Cyber Security Awareness – Solutions for Your Business

 

We live in a time where businesses and organisations utilise Information Technology to reach their target markets with websites and social media platforms. This allows businesses to utilise online marketing tools to promote products and services, interact with their audiences, and get direct feedback. Businesses can also use the internet as a means of communication when working from home. When using a software-based database, businesses have easy access to client information, employee details, and financial records. However, such digital assets require protection against cyber-attacks. WWISE can deliver useful cyber security solutions for your business.

 

The Problem with Digital Assets

 

The internet is growing and evolving every single day. This puts pressure on cyber security solutions for businesses, as these solutions must be prepared for uncertainties and able to adapt to avoid any compromised data. Our ISO 27001 Information Security consulting and training solutions can give your company the means to be ready when such a threat presents itself, protecting your assets with optimal solutions. WWISE can develop and implement an Information Security Management System (ISMS) that can be regularly maintained to improve and stay up to date with ISO standard regulations regarding cyber security. By utilising the ISO 27001 Standard as a framework, we can develop and implement a tailored ISMS to suit your business requirements perfectly. As a result, your business can work towards ISO compliance as well, leading to possible certification through an accredited certification body.

 

Does My Business Truly Require Cyber Security?

 

If your business has any digital records of legal agreements, non-disclosure agreements, employee contracts, payroll information, or personal details on customers and/or employees, your business truly requires a functional and operational method to protect your digital assets from any potential data leaks or cyber-attacks. Organisations commonly make the mistake of underestimating the damage that a cyber-attack could cause. Most recently, a video game developer and publisher has been a victim of a ransomware attack, leading to several sensitive data such as game source codes and internal legal documents being copied and sold by hackers. This should serve as a testament that organisations should always be aware of the possibility of a cyber-attack on their digital assets.

 

Account passwords can be tracked and duplicated, which means that they should be changed frequently and thoroughly to avoid any basic data leaks. However, your business will be at risk of an internal data leak if your employees are not fully aware of possible cyber-threats that extend past simple account passwords. Therefore, the importance of high-level cyber security for your company cannot be stressed enough to avoid any legal action or repercussion of sensitive and proprietary information being leaked.

Utilising the ISO 27001 Standard for Cyber Security Solutions

 

ISO Standards are published by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO), consisting of members from standardisation organisations around the world. Their purpose is to compose and publish internationally agreed-upon best practices and guidelines as frameworks for various Management Systems. The ISO 27001 Standard handles specifically on Information Security to ensure that your business can protect your digital assets from potential cyber-attacks and data leaks, whether internal or external. With us on your side, you can have the peace of mind that your business can work towards improving cyber security measures and procedures to minimise any possibility of compromising sensitive data and falling victim to a cyber-attack.
