With the media attention on cyber-attacks and ransomware recently, now more than ever, it is vital that you are taking every step necessary to protect your business.
A Security Lifecycle Review (SLR) is an essential tool in helping your customers to understand their current cyber-security posture by spotlighting potential risks within their network. An SLR helps show which applications are being used, including SaaS and 'shadow' applications that might have gone undetected otherwise.
Why is Cyber-Security Important?
In just the past year, a large number of high profile organisations have come under attack, with the most notable being the ransomware attack in May 2017 that infected over 230,000 computers in nearly 150 countries, causing sustained damage to the National Health Service, as well as a number of international corporate and government organisations. To give you an idea of the scale, here are just a few of the largest organisations that have come under attack in the past few months; Dailymotion, MySpace, Yahoo, Verizon, uTorrent, Lynda.com, Wonga, Tesco Bank, Snapchat, National Childbirth Trust, Clinton Campaign, Telegram, PayAsUGym, Three, and many more.
Why should I run SLRs for my customers?
In this digital age, it is absolutely vital that your customers can rely on you to ensure their security. In fact, as many as 60% of small to medium businesses that experience a data breach go out of business after 6 months. This can be due to a loss of customer confidence, the fines associated with a data breach under the DPA and GDPR, or a general lack of trust and bad reputation of the company affected.
This is why a Security Lifecycle Review is important. By offering a Security Lifecycle Review, you are offering peace-of-mind to your clients, allowing them the security of knowing exactly how their security is performing and being able to tackle problems before they arise.

When network security is breached...
...it's easy to start pointing blame, trying to find who was responsible, but by this stage it is too late. The only option for protecting yourself from cyber-attach is to tackle the issue before the matter. Taking preventative measures to reduce your risk of being targeted is vital to ensuring your security as a business. Implementing a Security Lifecycle Review helps to highlight vulnerabilities and areas for improvement in your cyber security by showcasing which applications are in use, and the potential risks of exposure, as well as specific details on ways adversaries are attempting to breach the network, comparison data for your customers' organisations, versus that of their industry peers and key areas to focus on for reducing your customers' risk exposure.
