Cyber Security Consulting
For businesses and organizations that just need occasional or project-specific information security and compliance help, partnering with a third-party cybersecurity firm like Weborion is the most cost-effective option.
Why Use An Outside Security Firm?
A question we’re often asked is why would a business bring in an outside Cyber Security firm for help? Why not just hire security staff?
The three most common reasons are:
An Unbiased Perspective
Our security engineers have no political gain to achieve within a client’s business. Accordingly, there are no conflicts of interest to be wary of when it comes to providing recommendations and solutions. We are completely technology and process agnostic.
Skills And Experience
If the skill level and experience simply do not exist within the client’s business environment, it’s much more cost effective for them to bring us in on an ‘as needed’ basis. Our security engineers have complete and immediate reach-back to all of Weborion. This provides multiple technical capabilities, certifications, and experiences to bear for single engagements.
Full-Time Resources Can Be Hard To Find
It has become more difficult than ever to find security professionals with the experience and education needed to combat today’s cyber threats. It’s even harder to find security professionals that are up to date and knowledgeable on specific compliance frameworks such as PCI, NIST, FISMA, HIPAA, and others. Weborion is able to address these issues immediately.
Organisations that collect, process, analyze or share personal data certainly face significant data privacy challenges. If not dealt with correctly, it places the firm and the data at risk.
Personal data collection and use, with increased regulation and new security threats, created a unique challenge for any organization. If they don’t have a plan to deal with the significant global data privacy laws and regulations such as GDPR, they could be exposing themselves to significant business risk.
The right approach to information security is critical to achieving GDPR compliance. For many organizations, this requires a major revision of their security strategy and tactics. With compliance mandatory by May 2018, there are only months left to deal with this the significant task of GDPR compliance.
What makes GDPR unique and a challenge is that it requires firms to implement it via a risk-based framework. Since it covers personal data, GDPR focuses on ensuring the correct governance structure, policies and operational practices in place. In addition to monitoring, detection and incident response.
Weborion helps firms with the information security measures necessary for GDPR compliance via:
• Gap assessment against the GDPR standards for information security and incident response practices, to produce a roadmap to compliance
• Monitoring services to support the information security and incident response aspects of GDPR
Security Policies & Procedures
A firm’s information security policies and procedures create the roadmap for implementing security measures to protect its data assets. Every firm needs to be aware of the sensitivity of its data and their responsibilities for protecting it. Effective information security policies and procedures set the security tone for the entire organization and make personnel aware of what is expected of them.
Weborion consultants develop information security policies and procedures ISO 27001, an internationally accepted standard. Policies developed in such a manner support the frameworks required for all information security purposes.
