internet security policy antivirus

Viruses are a fact of modern computer life. They exist, they are out there and you don't want them on your computer or on your network.

There are three forms of defence against the threat of invasion by a computer borne virus:

  1. Technology
  2. Policies
  3. Training

Technology is the first and most obvious line of defence. Your computer, your network, your file servers, your email server and your internet connection all need to be protected. A recognised antivirus application needs to be applied to several points within your organisation. After the software has been installed it needs to be monitored and updated as often as the author produces revisions.

Policies are need to describe the attitude of the organisation to virus infection. They will outline where and how software applications will be applied. They will describe how staff will take care of their computer to ensure viruses are not introduction into the network.

Training is essential if staff, especially non-technical staff, are to be able to apply the policies in their day-to-day operations.

infoWEB can help with the application of all these strands of defences against computer virus infection.
