It’s often said that prevention is better than cure, and that’s certainly the case when it comes to IT.
Businesses targeted by cyber-crime fall into two camps: those who have prepared and those who haven’t.
It goes without saying that the ones who have always put IT security low down on their list of priorities find themselves in the hottest, deepest water. The effects of even a relatively small data breach can last for months, even years, with many organisations finding themselves completely unable to recover from the loss of revenue, reputation and customers.
Any cyber-attack will be inconvenient and worrying, but if you’ve got all your ducks in a row it doesn’t have to be devastating. When you have the proper plans, procedures, software and support in place you’ll always have the upper hand.
