Maximize your operations to minimize a possible breach of trust.

Trusting your employees and the third party organizations you work closely with takes an all-encompassing security effort from your entire company. With sensitive corporate information exchanging hands frequently within the office and around the world, your organization becomes exposed to threats from every vector – network intrusions, web attacks, malware, patch management issues and data loss.
Thankfully, there are steps you can take to drastically reduce your susceptibility to internal and external security breaches.

The wrong way to handle trust within your organization:

“We have several policies in our employee manual that detail security best practices.”

The smarter way to handle trust within your organization:

To minimize the cost of a breach of trust, you must first identify where your trust relationships exist and what could happen if they are taken advantage of. By zeroing in on these relationships and the role they play within your organization, you can prioritize security projects, employee training and policies to reduce possible vulnerabilities.

How we approach trust

Your greatest security threat: human error
If it wasn’t already difficult enough to fight off external attacks, you must also dedicate a substantial amount of time to the threat of employee-made mistakes. Downloading rogue applications, accidentally losing company data and falling prey to web or email-based malware are unfortunate habits of many employees. To combat this issue, a mix of employee education, strategic management and security projects that directly target human error should be a priority.

Finding a balance between defending your turf and decreasing productivity
Securing your company is clearly your number one goal. However, before investing in new security products or company initiatives, consider the effect of these projects on your employees. Is your encryption software intuitive enough for your newest employee? Does certain restricted internet content cause work delays? Is blocking social media a necessity? When will you conduct patches and system reboots? Do our compliance guidelines make sense or are they confusing? These questions will help you create an employee-friendly security environment they can identify with.

Embrace better practices
The last thing you want happening is a data breach. With a constantly evolving security landscape, you need to have your ear to the ground, listening for new threats and fresh approaches to defending against attackers. This can sometimes be an overwhelming task, so it never hurts to get a second opinion. By adding an RJS Smart Security consultant to your team, you get an expert with years of experience working with companies in industries just like yours.

The technology in our toolbox

  • Lean Security Reviews
    To strengthen your company's foundation of trust, we highly recommend a Lean Security Review. In this review, we examine all threat vectors that may harm your business - network threats, web attacks, malware, application control, data loss and breaches of trust - and provide you with a strategy document that details how you can protect yourself from internal and external attacks. Learn more about our Lean Security Review.
  • Security Assessments, Testing and Assistance
    To see whether your organization is susceptible to a data breach, an assessment can be a helpful tool in identifying internal and external threats. If a deeper examination is necessary, security testing is readily available. Finally, when issues are identified or if compliance expertise is needed to manage PCI or HIPAA regulations, we can provide security assistance. A combination of these offerings can go a long way to fix any broken links in your network of trust.
