The Problem

In an information economy, cyber security means protecting your business. With cyber threats so widespread the confidentiality, availability, and integrity of your data is paramount. Whether, threats are internal, external or even environmental – every organisation should consider what risks they are vulnerable to.

Identification of cyber security risks to your organisation is the first step in their mitigation and elimination. No organisation can be 100% immune, but those that take proactive measures are statically less likely to suffer a cyber security breach.

27% of organisations suffered infection by viruses or malware
47% of organisation suffered information security incidences involving staff
16% of organisations suffered information security breaches involving outsiders
5% of organisations suffered theft or fraud involving computers

Cyber security protection in your organisation should begin with a ground up Risk Assessment based on the information assets you have.

What is Cyber Security?

Cyber security or more traditionally, Information Security, or InfoSec, is the practise of defending information from various threats. The terminology can be applied to either psychical or electronic data. The main principles are confidentiality, integrity an availability. Essentially, are you keeping your data confidential and safe from unauthorised modification and is it available to use when you need it.

There are a number of management systems for creating robust practices around cyber security, the most prevalent being, ISO 27001 in Information Security Management and Cyber Essentials. Most of these systems require a top-level risk assessment to be performed and processes and controls built from that starting point.

Why do anything?

Data losses and the subsequent legal cases have highlighted the need to take a serious look at what your organisation does. Protection against intellectual property and the data of your clients is a legal requirement.  You don’t just need to protect against the illusive hackers, but also threats from within and around your organisation.

Unleased have a variety of solution to help protect against cyber security, our latest offering Security-as-a-service is proving very popular. For more information get in touch?

Architect your systems with security in mind

Unleashed implement ISO 27001 and Cyber Essentials solutions. We look at the technology, attempting to de-risk architecture we build and work back to the management systems.

As well as the technical element of cyber security, we believe in the education of your IT users. Most attacks are successful because IT users don’t have the training or knowledge to stop them. Education is key to keeping you safe. Unleashed can run training workshops to educate your users. For more details, get in touch?

This is an alternative approach from simply documenting systems and making necessary ad-hoc tweaks.  We believe that the technical solution should be simple and streamlined so that it is robust.
