Unauthorized Access

A Glossary

Unauthorized Access


Unauthorized access refers to the practice of gaining access to computer systems or data without permission from the authorized owner. This can include accessing confidential or sensitive information, modifying or deleting data, or causing disruption or damage to computer systems.

Unauthorized access can occur through various means, such as hacking, phishing, or exploiting vulnerabilities in software or network security. Unauthorized access can have serious consequences for businesses and organizations, including loss of sensitive data, financial losses, legal liability, and damage to reputation. Managed IT services can help prevent unauthorized access through the use of access controls, encryption, network security measures, and regular system monitoring and auditing.

It is important for businesses to have robust security policies and procedures in place to protect against unauthorized access, and to educate employees about the risks and best practices for preventing security breaches.

We have been using Quikteks as our IT support team for many years. They have always been responsive, polite, thorough and professional. Their techs are all personable and speak to us in language we can understand. I recommend them to any business owner that wants to spend time on his business and leave the IT to the pro's.
