Are your data security policies keeping up with the rate of change? No one’s IT strategy was truly prepared for a pandemic. Today, businesses are working very differently from the way they ever expected. It’s forced a step change in IT with an accelerated move to public cloud platforms and with this, most businesses data security procedures quickly became outdated.
Our team not only helps you take advantage of the modern workplace, we also ensure you take the right measures to protect your data.
Cyber security is a constantly changing challenge for any business. In past decades, security used to be much simpler. All of your data was on premise and resided behind your corporate firewalls.
Now, with most of our information stored across multiple clouds and accessed from a multitude of corporate and personal devices, knowing how your data is being shared and accessed is becoming more difficult than ever. And one thing is for certain, you have more data to protect
Being unaware of the security threats within your business, could lead to you failing to land new deals, customers leaving, damage to brand and facing fines of thousands of pounds or in extreme examples, it could put you out of business.
Without robust security policies that are appropriate to the modern workplace, there is a risk that your insurance premiums could skyrocket or worse still, you could learn that you aren’t properly protected.
Whether you have suffered a security breach or just want the peace of mind that you have the right measures in place, we can help. Contact us today to get started.
The adoption of collaboration tools puts company information at greater risk. Moving from data centre or office-based applications to cloud based ones is leading to data being stored in multiple locations, leaving you not knowing how your data is being accessed, stored or shared.
Companies are finding that their current security policies do not reflect modern working practices.
When you take advantage of our InfoSec – Audit and Security Assurance service, you taking the necessary steps to protecting your company and your customers enablinge your employees to take advantage of the latest and greatest productivity and collaboration tools.
While we always hope a security breach never happens, it pays to be prepared. Leaving your company with appropriate and outdated security policies, processes and systems runs the risk of your data being compromised.
We can help you stay ahead of possible security breaches by performing audits of your system and checking for any potential weaknesses.
It’s one thing to discuss network security; but how do we actually determine whether or not something as intangible as information in a cloud remains secure?
Our process uses the following steps:
We always begin by understanding what you are trying to achieve. Has your business been breached and you need to address this? Are you looking to attain an accreditation such as cyber essentials or ISO27001? Or do you have a digital programme of works, and before you start, you wish to review your existing security policies? Once we understand your motivation, we can fashion an approach that is appropriate.
We then review the current state of the security policies and processes within your business and assesses how robust they are in practice.
We evaluate the controls and existing practices along with the features, methods, and processes that have been implemented to protect your data. We assess risks and issues by understanding who is accessing what data and how. Finally, we work with those accountable for data control, and those responsible for delivering it, to understand how robust your governance is.
The ultimate goal is to provide you with a high-level programme of works designed to address your infosec requirements. We provide you with a list of items that will facilitate you to achieve your goals and provide guidance on how to become compliant with industry standards and evolving best practices.
Regardless of the maturity of the InfoSec provision Formation will design, run and execute each individual security & compliance project in line with the budgets and time lines from the programme of works. Areas from Policy Creation, Document Classification, Identity and Access Management and Information Governance can be delivered with a full set of testing for each project to ensure that changes to the security framework are controlled and delivered to the best standards.
Once completed we can continually assess your data protection goals specified by the agreed compliance, security, privacy, and data protection standards, providing you with regular feedback and improvement actions.
