Improve Cybersecurity At Your Business In London

Cybercrime isn’t going away any time soon, and in fact this problem got worse over the course of the pandemic.

One reason for this is because there were more people working remotely, who had less protection on their home devices.

Cyber attacks can have a big impact on businesses of all sizes. All companies should have a decent cyber security strategy in place to safeguard themselves against potential attacks. Because many cybercrime uses techniques like phishing, it’s important to educate your staff to help them identify scams more easily. Human error plays a role in enabling cyber attacks to be successful.

The most common types of cyber attacks include malware, phishing, identity-based attacks, and Denial-of-Service (DoS) Attacks.

Risk management is important if you’re looking to update your cyber security strategy. The government has found that over half of businesses have done this over the past 12 months, usually involving the use of security monitoring tools. It’s crucial that you ensure no area is overlooked when protecting your business. Rarely does a one-size-fits-all approach work.

A government survey has found that 39% of UK businesses have experienced a cyber attack in the past year.

By far the most widely reported attacks were phishing. This involves sending fake emails to reputable companies to get individuals to reveal their private information, whether it’s passwords or credit card numbers. Preventing attacks is much better than having to deal with them afterwards.

A data breach at your company can be extremely damaging. Not only do you put your customer’s private information at risk, it can severely damage your reputation. People want to feel they give you their details in confidence and companies can face legal action if they don’t protect it effectively.

Silver Cloud Technologies offer a wide range of services to improve your IT infrastructure, including safeguarding your business against cyber attacks.

This includes Enhanced Security Monitoring for Microsoft 365, a powerful platform that can be used for most business services.

This type of monitoring includes a monthly security report, detailing the users on Office 365, mailbox access, mailbox rules, external access to 365 from 3rd parties, connection protocols in use, licensing, DKIM, OAUTH status and more.

Silver Cloud Technologies also offers cloud-managed antivirus solutions.

With Trend Micro Worry-Free Security Services, you’ll enjoy advanced threat and web security, application control, and data loss protection. You’ll also have web reputation and URL filtering in place. These security services provide ransomware protection for extra peace of mind.

Ransomware is a type of malicious software which works by blocking access to a computer system until a sum of money is paid. Although it’s usually aimed at individuals, it can be extremely dangerous because it prevents you from accessing your device and the data stored on it, usually by encrypting your files.

Silver Cloud Technologies is based in central London and works with companies in a range of locations.
