What is Cyber Security?

Cyber Security is Not Simply a Function of IT

Cyber security is a continuously evolving, company-wide endeavor driven by policy, training, and culture, supported by automated software tools and compliance monitoring.

As cyber-attacks increase in volume and sophistication, developing and maintaining a cyber-security framework is critical to safeguarding critical data, operations and ensuring business continuity.

 

What exactly is Cyber Security?

Cyber security is the use of technology to protect a company’s information assets against all known and unknown threats.

Businesses need to stay ahead of evolving threats that can take many forms, including technical and physical breaches as well as compromised or hacked systems. As a provider of cyber security services to organizations throughout Canada, Cocoon helps organizations understand how they can prioritize, educate and implement cyber security to keep pace with the constantly evolving threat landscape.

 

Why Do Organizations Need Cyber Security?
  • A robust cyber security plan outlines exactly what risks a company is willing to take and their plan to mitigate against those risks. This plan also outlines how to react in the event of a threat and how to recover from a breach.
  • A cybersecurity solution is a preventive measure against cyber-attacks in the event of a breach. Organizations also deploy and integrate incident response (IR) and counter-measures (CMR) measures as a response to cyber-attacks.
  • Without cyber security, vital company assets can be stolen or compromised and sensitive customer information, customer data, and credit card information can be exposed to criminals.

More about cyber security

Remediation Services

Cocoon’s cybersecurity remediation involves identifying and mitigating security threats that have impacted your business and limiting the damage caused by a breach.

Remediation is needed when the impacts of your security breach cause your business to no longer comply with certification or insurance requirements, and an expert third-party audit is required to help you become compliant again. It is also helpful when you need to notify your customers about the breach, and having a third-party can help you retain their confidence.

Cyber Security Framework Development

Cocoon builds cybersecurity frameworks using a combination of strategy, policy-driven best practices, security awareness training and software tools.

The framework identifies business areas most at risk for data breaches and other compromising cyber-crime activity. Then uses policies, training and tools to reduce and mitigate potential exposures.

Cyber Security Framework Development

Cocoon’s compliance monitoring uses a series of ongoing quality assurance checks and regular monthly status meetings, and further security awareness training to ensure business operations consistently meet the internal process obligations detailed in the cybersecurity framework.

Compliance monitoring is a critical component of any cybersecurity program regardless of whether data protection regulations apply to your organization or not.

Penetration Testing

Penetration testing involves deploying a simulated cyberattack against your organization’s computer systems to check for vulnerabilities and evaluate any related consequences that cybersecurity incidents may have on the resources or operations involved.
