PCI DSS v4.0 is coming: how to meet its continuous compliance challenges

If your organisation accepts card payments—think Visa, Mastercard, American Express and so on—then you’ll know it has to comply with the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council’s PCI Data Security Standard version 3.2.1 (PCI DSS v3.2.1). No ifs. No buts. If your organisation accepts card payments, then compliance is a requirement. And of course so […]

A variety of legacy Systems are an open door to Cyber criminals

It’s true to say that that with the exception of new start-up’s, most businesses have legacy systems to manage. This can be for a multitude of reasons: Firstly, these may be systems inherited and are thus considered, rightly or wrongly, too low risk and therefore not imperative to upgrade; couple that with the cost to […]

Does your data help you thrive or survive?

Our networks are rich with data and the explosion that has occurred, particularly before, during and after covid, has caused severe consequences in many businesses as IT teams struggle to move, store, analyse and protect a business’s prized asset.

Alert fatigue: missed cyber threats, staff retention issues and, ultimately, business crisis

The ever-growing number of cyber alerts and resultant ‘alert fatigue’ is creating a vicious cycle that can turn into crisis situations for business leaders. But, before we look at evidence of the scale and severity of alert fatigue—and the attendant high cost for businesses—here’s the true and salutary story of Jake. It demonstrates just how […]

Continuous Controls Monitoring: offering a unified approach to the 3 lines of defence.

In your organisation, who is responsible for cyber risk? As organisations grow the answer to this question becomes less clear.

Protecting against supply chain attacks: how Continuous Controls Monitoring can provide assurance

Increasingly, businesses have two supply chains. There’s the familiar physical supply chain, along which physical goods flow—and then, in parallel, there’s an information supply chain, along which data flows. But not always just data. Because connecting a business’s IT systems to those of its customers and suppliers can expose the business to threats, as well. […]

Continuous Control Monitoring: putting audit back in control

For internal audit functions, a worrying circularity occurs when auditing IT controls. And it’s this: to obtain the data that the audit function needs to check, it is necessary for them to go to a plethora of different business functions and request it. In other words, the controls being audited, are owned by the very same […]

How Continuous Controls Monitoring helps to mature your cyber security strategy

There is little debate about most facets of an effective cyber security strategy. Should it dovetail with the IT strategy, for instance? Of course. Should it complement the overall business strategy? Without doubt. Should it secure as many IT and data assets, end points and services as is pragmatically possible? Naturally. And so on, and […]

Chances are, your organisation is reasonably comfortable with how it manages cyber security risk.

Understanding your assets is the starting point to securing them

“Asset visibility” is a recognised core concept in Information Security and there are few factors which are more important today than knowing exactly what you have in your estate.
