In computing, a firewalls are  network security systems that monitors, and controls incoming and outgoing network traffic based on predetermined security rules.

A firewall typically establishes a barrier between a trusted network and an untrusted network, such as the Internet.

Most organisations and IT managers know what firewalls are and what they should do. The challenge in today’s ever-changing cyber security landscape is ensuring that your firewall does the job it’s supposed to do. Cloud based applications, mobile work practices, IoT can all have an impact on data security.

The extent of cyber security threats has not diminished. In fact, this survey, the fifth in the series, shows that cyber-attacks have evolved and become more frequent.

Almost half of businesses (46%) and a quarter of charities (26%) report having cyber security breaches or attacks in the last 12 months. Like previous years, this is higher among medium businesses (68%), large businesses (75%) and high-income charities (57%).

Cyber Security defences are like owning a car. If you keep driving without checking the tyre pressure, fuel, oil, screen wash levels etc, sooner or later you are going to break down. You must continually check your firewall and other security measures for weaknesses.
