How Much Downtime Can Your Business Afford?

We are sure that you have heard it all before… ‘Cybercrime is on the rise’.CYBER SECURITY - SECURING YOUR IT TECHNOLOGY

It can be really difficult to justify spending time and money on putting software and policies in place to ensure your business is secure from cyber related crimes, especially if you haven’t been affected by hacks and data breaches in the past.

Nevertheless, your chances of remaining safe, without any products or procedures in place, are very slim. According to the latest government figures, ‘Almost half of businesses (46%) reported having cyber security breaches or attacks in the last 12 months.

Can your business realistically continue to operate without any of your IT systems?  

Cyber breaches and hacks are disguised in highly advanced ways and often you will not notice this breach until it is too late and your system is down. This downtime can be highly costly in both time and money. The inability to send and receive emails alone can have a detrimental affect to the ways in which you can communicate with colleagues, customers and suppliers alike.

However, there ARE ways in which you can prevent this!
