To ensure your business is compliant with the cyber security laws and regulations in your industry, get in touch with the team at Managed247 today.
All businesses that use IT systems are at risk of a cyber-attack so you should never assume your business is safe. It’s important to take the appropriate security measures, not only to safeguard your business from downtime and lost profits but to make sure your business also adheres to legal requirements.
At Managed247, our team have the capabilities to provide cybersecurity compliance services to those businesses required to comply with cybersecurity regulations and standards.
Non-compliance of legislation can lead to a number of consequences, such as financial penalties, reputational damage, and even imprisonment.
To help you reduce the risk of non-compliance, we will work with you to ensure your IT environment complies with the relevant regulations and standards set out by the bodies that relate to your industry.
What is Cybersecurity Compliance?
Cybersecurity compliance is the process of adhering to the industry standards, regulations and laws that relate to data privacy and information security. Different standards and regulations exist for different types of organisations, so understanding how to stay compliant and what rules to follow can sometimes be difficult for business owners.
This is where managed IT providers such as ourselves come in. We can:
- Assess security risks within your company by highlighting potential vulnerabilities and threats.
- Advise you on the regulations and bodies that are relevant to your industry.
- Make sure the proper policies and procedures are in place to ensure compliance.
- Implement intrusion detection and prevention systems, firewalls, data encryption, and more, to both protect the needs of your business and its customers and to ensure you are remaining compliant with the relevant regulations.
- Provide ongoing support with consultations, training, and technical assistance to make sure your business is fully up-to-date with the latest best practices in cyber security compliance.
What data is subject to cybersecurity compliance?
The majority of cyber security laws revolve around data protection. As a business owner, it is your duty to ensure sensitive data doesn’t get into the wrong hands and this is why you should treat security seriously.
Sensitive data can include:
- Personally identifiable information, such as first/last names, date of birth, address, and social security information.
- Financial information, such as bank account details, credit card numbers and verification values, and PIN numbers.
- Protected health information, such as medical records, prescription details, and hospital admission records.
Other types of information that can fall under data protection laws include email addresses, marital status, race, and biometric data.
It’s important to protect this information to ensure compliance and to gain the trust of the people who use your business.
By putting the correct security measures in place, you will tick both of these boxes and protect your business from reputational and financial risk.
