Why is security so critical?

It only takes a power or internet outage to very quickly gain an appreciation of how much we rely on our IT systems.

Last year, 40% of New Zealand businesses were impacted by ransomware – cyber criminals encrypting your important business files and demanding a ‘ransom’ to restore them.

The Christchurch earthquake further reinforced our reliance on technology. As much as we hope or think it won’t happen to us, the reality is that natural disasters such as earthquakes and fires do happen and when they do, they can have an enormously detrimental impact on your business.

What do you need to consider?

Due to the increasing dependence on our IT systems we simply can’t afford to have them down. Being proactive rather than reactive by implementing appropriate security software (eg fire walls) and backing up files in the cloud is essential. The risk of not doing so can result in costing thousands of dollars of IT recovery, hours of lost production and a detrimental impact on the service you can provide your clients.
