IT Security is something that concerns everyone. There are regular reports on companies being hacked, but this is just the tip of the iceberg; many hacks go unreported. It is no exaggeration to say that every system connected to the internet is under constant threat of attack, and the people doing this rarely discriminate on who they target. This means criminals are not only going after the large companies, they will also target small business and even employees personal systems in efforts to circumvent security and gain access to data.
Because of the world we live in, IT Security is something that everyone needs to take seriously, but none more so that company directors. Directors have obligations in law to ensure a company is managed diligently, which can include appropriate cyber-security controls (sections 172 and 174, 2006 Companies Act).
A security breach can be catastrophic for a business of any size. Whether this is a virus outbreak, defacement of a website, or theft of data, the impacts can be significant. These can range from taking your business out of action for several days, through to long lasting repetitional damage and financial penalties. However, securing a business from these threats needn’t be onerous. IT security should be seen as an enabler for businesses, not something that creates barriers.
