Data Security for Business

Businesses handle and store intellectual property and personal information. Often there are multiple entry and exit points where this data can be accessed by unscrupulous people. And with more costly data laws being introduced by governments, securing data has become an absolute requirement for a company's longevity.

Industrial Control Systems Security

Equipment used in manufacturing processes have special controls and system requirements. Physical danger to employees and even surrounding areas are possible if access to these Industrial Control Systems (ICS) are breached. Because of unique requirements, ICS is segregated from a company's IT network and systems. Adherence to these controls will reduce the risk of exposure to criminal elements.

Cyber Security Training

Employees and contractors are an asset to maintaining security around your systems. But they can also be a huge liability if uneducated on cyber security. A cyber security training program ensures everyone in your business stays current and aware of the cyber pitfalls.

IOT Device Usage Controls

Internet of Things (IoT) devices are found in nearly every aspect of business and life. Historically security on IoT devices have been lacking, either through design or lack of security updates. Cyber criminals are increasing their attacks against such vulnerabilities. IoT usage controls can greatly shrink the security gaps.

IOT Device Development Controls

Internet of Things (IoT) devices can be physically or virtually connected to computers or other systems. And when a device contains sensitive customer or business information, it becomes a big target for the criminal element. Proper IoT development controls will reduce the security risk to customers using your devices.

BYOD Controls

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is prevalent in the workplace, especially when using contractors and freelancers. When you allow employees to use their personal devices, such as laptops, smartphones, and tablets, to access your system or data, whatever is on that device can infect your system. Managing BYOD reduces the cyber security risk.

Data Security Policies and Procedures

Data security policies are a starting point for identifying the security issues most important to a business, in addition to providing employees and contractors a guide for how to properly act while on your systems or using the information. Key vulnerabilities include internet usage on a company network, password requirements, email usage, social media postings, and USB usage.

P2P File Sharing Controls

Employees, contractors, vendors, partners, or anyone else sharing and transmitting your valuable data is a potential point for data corruption or loss. Peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing is a method to easily swap data between different parties. P2P controls reduce the risk of systems being infected at critical interfaces in the process.
