Protect Against Hackers

Intrusion detection system

With the internet becoming such a huge part of life, both for people and businesses, cyber security is more and more important. 76 percent of organizations have said their reputation was damaged as a result of a breach of cyber security.

Especially with the next generation networks, cyber security is incredibly important. However, businesses are employing intrusion detection systems as well as intrusion prevention systems, which largely render people completely incapable of breaching cyber security systems and gaining access to privileged information.

For instance, in 2011 an international hacker gained access to roughly 3.6 million tax returns after breaking into computer files at the South Carolina Department of Revenue. Had the South Carolina Department of Revenue invested in next gen network security, this breach possibly could have been avoided.

But therein lies the problem. Intrusion prevention systems are crucial to stopping anyone who wants from breaking into confidential, secure information. Among the biggest threats to corporate data and systems traditionally comes from insiders, who have access to systems and data and potentially have the ability to do more damage than outside hackers.

Among the pieces of a powerful contemporary cyber security network is an enterprise firewall. They can be employed to keep out spyware, adware, viruses, trojans and worms, collectively known as malware.

Malware can cause security breaches by working as hooks for unauthorized people to grab onto sensitive information. But with the use of intrusion prevention systems, businesses and people can rest easy knowing their confidential information is as safe as possible.

Both the cost of a security breach and the cost for a lost or stolen record have declined in recent years. But with preventative methods, these costs can be made obsolete.

Ive had information stolen from me. Makes me wish I had employed preventative methods before it happened, not just after.

I remember when the playstation network was hacked a few years ago. It scared everyone, because credit card information was there. Thankfully nothing happened.
