Data protection in your company
Personal data is processed every second – at work, in cooperation with public authorities, in the field of healthcare, when making purchases, traveling or just surfing the Internet. We know that our personal data must be protected, we do not disclose our personal code unnecessarily, we look at unknown online stores with suspicion, we are especially suspicious when we receive a call from an unknown company and we are adresed by our name.
Are we just as attentive in the business environment?
In the business environment, a much larger amount of data is processed, and for more convenient use this data is almost always arranged in structured databases. Data, including trade secrets, restricted financial figures and other information about both the company and its customers is a very coveted one for those who want to handle this information dishonestly.
Every company, regardless of size, is a potential target for a cyber attack. For rogue criminals, hackers, your business data is money (income). For example, by obtaining data, it can be sold, the data obtained can be blackmailed for ransom, access to internal resources can be used to decrypt all company data, or otherwise paralyze the company’s operations.
The main thing to keep in mind is that cyber security threats do not always come from anonymous hackers or foreign criminal groups. Threats can also arise in your company, possibly even unknowingly.
Anyone who has physical or remote access to your organization’s work platforms poses a potential risk of a cyber attack. For instance:
- A trusted employee accidentally makes mistake and shares confidential information;
- Employees do not follow the company’s policies and procedures due to ignorance or obscurity.
- Disgruntled employees or former employees who intend to crack down on or take revenge on your company.
- the others.
In order to prevent a situation where data security in a company has to be considered only after a serious incident, BM Certification calls for a timely evaluation of the implementation of the ISO 27001 Information Security Management System.
ISO 27001: 2013 is an international standard, the implementation of which will provide a sound framework for information security management, identifying measures to protect the security of existing information and the necessary impact to prevent and mitigate it in the future.
BM Certification provides both certification in accordance with the requirements of the ISO 27001: 2013 standard and training of employees on the information security management system.
