A recent article in
the “Processor” , a computer industry trade journal, noted that “People are
often the weakest link in any security structure.”
You have, of course ,
anti-virus software , and you make sure it’s run every night. You are also
sure to update it’s viral definition files frequently. You also have a
firewall ; so why do you need to worry what the “Processor” says ?
“Regardless of all the protection your resources allow, all it takes is one
employee inadvertently opening a tainted file in a spam message or on a disk
brought in from home to unleash …” you know what.
We are pleased to help
you with both the technical and the procedural side of this problem. Our
favorite story is of the son of a client ; the client bought and had us
install a Cisco hardware firewall. His
network stayed secure for six months – until – his son put music sharing
software (Kaza) on a computer behind the firewall , thus creating a huge
security hole. It took just days until a Russian virus was sending credit
card information back to Moscow.
Be careful and call us if
you need help.
