Cyber Security Management
We protect your organisation against cyber threats.
Cybersecurity is the combination of the people, policies, processes and technologies employed by an enterprise to protect its IT assets. It is the practice of protecting systems, networks, and programs from digital attacks. These cyberattacks are usually aimed at accessing, changing, or destroying sensitive information - such as extorting money from users, or interrupting normal business processes. Our cybersecurity approach has multiple layers of protection spread across your computers, networks, programs, and data that is essential to keep safe.
In a global context, in 2016, Cybersecurity Ventures predicted that by 2021 cybercrime will cost $6 trillion annually, up by $3 trillion from 2015.
Users must understand and comply with basic data security principles such as choosing strong passwords, being wary of attachments in email, and backing up data.
Organisations must have a framework for how they deal with both attempted and successful cyberattacks. Our framework explains how you can identify attacks, protect systems, detect and respond to threats, and recover from successful attacks.
Technology is essential in giving organisations and individuals the computer security tools needed to protect themselves from cyberattacks. Three main entities must be protected: endpoint devices like computers, smart devices, and routers; networks; and the cloud. Common technology used to protect these entities include next-generation firewalls, DNS filtering, malware protection, antivirus software, and email security solutions.
Denial-of-service (DoS) Attacks.
Hackers flood a network with requests to exhaust bandwidth. In many cases, DoS attacks are meant to be more of a nuisance than anything else.
Man-in-the-middle attack (MitM).
This attack happens when hackers insert themselves into a two-party communication. Once they are in, they can steal data.
Phishing uses fake emails and text messages to get people to provide hackers access to private information. It is one of the most regular attacks, especially against the general public.
This attack method is broken down into spyware, ransomware, worms, and viruses. Emails or downloads usually deliver these attacks from suspicious sites.
SQL injection attack
Hackers insert malicious code onto an SQL-using server, usually via a vulnerable website search box. Once carried out successfully, the attack lets the hacker see information otherwise kept off-limits.
Hackers try to crack a password, usually a poorly chosen one and gain network entry.
Both senior management and IT are responsible for the organisation’s cyber security strategy.
Why Cyber Security Management?
A cybersecurity attack can result in everything from identity theft and extortion attempts, to the loss of important data. All enterprises rely on critical cyber-infrastructure – and securing these is crucial in keeping our society functioning. In today’s connected world, everyone benefits from advanced cyber-defense programs.
The Value Propositions
It can protect your business.
The greatest advantage is that the best in IT security cyber security solutions can provide comprehensive digital protection to your business. This will allow your employees to utilise the internet as and when they need, ensuring that they are not at risk from potential threats.
Protects personal info.
One of the most valuable commodities in the digital age is personal information. If a virus can obtain personal-detail information of your employees or customers, they are quite capable of selling that information on, or even using it to attack these people with cyber-crime.
Allows employees to work safely.
Without the best cyber security solutions for your business, you and your employees are constantly at risk from a potential cyber-attack. If your system, or even individual computers, become infected then the outcome can really hamper their productivity and even force you to replace computers.
Viruses can slow down personal computers to a crawl and make working on them practically impossible. This can cause countless wasted hours of your employees and can often bring your entire business to a standstill.
Why Is Cyber Security Important?
There are different types of cyber attacks.
No one is safe from the threat of cyberattacks. These attacks include malware, phishing, man-in-the-middle, and drive-by attacks. If they can get into your computers, then they could easily steal your data. You need cyber security if you want to stand a chance against these threats.
Increase in cybercrimes.
The fast development of technology, such as fast broadband, better gadgets, and cloud computing, has led to an increase in the number of connected devices. According to some surveys, there will be about 21.1 billion networked devices in the world in 2021. This, with the development of the dark web, has created a fertile ground for cybercrime activities. Cyber security can, nonetheless, minimise your exposure.
Tech users are vulnerable.
The fact that almost everyone on this planet is now more reliant on information and communication technology means, for cybercriminals, that there is a booming illegal opportunity. Factors like the enhancement of cloud storage and social media growth have left many exposed to cyberattacks. This makes cyber security more important than ever.
Cloud storage needs protection.
Sensitive information, like banking details and passwords, can now be stored in the cloud, increasing their risk of theft. Also, the growth of social media has led to an increase in identity fraud. The truth is that whether you are an individual, a small business, a large organisation, or even a government, you are at risk of being targeted by cybercrime.
Viruses can harm you and your business.
Computer viruses can spread like wildfire. If not controlled, these will cause severe problems for you and your business. Computer viruses can corrupt your files and systems. It is essential, therefore, to take cyber security seriously as it will protect your computer systems from viruses.
The dark web.
The growth and development of technology have not left the dark web behind. The dark web is a secret collaboration of Internet sites, which is only accessible through specialised web browsers. It is mainly used for hiding Internet activities and keeping users anonymous and private. As technology has developed, so has the dark web strengthened its sophistication. It has provided a haven for cybercriminals and resulted in an increased threat on surface Internet use. These vulnerabilities have heightened the significance of cyber security.
The world has gone fully mobile.
This is the era of smart devices and smartphones are one of those devices that have taken the entire world. Keeping the technologies safe from online hackers is not the only way to get protected from cybercrimes. Thousands of smartphones go missing each year and hacking those missing mobiles and their valuable information is now much easier. It is important to secure smartphones with strong passwords. They also should have full backups made regularly. Smartphones also have data-wiping capabilities, which help to protect the data from compromise after a loss of the device.
The internet of things.
The internet of things (IoT) is the trendiest technology these days. The smart devices are synced to the internet. The connected devices then interact with each other online. The IoT is making the devices more vulnerable to cybercrime. For cybersecurity, it is vital to have a strong password for the Wi-Fi, where unauthorised devices cannot easily connect. Larger business needs a robust cybersecurity plan and a team who implement the security plans to keep the data secure.
Spyware is a form of cyber infection which is designed to spy on your computer actions, and relay that information back to the cyber-criminal. A cyber security solution can prevent this spyware from taking effect and ensure that your employees’ actions within your workplace remain private and confidential.
Support your IT expert.
It might be unpleasant to hear, but most cyber-criminals will have much more experience than your average employee when it comes to digital crime. The best IT security systems can provide your team with the features and support that they need to effectively fight against even the most determined criminal.
Both senior management and IT are responsible for the organisation’s cyber security strategy.
