Cyber Security and General Data Protection Regulation

Cyber security is one of the biggest threats to individuals and businesses these days across the world. Cyber criminals are on the rise and they are becoming more sophisticated with their tactics and intelligence to cause damage. Not only are they a nuisance when they file out spam emails on your behalf and cause frustration amongst your clients, they can ultimately compromise your business too.

Cyber protection knowledge is key to ensure that your business and your employees have all the necessary safeguards in place. This too is true of personal accounts to make sure that you’re not caught out.

 

When looking at cyber security there are five key aspects that provide an extra level of cover.

  • Firewalls and Gateways
  • Patch Management
  • Malware Protection
  • Secure Configuration
  • User Access Control

Our highly experienced team can confidentially assist in each of these areas to provide the best level of service and security for your IT systems. 

However, as the cyber-criminal world is becoming more sophisticated, there are times when some traditional antivirus software and single solutions may not detect an attack. They of course still act as a strong first line of defence against threats, but it is wise to invest in further steps to ensure that your organisation or personal accounts are properly protected. Anti-malware products are also a strong system to product against ransomware, browser explorations and malicious traffic.

General Data Protection Regulation

There are occasions when either you or a client associated with your business is bidding for an external Government contract. You need to have the right accreditations and certificates in place to present that your IT systems go above and beyond standard specifications due to the sensitive nature of the business.

Speaking of information, General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a vital legislation that all companies, regardless of size, must adhere to. This is an updated and more thorough version of the existing Data Protection Act that gives back control to how your personal data is processed. It protects items of personal identification data such as name, date of birth, home address, email address, etc. If you fail to adequately protect this information or impose any data breaches, then large fines can be administered.
