Business IT security policies needs updating


Businesses have been urged to update their IT security policies to ensure they don't fall victim to cybercrime.

Rising levels of hacker attacks has put a definite focus on both software and infrastructure security measures in the industry and this shift in focus could be having a beneficial effect on IT security jobs recruitment in the UK.

Ian Shaw, managing director of MWR Infosecurity, said that system-level solutions are not the only way to tackle IT security threats.

He claimed that businesses must make sure that new recruits - even those who have not been taken on to fill IT jobs - are up to scratch with their internal IT security policies.

"Many of these attacks are a combination of technical attacks [which] use quite specific exploits and a form of social engineering where they are targeting specific employees of companies," he added.

Mr Shaw's comments follow a report from internet security firm McAfee, which showed that hackers are using online attacks to get hold of proprietary information and trade secrets, and sell them on to third parties.
