In recent months we have heard of some cases in of businesses in the South West that have had different IT systems hacked, ranging from RDS servers, Office 365 accounts and other systems.
This caused massive disruption to their business whilst their data was recovered; they had to submit details of the events to the ICO in reference to GDPR and customer based and reputation suffered as a result.
We strongly recommend that all of our customers revisit the GDPR, Security and backup solutions that we have recommended in the past that may have been put off for future planning or dismissed altogether.
We always do our best to recommend the best solutions to meet with a budget, but with all IT security there is a risk vs cost stance that a customer should take. We cannot stress how important IT security is and we advise all businesses to consider whether they have enough protection in place to ensure that their risk is kept to a minimum. We would also like to remind you that you are responsive for your data and securing your data we can provide you with advice and support you through getting the right security solutions but ultimately it is tour decision.
If you are concerned about IT security and would like to discuss your options to ensure your business is protected as best as possible please do not hesitate to contact us.
