With almost all computers now connected by Internet and other networks, the security risks of data loss, network failure and server down like problems have increased significantly. Everyone using a computer and network system has to ensure proper security. This job requires analyzing the IT setup and determining the types of risks it faces. Threat discovery is an important part of this process. All possible ways hackers and rogue software can penetrate the IT system must be identified. It helps take appropriate measures to prevent any breach of the network.
Many organizations now allow their employees to bring their own device to the office or work from home. These devices are connected to the organization’s networked system. The staff is allowed to access, install, delete, send, receive and share data. It increases the risks and makes the organization’s IT infrastructures susceptible to security vulnerabilities. All such access routes must be monitored, controlled and managed properly to prevent data loss.
