Does Your Business Lack Adequate Cyber Security?
9 February 2018
We’ve discussed cyber security a lot over recent weeks as we want to stress the importance of having an efficient and proactive IT support system that fully protects your business from cyber security issues. With recent findings showing that businesses do not have the knowledge and expertise to protect themselves from cyber attacks, the need for professional business IT support from a reputable and expert IT company is highlighted.
ICT Solutions are a leading IT support company in Liverpool specialising in all things IT, including cyber security, network support, and IT infrastructure.
Cyber Attacks on the Horizon for Businesses
According to research conducted by Hiscox, 73% of the 4,000 businesses that were investigated were severely at risk of cyber attacks due to their inadequate cyber security knowledge and protection. Worryingly, around half of these businesses have experienced at least one cyber attack in the past year, with some falling victim to two or more.
These findings demonstrate the real threats that businesses, and those business’s clients and customers, face, emphasising the need for proper security protection. The more you invest in cyber security protection, the less vulnerable your business is to attacks.
Small Business IT Support
Cyber attacks do not discriminate, so whether you’re a big chain business or a small independent business, your security could be at risk. Small businesses, however may not be up to date with the latest security procedures or have the knowledge, funding or manpower to properly protect their IT infrastructure at all times. Outsourcing your IT support with an expert IT company could be the solution.
Here at ICT Solutions, we specialise in helping businesses get the best from their IT infrastructure so that they can focus on other important business matters. Our low prices are perfect for small businesses and our smallest customers receive the same level of service as our larger customers.
We use advanced managed antivirus and firewall technology that’s sure to provide you with peace of mind that all of your computers and devices are fully protected. The antivirus platform that we use is AVG Cloudcare, a service which offers world-class security protection across all of your IT infrastructure as well as content filtering to increase your productivity. We’re always up to date with software updates and the latest security issues, so if you happen to experience security issues we’ll be on the case immediately, saving you time and worry. Without a proper IT support company, these issues would go unnoticed and unresolved.
We have helped many businesses protect their IT systems, but don’t take our word for it, take a look at what our clients think about our service. The below is from Iain Heffey, the finance manager at Argyle Care Group. The finance industry is particularly at risk of cyber attacks, so our service was a great help to this business.
Ensure that your business has the comfort and support that it deserves and avoid being a part of the 73% that are exposed to cyber attacks due to lack of cyber security protection. A good way to start this is to follow our advice on password security.
