"As we increasingly rely on the Internet to communicate and conduct business, a secure computing platform has never been more important. Along with the vast benefits of increased connectivity, new security risks have emerged on a scale that few in our industry fully anticipated." - Bill Gates
How do you protect yourself?
The first step to securing your network environment is gaining a commitment from your organization. The responsibility for maintaining a safe and secure network must be communicated to all who participate on that network, and therefore everyone must act responsibly. This means that end users must be educated about how to minimize risks.
Management must also make a commitment. Security threats continue to emerge and therefore your network may be safe one day and compromised the next. Management must be prepared to allocate the required resources on an on-going basis to monitor and manage security across the enterprise.
Perform a Risk Assessment
The first step in securing your network is to perform a risk or security assessment. This will provide you with a starting point from which you can build your security project.
Micro Market Business Centre has training and certified security experts to assist you in this process. We even provide a FREE two hour assessment to get your started.
Because network security is an on-going management task, it is essential that both LAN managers and end-users have the skills required to protect your systems. We have developed a number of security courses that will assist your organization in maintaining a secure environment.
Completing a risk assessment and implementing technologies based on that assessment provides a sound foundation, but does not address the need for continued vigilance toward network security. Therefore having skilled security professionals available to monitor and implement new measures as they are needed is important. We provide training for your staff, or else our trained staff can assist your company in this effort with periodic assessments, and with our security monitoring service.
