Why You Need IT Services When You’re Starting A Business 

When you’re starting a business, it can be tempting to think that you can handle the IT yourself.

How To Prevent Your Data From Appearing On The Dark Web

A consequence of many successful hacks and ransomware attacks is that sensitive company data ends up on the dark web. Sometimes it is being offered for sale as part of a large collection of stolen data, other time it is simply posted in plain text for anyone to read. Ransomware often threatens to leak business’s data if the ransom demand is not met. 

At best, this data could be just names and addresses, which are useful in themselves for identity thieves. At worst it could be your passwords, bank details, or credit card numbers. 

In this article we’re going to cover what the dark web is, and the risks of your data being posted there. We will also cover how to prevent this happening, and what to do if it does.

Why Managed Cloud Security Is Important For Your Business

As more and more data and network infrastructure is moved onto cloud platforms, securing those platforms becomes ever more important.  

Many businesses think that as they are relying on a third-party cloud services provider like Microsoft Azure or Amazon AWS, the provider will be taking care of all the security. However, this isn’t quite accurate.

Why Multi Factor Authentication Is Important For Your Business Security 

A complex and long password full of random numbers or letters used to be considered the height of cybersecurity – but even the strongest password isn’t much use if someone else tricks you into revealing it. The purpose of password security isn’t to test your brain’s ability to remember a collection of obscure symbols, it’s to validate your identity as the correct owner of the account. To this end, Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) is a far superior way of proving that you are who you say you are.
