Businesses risk serious security breaches if they delay policy reviews

Companies that hold policy reviews only once or twice a year risk serious breaches of security on their networks and should take stock every quarter instead, according to a new survey.

The research, carried out by CenturyCom, the network security specialist, claims that in many cases staff already know the weak spots and urges management to create an environment in which issues can be discussed openly.

Clive McCafferty, managing director at CenturyCom, said: ‘You need the business acumen to know where your assets are and the value of what you are protecting. The highest levels of technical expertise are also required to know every possible way into the network. Setting up a password is not enough. You have to guarantee no one will get past it.’
