Security Solutions

We wish to provide organisations with the best possible Internet solutions for their businesses. We are conscious of the fact that the Internet is an open network that provides a vast landscape of information but with this comes risks. Those risks are largely determined by what information you store and process as part of your Internet footprint.

You may for instance provide an informative web site about a specific topic, lets say "healthy living". This type of site rarely contains information that could be damaging to your business if the web site was compromised and the sources files were stolen. What however, if the web site was an online ordering portal for computer peripherals. This is much more of a risk as it is likely to store personal information about customers, important business information, even credit card details. A compromise here would be damaging and more than likely cost a significant amount in fines, compensation to customers or very likely a private legal challenge from a customer.

Therefore we always encourage our customers to choose the right security protection for the data you process. This is where you might consider a risk assessment to determine how important your data is and whether or not your risk is small or significant. A rule of thumb is that if you manage and maintain a database it is likely you are storing personal information and need to consider the risks associated with doing so.
