Cyber security solutions
Hawsons has a dedicated team who provide cyber security solutions in Sheffield, Doncaster and Northampton.
Cyber Security Risk Management
We help organisations with data protection and cyber compliance, protecting both your data and that of your clients. Demonstrating that you have robust systems for data protection is becoming increasingly important for three reasons:
- To reduce the risk of fines
- Protect your organisation’s reputation
- Winning new customers, especially when tendering for new business
Cyber Security Management System – CSMS
Cyber security and information security are like many other aspects of your business. If you think about aspects such as customer service, credit control and ordering goods, your organisation has a system or process so that everyone in the business knows what they need to do, how to do it and when they need to do it. Cyber and information security are no different. You need a set of systems and processes called a Cyber Security Management System (CSMS) sometimes known as an Information Security Management System (ISMS).
Hawsons CSMS has been developed in conjunction with leading cyber security experts and ENISA the European Union Agency for Network and Information Security and is compatible with ISO 27001:2013.
The 5 steps to your Cyber Security Management System
We provide all the tools you need to create your CSMS. There are 5 steps:
- Appoint a person with overall responsibility
- Identify the risks in your organisation
- Mitigate those risks with security solutions
- Issue cyber security policies based on your risks
- Train your staff on your risks and policies, and then test their awareness
The Hawsons CSMS is a thorough and practical way of ensuring all risks are considered and mitigated. Aided by a series of work programmes, checklists and structured working papers a fully documented audit trail is created showing the assessment of risk and the rationale for decisions made on risk mitigation. This fully documented audit trail is important evidence to show that your organisation has done everything it can reasonably be expected to do to minimise the risk of data loss and if something does go wrong you can find out how and why it went wrong.
When implementing your CSMS you decide how much help you need from Hawsons dependent upon the amount of time you have available and the level of expertise you have in your business.
Our involvement can be as little as training your staff on how to use the methodology through to providing a full service where we carry out the entire work and manage the whole project on your behalf.
