Our ES data breach security plans are built upon the Microsoft Office 365 and Azure platform and are fully managed by our security team. Protecting you against data breach, our plans will mitigate many common security risks associated with email systems and sharing of data.
The security plans will also help your organisation become more compliant and equipped for the NBD legislation. A legislation that affects many Australian organisations.
Each organisation has the critical responsibility to protect their own corporate data containing sensitive personal information. In doing so they must also protect the handling of their customer and partner data.
Personal information (PI) is information about an identified individual, or an individual who is reasonably identifiable. Information that is not about an individual on its own may become PI when it is combined with other information resulting in an individual becoming ‘reasonably identifiable’.
A data breach constitutes personal information that an entity holds being subject to unauthorised access or disclosure, or even data loss. It may be caused by malicious action, human error, or a failure in information handling or security systems.
A malicious or criminal attack deliberately crafted to exploit known vulnerabilities for some kind of gain be it financial or other. So unlike human error and system faults, a malicious cyber attack is an intended action to create a data breach situation.
Phishing attacks accounted for over 50% of malicious attacks. Involved users being tricked into disclosing sensitive information such as usernames, passwords and credit card details by cleverly disguised emails posing as trustworthy entities.
Short for “Malicious Software”, malware are small computer programs design to infiltrate your computer system. Malware is a term commonly used to group these programs such as (but not limited to) viruses, spyware, worms, trojans etc.
A form of malware that will block access or threatens information disclosure if a ransom is not paid. Generally associated with the common crypto locker cyber attacks which have become all too common with victims frequently featured in the media.
Human error is when no malicious component is present, and the breach is a direct result of an accidental human mistake from staff, weak processes etc. Some of these breaches may include:
When data containing private information is disclosed to the incorrect recipient by error or incorrect process. Such as unknowingly emailing sensitive PI such as TFN or credit card details.
Common error when emailing large groups of recipients when the blind carbon copy (BCC) is not used, revealing personal email addresses and names to the entire group.
Accidental disclosure by addressing an email or letter containing sensitive PI to the incorrect recipient that is not authorised to view that information.
Our ES data breach solutions will mitigate various malicious and human threats and even cover some system error aspects. By blocking, alerting or warning both the user and our security team of these threats in real-time, your organisation has a much better chance at reducing its data breach risk.
The system is fully managed by our security team and the customer will receive interactive reporting straight to their device.
