Safeguarding your organisation
Cybersecurity incorporates many elements of your IT infrastructure and has responsibility for protecting the multiple ways that data is transferred between your workforce, external customers and suppliers. If you think about how data is transmitted and received within your organisation you can get an understanding of the channels of dataflow that need protecting. Fortunately, speciality hardware and software have been developed to help safeguard those points of access which are vulnerable to a cyber-attack.
Now organisations can benefit from best-practice frameworks in operation to help benchmark cybersecurity policies and sophisticated machine learning intelligence technologies designed to operate both proactively and reactively ensuring your organisation is less susceptible to cyber threats.
To combat the potential risks of cyber threats to UK business and industry the UK Government have created an assurance framework named Cyber Essentials. Cyber Essentials is effectively an audit of the IT security which surrounds your networking infrastructure and helps you to understand how effective you currently are at being protected from the risk of hacking, and the measures you need in place to ensure future safeguarding to minimise your chances of becoming a target.
By your organisation achieving a Cyber Essentials accreditation, it showcases to those you work with (customers and suppliers) and those that work for you that you regard cybersecurity of the utmost importance.
