Expertise IT security

Information security or IT security is becoming increasingly important. By training everyone involved (IT and non-IT) and giving more attention, a better level of security can easily be achieved.

Why information security

Information security is important from three perspectives:

  • To prevent direct damage. Companies and organizations offer more and more services online. In order to prevent abuse, security must be in order.
  • From privacy and data protection. All companies that process personal data are obliged to handle this properly and carefully.
  • To prevent reputation damage. Anyone who does not have their security in order can appear negatively in the news and lose the trust of customers through this.

For these reasons, IT security is high on the agenda of many organizations. ICT Institute helps in taking practical steps to improve.
