Five-Step Cyber Security Strategy

Last week I wrote a blog post explaining the need to maintain the confidentiality, integrity and availability of sensitive information and how the protection of information assets (information security) is a key element in the long-term competitiveness and survival of all organisations. If you missed the blog you can read it again here.

Download our free White Paper Cyber Security: a Critical Business Risk, which sets out a Five-Step Cyber Security Strategy that every organisation should adopt.

The document proposes a Five-Step Cyber Security Strategy that every organisation should adopt and can be summarised as follows:

  • Secure the cyber perimeter with regular penetration testing
  • Secure mobile devices (laptops, PDA, smart phones) beyond the perimeter
  • Secure the internal network controlling unauthorised wireless and mobile storage devices
  • Train staff to recognise and respond appropriately to social engineering attacks
  • Adopt the ISO27001 & BS25999 standards to develop a cyber security and resilience system

 

ISO27001 – the Cybersecurity Standard

Accredited Certification to ISO27001 gives an organisation internationally recognised and accepted proof that its system for managing information security – its ISMS or cyber security readiness – is of an acceptable, independently audited and verified standard.
