Information is the currency of your business – you must secure it – Neuways tell you how

Information is Key to Success

Information security (InfoSec for short) and cyber security are not the same thing.
Cyber security is the protection of information stored digitally. Information security, on the other hand, is the broader protection of information stored across all formats, both digital and physical.

Information is the lifeblood of your business, and the key factor that keeps your business running smoothly. It’s also highly sensitive, and with the introduction of GDPR, data breaches carry heavy penalties. Information security for your businesses is, therefore, paramount.

It’s because of this that we highly recommend implementing a comprehensive information security policy to accompany your cyber security solutions:

Data Breach Victims due to lack of Information Security

  • 28% of data breach victims are small businesses
  • £4,180 is the average annual cost of a data breach
  • 32% of businesses need new measures to prevent a data breach

Why information security is Essential

Maintain Regulatory Compliance

You are required by law to protect the data you hold (especially personal data). It’s in your interest to take information security seriously – fines from data non-compliance are damaging and expensive!

Secure your Network Perimeter

With remote working becoming more popular, businesses are allowing employees to use personal devices for work.

Your Data is Valuable to Criminals

Cyber criminals want your data because it is valuable to them – it has a monetary value. Email addresses and login credentials all fetch 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. Without the right InfoSec solutions and policies in place you will breach data laws.

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 and information. Putting the appropriate levels of security around your network must be a priority for your InfoSec policy and IT Strategy.

Why Neuways?

Having the best cyber security solutions in place is the first step towards securing your business. Businesses that take information security seriously entrust the ongoing management of their IT security to professionals, to combat the increasingly dangerous and prevalent world of cyber crime.

At Neuways, we offer managed support plans to maintain and monitor cyber security defenses, which help you in your goal of being compliant with the raft of legislation relating to information security today.

Our Consultants are experts in Information Security, which means that we can help you form your InfoSec policy.

What’s Involved in Information Security?

If you store or process customer information digitally, you must have a cyber component within your InfoSec policy. Should you suffer a cyber incident, what is your current plan? An InfoSec policy will outline how an incident is reported and steps taken to mitigate damage.

Managed IT Security Training

IT security training can provide your team with the basics they require to keep your business safe. Your policy might also include terms on acceptable use.
