If you and your family relocated to a new home, and moved everything you own into it, from your valuable financial assets to things that have significant sentimental value, what steps would you take to secure your property from outside intruders, uninvited guests, and other potential risks? Firstly, you might recognise the need for the premises to be secured, which requires some sort of locking mechanism to protect the property from intruders. However, this raises the issue of what kind of lock is appropriate for upholding the security of your premises. A cheap plastic padlock might initially appear to protect your house from intruders, but if it would only take a perseverant trespasser a few moments to bypass it, then it is not an effective security system at all, leaving your property at risk. To adequately safeguard your premises from potential threats, you need a strong, resilient security system, with no obvious weak points that can be exploited.
An Information Security Management System (ISMS) sees your business Improving Safety Maintenance Strategies
The International Organization for Standardization’s ISO 27001 Information Security Standards provides business’ with an internationally certified set of business information security standards and solutions, which aim to help business’ maintain the three core tenets of strong information security: confidentiality, integrity, and reliability. This is achieved by helping business’ to conduct a gap analysis of their existing information security system, to work out what strategies are in place to maintain the information security of the organisation, which ones are working effectively, and which ones could be strengthened, amended, and streamlined to better preserve confidential business data, maintain the integrity of such data by keeping it safe from cyber and physical threats in the form of hackers, malware, email scams, unprotected Wi-Fi networks, and so on, and the ability of authorised users to freely access that data, while unauthorised users are prevented from doing so.
Free Webinar on the ins and outs of upholding business information security
Anitech realises that a lot of business’ may be anxious, or concerned, about maintaining the information security of their systems. After all, the business marketplace has undergone significant changes over the past year, which has resulted in many business’ being potentially exposed to a range of new information security risks, such as phishing scams, malware, hackers, as well as risks associated with their physical environment, including unauthorised users accessing work computers, important business information at risk of being exposed through insufficient password and lockout protection, and so on. Business’ are right to be concerned, because a single data breach could threaten the integrity of their whole operation, as well as its ability to function.

The future of your business could depend on it.
