Cyber attacks can be extremely damaging to businesses, not only by disrupting day-to-day operations, but they can also be harmful to a company’s reputation, particularly if they result in compromising client data. It is crucial that your business has reliable cyber security measures in place, from a provider you can trust, to combat cyber threats and protect your business’s operations and reputation.
What is a Cyber Attack?
A cyber attack is an assault, launched by cybercriminals, that can disable computers, steal data, or use a breached computer as a launch point for other attacks. Cyber attacks can be launched in a variety of different ways, including malware, phishing, ransomware, and denial of service, among other methods.
Almost 40% of businesses had a cyber security breach or attack in the last 12 months, as reported by The UK Government’s Cyber Security Breaches Survey 2021. Most cyber attacks are permitted by human error, by system users choosing a password that is easy to figure out or not changing the default password on devices such as routers.
What is Cyber Security?
Cyber security is the application of technologies, processes, and controls to protect systems, networks, programs, devices, and data from cyber attacks. It reduces the risks of cyber attacks and protects against the unauthorised exploitation of systems, networks and technologies.
The most effective cyber security is made up of several layers of protection, such as:
- Using multiple strong passwords
- Implementing two factor authentication
- Installing anti-virus software
- Developing a backup and disaster recovery plan
- Ensuring all employees are trained in your business’s cyber security protocol
- Ensuring all software updates and patches are completed regularly
