IT Security is an Insurance Policy – you should never have to claim
For many years, the average small or medium sized business was an unlikely target for a cyber-attack. Fewer rich pickings and a relatively unknown brand worked in their favour as it wasn’t worth the time and effort for the average cyber-crook or delinquent hacker. But not anymore.
Smaller companies are becoming increasingly attractive because they often have weaker online security. They’re also doing more business than ever online and retaining greater amounts of information, much of which may include personal details of customers, suppliers and staff. To a hacker, that translates into a potential treasure trove of sensitive data behind a door with an easy to pick lock. And if you have any large enterprises as customers, you’re an even more enticing target as you’re also an entry point to them.
At PC Futures we understand that budget constraints means that spending money on perceived threats can be seen as ‘over and above’ what is needed. Perhaps the best way to think of security products like anti spam and anti virus is to think of them as insurance policies. You hope you never need to claim on them but they give you peace of mind
