Our (local) governments have a large responsibility to establish and keep a safe way to provide information. This is complex as roles and responsibilities are not just diverse, but also constantly changing. Many specific laws and regulations are concerned with keeping our citizens' information safe. Secquard helps your organisation to prove you are in control of your cybersecurity.
Due to the confidential nature of medical data, healthcare professionals have an important task to monitor this information. In this context, healthcare organisations therefore often have to do with specific legislation and professional rules, which are often stricter than for other sectors. Secquard provides easy insight into the extent to which you comply with specific healthcare related regulations with regard to cyber security.
The contemporary accountant has attention for the reliability and continuity of IT systems in his auditing as well as in his advising role. Secquard is employed by auditors and consultants to quickly gain accurate insights in the essential and actual technical security measures of their clients. In this way you can judge objectively, increasing the overall effectiveness and efficiency of audits and advisory assignments.
Managed Service Providers (MSP’s) increasingly form an important target to hackers, and more and more often act as an entry mode to the actual targets of cyber criminals: their clients. By using Secquard you show that cyber security has your priority, while you decrease risk for your clients.
Our (local) governments have a large responsibility to establish and keep a safe way to provide information. This iscomplex as roles and responsibilities are not just diverse, but also constantly changing. Many specific laws and regulations are concerned with keeping our citizens' information safe. Additionally, almost all vital processes and systems are at least partially digitised.
Many of these laws and regulations – or best practices – are concerned with controls and measures that are needed to realise certain safety standards and focus on the same four categories that Secquard does: Hardening, patching, antivirus and authorisations. Having these matters in order enables confidential information from citizens to be processed on a daily basis.
Secquard provides plain and simple insights in how well your security configurations hold up to regulation or policy. It also enables you to easily provide in-control statements and helps you get in control when needed.
Unfortunately, it still regularly happens that governmental organisations do not have the basic measures of their cyber security in order. A famous recent example is the Dutch Maastricht University, which suffered a ransomware attack, for which it paid a hefty sum of money to cyber criminals in addition to the costs of the response professionals. Many of these attacks can be easily avoided by having your basic cyber security measures in order.
Secquard provides instant insights in how well the basic measures for cyber security are implemented and where in the organisation your network is vulnerable to disruption, manipulations or unauthorized access by third parties.
The confidential nature of medical data ensures that healthcare professionals have an important task in monitoring this data. In this context, healthcare professionals therefore have to deal with specific legislation and professional regulation, which are often stricter than for other, less sensitive, data.
The quantity and use of healthcare data are growing exponentially and IT systems are becoming increasingly complex. Virtually all vital processes and systems within healthcare are partially or completely digitized. Healthcare providers exchange data. Patients increasingly use apps to store and view personal data. Smart, interconnected medical devices such as scanners, measuring equipment, laboratory devices and other technology that processes or stores medical data are progressively used to meet the increased demand for information. This all makes the healthcare sector specifically vulnerable to cyber incidents.
The increased dependence on information and communication technology (ICT) creates possibilities for compromise of patient safety for healthcare institutions. In addition, healthcare institutions are still particularly vulnerable because they have not implemented sufficient basic cyber security measures. The basic measures for cyber security are a highly effective and simple way to help protect your organization, regardless of size, from the most common cyber-attacks.
Secquard instantaneously reveals whether the basic principles have been incorporated and where within the organisation the ICT network is vulnerable to disruption, manipulation or unauthorised access by third parties.
IT makes business processes in organisations increasingly efficient and effective. However, we are also becoming more dependent on it. It is therefore essential to know that the quality of IT is up to standard. Not only to safeguard the continuity and quality of vital processes, but also to live up to the higher demands that are made to transparency, IT-governance and compliance.
This is why more and more organisations adopt cyber security in audit plans. The necessity of audits of cyber security tools, policies and processes to ensure adequate and sufficient measures have been made is therefore becoming paramount. Contemporary accountants therefore pay attention to the reliability and continuity of IT systems in their auditing as well as their consulting roles.
Secquard can be employed by auditors and consultants to gain immediate insights in essential and actual technical IT security measures from clients. This significantly decreases the dependence on subjective answers to audit questions and positively affects the overall effectiveness and efficiency of audit and advisory tasks.
Managed service providers (MSPs) are increasingly a major target for hackers. Cyber attacks on MSPs have therefore increased considerably in recent times. MSPs can serve as a launch pad to the real target of cyber criminals: One of their customers. If hackers have access to systems, they can access customers' or suppliers' systems.
If an MSP is demonstrably in control of cybersecurity, this gives a competitive advantage in a market in where competition is mostly dictated by price. About half of SMEs are willing to pay at least 20 percent more to a new provider if the right cybersecurity solutions are provided. Therefore, getting cybersecurity in order not only generates potential new customers, but also increases sales with existing customers. If an MSP does not offer cybersecurity products and services, it runs the risk of losing customers. Almost 90% of SME customers would consider switching to a new MSP if it offers appropriate cybersecurity products and services. In addition, it appears that 75% of organisations hold their provider responsible for a security incident, even if the MSP has not included cybersecurity in its services.
With Secquard we make it easy for you. By using our product, you can see in an instant whether you meet the basic measures that various governments around the world have confirmed to mitigate cyber risks.
