What is IT Security?

IT security is the protection of computer systems from theft or damage to their hardware, software or electronic data, as well as from disruption or misdirection of the services they provide.

As you are no doubt aware the need to have tight security these days is paramount as cyber threats are constantly evolving. To counter these threats there are many layers to put in place as there is not one device or program that will stop all attacks. This layered security includes:
  • User training and awareness
  • Secure Backups
  • Anti Virus
  • Anti Spam with Email encryption and continuity
  • O/S & Application Patch Management
  • Web filtering and Unified Threat Management
  • Mobile Device Management (inc 365 Enterprise Management and Security)
  • SSL certificates
  • Data Encryption such as Windows 10 BitLocker
