Information has to be protected to maintain the trust with customers and maintain compliance with the governing organization.

In today’s competitive world, companies have to move their business to the internet, where they communicate with millions of secure and insecure computers. During this communication, information is exchanged, but the security of the supplied information depends on the security of the other computer which is consuming this information.  The growing threat of cyber-attacks has alerted governments and companies and the need for securing the infrastructure and information.

Key Challenges faced by companies today

  • Access Controls: Your business should not be free for all employees so they have access to everything. Internal attacks are one of the biggest threats facing the world today. Resources having access to networks, data centers, and admin accounts can cause serious damage.
  • Mobile Devices: Smart Phone and Tablets have increased the productivity of companies but a careless employee with an unlocked smartphone or tablet may be maliciously leaking information to the competitors or any open email might be posing an enormous security threat to company’s data and systems.
  • Unpatched Devices: There are a lot of devices in the network that is not regularly patched which leaves these exploitable devices for an attacker to get access to your network and data.
  • Cloud Application: Companies have been moving their business to the cloud, most of the companies are not using data level cloud encryption to protect sensitive information
  • Firewall Polices:  Firewall is usually the first level of defense against any attack.  A majority of firewall breaches are caused by misconfiguration of firewall policies and rules.
  • Monitoring: Employees usually download content from websites or through email which causes security breaches. It is very important to monitor what your users are doing on the web.
  • Security Awareness Training:  This is one of the biggest areas which many companies ignore. Most security breaches actually originate within the companies where employee are not able to spot email phishing or spoofing attacks. They share company sensitive data through emails without encrypting and sometimes send sensitive information to their own phones.

People often think Information Security as hardware and Software. Actually, it is the entire set which includes software, hardware, people, data, network, policies and procedures in a particular organization. Each component exhibits its own characteristics which include strength & weakness; each component has its own security requirements which need to be secured.

We understand information security cannot be absolute, it is a process which needs to be improved not a goal which needs to be achieved. We do understand that system should be made available to anyone, anywhere, anytime but such access poses a danger to the information. At KMM, we understand these challenges and work with your team to provide methodology, processes & procedures to ensure all information security risks are assessed and later mitigated.
