IT Security

Information Technology Security is charged with safeguarding the confidentiality, integrity and availability of all information processed, stored or transmitted.

It is incredible to learn the percentage of businesses that are unaware of the threat they are faced with on a daily basis. On many occasions, I’ve walked into a business to resolve security related issues, and to my surprise, found their Information Technology Security status to be extremely vulnerable.

I once recovered a company’s server that was hit by a ransomware attack. Not only did they lose production time and other business opportunities, but unfortunately lost a few of their current clients in the process. In order to restore the office back to operation and bring their security status to standard operation condition, they were faced with a financial set-back.

What can you take away from this?

Imagine losing your business operating data to some hackers in a foreign nation. Failing to properly protect your asset could cost you substantially. There is no end to what you could lose- losing customer data could have some serious consequences, losing your own data to the wrong hand could cost you your identity.
