In 2014, 81% of large organisations and 60% of small businesses suffered a security breach
Although the number of breaches experienced by UK organisations has fallen slightly in recent years, the severity and impact of attacks has increased, with the average cost of an organisations’ worst breach rising significantly. For small organisations the worst breaches cost between £65,000 and £115,000 on average and for large organisations between £600,000 and £1.15 million.
Increasingly mobile workforces and the reliance on web based applications means that IT security threats come from many sources and keeping up with them can be difficult. Effective security is all about protecting the network from intrusion, preventing access from unauthorised devices and allowing secure authentication. If an intrusion does occur you also need to identify it quickly so the breach can be closed and damage kept to a minimum.
Before you can establish what level of security is required for your business you need to review the personal data you hold and assess the risks to that data. Each organisation needs to address its own unique threat landscape. We work with you to implement the most appropriate, cost-effective security without compromising on protection.
