In today’s digital era, network security is paramount for businesses of all sizes. In Australia, cyber incidents are on the rise; according to the Australian Cyber Security Centre, they’ve received one cybercrime report every ten minutes over the past year.
Disturbingly, an estimated 60% of these targeted small to medium-sized businesses, resulting in significant financial and reputational damage. Given the immense reliance on digital networks for day-to-day operations, securing them is not just an IT concern but a core business imperative.
A network security consultant from Agilient can provide you with the expertise to fortify your network, ensuring the ongoing security and integrity of your business’s digital assets.
What is a Network Security Consultant?
A network security consultant is a specialised professional who comprehensively understands the intricacies of digital networks and the potential vulnerabilities they might harbour. They assist organisations in identifying, assessing, and mitigating risks within their digital infrastructure.
Their expertise spans various aspects of network security, including firewalls, intrusion detection systems, VPNs, and other advanced security protocols. They don’t just focus on technology; they also factor in human behaviour and potential threats that may arise from external and internal sources.
With a deep knowledge of the latest cyber threats and evolving tactics of cybercriminals, network security consultants guide organisations in establishing robust defence mechanisms, maintaining up-to-date security measures, and ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements.
