Information and data loss is the primary threat facing your business, agency or organization. Security Walls will consult and assist to develop policies and guidelines to create and manage information platforms. Working with industry partners we can provide mitigation strategies to best manage enterprise threats. Cyber incidents should be considered a form of terrorism: They can strike an open, digital society in ways not yet imagined when the security systems built to protect us were designed, to maintain an open society. We must first recognize that all information security is now cyber security, and, secondly, much is going to have to change. These threats come from external and internal sources. When we look at Cyber security and information security, we must develop strategies, policies and guidance that focuses on protecting computers, networks, programs and data from unintended or unauthorized access, change or destruction. Governments, military, corporations, financial institutions, hospitals and other businesses collect, process and store a great deal of confidential and sensitive information on computers and transmit that data across networks to other computers. With the growing volume and sophistication of cyber attacks, ongoing attention is required to protect sensitive business and personal information, as well as safeguard national security. Security Walls deploys six principles when consulting to identify the risk posed to your systems. These principles are as follows:
- All security is cyber security.
- Threats come mostly from the inside out, not the outside in.
- The speed at which security systems adapt is as important as how well they detect and prevent.
- Everything is untrusted
- Security must be built into the fabric of computing.
- The public/private partnership is important.
