October marks the 16th annual National Cyber security Awareness Month (NCSAM). Here at CTS, we understand the importance of Cyber security. This year’s message is to, Own IT. Secure IT. Protect IT., reminding everyone of the role we all play in online safety and security at home and in the workplace.
CTS recently obtained a cyber security certificate which shows the business has achieved a robust level of security that provides safe transferal of data in and out of the company. The certificate also entails that CTS follow a certain standard ensuring data is protected – such as password policies, access rights to certain locations etc.
There is now an increased prominence on cyber security in organisations due to many crippling cyber attacks. Like many businesses, CTS rely on technology to be connected at all times and conduct work effectively. Therefore, it is vital for more businesses to follow in the footsteps of CTS and introduce a robust, high level of cyber security.
CTS IT systems manager, Joel Caldwell states the importance of Cyber Security;
“Cyber security is present in everything we do these days, from sending an email to buying something online, each with their own set of risks.
“In reality, security is only ever a catch-up game between the creation of a new threat and the patching to protect against it.
“If you are to take one thing forward regarding Cyber Security it is to check, check and check again. Watch for the unusual links on a web-pages, be wary of email links and if you aren’t sure if something is official, call the company and check if what was sent was genuine.”
