Compliant’s warning to businesses about the importance of online safety and security
Today, February 9th marks Safer Internet Day, a global awareness-raising campaign that started in Europe in 2004 and is now celebrated in more than 100 countries.
This year’s theme is ‘An internet we trust: exploring reliability in the online world’. The annual event encourages people to work together for a ‘better internet’ by focusing on online safety.
However, safety and security on networks and websites can sometimes be overlooked and can often result in costly fines and damaged reputations.
Safety online during the pandemic
As lockdown continues to disrupt business operations and with more and more people having to work from home, it is more important than ever that companies keep information safe and secure.
But how can you get started?
Allowing access to a company’s information systems from places and means of communication that it does not control brings majors risks.
Companies should consider the use of good security practices from the beginning and implementing ISO 27001 can help along the way.
ISO 27001 is the leading ISO standard in information security. It can be used by companies as a systemic basis for defining, implementing and maintaining a robust remote work structure.
This global certification is not only about what technical measures you put in place. It is about ensuring the business controls and the management process you have in place are adequate and proportionate for the information security threats and opportunities you have identified and evaluated in your risk assessment.
Worryingly, under the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), in the UK, can now issue fines of up to 4% of a company’s annual turnover, or €20 million (whichever is greater) for the worst data offences.
Fear not, we’re here to help!
