It is 100% true that a company’s network will efficiently and reliably store everything from your online correspondence, sensitive client information, internal documentation and more – all used to skyrocket your efficiency by being available within a few clicks to the person with the right credentials.
The trouble starts, however, when a person without permissions gets their hands on this information.
In order to prevent a disaster like that from happening, it is absolutely crucial to ensure the security of your network.
In our experience it is shown that most small (and even medium!) sized businesses completely neglect network security by thinking that their network is beneath hacker’s notice.
This usually ends up with catastrophic consequences, a loss of trust of the company’s clients, hours upon hours spent fixing the issues which resulted from the breach, and several thousands of dollars lost – after which we’re usually called upon for aid. But it’s too late to worry about network security at that point. The disaster already happened.
And it’s no wonder it happened knowing that all the valuable information found on your network, paired with a relative lack of protection mechanisms against a potential security breach make it an incredibly attractive target for hackers.
