Network Security

Better Business Bureau - Data Security Made Simple

Over the past few years many high profile companies and government agencies have found themselves in the media spotlight because cyber criminals were able to gain unauthorized access to their databases and steal confidential customer information. For fortune 500 organizations, incidents like this can be severely damaging to the company’s reputation and bottom line. For small businesses, a data security breach could mean the end of business, as you know it.

Network Security

Securing your company network can seem like a daunting task. Ten years ago, security professionals focused on installing firewall systems to create a hardened shell around a company’s internal systems. In this era, little effort was expended to secure computers and other devices inside of the company network. The mantra of the day was, “we have a firewall, so we are secure.” While today’s notion of security is much different, network security is still one of the most important components of a company’s Cyber Security program.
