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.

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. How confident are you that you and your colleagues can go online safely and not inadvertently provide access to malware that could cause disastrous consequences to your network or data? Consider a comprehensive Web Security solution from AVR which will give you complete protection with totally uninhibited, transparent user access.
‘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.
How would businesses and organisations run without email? In truth they would struggle or grind to a halt. Email is without doubt the most widely used business communications tool and we use it instinctively. However it has become one of the most effective routes for cyber attacks to penetrate a network or a sensitive data leak to cause a breach. Securing the email gateway is a vital requirement. Today. businesses must be able to manage the flow of sensitive information and appropriately secure it to protect the value and reputation of their brands. They must also comply with current and forthcoming data protection regulations, while enabling the business to be productive at the same time. So a solution that could automatically protect critical data, remove only the content that breaks company policies and sends the rest of the email onward would be ideal, right? We have the answer!
