Security breaches and network security issues can cost your company exorbitant amounts of money due to data or time loss, for example. Ensuring your network is as highly secure as possible is a necessity.
Keeping your network secure allows your employees to focus on their job duties without interruption. Breaches in security can bring down entire networks, damage software and hardware, as well as cause you to lose critical data. Companies and their clients are becoming more vulnerable as personal data is being readily shared over the internet. Digital data collection allows companies to be more versatile and have a broader customer base, but also opens up the possibility of a security breach.
“Unintentional threats can happen when employees fail to guard their passwords.”
Internal threats, intentional or unintentional, pose a significant problem to businesses as well. Unintentional threats can happen when employees fail to guard their passwords, use easily guessed passwords, or remain logged into the system when their work station is unattended. Employees can fall prey to scams by responding to phishing emails or accidentally giving out sensitive information to crafty individuals.
Some threats may be intentional. For example, unhappy employees may attempt to destroy data or release sensitive information to a competitor. Terminated employees with a grudge already know the infrastructure of your company and may try to login to systems using their old credentials.
Breaches in security such as loss of client data, for example, can decrease client satisfaction and reduce trust in your company and cause you to lose business. Having multiple layers of security is the best way to combat these issues and ensure you have the most secure network possible.
These components combined work together to minimize system maintenance and ensure improved network security. JKS can help determine your network security needs and design and implement a system to help you protect your company from possible threats.
