Reasonable Information Security

Information security is one of the most emotionally charged topics we come across. It’s about protection of company data and uptime of systems.

How Secure Do We Need to Be?

The answer is different for every business, but the cultural norms around information security always come from the top down – company leadership needs to provide communication on their security priorities.

Protecting Sensitive Data & Systems

We look at it like this: implementing ‘reasonable information security measures’ can be challenging due to limited resources and budget constraints.

However, there are several steps that businesses can take to ensure that their sensitive data and systems are protected:

  • Access control: Implement strong authentication and access control procedures, such as two-factor authentication and role-based access control, to prevent unauthorized access to sensitive data and systems.
  • Network security: Secure your network with firewalls, virtual private networks (VPNs), and other security measures to prevent unauthorized access and protect sensitive data from being intercepted.
  • Data backup and disaster recovery: Regularly back up important data to a secure location and have a disaster recovery plan in place to ensure that you can quickly recover from a cyberattack or other disaster.
  • Anti-virus and anti-malware: Implement anti-virus and anti-malware software on all systems and regularly update it to ensure that you are protected against the latest threats.
  • Employee training: Provide regular training to employees on information security best practices and how to identify and respond to security incidents.
  • Regular security assessments: Regularly assess your security posture with vulnerability scans, penetration tests, and other security assessments to identify and address potential vulnerabilities.
  • Third-party security: Ensure that any third-party service providers you use have strong security policies and procedures in place to protect your data.

By implementing reasonable measures for information security we can balance the investment with the benefit of protecting sensitive information and data from likely threats.
