Internet Security Consulting Support and Services: Naperville, Aurora, Chicago Il
What is Internet Security?
The Internet today is a widespread information infrastructure, since it is free flow of information; it is inherently an insecure channel for exchanging information. Internet security is the set of rules and measures taken against such attacks. National Institute of standards and technology mainly oversees the issues of security and sets forth the rules and regulations. Different methods have been used to protect the of data over the internet. This includes encryption, in which data is transformed and a decryption key is generated for the receiver of the data.
Security concerns are in some ways peripheral to normal business working, but serve to highlight just how important it is that business users feel confident when using IT systems. Security will probably always be high on the IT agenda simply because cyber criminals know that a successful attack can be very profitable. This means they will always strive to find new ways to circumvent IT security, and users will consequently need to be continually vigilant. Whenever decisions need to be made about how to enhance a system, security will need to be held uppermost among its requirements.
Intrusion Detection/Prevention Aurora, Naperville Il
Intrusion Prevention is a preemptive approach to network security. In addition to actively monitoring network traffic (Intrusion Detection), the goal is to proactively identify threats. These threats could then be neutralized before your business is impacted. In addition to following best practices to design your network, this could involve intentionally trying to compromise (hack) your network in a controlled environment. Let OSG perform a comprehensive network audit to help identify these risks before they impact your business.
Internet Content Filtering Aurora, Naperville, Chicago and Suburbs
Internet Content Filtering is necessary for businesses of all sizes. Unfortunately, you can’t trust everyone.
Internet Content Filtering gives you the ability to control the websites that your employees have access to. Unless you are proactive, employees with Internet access have unlimited online access to entertainment, video poker, music downloads, shopping, porn, videos, banking and more. Recent studies show that over 50% of employees use the internet for an average of 3 hours a day for non-work activities.

Small Firms Need Internet Security Too!
Despite the real threat of hacking and online thievery, a lot of small businesses do not consider themselves affected by it. While dependent on their computer systems for data storage, few realize that all it takes is one breach to destroy a cultivated relationship with clients and the company’s own financial status.
StaySafeOnline.org, a website of the National Cyber Security Alliance, has released a study that chronicles the cyber security practices and attitudes of small businesses. Conducted in partnership with Visa, the study shows some interesting, if not disturbing, results.
It turns out that most small businesses are highly dependent on their computer/IT/ data systems, where they store important information, from sensitive company financial records to personal client information such as credit card info, addresses and phone numbers, and more. However, many believe that they will not be targeted by hackers and online thieves; and less than half have data security systems in which they are confident. In general, small businesses have, at best, a mediocre security system.
Few realize, though, that it only takes one breach to compromise a company’s finances and relationships with clients. And if you have less than stellar security, stealing from you is easier. You might not have as many online assets as big businesses, but hackers can make a hefty profit by victimizing several easy marks as opposed to bigger and riskier efforts with more secure systems of larger firms.
Don’t take a risk with important data, and don’t compromise the relationships and reputation you’ve built with your clients over the years. Good security is always worth it. If you’re interested in knowing more about beefing up your security through company policies, software, and user education, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We’d be happy to sit down with you and discuss a security blueprint that’s cost effective and custom built to meet your specific needs.
