In contemporary times, locating an organisation that does not hinge on IT as the cornerstone for its operations is quite challenging. Especially prominent are communications, accounts, payroll, and line-of-business applications, which constitute the majority of an organisation’s crucial operations. Consequently, ensuring the availability and integrity of these systems ought to be a top priority for your business.
In recent years, there has been a rise in both the frequency and intricacy of cyber-attacks, notably ransomware, amplifying the potential harm a security breach can inflict on your business. This shift has prompted initiatives like the UK government-supported cyber essentials program and has also played a role in shaping the new GDPR regulations.
A dearth of security awareness and a lack of comprehension regarding the complexity of these novel cyber-attack techniques can lead to your organization being infiltrated. This could potentially result in substantial business repercussions, including alienating your customers, restricting your trading capabilities, and tarnishing a well-established reputation.
