Way of working and culture
Security and compliance aren’t one-off procedures, but continuous processes. Just as your home needs to be locked again each time you go out, your ICT systems need constant attention to remain secure. However, as well as technical controls that act like your door lock, your digital security depends on your culture and way of working.
Securing anything depends on knowing that it needs securing. We therefore operate and continually refine a vulnerability management process to detect, analyse and proactively mitigate vulnerabilities in applications and systems on our networks.
Solid foundation and best practices
Security depends on a strong foundation plus adherence to standards and best practices. We use next-generation firewalls and anti-virus protection to negate common threats. Our firewalls protect your servers against suspicious connection attempts, while our anti-virus software blocks ransomware and other malware to prevent backdoor access.
Abnormalities and detection
Prevention is always better than cure, but it’s impossible to prevent all cyber-hazards with total certainty. Keeping attackers at bay is always a game of cat and mouse. So, as well as good preventive security, it’s important to have effective incident detection capability We continuously monitor and analyse activity on your servers to pick up any abnormalities. If, for example, a new administrator account is created, the alarm is sounded. Of course, the activity may be entirely legitimate, but we’d rather make sure than simply assume that all is well.
Collaboration is the key
Along with tooling, culture and best practices, collaboration and knowledge-sharing are vital contributors to security. Everyone, regardless of their role, responsibilities and experience, should feel able to highlight risks and urge colleagues to address them, so that quality standards are constantly raised. We’ll work with you as a virtual team to minimise risks and achieve the highest possible levels of security together.
