Main Causes of Data Breaches
Let’s take a look at what is the main cause of data breaches today. This is how companies lost data in 2016: Hacking or malware leads the way with 57%, followed by unintended disclosure. In fact, incidents caused by hacking or malware represent over 90% of all the breached records last year. A staggering amount of data that could have been protected with better security. Encryption is universally acknowledged as one of the best ways to prevent data breaches and to mitigate risks. Premier Charity Solutions provide managed solutions to ensure your website is kept safe from online threats.
Tailored Bespoke Security Solutions
Premier Charity Solutions has a variety of managed cyber security packages that can be tailored to suit your charity needs. It is important to review and consider your current data protection capabilities. Having at least the minimum requirements in place is best practice to protect your charity against viruses, malware and data leakage.
ANTI-VIRUS & MALWARE PROTECTION
Sophos Central Endpoint Protection blocks malware and infections by identifying and preventing the handful of techniques and behaviours used in almost every exploit. Endpoint Protection doesn’t rely on signatures to catch malware, which means it catches zero-day threats without adversely affecting the performance of your device. So, you get protection before those exploits even arrive.
With Microsoft 365 Advanced Threat Protection, you can protect your cloud mailboxes against new, sophisticated attacks in real time. By protecting against unsafe attachments and expanding protection against malicious links, it provides advanced security features to provide better zero-day protection.
Ransomware is the number one cyber attack affecting organisations today. It encrypts your files and holds them hostage until the ransom is paid, causing massive disruption to your charity's productivity. Sophos Intercept X features CryptoGuard, which prevents the malicious spontaneous encryption of data by ransomware—even trusted files that have been hijacked.
Each year, millions of laptop computers are misplaced, stolen, or lost; many of them containing important and sensitive data.
