Get Your IT Security Right

When you turn off the lights at night in your workplace, do you worry about your husiness being robbed? - If so, imagine it happening right before your eyes in broad daylight.

When you don't put proper steps in place to prevent data fraud, that is exactly what happens. What's worse is that it can happen in the middle of the day, without you knowing. Suddenly all your clients financial details, your secure files and even your employees confidential data, stored on your servers and computers could be in the public domain - and if you haven't tried your best to keep everything as secure as possible and things go wrong, you could be facing prosecution.
