Cyber security services
Our cyber security specialists will complete a thorough IT security audit of your devices and security policies, helping identify any susceptibilities that may endanger your business from internal or external threats.
IT Asset Discovery
Businesses are constantly diversifying their IT infrastructures to keep up with growing trends and their competitors. However, this necessity of devices, networks and cloud solutions makes it essential to identify, track and assess all your IT resources to ensure they provide adequate protection to your company’s vital information.
From corporate-owned resources to Bring Your Own Device, IT Asset Discovery compiles a comprehensive list of your assets. This complete understanding of your unique infrastructure stretches beyond your devices – as part of your IT security audit, our team also log which networks can access these resources, all software deployed, and any cloud services your business subscribes to, ensuring no stone is left unturned.
Method’s cyber security specialists not only have the experience and diligence to create a full Asset Register, but the tools to ensure this is kept up-to-date as your business develops.
Valuable data, be it customers’ personal data or company sensitive information, can easily be lost in a deep IT infrastructure, especially one that incorporates the Cloud. Whether it is the result of a breach or poor document management systems, misplaced data can be costly for your business. Remember – not knowing you have data that breaches GDPR is not a sufficient defence from its penalties.
Our document discovery service allows you to compile a complete inventory of your stored data efficiently and accurately, denoting where it is located and who has access to it. Our comprehensive approach ensures business owners and managers have a clear, complete understanding of the documents they possess, and what constitutes personal data.
Beyond simply securing total compliance, GDPR data discovery gives you the chance to uncover and resolve data obscured across your networks. This means you can effectively reorganise files where required to ensure your critical data is easily locatable at all times.
IT Security Compliance Review
Does your business have to observe IT security guidelines beyond GDPR? For instance, if your company accepts, transmits or stores cardholder data, you need to demonstrate PCI compliance. We take this into account in a comprehensive IT security compliance review.
Whatever security standards your business is bound to, Method’s extensive knowledge of these means we can establish if your resources are compliant through a complete IT security audit, identify any gaps, and help you remain secure indefinitely.
IT Security Vulnerability Scanning
Once IT Asset Discovery is complete, the next step is to determine any areas that are at risk of cyber security breaches. With increasingly sophisticated threats to IT security a constant struggle, Vulnerability Scanners assess all devices and associated access/entry/exit points in your network to check they meet best practice, and clearly identify any vulnerable areas.
While Method can provide Vulnerability Scanning as a one-time task, we highly recommend they are done frequently to ensure your business’s IT resources are always secure. As cyber security threats are continually evolving, regular scans help prevent downtime at best and, at worst, loss of corporate data.
End-User Security Awareness
No employer wants to believe their staff is a threat to corporate IT security. Yet even the most hardworking and devoted employees can lower their guard when working from home and accidentally allow malicious individuals to access your network. That’s why the same security principles that staff adhere to in the office must be retained when working from home.
We help organisations achieve this by identifying the existing weaknesses within end-user environments and by offering ongoing and online security training with full management reporting to keep IT security principles at the forefront of their minds.
