Cyber Security - Empower a more secure remote workforce

Written by

What is Cyber Security?

Cyber security is a set of IT tools, procedures, and policies that companies adopt to safeguard their networks, systems, and data from various online threats or unauthorised access. Cybersecurity’s main objective is to protect sensitive and confidential data from attacks that usually aim to access the information for misuse, extortion of money, or simply to interrupt business.

If you want to protect your business from cyber attacks, it is crucial to understand the common causes of security breaches and the corrective measures you can take to mitigate threats. Among some of the most common causes for an attack are:

  • Weak and stolen credentials 
  • Unsafe applications 
  • Malware 
  • Internal security threats
  • Negligence
  • Configuration and user errors

Complex access management systems can make it hard to keep track of which permissions users have, and can make it easier for cyber criminals to gain access without their presence being noticed.

Solid Systems

Not every business can afford to hire their own IT department Costs involved go well beyond simply salaries and hardware fees. Maintenance can be costly, especially if not done regularly, and keeping your staff constantly trained in the latest technologies so that they can keep your systems up to date is almost impossible without investing a lot of time and money. Thankfully hiring your own team isn’t the only option. This is where an IT company like Solid Systems comes in. Since 2003 we have embarked on a journey of building a company that everyone can be proud of.
