There’s so much information now about the likelihood of being the victim of a cyber attack or data breach but what are the real chances of it happening? Sadly, the odds are uncomfortably high. Each day there is a new story and whilst writing, the news is being released of the British Airways website breach with almost 400,000 personal records stolen which will cause major disruption and inconvenience to the airline and its passengers. So to put cyber threats in perspective, AVR has produced this fun infographic which we hope you will find of interest.
Let’s face it, a cyber attack or data breach is no laughing matter! Most IT security experts believe attacks are inevitable and are urging us to ‘Protect your endpoints’ with good reason. With so many devices in use; mobiles, smartphones, tablets, laptops, desktops, etc., the threat of a cyber attack or data breach is sadly more likely than ever, but do you know how much your business or organisation might be at risk? World leading Endpoint Security company McAfee™ can help you assess your risk with an Endpoint Protection Survey or Free IT Health Check.
How safe is it to surf the Web? The internet is such a vital tool for personal and business use yet the threat of cyber attack or data breach from web based malware or phishing threats is higher than ever.

In its regular quarterly survey of UK telecommunications, Ofcom is consistently reporting that the traditional landline is in serious decline. People are choosing mobiles as their primary means of voice communication as they see them to be more convenient and efficient. This trend is visible in both personal and business communications, with some companies, such as the accountancy giant PwC publicly announcing a wholesale move to mobile.
Mobiles provide the convenient ‘one stop’ point of communication that many find attractive. With easy online access and the availability of millions of mobile apps to assist with managing workloads its easy to see why the move to mobile will gain pace. The question is though, is your organisation fit and ready to give control to mobiles? Do you have processes to ensure all mobiles are secure and access to valuable business data is controlled? If you are serious about Mobile Device Management and would like expert advice on the solution, AVR’s FREE 10 Steps to Mobility Success E-Book can help to guide you in creating a platform that can help take your business to the next level.
