Ten IT security questions you need to consider…
1. Are your devices encrypted?
A windows password can be hacked in seconds so all devices containing third party data needs to be encrypted as per the data protection act.
2. Are your servers in a secure location?
Onsite servers need to be in a locked cabinet.
3. Is your remote access secure?
Cloud Servers need to be in a secure certified data centre with VPN access only. Local servers should only be accessed via VPN also. All data and email access through web browsers should be through a 256 bit encrypted connection only with a sound password protocol.
4. How secure is your Wifi?
Most companies don’t understand why this is so important despite media coverage.
5. Is your data backed up?
We meet small companies every week and about 30% of them do not have an adequate backup. In the region of 70% do not have any verification of whether the backup is actually working and 90% of them do not do any test data restores on a weekly, monthly or even yearly basis.
6. When was the last time your passwords were changed?
Are they secure? Who knows your password?
7. Are you hosting third party data?
If so, are you compliant with the data protection act 2003 and ePrivacy Regulation 2011.
8. Does your site have a disaster recovery plan?
It only takes hours to put a plan in place to decide what will happen in the event of failure.
9. What is your company’s email and Internet policy?
Who is liable in the event that something offensive is accessed or circulated in your company? What have you done to show a judge that your company has taken adequate measures?
10. Are all your devices up-to-date with security patches?
And remember, none of the answers to these queries need to be elaborate, time consuming or costly. We can do a security audit on your site and we’ll roll out the changes on your site as part of the service. Your business is our focus and our service is about ensuring your IT & cloud security needs reach the standards required.
