT is now the backbone of your company, with bad actors/hackers making a living from untrained staff and poorly protected IT.
No longer can businesses survive with an “it won’t happen to me mentality” – everyone is a target now, with many SMEs viewed as stepping stones to larger organisations. How long can you function without your IT?
Official findings from the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) highlight the prevalence of phishing and human error in reported data breaches. Click here to view article.
So how do you mitigate the risk?
A multilayered approach is industry best practice – in the same sense that you (hopefully) have locks on the front door, back door and windows of your house – your IT approach should be no different.
By using a combination of enterprise grade, class leading technology you can greatly reduce your risk and exposure to such incidents.
Our recommendation is always to implement an integrated security solution, endpoint antivirus, as well as a suitable backup and disaster recovery solution.
