Managing risks successfully with the Cetbix ISMS

In the concept of information security, the management of risk is an important part of corporate management. The Cetbix risk assessment approach enables organizations to identify, analyze, evaluate, create, communicate, control and monitor risk. The Cetbix ISMS enables organizations to centralize records and control all company-related risks.

Cetbix Intelligent-Approach base on the CETBIX risk -assessment supports the whole risk management process:

In addition to other risk issues, Cetbix ISMS looks into the following:

  • Identification of risks, description of type, causes, and effects
  • Analysis of the identified risks with regard to their probability of occurrence and possible effects base on the Monte Carlo analysis
  • Breaks several risk incidents to a comprehensive constructs
  • A risk assessment by comparison with risk acceptance criteria to be defined in advance
  • Risk management and risk control through measures
  • Integration with the Internal Control System (ICS)
  • Risk categorization and risk aggregation (incl. client capability)
  • Risk monitoring with reminder notifications and workflows
  • Risk records for the documentation of all processes
  • Predefined risk reports and the possibility to create your own reports (Report Designer)
  • 3D Risk management dashboard for data visualization

In this pace of information technology (IT), information security risk has also increased. IT security risk is an important issue in industrial sectors, and in organizations that are innovating owing to globalization or changes in organizational culture. Previously, technology-associated risk assessments focused on various technical factors, but as of the early twenty-first century, the most important issue identified in technology risk studies is the human factor and the interrelationship between technology and human.


Data Encryption

As businesses are becoming increasingly reliant on data, it is vital that information is secure. Big companies lack encryption and are not aware of why they have to encrypt their data. Organizations are progressively dependent on data, it is essential that data is secure. Data security is important to your organization, to win the trust of your customers and to comply with legislation such as the General Data Protection Regulation. There is a vast range of data security methods available, but when it comes to encrypting your data one of the best options is to use the state-of-the-art encryption method.

Understanding encryption

The major issue with encryption in the context of major organizations is the difficulties they face when deciding on the right encryption process and which methodology they need to adopt. The Cetbix ISMS enables an organization to come across the right approach base on its data classification.  Cetbix ISMS educates organizations on the need for data encryption at rest and during transmission.

Cetbix ISMS Intelligent-Approach enables organizations to understand that SSL/TLS is not enough, and therefore has the potential to be intercepted by someone else accessing that same network. This can be an internal network or the internet. Therefore, the Cetbix ISMS process protects your data against unauthorized access by encrypting all traffic over the network.

Apart from data encryption, Cetbix ISMS enables the right approach to encrypt storage devices such as laptops, workstations, mobile devices, smartphones, cell phones, and external storage media.

Why you need this tool?

Large organizations have countless methods of internal and external communication, each of which can lead to a breach of confidentiality and even more importantly, a leak of crucial information to competitors and the outside world.

Every year, confidential information of millions of customers are exposed to potential fraud in  data breaches, e.g. in 2007, a major retailer lost over 90 million of customer data, in 2008 a major bank lost over 10 million of confidential information in data breaches and an international hotel currently faced a £99 million GDPR fine as the ICO reports public awareness of information rights is soaring.

Furthermore, imagine this should happen to your organization? How much will this cost you? Can your company bear such costs?  Considering the consequences, the importance of setting up a comprehensive information security management system immediately becomes apparent.
