Why there is a need for information security?

Internet is our constant companion, wherever we go likely in our homes, offices and a lot of places in between. It is almost always within arms reach. It is connecting people around through information, data, files, records and more via medium of network devices.

Conducting day to day business can be consuming and stressful. Making sure that your company network is secure does not always rank number one on your list of things to do. Here are the top 5 reasons why security should be your top priority:

  1. First and foremost, without network security at work your livelihood is at stake.
  2. As a business owner, most of your important documentation and records are stored on a computer. Leaving your network unprotected means that at any time your system could be infiltrated by unwanted viruses, trojans or even worse – malicious hackers who could obtain and distribute personal information.

  3. Not only can your vital company information can be compromised, your identity could be stolen and used.
  4. Different types of computer viruses and trojans do different things. If a virus relays information to a third party your identity could be used by that person or worse. It could be sold to other people.

  5. If losing your identity isn’t bad enough, it can get worse.
  6. Without security you could unknowingly provide internet predators with your customer’s information. This means that your reputation as a company is at stake. Any business owner would agree that a good reputation is your best asset and a bad reputation could mean your demise.

  7. By having a good network security system in place, you will be saving money in the long run.
  8. Companies that are constantly putting out fires and spending unnecessary money to fix problems as they occur. Each time they pick up the phone to call an IT specialist money flies out the door. By being proactive you will keep your budget minimal.

  9. Using network security guarantees that you will be successful in your endeavors.
  10. By protecting your assets you will be able to focus on what you do best. Safeguarding your network allows others to trust in your ability to conduct business and do what is best for everyone.
