Protecting your business online…

Is your business on social media? Do your employees manage your accounts and keep your services updated online? Here’s a few key points to consider when managing your online security risk:

Social media

In a world where businesses are moving more and more to social media for marketing and exposure it is even more important to ensure your systems are secure.

Risks of information leaks and hacking

Greater exposure online has the potential to attract risks, including information leaks or hacking – which means it is even more important to ensure your security is effective and up to date.

Internet Security

Internet security involves the protection of a computer’s network from intrusion by an unknown user. Basic security measures involve protection by well-selected passwords, internet security hardware and software installation and set up of rules within operating systems.

Anti-virus Software

We can supply and install anti-virus software and implement it in an efficient manner so that it doesn’t slow down network activity, yet checks for malicious software including trojans, viruses and spyware.

Firewalls

A firewall increases the security – especially if you, or your employees, regularly use remote access to work from home, which is often the case with social media management as it is a 24-hour tool. We have been installing Sonicwall firewalls for over 10 years.

We can also advise on Internet content filtering and assist with blocking of certain sites – and if your employees are not managing your social media and should not be spending time on social networking sites we can block these too!

Check security – and update

It is imperative that businesses keep their information protected, while still being able to run as they need to in a modern world – the way to do this is to ensure strong security measures are in place and make sure they are regularly checked and updated as technology moves forward.
