When it comes to security systems, your company needs to be rock solid. You want independent experts to examine your systems, look for weaknesses, and patch them.
This is even more important if you are involved in the government, the wider public sector, or part of Critical National Infrastructure. In these cases, a cyber security consultancy is absolutely critical. Lives could be at stake.
The last thing you want is a data breach. Letting private information get out to the general public can ruin your reputation as well as your bottom line. A cyber security consultancy makes these unfortunate events considerably less likely to happen.
Cyber security consultancy covers a wide range of data security, depending on the nature of your organization. There is a strong chance this will be required by government regulations should you collect, transmit, or handle data for the government and/or from the general public at large.
A cyber security consultant ensures that your company:
Is ISO 27001 compliant. This is the standard best practice for any company dealing with stored and/or transmitted data.
Monitors possible threats to your data security. You don’t know how at-risk your data is until a cyber security consultant has tested it.
Can connect to the cloud without risk of data breaches. This is very important if you are affiliated with the government and want to join the G-Cloud.
Goes through a high-level cyber review. If you choose this option, your cyber security consultant will recommend systemic changes to your organization to become more compliant with government regulations and maintain data standards.
Has a cyber incident response plan in place. No matter how vigilant you are, it’s always possible for someone to breach your security through malware or rogue employees. When this happens, your company should be able to respond at the earliest stage of the attack to minimize damage.
Cyber security consultancy is fairly simple. You hire one or more certified cyber security consultants to take a look at your systems and practices. Your cyber security consultants will explain the weaknesses of your systems, and offer recommendations for what you can do to fix any problems that may be discovered.
A cyber security consultant can either be used as a one-time option – or, more regularly, on an ongoing basis depending on the sensitivity of your data. Again, government-affiliated companies should have ongoing or at least routine reviews from a cyber security consultancy. In general, your company is mandated to incorporate the changes suggested if you wish to continue to work with high-level, privileged information.
If you work with public documents for the government or in related fields, you need to make sure your data is secure. It’s the law. And even if you don’t work with public documents, you still need to make sure that your company’s protections are deeply secure – because a breach can hurt your reputation, your clients and your bottom line.
