Cyber Security: 3 Areas Where It Can Go Wrong (2 of 3)
With companies growing the amount of business critical technology they use so grows the threat to their cyber security. In the first post we briefly talked about how people are the number one threat, in this second post we talk about equipment.
2. Equipment: Theft of data can be as simple as an USB device being plugged into a workstation. If your back up strategy only consists of local hard drives that are not secured you are at risk of losing your company's data. Theft doesn’t just happen from disgruntled or untrustworthy employees. Social engineering from individuals outside the company can put your network at risk. Strong policy and a secure perimeter is necessary to prevent cyber security threats to your equipment. At AbleIT our data and infrastructure is backed up on the cloud, decreasing our cyber security threat from theft, damage or crypto-lockouts.
