Why You Need Training

37% of UK businesses experience information security attacks at least once a month. With online information hacking happening every 39 seconds on average, information security is increasingly one of the most crucial considerations all businesses must pay attention to.

By 2020, it’s predicted that there will be approximately 200 billion Internet of Things (IoT) devices available around the home and workplace. These include more unconventional items like fridges and speakers which will all need varying level of security. The reality is that there has never been a more urgent time to protect yourself, your assets, and your organisation from potential information breaches.

For businesses, information is an important asset that enables day-to-day operations. Implementing business-wide information security is essential for protecting technology and business information. By preventing, detecting and responding to security threats, both internal and external, businesses can safeguard their information assets, comply with regulations and ensure business continuity and growth.

Both physical and digital information needs to be secured. Examples of physical information include business information stored away in filing systems and desks. While digital information is any information stored on devices including work computer, laptops, mobile phones, tablets, storage devices such as USBs. All of these business assets need to be secured to ensure that business information is safe from misuse in case they are lost or stolen.

Whether you are based in the office, travel for work or are home-based, you need to keep your devices safe from the threat of cyberattacks. Protecting your devices with up-to-date security software, you can reduce the likelihood of hackers gaining unauthorised access to your devices and network and keep your business and personal information secure.
