Cyber Security

Cyber Security means protecting your business. With cyber threats so widespread the confidentiality, availability, and integrity of your data are paramount. Whether, threats are internal, external or even environmental – every business should consider what risks they are vulnerable to.

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

What is Cyber Security?

Cybersecurity or more traditionally, Information Security, or InfoSec, is the practice of defending information from various threats. The terminology can be applied to either psychical or electronic data. The main principles are confidentiality, integrity and 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 cybersecurity, 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 your clients’ data is a legal requirement.  You don’t just need to protect against the elusive hackers, but also against threats from within and around your business.

Architect your systems with cyber security in mind

Unleashed can help your business to implement ISO 27001 and Cyber Essentials standards.

As well as the technical element of cybersecurity, 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 to 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.
