Monitoring Software

Monitoring Software

What is Monitoring Software? Monitoring software is designed to enable an IT Department to retain visibility of all their IT systems, from standard PCs to complex infrastructure designed for datacentres. A network management agent allows you to monitor all desktops, servers, laptops, printers, firewalls, routers and switches. This is achieved through leveraging SNMP, NetFlow, Syslog, Traps and configuration backup – in effect everything every IT system uses to report on their status.

Identifying Cyber Security Incidents

What is a Cyber Security Incident? The UK is lucky to have a National Cyber Security Centre, a government-led centre of expertise and resources, so Hayachi Services will defer to their definition: 1. Attempts to gain unauthorised access to a system and/or to data. 2. The unauthorised use of systems for the processing or storing of data. 3. Changes to a systems firmware, software or hardware without the system owners consent. 4. Malicious disruption and/or denial of service. Tools and

Chambers Cybersecurity: retaining business

Why your Chambers Cybersecurity posture affects retention of business The results of a GOV.UK survey(external link) released in March 2020 re-established that cyber security breaches are becoming ever more frequent. The UK Government found 46% of UK businesses and charities reported a cyber-attack during the year. Of those, 33% claimed they experienced a successful cyber-attack against their systems at least once a week in 2020 – up from 22% in 2017. This of course also applies to Barristers’ Chambers – and when you are self-employed there are two things you need to

Email Security

Email Security Email Security is the primary vector of attack for cyber-criminals; in short this means if you want cost-effective security, invest early in Email Security and Endpoint Security.

Sustaining Network Security

Network Security – Making IT work Sustaining Network Security is fundamental to protecting your business. Many organisations will purchase a Firewall but fail to regularly patch (that is, update) their systems and this in turn creates vulnerabilities that cyber-criminals take advantage of. Many smaller businesses and charities naturally cannot afford annual penetration tests and monthly review of their IT Estates in order to confirm that everything is functional. This is despite 33% of new malware (Malicious Software) being file-less, and

Good Information Security

What is good Information Security? Information Security is a very broad term, it accounts for the security of any information system that an organisation uses – ranging from smoke-signals to quantum computers.

This is best demonstrated by how governments classify information and how to treat it. To follow on from the example of

When it comes to avoiding downtime there is only one thing which can really help: effective planning. If your

Preventing Ransomware

Consistently Preventing Ransomware Many IT Security experts use a certain turn of phrase and we echo it: they only need to be lucky once, we need to be lucky all the time.
