Everything you need to know about network security

Posted on by Neil Kemp of Network and Security

What is network security?
It’s all activity that is designed to protect your network and its data from breaches, intrusions, employee negligence, and cyber attacks.

Why does my business need it?
I assume your business relies on technology to stay on top of your competition. However, the more devices, users, and applications you add the more vulnerable your network becomes. The more technology you add, the more opportunities there are for a cybercriminal to attack your business.

What happens if I don’t secure my network?
A security breach can cause downtime that will eat into your profits, it will also badly affect your reputation, and even cause your business to completely crash. And don’t assume your business is too small to attract the attention of hackers. That’s not how cybercriminals see it. In fact, small businesses are easier targets because they often fail to put in the resources to protect themselves.

What are the benefits of securing my network?
You will:

  • Inspire trust in your customers because they will see that you take care of their sensitive information and prevent it from getting into the wrong hands
  • You will have peace of mind knowing your business is safe from many threats.
  • Enjoy a modern workplace as you will be able to apply new technology with ease.
