IT Security

The security landscape is changing

Companies large and small face increasing pressure when it comes to security. This year, Australia’s Notifiable Data Breach and the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation come into play – with big fines if you don’t comply.

There’s growing complexity around how end users access corporate networks. And security attacks are becoming more sophisticated. Given all this, cyber and data security are more important than ever.

Faced with more attacks, business reputations are on the line. In this risk-laden environment, you need more rigorous prevention, detection and response mechanisms in place to protect your reputation and maintain business as usual operations.

 

A multi-layered approach to cybersecurity

Yet there’s no single solution. An attack can come from a wide range of sources, so individual security products and technologies must work together to form a cohesive security fabric that covers the complete ICT environment – from the network and endpoint to the cloud and beyond. This multi-layered approach is the only way to combat cyber-attacks and minimise the occurrence of a data breach.

Sounds complex. Yet if you follow the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) cybersecurity guidelines – the ‘Strategies to Mitigate Cyber Security Incidents’ – it doesn’t have to be. The ASD’s ‘Essential Eight’ strategies are the most fundamental things you should be doing to ensure good security habits are adopted across your organisation.

The good news? Insource IT has designed and built our security capability around the ‘Essential Eight’, giving you the confidence that your IT environment is secured to the right level.
