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 and you’ll receive a complimentary £10 shopping voucher too!
Many cyber experts are now of the opinion that attacks or data breaches are inevitable and no business or organisation, regardless of size is immune, as indicated by the recent admission from Dixons Carphone group that up to 10 million records were hacked last year . Cyber terrorists can cause immense damage, affecting the stability and future well-being of the organisation. Identifying where your business may be vulnerable becomes an important consideration. A Pen or Penetration Test will find all the gaps and access points, giving you the opportunity to increase your security and stop intrusions.

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.

With the dramatic increase in cyber attacks, the growth in ransomware and the forthcoming GDPR regulations, the necessity for businesses to fully protect their networks, endpoints and data has never been so critical. This was the core of the messaging that Andy James of Custodian360 delivered to over 70 attendees at the First Friday Club network event at the Cote Brasserie in Reading on Friday 6th April.
‘Protect your endpoints’ is the key message from all the IT security experts and with good reason. With all of us having so many devices – mobiles, smartphones, tablets, laptops, desktops, etc – the cyber attack or data breach threat is broader than ever and this fractured approach works in the cyber criminals’ favour. Many solution providers claim to have a product that can defeat or prevent an attack but few can claim total protection. One that can is McAfee©, arguably the most recognised IT security brand and market leader in Endpoint Security.
Now we’re not ones to scare monger but when the head of the UK’s National Cyber Security Centre says that a major cyber attack on the UK is only a matter of time then that seems pretty serious to us! Ciaran Martin who runs the Security Centre suggests that the lessons learned from the malicious cyber activity in 2017 indicates that more cyber disruption is on its way.
So as a business owner or IT professional, what can you do to make sure you’re organisation is not in the firing line?
