Information Security Audit and Other Ways to Protect Your Assets

IT security partnerFoolproof Your Information Security System

Down under here in Australia we don’t take cybersecurity as serious as what we need to. Cyber attacks not only result in IT damage. Worse, they put your reputation at risk! We’re not just talking about malware and crimeware lurking in the shadows—waiting for a chance to attack when you least expect it. Cyber threats encompass all possible ways to get into your system, so you need to foolproof your defences by looking at all sides, including an internal IT security plan and an information security audit.

Are You Ready for an IT System Breach?woman driving a car

In late February, Toyota’s Australian branch reported a cybersecurity breach. The attack was a big blow to the branch’s operation because it prevented the company from closing car sales. The staff members lost access to email and other cloud-based information, and they were instructed to switch off their computers. The attack followed other cyber attacks in the country, including the attack on the Parliament House computer network and a hospital in Melbourne.

Cyber Security: Can We Really Be Safe?

Today, we're going to talk about cybersecurity and whether we can ever be safe. Well, the short answer is no. However, we can try damn hard to be safe. We can be diligent and continue the game of cat and mouse to make sure that we're on top of it. The good news is crime, in general, is on the down, but online, there are a lot of risks. You can hold people, companies to ransom.

One of the easiest ways to secure yourself is to make sure that you've got your stuff backed up and it's in an offsite location. If you've got a managed IT service provider, they can make sure that they're looking after that for you and they're backing it up onsite and remotely in your own private cloud.
