Data security is a risky thing.
Getting hacked once could land you in a law-suit; losing your data to a virus could be a significant setback to your operations. Your business’s network security is far too critical to leave to chance.
The security risks of today are different than they were ten years ago, and flexibility is key in developing your business security plan. AIE of Chicago understands this, and our consultants look carefully at your business structure, industry requirements, and particular needs as we develop your security plan.
AIE works to defend you from two security risks.
- Transfer of information. A patient’s medical records, the company’s financial information, or a donor’s credit card need to be secure from prying eyes, both inside and outside of the company. The unauthorized transfer of critical information can happen through hacking the network, or through malicious programs that, once accidentally loaded onto a user’s computer, transfer information to other places. User security settings can also affect this aspect of security.
- Destruction of information. Viruses, worms, and Trojan horses may not be designed to collect sensitive information from your business network, but the presence of a virus puts your data at risk for destruction. Network downtime or damaged data due to malware puts your business operations at risk, limiting employee productivity and potentially losing critical information permanently.
AIE approaches business network security in Chicago with an organized process, seeking first to identify your security risks through a security audit, then to set policies in place, and finally to manage it on a day-to-day, month-to-month basis. The end result? A business network that is fully prepared to face whatever risks cyberspace may bring.
