To ensure that businesses protect their information, have consistent cohesion departmentally, and follow all governmental regulations, governance, risk, and compliance, (GRC) program is important.
The GDPR has transformed how personal data is collected, shared, and used globally. To ensure GDPR compliance, organizations will need to make changes to policies, processes, and contracts, as well as in technical and organizational measures. In some instances, those changes could be complex and significant.
ISO 27001 Audit
ISO 27001 (ISO/IEC 27001:2013) is the international standard that provides the specification for an information security management system (ISMS).
The Standard is designed to help organisations manage their information security processes in line with international best practice while optimising costs. It is technology and vendor neutral and is applicable to all organisations – irrespective of their size, type or nature.
ISO 27001 emphasises the importance of risk management, which forms the cornerstone of an ISMS.
All ISO 27001 projects evolve around an information security risk assessment – a formal, top management-driven process which provides the basis for a set of controls that help to manage information security risks.
By implementing an ISO 27001-compliant ISMS, organisations will be able to secure information in all its forms, increase their resilience to cyber-attacks, adapt to evolving security threats and reduce the costs associated with information security.
Data Leakage Prevention
Data Loss Prevention (DLP) is the practice of detecting and preventing data breaches, exfiltration, or unwanted destruction of sensitive data. Organizations use DLP to protect and secure their data and comply with regulations.
The DLP term refers to defending organizations against both data loss and data leakage prevention. Data loss refers to an event in which important data is lost to the enterprise, such as in a ransomware attack. Data loss prevention focuses on preventing illicit transfer of data outside organizational boundaries.
Organizations typically use DLP to:
Protect Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and comply with relevant regulations
Protect Intellectual Property critical for the organization
Achieve data visibility in large organizations
Secure mobile workforce and enforce security in Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) environments
Secure data on remote cloud systems
