Newpath IT can help you devise an IT disaster recovery plan so that, if the worst happens, you can bounce back in the shortest time possible. Preparing for things like electrical outages or surges, flood, fire, theft or vandalism means you must protect your data, and potentially save your business from closing its doors, permanently. Our information security consultants have advice on locating temporary space, hardware replacement, software safeguards, and communications strategies to help you put your total office environment back together, and get your business back on track.
Security Services: Rapid advances in technology have brought new opportunities for commercial and government organisations of all sizes to extend their reach and enhance their services. Yet with all the advantages of the information age, organisations are also experiencing new vulnerabilities. As physical borders and paper-based processes are increasingly replaced by electronic ones, an organisation's most valuable asset–information on its customers and constituents is often left exposed. With too much to risk, leading organisations are shifting from viewing information security as a defensive strategy to an integral part of their overall IT and business posture.
With Newpath IT, businesses can articulate and implement a proactive, enterprise-wide security strategy that aligns with their overall business objectives, processes and applications to manage and reduce risk, ensure productivity, enhance information integrity and sharing, and comply with internal policies and complex industry regulations.
