The Internet is a dangerous, anarchic place, and we always adopt what we believe to be appropriate and effective security precautions for our clients’ system. However, as we are dealing with smaller clients in the 10-200 user space, many of these feel that they are simply too small to be targeted by hackers, and often request lowering of their security settings as they often find them a little cumbersome, and thus reduce ease of use of their systems.
They make this request to lower their security settings because they feel that they are simply too small to be targeted by hackers and that they are not at risk. In our opinion, nothing could be further from the truth!
