Are Your People Putting Business Security at Risk?

In a big enough company, it’s likely that some departments will never cross paths. IT support will rarely have any cause to interact with HR, and vice versa.

However, there is one critical common interest: security.

Threats to business security all have people at their core.  It doesn’t matter what industry you’re in, or your role. You could be exposing the whole company to threats without even realising.

Up to 9 in 10 data breaches are caused by people, mostly through lack of training.


Knowledge gaps affect all departments of a company. Accidents can happen, leading to hackers gaining access


We recently reviewed a global study and found that three quarters of personnel would open a phishing link.  Within these respondents, 91% had not had up-to-date training.


Putting it Into Context

While cyber security and data compliance are crucial across the board, it’s best to think of it in context.

Imagine a manufacturing company. You have the production side of things, led by IT teams, which is vulnerable to cyber threats. You then have the physical security of guarding your warehouse, and general people management within HR.


So many issues can link so many different departments, because ultimately, good business security relies on people


Our security health check takes a 360° approach, not just from a departmental perspective, but from a functional one.

We look at strategy and operations to identify problems and implement solutions.


Integrating Departments

Through education and training, our health checks can help departments better understand each other and move towards a common goal of enhanced business security.

This could involve IT teams outlining cyber threat updates, or HR teams promoting data protection compliance.

We offer a real practical background in the subject matter, plus operational and strategic experience in areas such as defence, immigration, health and transport.
