In Observance of National Cybersecurity Month, Miles Technologies Stresses Need For IT Security
October 30, 2009 – Miles Technologies, a leading provider of business technology solutions, is calling businesses to take action in accordance with the sixth annual National Cybersecurity Awareness Month sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security.
The theme for this October's National Cybersecurity Awareness is "Our Shared Responsibility" to emphasize the need for all computer users to protect themselves at home, work and school.
According to Chris Miles, CEO of Miles Technologies, cyber security for businesses begins with the identification and resolution of potential vulnerabilities. "With the overwhelming number of security threats that exist today, many businesses are vulnerable to a multitude of threats, some of which they have never even thought about."
"One of the most important things a business can do in order to uphold its security responsibilities is to conduct a professional information security evaluation. By assessing networks, applications, physical facilities and other critical areas, businesses can identify where the threats exist in order to resolve these vulnerabilities before they are exploited."
Miles stresses the need for businesses to identify both internal and external security vulnerabilities in order to remain proactive in protecting confidential business information.
