What is Secure Workplace
Our proactive Enhanced Support Services (ESS) assists our partner’s clients in resolving and preventing incidents before any impact can reach the business. Our 24×7 team is made up of top-level engineers, each with the knowledge to address your issue directly – not just gatekeepers who pass ticket items on to technical staff. Tapping into our deep level of expertise allows your team to concentrate on your business, with minimised downtime and IT related disruptions.
Before you can begin to secure the workplace, the people who interact with it must be considered, understood, measured, and secured. The starting point for any individual is their identity, followed naturally by the locations they use to interact with the workplace, and how they manage their critical credentials like passwords and or tokens etc. and access to business information, applications, and collaboration platforms.
During and after implementation of a security strategy or solution, it is important to take the learnings and invest the time to educate individuals and groups within the business to drive security, governance, and risk awareness.
Next, we ensure the relevant level of security controls exist for each persona, or group within your organisation on their assigned devices. At the base level, ensuring devices are secured against next-generation malware and advanced threats is critical, so each endpoint should leverage Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) capabilities allowing automatic investigation of alerts and remediate options for complex threats in minutes with industry best practices and intelligent decision-making algorithms to determine whether a threat is active and more importantly, what action to take.
It is crucial to understand any areas outside of the workplace which present a potential risk. Discover how data is being created within the organisation and shared externally, understand which SaaS platforms are in use and extend information protection into the cloud. Remove risks associated with data leaving the organisation and ensure data classification or policy is adhered to, eliminating Shadow IT.
Once you understand how information is moving outside of the organisation, new behaviours are learnt (good or bad), from which the learnings can be applied to the underlying policies behind each persona, or group.
Discover and manage sensitive, classified, or compliance specific information, understand risks within and external to the business through discovery, design, implementation, and documentation of an information protection platform. Discover who has access to what and more importantly why. Gain control over unlimited sharing and access to your client’s information estate.
Achieving effective information protection policy goes a long way to meeting compliance standards and with people, devices, cloud data, and information secured, it is often assumed all bases are covered. However, not quite, to retain compliance, you must pass through an Audit, which could be planned or random. To satisfy an auditor, the key is to exhibit the ability to quickly show who has access to certain information, and the reason “why” they have access. To successfully pass an Audit, information governance needs to be delivered in a manner where the “reason” and “duration” for access is captured at the time the information is shared.
