The importance of cyber security

Cyber threats are part and parcel of doing business in the 21st Century
Find out more

Cyber threats are constantly evolving as cyber criminals, state threat actors and hacktivists develop new methods to get past the defences the industry develops.

The damage to organisations from cyber-attacks is wide-reaching, including reputational, operational and monetary. In the last year alone, more than 60% of businesses have experienced a cyber-attack.

Taking a proactive approach to cyber security-by finding the right balance of technical and human security measures as well as gaining an in-depth understanding of what threats are specific to your organisation-is key to defending your organisation’s valuable assets and ensuring operational resilience.

Cyber security is everyone's responsibility

Importantly, cyber security is no longer the sole responsibility of technical teams, cyber security is the responsibility for every department-from the Board to finance to procurement.

Helping you understand how well your organisation is set up to manage cyber risk

Because cyber threats vary from company to company, sector to sector, there can’t be a one size fits all approach.

The cyber security maturity model is designed to cover the many cyber security and compliance requirements of your business. It helps you fully understand your organisation’s current security position and where it needs to be, measured against your specific threat profile.

What is a cyber security maturity model?

BOM’s cyber experts help you understand how established your current security measures are, how effectively they would address potential threats, and evaluate whether current maturity levels align with the business’s risk appetite, risk tolerance levels and external governance requirements.

This will inform the level and priority of investment necessary to keep your data and reputation safe.

BOM IT Solutions believe that there’s no point allocating excessive budget to something if it’s not required.

Why undertake a cyber security maturity model?

Understand your specific threat profile

BOM will work with you to understand the specific threats your organisation faces, including threat actors and motivations and compliance requirements.

Invest only in the security measures you need

The maturity model will provide direction for prioritising investment. The assessment will highlight which aspects of security require the allocation of resources, time and budget. And, equally, it will reveal the areas that are already mature, where current investment is sufficient.

Facilitate a common understanding of good security across the business

Communication between the technical and non-technical parts of a business can sometimes result in confusion. The maturity model enables all parts of the business to understand where security must be prioritised. From this, actions can be assigned to business functions or departments to improve or enhance security measures.

BOM know our systems and business inside out, for us it's all about peace of mind.

Because of BOM we don't need to worry about IT, we are looked after and supported. The technology and IT support just works!

We've been with BOM for 10 years and I still know the same people on support which has been great for continuity and a testament since we partnered and linked up our companies.

Minimal explanation is needed when issues come up with the associated software, BOM speak and work with 3rd party vendors on our behalf.

Confidence and reliability are the two key things BOM deliver for Soilfix.

Confidence is delivered with the technology systems they provide and 18 months into the relationship the service has been reliable. We find the team easy to work with, which is a great bonus.

 Soilfix

BOM is an extension of the One Post department giving us the highest level of technical support.

If we can't resolve it internally then BOM are the first port of call. We think of BOM as an extension of the IT services department, very bright people who've dealt with our IT challenges a number of times.

The service relationship has worked extremely well for us. It's an extra insurance when we need to act quickly. They get problems resolved and have a good track record with us over the years. We value the extra insurance and out of hours cover.

We would be happy to recommend BOM IT Solutions. One Post have a lot of IT expertise in house, however it's still valuable to have a strong 3rd party team available in BOM, sense checking and a sound board for our technological future.

How can BOM IT Solutions help?

Many organisations only undertake a review of their cyber security capabilities if there is a need to do so-usually when a breach has already occurred. However, the inevitable ‘blue-light’ response environment can skew the balanced risk management judgements that the maturity model is designed to inform.

Importantly, the cost of a breach in the future-which can often run into the hundreds of thousands-far outweighs the cost of proactively assessing your level of cyber security maturity to reduce the likelihood of a breach.
