Cyber Security

Cyber Security

With the increasing reach of technology in the workplace, the threat of a targeted or opportunistic security breach has never been greater. Securing systems is a challenging and complicated task, but taking the first steps towards a more robust security model doesn’t have to be. We work with clients to assess the risks and potential weaknesses in their network and remedy security issues. In particular, we focus on cloud hosted environments and the network and security setup and configuration.

We offer services in managed antivirus, host and network intrusion detection, security audit, ISO compliance, and assistance in performing penetration testing and interpreting the results.

At Vertix we follow industry best practice and standards with respect to any security work that we undertake and we offer services in two main areas:

  • Targeted Security Requirements
  • Cyber Security Frameworks

Our experience is in getting small to medium businesses prepared for the threats of a modern, technical landscape. At Vertix, we believe that a thorough understanding of all aspects of technology helps us to enhance and improve the security around our client’s systems.

🔒 Cyber Security Frameworks

When dealing with business-wide security requirements the focus is to create and implement an Information Security Management System (ISMS). An ISMS is a set of policies and procedures aimed at minimising risk and ensuring business continuity by proactively limiting the potential impact of a security breach.

In creating a cyber security framework, we have a multi-phased process:

  1. Define business assets clearly.
  2. Identify the risks to those assets.
  3. Create policies and controls to mitigate risks.
  4. Identify and implement solutions for the treatment of issues.
  5. Continually revisit this process to ensure it remains current.

Clearly identifying business critical assets is a key step in ensuring that those assets are protected. Which assets, if compromised, would cause the business to be severely impaired or cease to function? Keeping this list to a minimum allows attention to be focused where it matters most.

Planning for the possibility of a compromise and how the business should recover, enables it to minimize impact and recover quicker.

The most important aspect with any cyber security framework is ensuring that it remains effective going forward. Continually revisiting procedures, risks, training and external penetration testing enables the framework to evolve with the business. This frequently takes the form of a steering committee, where key members of the business, and Vertix, assist in the foundation and ongoing maintenance of the framework.
