What Is IT Security, And Why Is It Important
IT Security is a catch all term used to encompass the many different ways business data can be compromised by hackers, phishing attempts and even malicious loss of data. Over 60 million phishing emails are sent every day, in the UK, and it’s a problem that has increased during the recent global pandemic.
What is Phishing
Often used by hackers and scammers, ‘Phishing’ is regularly deployed over email. The user will get, what looks like, a legitimate email (it isn’t) from an online service, asking them to login to verify some details, claim a reward or something equally exciting. They’ll be redirected to a website that has been built to look exactly like the real one (it isn’t) where they’ll enter their login details for the internet villains to copy and use for themselves.
Considering that two-thirds of people use the same password for multiple accounts – just think how much access this unsavoury character could have to your online life!
How Can I Protect My Business?
The very best way to make sure that your business is prepared against this is by investing in an proactive IT Security solution that will protect your critical business data. It’s impossible for your business to be totally protected, but with the right services and a proactive approach from your team it can be greatly reduced.
Understanding the importance of your data and the risks your business face is key to understanding how best to protect it. With the recent increase of home working we have enabled Two-Factor Authentication as standard on all our Microsoft 365 plans. This is just one way to protect your business data.
What Is Two Factor Authentication?
A simple app on your smartphone or an automated voice will call you whenever you attempt to login to your account. This drastically reduces the chances of your account being compromised by someone accessing it from another location and only needs to be authorised once every 30 days.
What If It All Goes Wrong?
Unfortunately, there’s always an exception to the rule. If your data is compromised, emails go missing or your account is hacked our expert security team will spring into action. We’ll lockdown, change passwords and reauthenticate users within seconds of you notifying us of a problem. However, it’s very unlikely to get to this stage. There are numerous levels of security to bypass initially and then, our powerful security software will check your emails, business data and contacts 24/7 for any evidence of wrong-doing.
Can you afford to take a risk and not be protected?!
