Organisations rely on utilising the internet to carry out their business operations. Using networks via the internet comes with its own merits as well as inherit threats. Due to this it is vital for organisations to understand what Cyber Security is and how it affects their people, processes and technology.
What is Cyber Security?
Cyber security is a term that over the past few years has become part of everyday language, but what does it mean? Cyber Security is defined as the protection of systems, networks and data from attack, damage or unauthorised access, from both internal and external network and internet threats such as computer-assisted fraud, sabotage, vandalism, etc. Although there is an increasing reliance on information within businesses, many information systems have not been designed to be secure.
ERS can provide Cyber Security Assessments on your organisation to evaluate the maturity of your cyber security stance and discover gaps that could pose a threat and identify opportunities for improvement that would strengthen your Cyber Security Posture. The aim of the Cyber Security Assessment is:
- Providing an understanding of cyber security maturity across relevant domains.
- Using our proven assessment methodology to provide evidence of non-conformities, gaps and observations
- Checking compliance against the HMG’s 10 Steps to Cyber Security.
