Benefits of IT Security

By championing high standards in IT Security your customers, suppliers and employees will be confident that you are protecting their data and running a tight ship.

We turn the uncertainty that worries CEOs, Owners, Board members and Managers into policies, plans, strategies and measurable results.

  • We make sure that you have all the relevant knowledge to respond effectively when an IT Security incident occurs.
  • When management take IT Security seriously then employees will too
    • It has to come from the top down. Walk the walk.
  • Clients often ask us to perform digital investigations to set the bar to show employees how far they are willing to go in order to protect client data and the company’s reputation.

Implementing and enforcing best practice IT Security is guaranteed to save your company money.

Some examples of how our clients have saved money are:

  • Employees who had been trained were able to identify phishing and ransomware emails and avoided avoided the cleanup costs associated with such attacks.
  • Management knew how to preserve digital evidence, resulting in an unfair dismissal case being dropped, saving the company tens of thousands of euro.
  • An unproductive employee was investigated and found to be doing “nixers” during company time.

We get calls from companies who understand that raising their IT Security standards will allow them to get stand apart from the competition when securing new business, provide a better service to their existing customers and will also reduce unnecessary IT downtime.

  • Do your customers expect a minimum level of compliance?
  • Do you want to differentiate your business from the competition?
  • Do you want to avoid fines or strike off because you do not conform to regulatory requirements?
    • GDPR
    • PCI
    • Central Bank requirements

It is significantly cheaper to implement IT Security measures than to clean up a Data Breach!

The Truth about IT Security

The Myth The Reality
IT Security is cost prohibitive The only companies who do not budget for IT Security are the ones who have not had to pay for a breach clean up and investigation.

The costs associated with a data breach include GDPR fines, digital investigation costs, legal costs and system downtime.

The interruption to employees and day to day operations is what the majority of companies find the most difficult to absorb.  Investigations are intrusive by nature.  Time is a valuable and scarce resource for most companies.

Our business / industry isn’t the kind that cybercriminals target Every business is a potential target for cybercrime. Data is your most valuable asset, that is why the GDPR fines are so high. Most cybercriminals simply want to extract money. If your company has money in the bank, you are a target.

Most successful attacks are as a result of user exploitation, very often the attacker doesn’t know who the victim is, the attack is random.

 Our IT Support company looks after our Security It is often assumed that IT Support and IT Security are part of the same job and this is a huge challenge for IT Support providers and departments.  IT Security is a specialist area.

We understand the challenges that our IT Support colleagues face and work closely with them as a fresh pair of eyes to secure your systems and data.

Don’t forget IT Security is a business problem, not an IT problem!
