Cyber Security and Risk
what you need to know
LSA Systems are Cyber Essentials certified and we have gained the Gold Certificate from government-appointed accreditation body IASME to ensure we are fully qualified to help you build an effective IT security strategy and to achieve your desired level of accreditation. It is no surprise that Cyber Security is high on the agenda for all types of organisations and they must have adequate controls in place to protect against a range of risks and threats from ransomware and industrial espionage to fraud and intellectual-property theft.
68% of medium-sized businesses have suffered a cyber breach or attack in the past 12 months
Cyber-crime is one of the fastest-growing and most pressing security issues facing organisations in the 21st century. The speed and anonymity offered by the internet means that hackers, fraudsters and other types of cybercriminal can breach unprotected systems with relative ease – leaving companies’ data open to theft and corruption. If these companies were to incur a cyber breach and their customers’ information was stolen, they could experience a significant loss of revenue and reputation.
how we approach
It is more important than ever before for businesses to gain accreditation and know that their IT systems are as impenetrable as they can be. A key part of our Cyber Security consultancy services is to provide a Baseline Audit which is designed to give you the insights you need to complete your self-assessment and gain accreditation.
The goal of the scheme is to improve cybersecurity practice by implementing five key technical security controls that address up to 80% of common cybersecurity threats including fraud, industrial espionage, and theft of intellectual property.
To help ensure your IT systems are as secure as possible, we’ve gone beyond the basic Cyber Essentials certification to earn the Gold Certificate from the IASME Consortium – the Information Assurance for Small and Medium Enterprises.
IASME offers a certification route to demonstrate that you have taken into account the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This certification is available as a verified self-assessment or as an on-site audit.
If your organisation fails to comply with PCI DSS requirements, you could run the risk of a costly fine. As such, you need to ensure compliance with the latest standards.
With a Mimecast anti-spam system in place, you don’t need to worry about phishing attacks, as the system knows which emails are safe and which aren’t and removes the offending email before it reaches your staff.
