Cyber Security Solution
Helping your business with Cyber Security
The threat of cyber attack is a constant and no modern business can afford to overlook it. But awareness alone is not enough. Many business owners know that cyber security is something they should be focusing on, particularly in the light of the introduction of GDPR in May 2018, but aren’t sure how to go about it, and need answers to key questions, such as:
- How do I safeguard my business against attack?
- How can I minimise the risk of business data breaches?
- How can I optimise my IT network for GDPR?
- How do I demonstrate to my customers that we take IT security seriously?
The new laws make it your responsibility to inform your local data protection authority of any data breach that risks people’s rights and freedoms within 72 hours of your organisation realising the breach has occurred.
Even before you call the data protection authority, you should tell the people whose data has been compromised by the data breach what has happened.
Those who don’t meet the deadlines could face a penalty of up to 2% of their annual worldwide revenue, or €10 million, whichever is higher.
It is clear then the effect of a data breach is not only a loss of trust from existing customers, and disastrous PR, but also potentially heavy fines that you will want to avoid.
Our Cyber Security Process
Prompt can also use our expertise to provide you with a cyber security review. We can perform checks on IT infrastructure including servers, PCs and networks alongside penetration testing and the set-up of multi authentication techniques to ensure passwords are secure.
Our approach to reducing cyber security risks includes:
Are you computers and laptops encrypted to keep data secure? Laptops have an extra level of risk when it comes to keeping data safe because they are portable and often taken out of the office.
If a company laptop is lost or stolen, ensuring the hard drive is encrypted at least keeps the data secure and minimises the risk of a data leak and accompanying fines. We will help guide you through the process to making your laptops safer by using encryption.
AntiVirus and Malware
Viruses and malware are common tools used by cyber criminals to breach your computer systems and gain access to data. Virus and malware threats are ever-present and constantly changing.
We can help you ensure your systems are secure with regular updates, the automatic deployment of patches and by putting the best antivirus and malware prevention and detection processes in place.
Cloud Systems Security Check
Another often overlooked aspect of cyber security is cloud based systems. People assume that the cloud is safe and the responsibility of the cloud service provider, but that is not the case.
Individual companies have responsibility to ensure the systems they are using are secure. Prompt can help you achieve that aim, as our team of engineers are educated on the constantly evolving risk presented by cyber criminals in the cloud.
Through our cyber security checks we will make your network and systems inherently more secure against the vulnerabilities of cyber crime.
