How_to_Shore_Up_Your_Netw_72221_136202As a mid-sized or smaller organization, there is a lure of feeling safety in obscurity. “We’re too small to be a target for cyber attacks” is a common refrain used to justify a lax network security position. Or maybe lack of knowledge means that having anti virus or a basic firewall in place lulls companies into a false sense of security.

The truth is your company doesn’t have to be a giant global corporation to be in the cross hairs of an attack.  As IT networks have become the lifeblood of business in the 21st Century there is more opportunity than ever for these vital but vulnerable systems to be disrupted by malicious intent, or for fraud or other crime to be perpetrated through them.

Automated exploits of common vulnerabilities can equally sweep up victims on any Internet-facing network. As for targeted attacks, smaller companies are being targeted first precisely because cybercriminals know these organizations have weak security – and may be a steppingstone to connected business partners or a large parent company.

Ineffective or inadequate IT security measures remain one of the biggest risks to business continuity and performance today.

Unfortunately the common perception is that it ‘ will never happen to me’.

IT security risks pervade day to day business operations and have increased with the use of hot spots and the commercialisation of IT.

Communications capabilities have spread - phones, PDAs and all sorts of devices within your organisation or at your employees' homes are now routinely connected to your network “the opportunity for mischief has never been greater and the penalties for non-compliance with regulations are becoming ever-more severe.

An enormous number of network security approaches are available to assure secure communications for a wide range of requirements. The landscape runs from firewall configuration to Virtual Private Network services to application-level cryptography.

The good news is you don’t need to hire a crew of security experts to effectively manage IT risks and comply with security and privacy regulations.
