INFORMATION SECURITY EVOLUTION
As your business changes and matures so must your security policies.

INFORMATION SECURITY GOVERNANCE

When it comes to information security, every organization can benefit from having a designated person or group who “owns it.” IS Governance describes having an internal team in place that stays abreast of your security environment, trends in security threats, and policies.

Which is why Agape IT Solutions usually recommends clients form this internal group from the moment we begin to partner with them. It creates experts, accountability and continuity in your security plan.

We can help you form such an internal team or find the right point person, and then train them on their role. 

This governing body approves your policies and initiatives. They’re the group we work

with directly and make recommendations to. Whether it’s a single person or a team,

having staff who take ownership of information security can be a smart place to

begin.

INFORMATION SECURITY RISK ASSESSMENT

We recommend every client engage us periodically for this comprehensive review, in

threats. Your Information Security Risk Assessment includes:

  • Disaster Recovery / Business continuity planning
  • Review of Information Security Governance
  • A defense in-depth evaluation

INFORMATION SECURITY POLICIES AND PROCEDURES

Data is built into almost every aspect of business. It’s crucial to understand your weak spots on a regular basis. And to build in controls that can minimize evolving risks. Do you have formal policies that everyone follows? How do you classify data? Where and how do you store it? Dispose of it? We’ll show you four vital steps to take to secure your data.

Chances are, you have a baseline of informal policies and procedures that govern the security of your network. But if you’re like many companies, those policies may be unwritten rules that are inconsistently followed and difficult to prove you even have in place.

OUR INFORMATION SECURITY POLICIES AND PROCEDURES SERVICE:

Guides you through the process of formalizing the policies and procedures that safeguard your organization. Helps you make sure everyone on staff is working from a more structured, consistent play book. Leaves you better prepared for a potential audit, because we look at specific compliance issues related to your industry and your region. Produces detailed written policies, also vital to qualifying for cyber liability insurance.

HERE IS WHAT YOU GET...

At the end of your policies and procedures engagement, you have two options:

Option #1: Consult with your internal team

Agape IT Solutions will work with the customers’ stakeholders to facilitate the process of security policy creation, and advise on the proper implementation and management of those policies.

Option #2: Create a custom solution

Based on customer requirements, Agape IT Solutions will draft security policies to meet the needs of the organization. We will work with the customer to achieve policy approval and advise on the proper implementation and management of these polices.

INFORMATION SECURITY TRAINING AND AWARENESS

Information Security and Cybersecurity awareness typically takes a backseat to the busy schedules of staff. Your organization can lower this risk by simply educating your users on basic information security best practices. So, they know how to properly save data and where, how to recognize and report security incidents, and how to safely handle sensitive information.

OUR INFORMATION SECURITY TRAINING AND AWARENESS SERVICE:

Agape IT Solutions encourages our customers to complete our end user security awareness training program. End user awareness is the first line of defense against cyber security threats. This program can be held on customer premises or at our headquarters in Rochester, NY. All students will be provided a test to validate understanding of key cyber security defense principles and the customer will receive an overall completion report.

Provides regular training of employees on best practices related to security specific to your organization. 

Ensures your employees are up to speed on the latest cyber threats and they know how to abide by your cybersecurity policies and procedures.

Reaches your employees and reinforces compliance from different angles—on-site training sessions, office posters, and informational materials. We can put together an entire program just for you.

When preferred, trains you to train your staff personally. Without regular training, staff can become complacent and some best practices can fade from their minds. Plus, the vulnerabilities out there are constantly evolving and become more savvy. But with regular, engaging, user-friendly training, your workforce can be more savvy, too.

BUSINESS CONTINUITY AND DISASTER RECOVERY PLANNING.

 If the unforeseen happens, how fast can you get back up and running? Which systems would absolutely have to be functioning for you to be in business again? A Disaster Recovery Plan, or DRP, can provide greater security, reduce downtime, and ensure your standby systems are functioning properly. It can also help your staff know precisely how to proceed amid a chaotic moment for your organization.

Whether or not you already have a DRP, Agape IT Solutions can help you make sure, it’s as advanced and sound as possible. For some organizations, their DRP may be inadequate, which can mean a false sense of security about potential outages and losses.

We’ll team up with you through the entire initiative (All 5 steps):

Step 1 - We’ll start by taking an inventory of every system component and type of data, and take a criticality reading against all your processes.

Step 2 - From there, we can rank which are most important, so you know in what order your systems and processes would need to be brought back up after a disaster.

Step 3 - We’ll talk with you about your tolerance for being down? Can you be offline for a day? An hour?

Step 4 - From our assessment of your current state, you’ll get an impact analysis that shows you what it would cost you to be down for a specific period.

Step 5 - Our experts will build a step-by-step plan, so you know exactly what to do to get your core operations up and running again—including a plan to be able to communicate immediately with employees.

After your DRP is in place, we urge you to test it yearly. We can help you run a test to see if the plan in place is still effective, timing how long it takes you to get system back online and recover critical information.

Every DRP is different. And Agape IT Solutions can help you build one that fits you just right—and helps you sleep better at night.
