A friend of mine runs his own successful accountancy firm, and spends his time managing bookkeeping, payroll and tax returns on behalf of his clients. One day, he received an email from a client with an invoice attached, but soon after opening it, his computer started to act strange. Messages popped up on his screen, his desktop background changed, and he couldn’t open any of the client files saved in his hard drives.
Because of this, he was unable to process any of his clients accounts, and as it was coming up to a tax deadline, his clients were faced with fines due to late and overdue filings. And because of that, his firm took a knock to its reputation which made some of his clients leave and scared others away from working with him. It was a very stressful and worrying time for him.
He finally had to call in a computer specialist firm to help and try to restore his data. But this cost him tens of thousands, and as his backups were not up to date, there were many late hours spent manually re-entering data into his systems. And even with that, there was a lot of client data which simply could not be restored.
These days, if you look at how he has set up his IT systems, you will see many layers of redundancy and security at play, an opportunity where you can put in place a full Disaster Recovery plan to quickly overcome an IT disaster that could threaten his livelihood again.
In this course, you will learn how to recognise any gaps in the security of your IT systems and what you can do to plug them. By reducing your risk of cyber attack, you will not only protect your revenue and brand reputation, but also minimize the cost, scale and impact of any cyber attack if it does happen in the future.
