Is anti-virus software and firewall adequate to defend against hacking attacks? Probably not. Discover why business needs to employ Cyber Security Experts
In this day and age, we can hardly trust that the anti-virus and firewall on our computer will be adequate to defend against hacking attacks. What may appear as a costly solution to online security could end up saving you thousands in lost productivity, damages, or lost contract and opportunities due to poor security.
Children Cyber Experts
In an article on TechWorm, they discussed that children from as young as five years old are leading the way when it comes to hacking and cyber security. It just shows that age is no barrier when it comes to cybersecurity, and for many young people it is an advantage. Whether these awakening cyber experts use their talents for good or bad is yet to be seen, but one thing for sure, if you don’t have adequate cyber security protection, your entire business is vulnerable.
At Bridewell, we have an entire range of staff and specialised contractors who are dedicated to cyber security. They are constantly evolving, learning new skills, and staying on the cutting edge of the cyber security industry. Cyber security is a sector where you simply can’t afford to play it safe and hope that it will never happen to you. Hackers are constantly trying to force their way into businesses systems, breach security and firewalls, in many cases just to prove that they can. Once they discover a weakness or flaw in a security system, they often share it just to boast about their ‘hacking’ prowess.
Often hackers aren’t simply after an immediate payday; they will normally crash your system, sell your customers information, steal your data and destroy your system, forcing you to rebuild it from the ground up. This can be a very time-consuming process and cost you a fortune in lost revenue
