How secure is our business?
Matching the right layers of security to the right assets through identification, classification and risk assessment.
Protecting critical assets to safeguard value and operations
Data, systems and software assets are the lifeblood of modern business, and should be protected as such. Working out which are the most important to protect, so that security measures can be prioritised, is vital; a uniform approach that applies the same security provision to every asset may mean some particularly vulnerable assets are left under-protected.
Working out which assets need the highest levels of protection (and vice versa) can be difficult. Establishing a consistent method of evaluation across departments, including controls and remediation plans, can be repetitive and time-consuming. It’s also often regarded as a tick-box exercise for compliance reasons, whereas in reality it’s a vital part of safeguarding some of the most important and valuable assets within an organisation.
The key questions you should ask yourself are these:
- Where within the business are the biggest areas of risk?
- Which types of assets are considered critical?
- How can controls be applied to those critical assets?
- What protections are in place should there be a failure in security elsewhere in the supply chain?
If you’re struggling to answer any of these questions, then sourcing the help of an expert partner in critical asset protection is essential.
How SCC can help
Our critical asset service can help you more easily identify and classify your assets, so that you can distinguish those that are most critical and put more robust security provision in place accordingly. We consider your assets in the context of how important they are (both financially and operationally), how likely they are to be attacked, and what is required to protect them sufficiently.
Thanks to our years of experience working with organisations just like yours, we can identify assets that may be more vulnerable than you thought, highlighting gaps in security and areas that may require extra attention and investment.
