Security in the tech world is fluid. That is, security measures that are used today might be obsolete next month. A good IT solution will take this situation and others into consideration. Furthermore, security means being compliant as well. For example, at a minimum, medical facilities need to have a periodic HIPAA risk assessment. In addition, patient information must stay secure. Such conditions require antivirus, remote management software, firewalls, confidentiality and integrity (two out of three of the CIA triad), controlled access, scheduled password updates, updated software, secure hardware, etc. Security is not the metaphorical heart, soul, or backbone of a network. Security is the shield of a network. Some industries require a force field others require a wooden shield. Nevertheless, security is important. Without a protected network, a company could get its financial information hacked while the CEO is counting sheep in his or her sleep. We at ACG247 have experts taking care of your network 24/7.
