Keeping your network safe with IT Security

What is IT Network Security?

IT Network Security defines the activities that a company or organisation takes to protect its network and its data. It is a basic requirement for all businesses. Threats to a company’s network are many but the most common are spread over the internet.

These include:

  1. Viruses, Worms & Trojans
  2. Data interception & theft
  3. Spam
  4. IT Network Security
  5. Computer Hackers
  6. Spyware, Malware & Adware
  7. Data interception & theft

Threats can also come from within an organisation and these can include:

  1. Use of company laptops on non-approved websites when not on the company network
  2. Downloading of music/video files on company PCs
  3. Copying of company info to USB memory devices
  4. Access to non-approved websites on company network

All companies must define IT security policies that are designed to protect against these threats.

These can be as simple as Password Policies to implementing complex Firewall solutions to protect the network.
