Comprehensive IT security audits and risk analysis
Compromises in IT security now represent one of the largest and most serious threats to most modern businesses. Threats come from many sources, both internal and external to the business, and do not always involve malicious activity.
QNet can carry out a comprehensive IT security audit that will thoroughly check all aspects of your business: the network, the PCs, the software and the working practices of staff are all open to scrutiny. Any potential risks are highlighted, with recommendations on how to resolve the issues.
This type of risk analysis should be considered to be an essential item for any organisation that takes IT security and protecting their IT systems seriously.
Cyber crime is now big business, and the repercussions of IT security breaches are no longer just an inconvenience - they can lead to real and significant financial loss, and sometimes crippling data loss too. Some businesses simply never recover from a serious IT security problem.
Spoofing, eavesdropping, hacking, viruses, trojans, worms, phishing scams, WiFi sniffing, and root kits are just some of the malicious threats to your IT systems.
Poor working practices
In addition to all this, poor working practices can also put the business at risk: weak passwords, poor PC maintenance, a lack of sufficient data backup procedures, and inadequate data security can all have disastrous consequences.
Poor maintenance and lack of awareness
PCs alone require constant maintenance, with the latest updates and security patches, relevant anti-virus, anti-spyware and rootkit detection software. Poorly configured networks are another source of weakness in IT security. PC users must also be aware of IT security issues, and be vigilant at all times when engaging in Internet activity and dealing with files from external sources.
