When we leave work in the evening, we lock the office up and do a final security check, lock the doors, and think the office is safe. The physical threats to the building are fairly obvious such as damage caused by a break in or unusual weather conditions such as a freak storm. However there are other threats which aren’t quite so obvious and often remain hidden from view.

Thinking of the physical equipment you have in and out of the office, ask yourself, how many devices are IP connected? Your laptops, mobile phones, radios, maybe your desk phone. Every communication device is vulnerable to a cyber attack from hackers and as a result cyber security is frequently in the news.

However hackers are staying one step ahead of the game, particularly by installing more sophisticated and malicious software to steal sensitive documents. Hackers regularly call up organisations and try to convince employees during a phone call, to reveal password details, then quickly gain trust and access to the employees’ computer system.

There have been a recent series of bold cyber security attacks on high-profile targets, which shows there is a willingness to use disruptive and destructive measures to seriously harm organisations.Hackers have even used internet-connected home devices, such as CCTV cameras and printers, to attack popular websites such as Twitter, Spotify, Reddit and the BBC.

The U.K. Government is spending billions on cyber security and a Cyber Committee has been formed to tackle the threats the U.K. faces. However, Internet security is the responsibility of us all.

The damage which can be done to your network is immeasurable. It’s the sort of thing lots of us would rather not think about. However, it is a real threat to any business and should be high on any business owner’s agenda.

Don’t just think about your physical office. Work forces are increasingly mobile. Access to mobiles is changing and organisations continue to lose more and more control over how and where information is used.

Internet security is much more than just an anti-virus system so we offer a complete security audit of your email system, servers, network and computers, and then recommend the best setup for your business. The audit is completely free if you proceed with our recommendations.
