Securing your business’ daily operations

Companies are a direct target for many cyberattacks today, making it strategically and tactically important to protect the information the business cannot afford to lose. Operations that depend on IT systems for operation, monitoring and control are particularly vulnerable. Insufficient security can jeopardize competitiveness today, and even the long-term future.

Cybersecurity in the corporate sector

Many kinds of companies and organisations in the corporate sector are targets for serious cyberattacks. For example, banks and insurance companies handle a great deal of sensitive, and personal, data that needs to be secured. This enhances the need for cybersecurity in the corporate sector.

Digital development has different names in different industries, but everything is based on the principle of making better use of information technology in several commercialisation steps and operational activities. One of the consequences of digitalisation is the new and changing needs of security for information and technology. New challenges also arise when different systems communicate with each other.

With technology development encompassing Big Data, Internet of Things and API solutions, it is easy to create innovative solutions without technical barriers. Everything is connected and all information can be stored and processed to create added value.

But as companies digitalise, they increasingly face cybersecurity challenges that can threaten their operations and sensitive business information. Digitalisation means that they expose themselves to new cyber threats such as data breaches, ransomware attacks and other forms of cybercrime that can undermine their business and customers’ trust. To secure the digital assets and customer data, solutions at a sufficiently high security level are needed.

Advenica provides solutions that help companies secure their digital transformations and protect operations against data breaches and cyber threats. The solutions are advanced cybersecurity tools such as encryption technology and secure remote access solutions. These tools help prevent unauthorised access and data leaks, and ensure corporate data remains secure as businesses expand their digital footprint. Advenica’s solutions can be decisive in maintaining business continuity and safeguarding the company’s reputation in an increasingly digitalised world.

Regulations for actors in the corporate sector

There are more specific regulations and guidelines for certain businesses, for example banks. The guidelines from the European Banking Authority, EBA, are the European standard for managing security and IT risks. It describes how banks, fund managers and providers of payment services operating within the EU are to manage internal and external risks linked to IT and security. Hopefully, this will reduce the likelihood of attacks, data leaks, disruptions and intrusions. Among other things, the guidelines point out which security measures have to be developed and implemented to mitigate IT and security risks that expose financial institutions. It is essential to understand that the guidelines have legal status and that the operators covered, therefore, are obliged to justify any deviations from its application.

To further reduce potential attack vectors and at the same time provide secure and selective access to the systems from remote networks, a gateway for controlled information exchange – ZoneGuard – should be implemented. By using Advenica’s ZoneGuard with remote desktop capability, access is controlled, and threats towards a remote desktop solution are effectively mitigated in the cross domain point. All information is validated and transformed, which means that sensitive information stays within the protected network, and malicious code cannot spread.

Importing files into secure environments is another area that poses a significant security threat unless the files are properly sanitised before transfer. By using File Security Screener, a high assurance Cross Domain Solution with malware scanning and content disarm and reconstruction capabilities, efficient and automated countermeasures for malware is provided. At the same time, separation for the connected networks are secured. The File Security Screener provides an efficient, scalable, and trusted solution for secure file import.
