Canberra Plumber Online Security

Online Security Case Study for Telstra Business Intelligence

Online security is a must for all businesses operating in this day and age in order to protect their customers and employees personal data.

Water Tight Canberra where recently identified by Telstra Business Intelligence as being an exemplary business when it comes to online security due to our knowledge, system’s and practices that help keep us, and our customers, secure.

As referenced in the report,

Tom Martin, the owner of Water Tight Canberra, realised that if he was going to rely on digital tools – like electronic job quotes – and store customer emails and company financial data, he needed to make online security a priority. “As we continued to implement new technology, we knew we needed to stay protected with straightforward and effective online security measures.”
The business conducted its own research and consulted an expert to evaluate its online security. “We dedicated time to learn about online security. It’s actually simple to put in steps like two-step authentication, anti-virus software and HTTPS encryption. It takes a minute, but it keeps things much more secure,” says Tom. Things like security training for new employees, securely storing customer data, having a mobile device management strategy and using a password management system are some of the essentials they’ve adopted.
Online security must be a priority for everyone in the business – from the administration team to each of its plumbers in the field – for it to be effective.
By using cloud-based programs to store documents and data securely, the business operates with up-to-date applications. And at regular meetings, staff check and update their own software and phone applications. “This ensures the not-so-tech-savvy plumbers can get support from the younger generation, if they need it.” These measures – along with an incident response plan – give Tom peace of mind that if an attack were to occur the effects would be minimal. “All of our data is recoverable.” “You’ve got to remember that using tech in the first place is saving you a hundred times in terms of efficiency. The slight inconvenience of making sure you’re doing it securely is tiny in comparison to what it could be saving you.”

    Found my go to plumber! Excellent service! Great explanation of work done, and great work done. Quick to arrive, quick and clean execution. Great result. First time home owner, after three plumbers in 10 months.. I've found my preferred professionals and fully recommend. 🙂

    Very professional job from start to finish – from easy booking process to job completion. We had a leak, the source of which was a mystery. Serviceman, Josh arrived at the scheduled time, listened carefully as the problem was explained, informed us of what he would do to investigate it, identified the source of the leak, repaired it and cleaned up the area completely. We were delighted, and would certainly call on Watertight again for any plumbing work, and highly recommend them to others.

    Called Water Tight when our old hot water system decided to cark it at the start of a cold winter's weekend. Andrew was helpful and clear about the costs of weekend work when I spoke to him on the phone. We booked them in and they were thoroughly professional in every aspect. Andrew turned up on time and was knowledgeable and able to give us quality recommendations on what to do. We had a replacement system up and running by Saturday lunchtime! The guys were polite and friendly and cleaned up after their work. Price was fair and reasonable for emergency weekend work. Highly recommended.
