Information technology (IT) security is an ongoing concern for all businesses. Over the past five years, Australian businesses' reliance on computing technology has increased, as new technologies have allowed them to increase productivity significantly. The increasing accessibility of broadband internet means that businesses now engage in large levels of data transfer. This has helped facilitate the rise of ‘big data', where many businesses have been able to gather large amounts of data, which may be sensitive. Furthermore, the introduction of smartphones has allowed much of this data to be accessed nearly anywhere.
The industry offers managed IT security services. This includes firewall and intrusion prevention, security threat analysis and proactive security vulnerability and penetration testing. This also extends to incident preparation and response, including IT forensics.
