Today we have another guest post, this time by Rhea Murray writing exclusively for Attomus: Let me start by stating the obvious - it pays to offer continuous and comprehensive employee training. A Life with Health CEO Aimee Tariq explains why in her article ‘4 Big Benefits of Improved Employee Training’. She outlines how such an initiative provides a quicker pathway to productivity, enhances employee engagement, improves employee retention, and helps ensure long-term profitability.

Effective Information Security & Risk Management ISRM Programmes

Let us start by stating an age-old maxim : You cannot eliminate all risks. But you can reduce the level of risks to an acceptable standard. That’s why building an Information Security and Risk Management (ISRM) programme is essential. Our businesses generate an ever-increasing volume of data. So, in an era where information is currency, and cyber threats continue to evolve, an effective ISRM programme is a necessity. Let’s take a quick look at ISRM and what it takes to put in place an effective programme.

Building Business Cyber Resilience in an Era of Cyber Breaches

We are operating in an era of expansive cyber-security breaches within both government and non-government organisations. As such, we must continue to build business resilience in the face of constant attacks. Failure to stay ahead of the curve will lead to major losses in the business environment and significant security risks for the country at large. Having worked with government security agencies and the local business community, we’ve seen first-hand what happens when you don’t have a resilient security system.

Using Organisational Culture to Improve Cyber Security

We consistently recommend that you build a resilient business where cyber-security a priority. But what does organisational culture have to do with improving cyber-security? As most managers and CISOs know, one of the least static areas of business is cyber security. That’s because more than half of the fraud in the UK is conducted online. Therefore, in light of mounting attacks, it’s important to increase awareness at the company level. Plus, to ensure your cybersecurity policies are effective, you must get buy-in and action from all levels of staff.

Managing Third-Party Risk - the Importance of Real-Time Intelligence

Managing third-party risk is inevitable when you work with vendors, suppliers, contractors, and business partners. And the harrowing thing is that you have no control over their networks or security. On-off or snapshot assessments of third-party risks still leave your business vulnerable as neither your business nor the third-party’s operates in a static environment. As things change in real time, you need real-time intelligence to manage third-party risk in your firm.
