Cybersecurity

Strengthen the walls of your Castle. Don't let the enemy cause a hassle.

If you spend more on coffee than on IT security, you will be hacked. What's more, you deserve to be hacked” ― Richard A. Clarke

Fact: So far all our ongoing customers delayed in a Cybersecurity Review and were hacked. We had to take immediate action to secure them and there was possible data loss. We encourage all our future and current customers to not put it off and get us to do the review.

Defense 5: 

Hardening

We harden devices, applications and operating systems by turning on or off settings or uninstalling apps that can leave a door in for hackers or viral outbreaks. This includes network devices. 

We can deny all unauthorised apps and allow specific apps (whitelist) to use the internet and function on devices, especially desktops and laptops. 

Here is specific ways we harden settings: 

  • Adjust Device, Operating System and Apps settings to remove any security issues

  • Harden firewalls on all devices including network devices. 

  • Only Allow specific apps to access the internet on devices

  • Enforce increased scurity settings on operating systems through Device Governance (Management & Compliance)

  • Refer to manufacturer or developers improved instructions to strengethen the settintgs of your applications across the business. 

 

Our Cybersecurity Awareness Training sessions will help you and staff to know how to prevent and deal with such things as spam emails, viral websites and suspicious files. Knowing what to do is as important as having the protections. It will also test their knowledge in the wild. 

 

We can assist Document everything Cybersecurity related including preparation and update of disaster recovery plan, backup plan, user and internal cybersecurity documentation.
