Today, no one can afford to ignore the threat from cybercrime. The first step in protecting yourself from cyber threats is to understand where you are vulnerable. Next, you need a defence-in-depth approach to your security. This means training your staff to recognise and respond to common threats. You need clear processes and procedures to tackle security incidents. You also need to invest in technology such as firewalls, access control, anti-virus and data backup. By having an awareness of the risks and taking basic security precautions, you can defend against most common threats, show good governance and comply with data protection regulations.
Basic cyber security checklist:
- Introduce IT policies & security procedures
- Setup & configure firewalls correctly
- Setup access controls & user privileges
- Setup security software such as anti-virus & Web protection
- Update software regularly & install security patches
- Monitor systems for suspicious activity
- Use reliable data backup solutions
- Train staff to raise awareness of security threats.

Modern Networks will scan your IT systems and make a thorough assessment of your hardware, software, setup and access controls. Next, we will produce a detailed report on the current state of your IT security. The report will highlight all the risks based on threat level, and the actions needed to fix them.
