What Is Cyber Security?
Cyber security is a process of protecting your business from unauthorized access. This may include access to your computers, networks, software applications, and of course personal and customer data. An implemented cyber security process should be more than adding anti-virus software or making an application password protected, it should include a structured plan designed to protect all of your information. Cyber threats, such as Ransomware and phishing attacks, pose significant challenges for businesses. Employees undoubtedly play a large role in protecting your business from these types of attacks, which is why it is important to have them trained in security awareness as well. How your employees utilize their computers to what pages they browse on the internet, will either protect or harm your business unintentionally. A costly data breach can occur at any time by performing seemingly harmless activities like clicking on an unknown link in an email.
How Can I Protect My Business?
Protecting your business is easy. By implementing a data security process for you and your employees to follow, you’ll stay one step ahead and reduce the odds of a security breach by a significant percentage. Your security process should include things like updating all devices on a regular basis, making sure you’re utilizing a secure network, creating strong passwords that are changed often, and of course implementing best practices and policies to follow daily. Although these steps seem easy enough to follow, sadly they are often overlooked – which can be the cause of a major data breach. Continuous training of your employees can keep your business and your customers safe from any potential threats.
What Are The Benefits?
Cyber security protects your system against viruses, worms, spyware and any other unwanted programs, and minimizes the chance of your computer freezing or crashing.

Our systems not only save you time and money, but instills confidence in you, your employees, and your customers. This peace of mind is priceless compared to the aftermath of a cyber security attack.
