Cyber Security Essentials for Businesses

It is no longer about “IF” you will be attacked, but “WHEN”. Are you ready?

Why Cyber Security?

In today’s data-driven, highly distributed world, companies now use the internet to undertake the very basic of business tasks, to advertise and sell, find new markets, customers and staff, communicate with customers and suppliers, process financial transactions, amongst others.

The Internet brings huge business opportunities and benefits; it also brings some security risks. It is increasingly important to manage these risks to take advantage of the internet whilst protecting your business.

Every day there are attacks on the IT systems of companies like yours, attempting to steal information and money, or disrupt business activities. More customers are now demanding that their suppliers are secure, making cyber security a business necessity for companies.

I have worked with Rhics for the last 7 years on several projects. They have always delivered on time and within budget. Their after sales support to deal with any issues is second to none. They branded our company over 5 years ago and we still work with this corporate ID today. Over the years, we have worked on numerous web design, graphic design, training and other projects with Rhics and I can confidently say they are model professionals. I fully recommend them. www.protenint.com
