Security for Growing Businesses

SB Network Security Basics

Cybersecurity is a complicated business that can stretch an organisation’s resources and capabilities. As headlines are regularly populated with stories about breaches, denial of service attacks, data theft, and ransomware, it’s worth reminding ourselves that these attacks don’t just happen to other people. The UK is the third most targeted country in the world, ranking only behind the USA and Ukraine.

Improving network security is vital for small businesses, and while the problem can seem daunting, there are key basics that any business can implement. Establishing effective network security may include some or all of the following methods:


  • Access control
  • Antivirus and antimalware software
  • Application security
  • Behavioural analytics
  • Email security
  • Firewalls
  • Intrusion prevention systems
  • Mobile device security
  • Network segmentation
  • VPN


You can read more about each of these areas, plus six basic steps that you can take to protect your network here.
