SRS Technical Blogs

If you are a non-technical business executive, you may not know precisely HOW to properly protect your data and networks, but you have a keen awareness that it’s crucially important and that it will become more so in future. And, you are absolutely right!

SRS has developed a comprehensive custom IT Security solution intended to simplify this important task for executives leading growing companies by providing a market-tested expertise in custom cybersecurity design. SRS is always up to date on leading edge technologies while never discounting the solid technology that’s been around a while. Our recommendations are based on your individual needs.

Here’s an important word of caution. Some cybersecurity vendors like to “get their foot in the door” and sell you whatever appears to be within your perceived budget or what seems “reasonable.” Think anti-virus with a firewall “thrown in.” On the surface it sounds like you’re getting a lot of value; but their objective is to make a sale which often results in a false sense of security on the part of the customer. Really, how good can that firewall really be? Is it a very robust firewall or a “firewall lite?”

What any cybersecurity vendor (or IT Services provider) should be talking with you about is your risk profile. That’s what should be informing your budget process because your first line of defense is your strategic use of technology coupled with a sound set of policies & procedures.

A cybersecurity risk profile documents the types, amounts and priority of information risk that your organization finds acceptable and unacceptable. This is an important part of the SRS Workscope and is developed collaboratively bringing together the business leaders, data and process owners, risk managers and the compliance team(s). Elements of a risk profile will explore data integrity and data leak prevention, how to safeguard data at rest & in transit, capacity planning, information sharing permissions, etc.

If you are looking for a partner to help you develop your company’s risk profile, get in touch and we’ll make sure it gets done right!
