System Security

Dark alleys alone at night, Mother-in-laws that aren’t quite there in the head, and computer hackers with too much free time… All of those things? One word: Frightening. While we can’t exactly help you with the dark alley situation (except maybe to tell you to stay away) and the mother-in-law thing? There’s no escaping that one, but hackers? We’ve got your back.

Let me introduce you to a little thing called “System Security” or in other words; a body guard for your files. One of THE BIGGEST threats to IT systems and networks today is security hackers, especially if you are a business that conducts financial transactions or store any personal data about your customers, because you aren’t only risking their information, but you are also risking YOUR reputation.

Now system security, or commonly called “cybersecurity” according to Wikipedia is the process of applying security measures to ensure confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data. Cybersecurity attempts to assure the protection of assets, which includes data, desktops, servers, buildings, and most importantly, humans. The goal of cybersecurity is to protect data both in transit and at rest. Countermeasures can be put in place in order to increase the security of data. Some of these measures include, but are not limited to, access control, awareness training, audit and accountability, risk assessment, penetration testing, vulnerability management, and security assessment and authorization.

With a business and network systems, comes vulnerabilities- or weaknesses that allow the hacker to reduce the system’s information assurance. At Olive Branch IT we understand that your main job, is running your business, not constantly trying to play blocker to individuals with malicious intent. Instead, We work with you to make sure your network is rock-solid secure to help prevent you from these types of attacks.

We can help you make sure your system will not be compromised, and have important financial and personal data stolen. And in addition? We recognize that viruses are a constant threat- always changing and evolving (like the flu) so we always make sure your network is running the latest in spy-ware and mail-ware protection, which is constantly updated as new threats are identified- very similar to releasing flu shots each year (except ours actually work…)

If this sounds like a service you could benefit from, we’d love to chat more in depth about exactly what we can do for you, and how we can help ensure your systems security!
