When the COVID-19 pandemic hit us, work changed radically.
Companies had to make swift arrangements for employees to work at home or to furlough staff.
Nine months later, many of us are still working from home and don’t know when we’ll be back in our offices.
This can be a challenging situation when it comes to network and cyber security.
Is employee WiFi secure? Could connections to company networks be compromised? Are assets such as laptops kept in secure places?
What does the law say about information management?
Every business has a legal duty to keep personal data secure under the General Data Protection Regulation and Data Protection Act 2018.
Failure to do that can result in a breach, an investigation by the ICO, and a potential fine.
To help avoid cyber attacks and data breaches and to prove integrity to customers, many organisations choose to become certified to ISO 27001, the international standard for information security management.
What are the benefits of having ISO 27001?
Your organisation mitigates against threats which can often help your cyber insurance premium, you ensure your assets are protected as well as your data, you show how you meet your legal requirements, and it’s useful to point to it when tendering for new business.
