The Importance of Cyber Security

‘The Importance of Cyber Security’

The importance of protecting your organisation is more paramount now, than ever.



Cyberattacks are now so common, recent reports show that hackers attack a computer every 39 seconds! 

Cybersecurity is important because it protects all categories of data from theft and damage, including sensitive customer information. 

This includes sensitive data, personally identifiable information (PII), protected health information (PHI), personal information, intellectual property, data, and governmental and industry information systems.



Without a cybersecurity program, your organisation cannot defend itself against data breach campaigns, making it an irresistible target for cybercriminals.

CSG offers expert I.T. services in the UK and have been delivering amazing results for SME’s since 1985. We take a proactive approach to IT security, and use a combination of industry leading tools designed to provide businesses with extremely high levels of protection for their data and systems.

With 55% of SME’s getting attacked every single year, and with 43% of ransomware attacks taking over a week to fix, now is the time to get your companies cyber security on lock. 

What is Cybersecurity?

Cybersecurity is the state or process of protecting and recovering computer systems, networks, devices, and programs from any type of cyber attack.

The Importance of Cyber Security

The fact of the matter is whether you are an individual, small business or large multinational, you rely on computer systems every day. Pair this with the rise in cloud services, poor cloud service security, smartphones and the Internet of Things (IoT) and we have a myriad of cybersecurity threats that didn’t exist a few decades ago.

Thankfully, here at CSG we offer a multi-layered approach to security, securing your infrastructure, endpoints, mobile devices and internet connections against emerging cyber threats.

The impact of a cyber attack, could be devastating for your business, with stark economic, reputational and regulatory costs.  

Not least the time it takes to recover and repair the damage, and Given the nature of cybercrime and how difficult it can be to detect, it is difficult to understand the direct and indirect costs of many security breaches.


How to Protect your Organisation Against Cybercrime

There are some simple steps you could take to decrease the risk of a cyber attack on your business:

  1. Encrypt and Backup data
  2. Educate staff on cyber security
  3. Create a security-focused workplace culture with Office 365. 
  4. Conduct regular audits or assessments such as our ‘Cyber Security Assessment 365’ 
  5. Secure sensitive data first
