Training and Awareness
A Major Determinant of Success for Your Security and Privacy Program
Developing a sound security and privacy program is a crucial step in establishing a culture of privacy and mitigating harmful and costly risks. Without company-wide training and awareness, you run the risk of low levels of stakeholder adoption and insufficient understanding of its importance.
What ISO/IEC 27701:2019 Means for Your PII Data
ISO/IEC 27001 offers you a way to demonstrate your organizational commitment to privacy and data protection in a way previously hard to achieve. Now, similarly to the wide array of security standards in the market, certification of 27001 can be used as a business enabler to facilitate agreements with business partners, to assist in relationships with other stakeholders, and provide independent verification of your organization’s protection of privacy. Organizations planning to seek an ISO/IEC 27701 certification will also need an ISO/IEC 27001 certification. This demonstrates a commitment to both information security and privacy management.
Beyond the Tip of the Iceberg:
Understanding the risk that other companies introduce into your network should not be a meaningless check-the-box exercise. Threat assessment projects are not high-profile, glamorous or fun, and if you’re looking to find a trigger point for a battle with your sales team, a risk assessment for a potential client is a sure bet. But the reality is that risk assessments are where it’s at these days, because there is tremendous risk that must be mitigated, and that requires consideration and commitment in order to protect your enterprise.
