How To Stay Ahead With Your Organisation’s Cyber Security

by msecadm4921

Cyber security is an ever-evolving space, with attacks on your company’s online security impacting much more than your bottom line.

With cybercrime continuing to grow and evolve, there are steps you can take to protect your organisation from attacks and keep your customer’s data safe.

How Data Breaches Impact Enterprises

Breaches in your data security can not only impact your company financially; they can also result in a loss of customer trust. With consumers becoming more aware of their data security and privacy online, it’s more important than ever that organisations take their own data security seriously or risk losing customer confidence.

The Evolving Cyber Security Landscape

Over the last few years, organisations have been through a critical evolution in how they work — with a large percentage implementing more SaaS applications. While this makes working from home easier for your workforce, it presents new challenges regarding data security.

Organisations trust these third-party  SaaS vendors to protect their data — but data security is only as strong as your weakest link. The more cloud and hybrid-cloud environments you introduce into your organisation, the higher your risk of a data breach.

How To Protect Your Organisation’s Online Security

As technology evolves, so does the need for online security measures that can keep up with the growth rate that the sector is seeing. Attacks on your organisation can happen anytime, so 24/7 monitoring is vital — but doing this manually is unrealistic.

Organisations should look into SOC-as-a-service software that can proactively detect and automatically respond to online threats and data security vulnerabilities. Implementing this technology adds an extra layer of security to your IT team and covers the blind spots in your organisation’s cyber security.

Building Customer Trust In Your Data Security

When your customers’ confidence, and therefore your revenue, is on the line, your organisation must be able to communicate the steps you’re taking to keep their data safe as part of your overall online security strategy.

Communicating how you store and use your customer’s data clearly is critical; beyond that, offering opt-in or double opt-in options for customer communications helps your customers feel in control of how their data is used, helping to build their trust in you.

In a world where cyber attacks are a matter of ‘when’, not ‘if’, it’s never been more important for organisations to prioritise their online security to protect their data and preserve customer trust. You can read more on cyber security here.
