There is a high possibility that Russia is preparing for a HUGE Cyber assault on British interests in retaliation to the sanctions placed on them since the start of the Ukrainian war. GCHQ and the Home Secretary have urged companies and the public sector to take “Pre-emptive measures” to protect against such an attack.
If you are one of those companies that have just “made do” with FREE IT Security and Backups over the years, then this may not be the best philosophy for your business. If you do get stung by one of these latest malware threats, you may find your entire computer infrastructure has been wiped.
How much would this cost your business?
- If you lost all your data, emails?
- In lost revenue due to service delays?
- To re-build all the computers and restore services?
- To re-create all business processes?
- Impact on new Business due to a poor security reputation?
We recommend that ALL businesses ensure that they are running modern operating systems (NOT WINDOWS 7 OR XP!), have all the latest security patches applied and anti-virus software installed (running and up to date) In addition to that, make sure that you have a business-grade Router firewall running the latest firmware, one that has been configured by a professional. Most importantly of all is to ensure that you complete an offsite backup of all business data at least once daily and set up two-factor authentication on all Cloud services.
