Think data breaches are only a threat to large firms? Think again. 51% of the medium-sized businesses surveyed for the government’s 2016 Cyber Security Breaches report had experienced a breach in the previous 12 months, as had 33% of the small businesses. 31% of survey respondents overall said the breach had stopped staff carrying out day to day work, 12% that they had been prevented from providing goods and services to customers, and 10% that they had seen a loss in revenue or share value.
The single greatest cyber threat to smaller businesses comes from organised crime groups. If they can get into your network, they can access personal data, selling names and address onto third parties. They can steal a user’s digital identify to obtain passports and set up bank accounts, and hack email address lists, sending spam messages to all your contacts. They can even intercept emails and change the text – such as substituting their bank account details for yours.
With the right precautions in place, it’s still possible to prevent most security breaches. We’re continually developing our own security offering, so customer networks stay safe. Ask us to review your security arrangements, and we’ll identify any weaknesses and recommend possible solutions.
We realise that switching can seem like alot of work, that’s why we have tried to take the hassle out of it for you with our ‘easy switch’ services.

There are many IT security solutions available from a multitude of software and hardware vendors and the products business choose largely depend on the way in which they operate. Huge sums of money can be invested in security, but a balance needs to be found to ensure that your business is adequately protected in the event of a security threat. San-iT will help you to understand the various threats apparent and what it is your business needs to do to ensure that its protected as best it can be without spending huge sums of money.
End user devices are targeted most often, generally via viruses and malicious malware that is designed to infect the user’s device. Once this device has been infected it can potentially allow access to your machine without your knowledge where data can be stolen and movements can be tracked and recorded. Therefore, it is essential to have adequate antivirus protection on all devices connected to the corporate network, along with other specific software that protects against malicious activity. Again, there are many options available on the market which largely depend on your business operations. For example, a company with access to payment details and customer data will require more protection than a company that deals with less sensitive data.
With many systems and services continually moving to the Cloud, there is a misconception that somehow corporate data becomes less secure. In fact, in having confidential corporate data in the Cloud, it is more secure. The reason for this is that Cloud providers have invested vast amounts of resource in securing Cloud environments, and this is consequently an advantage to small and medium sized businesses. The most insecure aspect of working in the Cloud, or indeed any IT system, is in fact the user by using weak passwords and businesses not enforcing strict security on the devices that they use. San-iT help businesses to understand the types of threats and how to prevent them, whilst educating users of the pitfalls and safer working practices.
