Many businesses employ multi-layered security systems containing network instruction detection, firewalls, anti-virus and encryption, yet fail to back this up with appropriate measures to inform and educate the business IT users. A security system needs to include technical measures that assist with protecting critical assets, but must also address the vital elements of staff education and adherence to company policy to ensure these measures are effective.
Xirco will work with you to review and develop a suite of policies and procedures to best suit your business. Whist the breadth would be dependent on the complexity of IT systems and business operations, these would typically include:
- Password policies
- Hardware and software acquisition policies
- Account management procedures
- Physical security policies
- Access controls and privileges
- Social media policies
- Remote access policies
- Encryption policies
- Email policies
Xirco will also work with your business to develop a comprehensive education programme to ensure that policies and procedures are suitably enforced and that staff at all levels are appropriately aware of risks to the business.
We were recommended to Xirco in June 2015 as we had a major IT Upgrade.The whole of the process was carried out with friendly professionalism, in a convenient manor which never interfered with our business operation. All aspects of the work was explained to us in a language we could understand - not computer technical jargon - and was completed with little input needed from us.I have never experienced such friendly, helpful and efficient service and we will continue to use Xirco for our IT Support - can highly recommend you give Xirco a call - great service and technical knowledge.
Having worked with Xirco very closely for a number of years, I would have no hesitation in recommending them as an IT partner. We have successfully implemented several IT projects within our business using Xirco and the team always ensure that project scopes, technical requirements etc are well explained, with no IT jargon. Xirco work hard initially in a project to understand the needs of our business, which always then results in an excellent solution. The level of support provided is outstanding in all areas both pre and post implementation.
