It’s hard to keep up with today’s cyber threats, especially with a smaller team or lack of skilled resources. Sekuro has developed a solution to collaborate with your organisation to lift up your cyber resilience game.
IT teams do not look the same in size across every organisation. It is not a one size fits all, especially today as the demand for skill does not keep up with the current, ever-increasing threats in the cyber landscape. The pressure for smaller teams to stay on top of threats while maintaining business continuity is real.
In addition, the potential for damage to the organisation’s brand is ever-present, and teams must constantly stay up to date with new and growing threats. This becomes a challenge for any IT team, and doubly so for those without a full-time security specialist.
The pressure is mounting as it is the goal of the Cyber Security Minister, Clare O’Neil, for Australia to be the most cyber secure nation by 2030. At a recent event, proudly hosted by Sekuro and Mills Oakley, business leaders joined the Minister for enlightening discussions on Australia’s progress to towards that goal. One point was clear: This goal is only possible through the collaboration of the best thinkers and thought leaders in Australia to uplift cyber resilience and capabilities, while taking a holistic approach to finding solutions. Everyone must work together.
What is cyber resilience and why is it complex for organisations to achieve?
Cyber resilience is the ability of an organisation to withstand or recover from a cyber security threat.
Through a wealth of experience, Sekuro understands that for modern businesses, dealing with IT Security risks has become a complex scenario for executives and overwhelmed IT staff. The requirements that organisations must meet to achieve their complex business goals and satisfy their high-demanding customers, force them to continually incorporate new technologies and tools, as well as work to meet external regulations compliance and implement best practices. Therefore, some organisations are incorporating complex and messy processes to manage and protect their system resources and data from unknown threats.
To be prepared to face new cyber security challenges, companies are not only required meet compliance measures and adopt new practices, but also need to have the right people and skills in place to properly configure and manage them. Managing security posture while delivering core services is a challenge for smaller organisations. Skill shortages and lack of resources present a headache and lead to overwhelm.
The onus should not just be on the security team. Sekuro believes IT Security should be a cross-organisational domain, and IT Security guidelines should be considered from the design phase of new business processes or technologies. It’s also not too late to put proper processes in place in already established organisations. In addition, Sekuro believes that IT Security should not only involve IT Staff, but also business stakeholders to create ownership and accountability. So how can this be achieved despite the obstacles businesses are facing? How can businesses achieve a strong organisational security posture with limiting resources and skills while keeping up with BAU?
Collaboration to the rescue - Introducing the Cyber Resilience Program
Echoing the sentiment that we must all work together to achieve cyber resilience, Sekuro has introduced the Cyber Resilience Program (CRP). The CRP is a highly customisable subscription-based service that is designed to manage and improve an organisation’s cyber security, as well as enhance their cyber maturity level and reduce risk. The CRP will act as an extension of the customer’s team by providing ongoing proactive support and guidance, regular security baselining and testing, and ongoing training for the in-house IT team.
The CRP will provide support to the customer to manage their security program which will ultimately lead to cyber security maturity improvement – providing peace of mind to the business. This will be achieved by partnering with experts in the field and upskilling staff to adapt to new and ongoing security threats.
The Cyber Resilience Program is designed to free up time for the customer to focus on improving their business processes, whilst Sekuro focuses on improving their cyber security processes. Providing transparency, Sekuro will work closely with the customer to develop a cyber security program and guide the team through decisions, processes, and technologies the customer needs to build up their security capabilities. With a deep understanding of the best and new technologies, Sekuro will work alongside the customer to know and address their unique requirements along their journey to adopting them.
Sounds great! So in a nutshell, what are the key benefits of the Sekuro’s Cyber Resilience Program?
- On demand capacity – In response to insufficient resources, the CRP provides on demand capability, to support your cyber security efforts. This ensures that your organisation can maintain and improve your cyber security maturity level.
- The right skills and expertise – The CRP provides on-demand access to a range of cyber security and IT professionals with the skills, expertise, and flexibility needed to address cyber threats and support bespoke projects.
- Continual improvement – To stay ahead of evolving threats, the program’s structured framework includes regular security assessments, gap analysis, and ongoing training and development for your cyber security maturity.
What makes this program different from Zero Trust or Sekuro’s GRC assessments?
With the CRP, we will help our customers build an ongoing business resilience capability. Rather than giving them a roadmap they can execute, Sekuro is on the journey with them every step of the way. We aren’t providing an instruction manual and leaving the organisation to sort it out. With CRP, we are helping you build your resilience together as a team and providing you guidance, resources, skills, expertise like you would have if you had your dream in house team. As the Minister O’Neil stated: We are in this together. Collaboration for business resilience is the way forward.
