Encryption is the holy grail of IT security, securing your data both in transit and at rest using the most complex of algorithms.
At ghsquared, we achieve encryption using the Public Key Infrastructure methodology. This is a set of hardware, software, people, policies, and procedures needed to create, manage, distribute, use, store, and revoke digital certificates and manage the public-key encryption so that your data may flow over the internet securely.
Single sign-on (SSO) is a session and user authentication service that permits a user to use one set of login credentials (e.g., name and password) to access multiple applications or systems without entering them each time. The service authenticates the end user for all the applications the user has been given rights to and eliminates further prompts when the user switches applications during the same session. This may prove convenient for your employees or users and removes the need for multiple passwords on multiple systems, essentially giving a seamless integration of your environment.
The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has fundamentally changed how organizations & businesses approach protecting their own personal data and even more importantly their customers data. Its epicentre is the fundamental right to data privacy for European citizens. Organizations that fail to comply will run the risk of hefty fines – up to 20 million euro or 4% of their global annual turnover – whichever is the highest.
At ghsquared, we look at all our projects through a GDPR lens and try to help your business make the right decisions around the discovery, handling and processing of personal data. We also look at what organisational measures need to be taken from a compliant approach such as records of control, lawfulness of processing in terms of consent and contract to an infrastructural level such as anonymization & encryption.
IT security awareness is no longer an option, it is an essential part of your companies protection. The recent growth of security threats like Phishing, Ransomware and data theft can cause enormous financial, reputational and legal damage to your company. At ghsquared, we offer IT security awareness training to your employees to familiarise themselves with GDPR compliance, management of certificates and to review, define and uphold the security strategy for your business in relation to IT security.
