Cyber-Attacks: Don’t be the next business in the headlines!


Cyber-Attacks are on the rise...

Anyone reading or watching the news recently would have found it hard not to notice the recent spate of high-profile cyber-attacks during May and June 2024. Above are just a few of the more noticeable ones.

Of course there are many ways that a business can fall victim to cyber-attacks, right through from socially engineered attacks on specific employees to the most sophisticated manipulation of software. In all cases there has to be a weakness to go after – limiting these weaknesses is by far the best way to defend yourself.

Admittedly zero-day attacks still happen, but these are rare. In the vast majority of cases where software-based vulnerabilities are exploited it is because an attacker is using a known issue with an out-of-date application or operating system.

Keeping your operating systems and applications patched and up to date is one of the most effective defences against Cyber-Attacks.

Day-to-day patching is often seen as “boring” or can be the last thing that a busy IT Team have time to do – it is often too easy to put off when something else is being demanded or a high-profile new IT project is being implemented.

Workspace IT can help. Operating System updates and application management are our bread and butter. We can help put in tools and processes that will ensure that your Windows desktops are always patched and up to date and that your application estate is effectively managed and updated proactively to a schedule.

We can work with your IT and Security teams to take the maintenance burden away and react to alerts from any vulnerability management tool such as ControlUp SecureDX, Rapid7, Tenable, Qualys, etc.
