IT Security, do you need it?


What is IT Security?

After some businesses open their doors to customers and the cash starts to flow, they may not realize what is the need for IT Security? Every business has a computer and is connected to the internet. Either with a Laptop, Smartphone, or Desktop at home they all have the potential to be compromised. Unfortunately, if not protected correctly, they pose a risk for theft or damage.

We might think it’s enough to have a complex password but sometimes having an extra layer of protection helps. Our services at the REAL REBEL can provide a full outlook on your business to make sure it is secure.

We can answer this question for you. We can make sure that you know all the possibilities to can happen and how to prevent them. A very basic method for all account would be to make sure you use a two-factor authentication. Setting up a text message or using an application to send you a code or message after you made an attempt to login. This is the extra layer that is needed to prevent anyone from using your accounts.

What is Two-Factor Authentication?

Two-Factor Authentication is a form of security that uses another method to know you for you. Passwords sometimes are just not enough. Simple human error does occur and with the extra layer of authentication like a code or an application, can really help you stay secure. The application or code is sent after you enter a correct password, then you respond within a set time to confirm that it was you that made this attempt.

They come in the form of the following categories :

  • Something you know: This could be a personal identification number (PIN), a password, answers to “secret questions” or a specific keystroke pattern

  • Something you have: Typically, a user would have something in their possession, like a credit card, a smartphone, or a small hardware token

  • Something you are: This category is a little more advanced, and might include biometric pattern of a fingerprint, an iris scan, or a voice print
