It is important that businesses recognize the true scale of their data asset. Today, it is one of the most valuable parts of a business and is equally one of the most vulnerable.
Companies of all sizes are using new technologies such as cloud computing, but just as these help improve your productivity, so they increase the risk to your data. If something goes wrong, it affects your whole business.
Stuff happens. Let’s deal with it
And it will go wrong. There is no point in pretending things won’t. We see data and security breaches every day in the news, and even large organizations are poorly prepared for the reality of such a situation. The threats perpetually change and the playing field shifts daily.
Conventional security models alone are not working. Businesses are still operating on the assumption that everything inside their perimeter can be trusted. This is not the case. Your perimeters need enforcement or you leave yourself open.
We believe in changing the business mindset. Instead of hoping a problem won’t happen, we accept that it will. And we work on preparing for it, instead of fighting a losing battle.
Our plans are for life, not for filing
We can help you ensure continuity and reduce the commercial impact of a breach by planning for the worst case scenario. But not just an unrealistic plan to put away in the filing cupboard! We help you with practical plans that will actually work when something does go wrong.
Our practicality gives your business bounce
We can build resilience in your business. We will help your business to bend rather than to break when there is a breach and invest wisely so that your company can bounce back. We ask the practical, down to earth questions:
- How good is your existing data security and data hygiene?
- What are you using the data for?
- How can you protect it?
- Do you know everyone you are working with and who may hold your data?
- Where is your data perimeter?
- What are the risks to your organization?
- Where are the confidentiality risks?
- Where is your critical information? Is it truly safe?
- What happens if this data is corrupted?
- Would you be able to carry on doing business if you had a data or security breach?
We work with you on these questions and develop a practical action plan to protect you and your business.
