CYBER SECURITY

The nature of risks associated with cyber security are constantly evolving.  While most organisations have some risk management processes in place, many lack visibility of their cyber risks specifically.

We break cyber security into 3 distinct phases.

We take Cyber Security very seriously, which is why we are an Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) partner.  Based within the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) and the Australian Department of Defence, the ACSC leads the Australian Government’s efforts on national cyber security. The ACSC partner program brings together the business, academic, NFP and government cyber community in a trusted and collaborative environment, to improve Australia’s cyber resilience and help make Australia the safest place to connect online.  

Minimising Cyber Security Incidents

“The proactive application of tools and processes that protect an organisation’s IT systems from breaches and loss of data.”

Mitigation involved a range of approaches, including:

We use powerful, unified threat platforms to deliver a number of layers of protection to keep data safe. This includes the provisions of firewalls and other tools used to increase security awareness, reducing the risk of exposure form cybercrime, malicious software and insider threats. We help create a seamless security surface while minimising gaps.

Every day, hundreds of thousands of businesses and individuals are attacked by both automated and manual systems looking to exploit vulnerabilities in their security systems.

On average it takes over 200 days for organisations to realise that they have suffered a breach and had data stolen.

The sheer volume of attacks coupled with ever-changing methods, new vulnerabilities, and the pervasive will of cyber criminals’ intent on breaching your organisation, is enough to give cause for concern.

This service includes:

  • Identify potential risks by determining vulnerabilities
  • Create a base line model of your cyber security posture
  • Define cost effective ways to identify weaknesses
  • Provide valuable insights and a fresh perspective

Which means that:

  • We can help reduce the cost of cyber security insurance
  • Reduce the likelihood of reputational damage
  • Secure your sensitive information and intellectual property
Are your people up to speed on security standards and compliance with regulatory requirements? Do they understand how to behave in an online always connected world? Are they prepared to respond to a crisis situation involving cyber security? How would they handle a major breach? If you ever find yourself in the spotlight following a breach, will you have made all of the right moves that you could be reasonably be expected to make? Your staff’s proper handling of incidents will be vital to your organisation’s future. Your best resource in today’s world is your staff. They are also unfortunately, one of your largest potential liabilities unless they are trained in the proper ways to meet security compliance laws, regulations and incidents. How your staff operate as agents of your organisation is vital. We put together a training program to ensure your staff is fully versed and up to speed in protecting your data.

Recovery

Whether due to employee misconduct, sabotage, intrusions, breaches by cyber criminals or ransomware, we can intervene and manage the situation to minimise potential damage and loss.

We offer you a program whereby we build a plan and the physical infrastructure to effectively respond to threats such as natural disasters, fire, emergency relocation, critical data breaches, and any number of other threats. Our business continuity management program includes crisis, incident and emergency management, contingency planning and disaster recovery. While there is no guarantee you will ever need to use this program, if you ever do, we will help you get back to running your organisation as usual while minimising the impact.

Not having a plan is not a plan. When there is a crisis and your business is disrupted, you will be fine. You were smart to build a professional contingency plan with us. All that is left now, is to take out the plan and follow it!

Compliance

If your business has an annual turnover of $3million, laws such as the ‘Australian Privacy Principles amendments to the Privacy Act 1988’ are applicable and must be met.

Ultimately the liability for compliance in relation to data protection, security and privacy sits with company directors and increasingly they are being held accountable.

We can help achieve compliance by conducting comprehensive reviews of your cyber security, advising directors and board members about potential liabilities and weaknesses in current systems.

We also assist with any staff training and education that may be required.
