In a modern business, there are few things more important than securing your office network. If you haven’t already taken measures to secure your network, Suretel is here to explain why it so vitally important that you do so.
Securing the integrity of your data is as important as investing in a sophisticated alarm system and insurance policy for a warehouse full of stock.
The True Value of Office Network Security
Your information, as well as that of your clients, suppliers and other stakeholders, are all held within your data storage networks. You should never underestimate the desire of hackers and competitors to get their hands on your information – or their capacity to do so. An unsecured network is a sitting duck to anyone with the will and the means to access it.

Always Be on the Alert
There are several threats that you need to take into account: sabotage or espionage from people and organisations within your industry, and the more speculative destruction of hackers and cybercriminals. All of these can be disastrous to your business and an unsecured network is as open to them as an unoccupied house, with all its doors left open, is vulnerable to burglars.
Your network can be attacked in a number of ways: malware, spyware, ransomware, among others – all intended to steal or destroy your data. The attack could come at any time, from internal or external sources, and you’ll never know until it’s too late.
Put Security Measures in Place
Thankfully, good security for your system is an easy and relatively inexpensive thing to get. In consultation with Suretel, you can quickly install a variety of measures such as anti-virus and anti-ransomware software, firewalls and back-up systems.

However, once you have put these measures in place, you can’t just sit back and think you’re safe. You will need to constantly check and update your protective software to keep up with the rapidly evolving threats out there. Thankfully, this is something that can be set up to take place automatically, or one of our consultants can keep an eye on it for you.

As with everything in life, better safe than sorry.
