CYBER SECURITY ASSESSMENT

A cyber security assessment plays a crucial role in helping organisations understand and mitigate the risks associated with cyber threats. Here’s how the process works and its significance:

  • Understanding Cyber Risks: An assessment allows you to gain a comprehensive understanding of the risks that could potentially impact your core business operations. It helps identify vulnerabilities, weaknesses, and potential threats. Once identified, risks can be prioritized, depending on their potential impact and likelihood of occurrence. Prioritisation helps us to address the most critical risks first.
  • Proactive Defence: Through proactively identifying, assessing and prioritising risks, you can implement proactive defences and take steps to mitigate risk to reduce potential cyber incidents or minimize their impact.
  • Assessing Data and Information Systems: The assessment evaluates the risk to both data and information systems. It considers various types of data, including financial data, customer data, and operational data, recognising the significance and the need for robust, sophisticated protection to safeguard critical assets from unauthorised access, data breaches, and other cyber threats.
  • Risk Mitigation: Following the assessment, Du Pont will work with you to determine relevant, tailored risk mitigation strategies. This may involve implementing technical controls, enhancing security policies and procedures, conducting employee training and awareness programs, and adopting industry best practices.

MANAGED SECURITY SERVICES

A managed security service provides outsourced, proactive monitoring, and management of your organisation’s security devices and systems. Here are key points to understand:

  • Proactive Monitoring and Management: Managed security services involve continuous monitoring of your environment to detect and respond to potential threats in real-time. This proactive approach helps identify and mitigate security incidents before they escalate.
  • Resource Optimisation: By outsourcing the monitoring and management of security devices and systems, you can free up your internal resources to focus on your core business activities. Managed security services allow you to leverage the expertise and resources of a dedicated team of security professionals.
  • Comprehensive Security Services: Du Pont’s service offers managed firewalls, intrusion detection systems, virtual private networks (VPNs), vulnerability scanning, and anti-virus services. These services cover threats to data confidentiality, data integrity, authentication, non-repudiation, and access control.
  • Network Security Monitoring: This involves the continuous analysis of network traffic, logs and events to identify suspicious activities or potential security breaches. This helps in early threat detection and prompt responses.
  • Threat Hunting and Detection: Modern managed security service providers employ advanced techniques such as threat hunting to proactively search for potential threats within the network environment. This proactive approach helps in identifying and neutralizing threats that may bypass traditional security measures.

When engaging with a managed security service provider, it is crucial to discuss specific details such as service-level agreements (SLAs), incident response times, reporting mechanisms, pricing models, and the level of customisation and integration with your existing security infrastructure. This will help ensure that the managed security service aligns with your organisation’s security requirements and provides the necessary protection against evolving cyber threats.

ANTI VIRUS. FIREWALLS. CONTENT FILTERING

Anti-virus, firewalls, content filtering, and penetration testing are important components of a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy. Here’s a brief explanation of each:

  • Anti-virus: Anti-virus software is designed to detect, prevent and remove malicious software from your computer systems. It looks for known patterns or behaviours associated with malware and takes appropriate actions to mitigate the threat.
  • Firewalls: Firewalls act as a barrier between your internal network and the external network (typically the internet). They monitor and control network traffic based on predetermined security rules to deter unauthorised access, malicious traffic, and network-based attacks.
  • Content Filtering: This allows you to control or restrict access to pre-defined types of web content. It helps prevent users from accessing inappropriate or potentially harmful websites, protecting you from malware, phishing attacks and other web-based threats.
  • Penetration Testing: This is also known as ethical hacking and it simulates real-world attacks to access your IT system, network or application. It aims to identify vulnerabilities that could be exploited by attackers, helping organisations understand their security posture to prioritise remediation efforts and strengthen their defences.

These components are typically part of a layered defence strategy, working together to provide multiple layers of protection against cyber threats. It is important to note that while these measures are effective, they should be supplemented with other security practices such as regular software updates, employee awareness training, strong authentication mechanisms, and data back-up strategies to create a robust security environment.

When implementing these measures, organisations can choose to manage them internally or engage with a managed security service provider such as Du Pont Solutions who specialises in these services. Working with experts can ensure that these components are properly configured, monitored, and updated to provide maximum security coverage for your applications, network and data.
