SOFTCAT CYBER SEEKS TO AID BUSINESSES WITH SUPPLY CHAIN SAFETY, PLAN DEVELOPMENT AND PRIORITISING PROCEDURES WITH THE LAUNCH OF A COMPREHENSIVE GUIDE
In a new guide, from one of the UK’s leading IT solution and services providers, Softcat has identified the critical factors required to build strategies to protect organisations from cyber attacks with insightful conversations from in-house cyber security experts.
The guide comes at a time when cyber threats are on the rise, and attackers continue to use advanced methods leaving companies searching for the right cyber security strategy and reassurance that they are safe.
Taking a particularly fresh and positive approach to IT security, Head of Cyber Security Services at Softcat, Matthew Helling, points out about the guide: “Almost every report, paper or guide based on the issue of cyber security approaches the subject negatively. It’s all about what you’re not doing right.”
“While there are certainly things to be cautious about,” Helling continues, “at Softcat we’re more interested in focusing on what our customers are already doing well but could be doing better.”
Knowing that businesses today are interested in learning what ‘good’ looks like, as opposed to what’s ‘bad’, the guide outlines how to create strong cyber defence strategies based on a pragmatic and effective outlook with a methodology that includes:
- Prioritising cyber security procedures – concentrating and narrowing in on what’s most important to improve information and computer security
- Developing a concrete plan – including how to enhance existing systems, bridge skills rifts and obtain required resources
- Securing the supply chain – comprehension of every customer and supplier in the chain, and working together to tighten up data sharing
