Cyber-attacks are a concern for any organisation and should not be ignored. Tecnica are well versed in cyber security and offer a vast array of prevention tools. The five most common cyber-attacks faced by businesses are:
Gaining sensitive information while posing as a trustworthy contact
Deliberate or careless leaking of documents
Portable storage devices being targets for data thieves
Encrypting data and extorting a ransom to release an unlock code
Targeting businesses to gain valuable information e.g. bank account, credit card details
First and foremost you must be able to recognise these threats and raise awareness, ensuring quality cyber security without breaking the bank. Based in Scotland, Tecnica’s IT steering strategy is to offer such guidance in accordance with recognised Government and CIS best practice. In general terms this means raising awareness, updating software, maintaining anti-virus and anti-malware tools, maintaining access security as well as locking down points of access to the network.
If your business is concerned about system security, our experienced team of experts can carry out security audits periodically and report these at board level to highlight risk and plan mitigation. Furthermore, we can provide basic monitoring of the network and vigilance over current threats that appear in the public domain to minimise exposure.
