Cyber Security

Almost all small businesses now make use of the internet in their day-to-day work (eg online banking, outsourced payroll, even just email to communicate with suppliers and customers). Some SMEs take this further and use the internet as a critical component of their service or the delivery of their service (eg businesses which take orders from their website).This use of the internet is beneficial in many ways but carries with it the risk of an internet-borne attack. For many businesses, a focus on internet-borne attacks provides an excellent first step to improved security. The UK government has created the Cyber Essentials scheme as an entry-level standard against which companies can be measured, and if compliant, certified. This certification proves to your customers that you take security seriously and that your business meets the requirements laid down by the UK government. Cyber Essentials certification is also mandatory for many contracts with government departments.Amwell can guide you through the process to become compliant with Cyber Essentials and gain certification.

Information Assurance

Information assurance goes beyond Cyber Security and looks at information as a critical asset of your business which needs to be protected against threats to its confidentiality, integrity and availability. As well as the technical threats addressed by cyber security, information assurance looks at how to identify your information assets, protect them appropriately, detect any attacks/leaks and respond to them efficiently.

The most prominent and internationally recognised standard for information assurance is ISO 27001, which is used by many large organisations around the world. However, research has shown that smaller companies perceive the time and effort to achieve and maintain ISO 27001 certification to be too onerous.

IASME (Information Assurance for Small to Medium-sized Enterprises) is an information assurance framework which provides smaller companies an option which is more appropriate to their size and complexity. IASME is based on international standards and EU guidance and is simple, quick and cost-effective to implement. Certified IASME compliance can be used to demonstrate to your customers that you have taken the next step in assuring your business and its information assets.

Amwell can guide you through the process to become compliant with IASME and gain certification.
