Today we have access to more information than ever before. With the huge resources of the Internet; a massive increase in cheap storage capacity; the phenomenal take up of Cloud computing and social media – new threats and vulnerabilities arise. Technical equipment and systems are designed to be function and feature rich, not necessarily secure. Windows PCs only had a built-in firewall recently!
For business systems this means an increase in information risks and frighteningly, a rise in security breaches. All is not lost however. Just doing the basics will help to protect you from many of the cyber-threats your information systems face today.
