Whilst rapid developments in technology have provided a wave of new opportunity and resources for business, this change has also brought an alarming host of new threats. Specialising in the protection of systems, networks and data in cyberspace, Cyber Security now plays a critical role in the business place, as we move toward a world that is more connected to the internet than ever.

Why does my business need cyber security?
With many businesses still failing to address the risk of cyber threats, a lack of security could cost your business significant financial loss and damage. Having now been categorised as a ‘major threat’, cyber crime shows no signs of slowing down and it is now more important than ever to ensure your business has the correct measures in place to prevent any devastating consequences of cyber crime.
As part of the government’s Cyber Streetwise campaign, only 16% of respondents said that investment in cyber security was a top priority; an alarming figure considering the rapid pace of the cyber world and online dangers it poses.
When it comes to network security, it is often wrongly perceived that only larger organisations need to dedicate resources to protect their networks against the increasing risk of online threats. Although most SME’s believe their businesses are safe, in reality the threat has never been greater, as many hackers now look to target their unprotected networks.
Quite simply, cyber security threats are real, and are targeting companies large and small, day in and day out. SME’s will commonly dismiss themselves as being in any real danger, often thinking that the larger companies are prime targets. In reality, smaller companies hold a gold mine of customer and employee data, from online banking credentials to social security numbers, making them a prime target.
Often cyber attacks are successful because companies are using outdated systems and processes or haven’t updated and maintained their software. Too often businesses implement a fit and forget policy where once they have purchased anti-virus software, software patches and firewalls they are installed and then neglected. This means regular checks and updates don’t take place and means they don’t provide sufficient protection against modern threats.
Viruses and ransomware programmes are readily available online meaning the level of expertise required to launch a cyber-attack has been reduced and ‘amateur hackers’ have the technological know-how to target SMEs. It is likely that many businesses have either been compromised already or will be in the near-future.
Businesses now require strategic cyber security solutions that should not only secure existing systems, but look to keep you business secure in the future. Good cyber security companies will provide the correct solutions, policies and procedures to identify and reduce the risk of an attack, whilst resolution or disaster recovery plans and procedures need to be in place to safely restore your business data quickly and efficiently.
