When your organisation needs professional Information Security consultants in South Africa, WWISE is your first choice! WWISE offers a comprehensive approach – with a wide selection of available services to ensure that your organisation is compliant and efficient regarding the protection of digital assets and personal information. In this article, we will cover the danger of cyber-threats and how your organisation can take preventative steps to protect against such threats.
What is a Digital Asset?
Most organisations are dependent on computers and electronic devices for communications, storage, word processing, graphic design, etc. Digital assets refer to digital databases, email archives, and digitised document repositories that contain personal and sensitive information on clients, employees, business partners, and internal business documentation. Such assets must be protected against cyber-threats to ensure that hackers do not leak or steal sensitive information that might be tied to non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) or could possibly breach POPI Act regulations.
Internal leaks can also occur – stressing the importance of proper in-house awareness training. WWISE’s Information Security consultants can assist your organisation with these matters. WWISE’s e-Learning portal can also serve as a feasible resource which includes a selection of Information Security courses that revolve around the ISO 27001:2022 Standard.
How Can I Protect My Organisation’s Digital Assets?
Our Information Security consultants can assist you throughout the process of developing and implementing an Information Security Management System (ISMS). The process of implementing starts with a Gap Assessment that involves our consultants and auditors performing a complete audit on your organisation’s business processes that involve handling and accessing digital assets. The purpose of this assessment is to determine the status and conformance to the ISO 27001:2022 Standard, as well as legal requirements regarding the handling and gathering of personal information. This includes contact details, email addresses, and the like.
This process can be followed by the development and implementation of an ISMS that is built on the framework provided by the ISO 27001:2022 Standard. Our Information Security consultants can walk you through and assist your organisation to deliver a tailored solution that can grow with your business and its requirements over the foreseeable future. With ISMS development and implementation, your organisation will take the necessary steps to properly protect your digital assets from internal leaks and external cyber-attacks.
