How were the last 12 months for the cyber security of your business?
It’s that time of year again, when many businesses reflect on the year just gone by – ourselves included. We review what went well, what could have gone better and what didn’t work at all.
Last year, we successfully helped over 2,000 companies keep their data protected, allowing their teams to exchange files and collaborate seamlessly 24/7.
2016 wasn’t the best of years for high profile companies like Tesco Bank and TalkTalk, or even the Democratic Party in the run up to the US Presidential Election.
They were each targeted with tremendously compromising cyber attacks. It cost Tesco Bank an alleged £2.5m in customer payouts after bank accounts were hacked in November.
We hope that 2016 was a prosperous year for your company; a year without any security compromises for your data.
But, with the many high profile cases of 2016 highlighting the damaging consequences of a cyber attack, it’s clear that the security of data must be a priority for every business around the world, regardless of its size and regardless of its history.
What can you do to keep your data safe online?
Fortunately, there are many ways you can protect your business online. From creating and updating strong, hard-to-guess passwords to keeping on top of the latest software downloads and patches, it’s essential that you make your business’s cyber security a priority. It’s also important to make sure that your staff are all on board and are fully compliant with your business’s security procedures and policies.
