Firms could be looking at their IT operations in the coming weeks and months in a bid to become more productive and improve their financial situation, but they have to remember the importance of security. Cyber threats are a growing reality for all types of companies and those who ignore the risks involved in this area might well find themselves being targeted by online criminals.
Businesses that don't have a level of protection in place to block these cyber threats may find an attack is hugely damaging to them and it can take a long while to recover from an incident.
It's therefore vital firms consider what their IT systems and data centers need to have to reduce the risk of the company becoming a victim of cybercrime during the course of 2013.
Some businesses are more at risk of being hit by cyber criminals than others and in some cases, firms are having to repel dozens or even hundreds of attacks every day.
Even those who are yet to become a victim of this type of attack cannot afford to be complacent, as if they let their guard down there is a chance they could well get caught out.
When rather than if
Eugene Kaspersky, founder and chief executive officer of the security firm Kaspersky Lab, has even warned it is a matter of time before a major cyber warfare attack happens.
"Some enterprises are facing thousands of attacks a day, while others wonder if they are going to be hacked or not. This will occur across all industries and infrastructures and we have to think and accept that as a reality. We live in a dangerous world," he was quoted as saying by CNBC.
IT departments need to be aware of the dangers of cyber threats and ensure protection is in place to prevent criminals from being able to break into systems and cause untold damage.

Other providers require extra money for bandwidth you may not even need. SnelServer.com differs from other providers by providing bandwidth pooling across all your servers at no extra cost. If your other servers have plenty of bandwidth left, we allow you to pool the bandwidth to another server that requires more. This enables you to save money and you can use your dedicated server more efficiently.
High availability of servers are extremely important to our customers, thus we take uptime seriously. We offer 99,9% uptime on all our dedicated servers and third party monitoring to prove it. Moreover, we have a completely redundant network and we can execute network maintenance without any packet loss on your end.
We offer additional flexibility by allowing you to upgrade your server at any time. You can upgrade your server without having to renumber your IP addresses or lose your data. All our dedicated servers come with hot swap drives, so the upgrades can often be done without any downtime.
SnelServer.com requires no contracts because we are confident that you will enjoy our flexible, fast and high performance servers which are completely dedicated to your needs. Hence, we have no obligations; you can cancel your dedicated server simply by not renewing it. This means your server will automatically expire on its expiry date. We only want you to stay because you are satisfied, not because a contract requires you to.
