Information security and cyber security

Crucial parts of your business that you should be proactively addressing

Information security (InfoSec for short) and cybersecurity are not synonymous. Information security is a broader area concerned with the protection of information in all formats. Cybersecurity is the protection of cyberspace against any sort of nefarious intent.

There is obviously a large amount of overlap between the field of cybersecurity and information security today because most of our information is collected, stored and transmitted digitally. That’s why you not only need comprehensive information security policies but an effective cybersecurity setup. In fact, to successfully implement an effective infosec policy, you practically can’t do without cybersecurity.

Why Information security is important for your business

What aspects of Information security you should be addressing

Maintain regulatory compliance

You are required by law to protect the data you hold – especially that relating to people.

Data breaches
cost money

Not only are data and security breaches unbudgeted expenses, but you can also be fined large amounts in relation to GDPR.

Your data is valuable to criminals

Cybercriminals are after your data – email addresses and similar information. It fetches a fair price on the dark web’s black markets.

Can’t see it, can’t manage it

You need effective solutions combined with managed security services to visualise and effectively protect your data.

User error

Users within your business systems should have sufficient cyber security training in order for your business to remain cyber resilient – otherwise, your end users can put your business at risk.

The gatekeeper

Your network is the gateway to all of your business data, this, as a bare minimum, needs to be protected.

Understanding Information Security

Neglecting your cyber security is a dangerous gamble

Policy Protection

If you store client information on computers or send it via emails, for example, you’re going to be in need of a cyber component to your infosec policy.
2

Your Network Is Your Front Door

Your corporate network is a gateway to the information you hold on your customers and suppliers. It needs protecting from cybercriminals.
3

Your Backups' Backup

If you take backups of your data, you need to ensure they’re encrypted and safe from hackers.
4

BYOD, Or Bring Your Own Device

Employees using their own devices for accessing your corporate network need to be regulated by a comprehensive Bring Your Own Device policy.
