Cyber security and cost volume profit analysis
Unauthorized personnel intrusion or access to computer systems are one of the greatest threats. Unauthorized personnel can be anyone from disgruntled employees or ex-employees to hackers and terrorist organizations, all of whom can use their skills and resources to gain access to sensitive data within an organization’s IT infrastructure. Businesses must be extra careful when it comes controlling access to their network. This includes setting up multi-factor authentication (MFA), which requires multiple credentials from users trying to log in.
Because of potential security threats, it may be prohibited to use certain types of devices in some facilities. This can include a range of items such as cameras and cell phones equipped with built-in recording equipment that could record classified information; USB drives which can easily download large amounts of data very quickly; wireless communication devices like Bluetooth and Wi-Fi enabled gadgets which could also pose a security risk by allowing unauthorised users onto the network; and cellular transmitters which could potentially cause interference with the company’s communications infrastructure. Organizations will often restrict what devices can be brought to work in order for secure access to their networks and protect sensitive data.
