Cyber Threats…Ransomware…Shadow IT…Spear Phishing…Data Breach…Stealth Attacks…Spoofing…Tampering…Repudiation…Eavesdropping…over recent times, many of these words and terms have sadly become too familiar.
All businesses and organisations will at some point be affected by a cyber-attack. Ensuring you have the right, comprehensive protection to identify the threat, protect your data and continue operation is vital. This is where AVR can help, by providing expert, no-obligation assistance on the best solution for your business or organisation.
Sensitive, confidential and personal business information can still in many cases be too easily accessed. Antivirus software and firewalls may be in place, alongside systems and processes but cyber attackers are still finding success in spreading their malware. A recent 2018 UK Government survey found that 43% of UK firms identifying breaches in the last 12 months. See the summary here: CSBS_2018_Infographics_-_General_Findings
Small and medium sized businesses are particularly vulnerable to cyber crime as many mistakenly feel their size stops them being prime targets and do not invest in threat protection solutions or introduce preventative measures to protect themselves.
The real challenge, particularly for many non-technical people is how to find the best IT solutions to work with their business models? How can they be sure they’re not being sold software that is inappropriate, inadequate or overly expensive and will not meet their requirements as their business grows and develops?
What is Cyber Security?
Cyber Security or Threat Protection covers a number of areas including Endpoint Security, Anti-Virus, Firewalls, Data loss Prevention, Email Security and others. With today’s sophisticated attacks, Next Generation or Advanced Threat Protection is being adopted by many organisations as it can predict or identify threats and destroy or nullify them before they can do any damage. The type of threat protection your organisation requires will depend on your own unique situation including the number of endpoints and what security your already have in place.
