4 ways we protect your business from cybercrime

Updated: Mar 31



There is no doubt about it, the threat of cyber-attack is on the rise.


To give you some idea of the scale of attacks and the consequences for businesses, take a look at some of these GDPR breaches that made the headlines.


We are constantly bombarded by the need to protect our data, so much so it can become overwhelming. With so many things we’re supposed to be doing, it can be tempting to just ignore it all and hope that it will go away.


Unfortunately, that just isn’t an option for innovative, conscientious businesses in 2022.


To keep your precious assets, namely your confidential, personal and/or financial staff and client data safe there are several steps you need to take.


Here you’ll learn about some of the ways we help our clients keep their data safe. If you have taken all the necessary steps to protect your client data, then you can be assured your own, your business, your staff and your client’s information is safe and secure.



1. DUO Multi Factor Authentication

Over 80% of hacking-related breaches leveraged weak, default or stolen passwords.

Implementing simple, yet effective, 2 step verification, such as DUO Security, ensures the people accessing your network are who they say they are.


How it works. When a member of staff first logs into your IT network, regardless of where they are based, or which device they are using, they will be asked if it is them who is logging in.


This simple 2 step verification, ensures no unauthorised people are accessing your private business information, allowing them to copy, steal and hold you to ransom over your data.

Additional Security Measures for 2022 and beyond.

The nature of cybercrime is that it evolves and adapts to take advantage of any weaknesses in your network security. The huge change to working from home, has opened up more opportunities to cybercrime. Users are working more independently and are not under the rigorous checks and scrutiny of having the IT team onsite. In answer to the growth in these potential threats, CJAZ have partnered with Nettitude to provide even more protection to our clients.



1. Cybercrime Penetration Testing

Essentially, we can simulate a hacking scenario to test whether your staff can detect a potential attack and whether they know what to do, when one occurs.



2. Compliance & Risk Management

Every week we hear about huge international companies receiving humongous fines for data breaches. Often the fines are reflective of the amount of data accessed and lost. Times have changed. To mitigate risk, the best thing you can do is unsure you have taken all the necessary steps to protecting your confidential client data. It’s not enough to have a templated Data Privacy document on your website, it’s not enough that staff tick a box to say they have attended this year’s IT Security Compliance Online Training. Nettitude set up rigorous tailored onsite training sessions and will advise exactly what your IT Security policy and procedures need to be.



3. Proactive Monitoring

Basically, your company is constantly at risk of cyber-attack and probably does encounter several attacks a week, a month, or a year. This extra layer of defence allows us to measure the frequency and nature of the attacks and put additional measures in place, where they are needed most. This will allow CJAZ to monitor and report cybercrime for your company, notifying you of any additional risks.
