Cyber Security

Protecting Your Business on a Digital Front

 

Cyber security training is a pivotal aspect of any modern business, ensuring that your company and employees understand the risks involved with sensitive and personal data leaks within your business. The internet has become a global tool for businesses and personal use, to a point where we can store and access data and information on almost anything. Many businesses operate from a client database, which is filled with personal information on their clients. Non-disclosure agreements, confidentiality agreements, and business-related contracts are also at risk of being leaked when discussing the world of cyber security. This brings us to the importance of training and awareness for your entire organisation.

 

Which Elements of My Business Will Be Protected with Optimal Cyber Security?

 

Intellectual Property (IP) is defined as a category of property that consists of intangible creations of the human intellect. Most businesses generate income based on their unique IP to target or create a Unique Selling Point (USP) for their products or services. There are various types of IP that include copyrights, patents, and trademarks. IP can also include trade secrets and methods of conducting business within a specific industry or market. Therefore, protecting your business’s IP becomes a necessity. The term “Intellectual Property” has become a commonly used term in several legal systems across the world, adding to the importance of confidentiality agreements between your business and internal/external parties.

 

Information assets and employee information are stored digitally for most modern businesses that utilise software to create and manage information databases. An information asset is defined as a body of information that has recognisable and manageable value, risk, content, and lifecycles. Employee information is a necessity for businesses, ensuring that an organisation can manage their employees efficiently. However, it remains personal information, which can have legal implications when leaked. Employee information also includes salary and payment information that could cause more than just legal implications when leaked through a cyber security breach. Therefore, ensuring that your business takes the necessary measures and actions to protect your information assets becomes a crucial part of day-to-day operations.

 

How Can I Protect My Business?

 

WWISE specialises in developing and implementing several Management Systems for businesses in accordance with ISO Standards. We also offer ISO 27001 Information and Cyber Security Training to ensure that your entire organisation develops a keen awareness for any cyber threats that may implicate your organisation. With us on your side, we can develop and implement an Information Security Management System (ISMS) to give you the necessary control over cyber security elements of your business. Together with our training solutions, you can ensure that your business is secure and ready to keep your digital assets safe and secure. The ISO 27001 Standard provides a framework on which we can develop an ISMS that is tailored for your business, no matter the size of your business or the industry in which you operate in.

 

The Basic Elements of the Iso 27001 Standard

 

ISO Standards are published by the International Organisation of Standardisations to deliver a framework of best practices that are internationally agreed-upon and implemented across the world. The ISO 27001 Standard handles specifically on Information and Cyber Security, delivering the principles on which we can develop an ISMS for your business accordingly. The result is a Management System that can seamlessly integrate into your business’s processes to ensure that your digital information and assets are protected. An ISMS can also be useful to track any data breaches and cyber threats to pinpoint any leaks, should they occur.

 

We are becoming more reliant on smart devices and digital storage in the world of business. Although it is to a business’s advantage to utilise the internet, software, and digital databases, it also creates the threat of cyber-attacks and the possibility of internal data breaches. If you want your business to comply with the ISO 27001 Standard, WWISE can assist you on such a journey. We can also align you with a corresponding Certification Body if you want to be certified for ISO 27001. We offer ISMS maintenance and training solutions to keep your business in the loop and up to date with the latest requirements.
