Protecting IT data and systems

Online security is vital to protect your company's virtual assets (electronic data) and IT systems.

Data protection and a secure online presence will build your customers' trust and help you meet legal obligations, such as privacy laws.

IT data and systems are at risk of hacking, malware, viruses, spam and online scams that may corrupt your hardware or allow criminals to steal private data.

Protection includes providing a secure site through a secure socket layer (SSL) certificate, backing up data, authentication and use of passwords.

This guide explains how you can identify and protect your online systems against external and internal threats, and how to put in place IT protection policies and procedures.
