Information is the lifeblood of most contemporary organisations. It provides intelligence, commercial advantage, and future plans that drive success. Most organisations store these highly prized information assets electronically. Therefore, protection of these assets from either deliberate or accidental loss, compromise or destruction is increasingly important.

ISO 27001 is a risk-based compliance framework designed to help organisations effectively manage information security.

Having an international standard for information security allows a common framework for managing security across business and across borders. With an evermore connected world, the security of information is increasing in importance.

Data and information needs to be safe, secure, and accessible. The security of information is important for personal privacy, confidentiality of financial and health information and the smooth functioning of systems and supply chains that we rely on in today’s interconnected world.

ISO 27001 provides the framework for organisatons and security teams to effectively manage risk, select security controls, and most importantly, a process to achieve, maintain and prove compliance with the standard. Adoption of ISO 27001 provides real credibility that we understand security and take security seriously.

ISO 27001 is made up of a number of short clauses, and a much longer Annex listing 14 security domains and 114 controls. The most important of the short clauses relate to:
  • The organisational context and stakeholders
  • Information security leadership and high-level support
  • Planning of an Information Security Management System (ISMS), including risk assessment; risk treatment
  • Supporting an ISMS
  • Making an ISMS operational
  • Reviewing the system’s performance
  • Adopting an approach for corrective actions
Based on the risk profile of the organisation, controls may be selected to manage identified risks. Within the Annex, the 114 listed controls are broken down into 14 key domains which are listed below:
  1. Information security policies
  2. Organisation of information security
  3. Human resource security
  4. Asset management
  5. Access control
  6. Cryptography
  7. Physical and environmental security
  8. Operations security
  9. Communications security
  10. System acquisition, development and maintenance
  11. Supplier relationships
  12. Information security incident management
  13. Information security aspects of business continuity management
  14. Compliance

Snare Solutions Announces Commitment to Global Efforts Supporting and Promoting Online Safety and Privacy for Cybersecurity Awareness Month

This year’s initiative highlights the importance of empowering individuals and organizations to better protect their part of cyberspace in an increasingly connected world

October 1, 2020 — Snare Solutions today announced its commitment to Cybersecurity Awareness Month, held annually in October, by signing up as a Champion and joining a growing global effort to promote the awareness of online safety and privacy. The Cybersecurity Awareness Month Champions Program is a collaborative effort among businesses, government agencies, colleges and universities, associations, nonprofit organizations and individuals committed to this year’s Cybersecurity Awareness Month theme of ‘Do Your Part. #BeCyberSmart.’ The program aims to empower individuals and organizations to own their role in protecting their part of cyberspace.

The overarching message of this year’s theme, ‘If you Connect it, Protect it,’ dives into the importance of keeping connected devices safe and secure from outside influence. More than ever before, connected devices have been woven into society as an integral part of how people communicate and access services essential to their well being. Data collected from these devices can detail highly specific information about a person or business which can be exploited by bad actors for their personal gain. Cybersecurity Awareness Month aims to shed light on these security vulnerabilities, while offering guidance surrounding simple security measures to limit the susceptibility of threats for commonly used devices.

This year, the Cybersecurity Awareness Month’s main weekly focus areas will revolve around:

  • Understanding and following general security hygiene for connected devices and home networks
  • The importance of connected devices security for remote workers
  • How connected devices play a pivotal role in the future of healthcare; and
  • The overall future of connected devices for consumers, professionals and the public domain

If everyone does their part – implementing stronger security practices, raising community awareness, educating vulnerable audiences or training employees – our interconnected world will be safer and more resilient for everyone.

Now in its 17th year, Cybersecurity Awareness Month continues to build momentum and impact with the ultimate goal of providing everyone with the information they need to stay safer and more secure online. Snare Solutions is proud to support this far-reaching online safety awareness and education initiative which is co-led by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA) of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

“Cybersecurity is important to the success of all businesses and organizations. NCSA is proud to have such a strong and active community helping to encourage proactive behavior and prioritize cybersecurity in their organizations,” said Kelvin Coleman, Executive Director, NCSA.
