OK, so clearly blogging isn't my thing, although there are only so many interesting jobs worth posting about!
At the beginning of each year, every business has to think about what it wants to achieve in the next 12 months. This year we are focusing on offering #computer #network #security and threat mitigation.
The number of threats are increasing daily and as quickly as manufacturers and software houses patch the threats to their products, new threats arise. This is why it is imperative to keep a close eye on all the devices that connect to your network and ensure they are patched and updated - particularly the computer operating systems. Now, no-one likes installing #Windows #Updates, but I cannot emphasis how vital these are. Oh - and don't think for one second #Mac devices are perfectly secure - they aren't! They just aren't targeted to the same degree as Windows machines as there are far fewer of them. However, this number is increasing and as it does so, so will the threats to Mac.
Having run a scan on my own home network, I found threats that I had no idea existed - needless to say they are now patched but it was a real eye-opener.
We will be rolling out a network security testing and mitigation service in the very near future, mainly aimed at businesses but also for home users with numerous devices - this includes all the latest technology such as network printers, tablets, phones, smart TVs and Blu-ray players - oh and fridges too (whoever thought a fridge might one day have an Internet connection?!) Any or all of these devices can have a security flaw that can allow #hackers and #malware to infiltrate a network, exposing personal data and possibly infecting devices with ransomware.
If you are interested in this service, please give us a shout and we'll be delighted help protect you against the latest threats.
