When you’re outsourcing or offshoring, online security is paramount. Learn how to utilize it.
As one of Australia’s fastest-growing outsourcing providers, we understand the value of online security. After all, we’ve worked with leading engineering, mining and construction companies who rely on us to keep their best-kept secrets private.
So far, we’ve gathered a wealth of outsourcing experience, especially in the construction and engineering arenas. And we’ve worked with a full range of businesses that wanted to take advantage of outsourcing – from small businesses to ASX-listed companies.
To give our clients the peace of mind needed to focus on growth, we go above and beyond to safeguard cybersecurity. We use industry-standard tools and the best practices to keep client information as secure as it should be.
Our security team has a vast knowledge of the best security practices and we’re always learning. When developing our security system, we wanted to make sure that only the best IT experts work alongside us.
And this led us to partner with Ready Offshore to create Ready Secure.
What is the Ready Secure System?
The Ready Secure system does a lot to fully protect clients against all types of potential attacks.
For starters, it implements a password policy that requires all passwords to be complex and to change regularly. This simple practice alone can prevent many attacks, and yet so many businesses don’t use it.
Of course, Ready Secure also uses high-end technologies and methods to protect data.
Among these is by locking down access to your systems so that no one but the BPO can access them. This cuts off logins from all uncontrolled devices. Furthermore, it prevents the sharing of credentials with anyone unauthorized to have them.
You’ll obviously have to share your platforms and data with your remote team. So, how do you do this without giving them access to sensitive information?
Ready Secure has an excellent solution.
You can give controlled access to your systems so that the remote team only has access to the things they need for their tasks. They won’t have access to your passwords, sensitive information, or whatever else that you want to keep hidden.
The above measures are just the tip of the iceberg. Both our team and Ready Offshore have installed a comprehensive set of security measures to protect your outsourcing priority.
Of course, we also perform regular pen tests. Once done, we make sure the results are available for our clients to confirm that our security measures are strong enough to protect their companies.
But why is all of this so important?
A secure company is a company that doesn’t have to worry about data breaches. It’s a company that can feel confident in the service it provides because it knows it has all of the right measures in place.
So… Is your company secure? Could it benefit from outsourcing and using a system like Ready Secure? And if it could, how do you choose an outsourcing supplier that can get the job done?
In this article, we show you what makes a company secure and offer some tips on choosing the right supplier for your needs.
What Makes a Secure Company?
All modern businesses rely on online technologies, but only to some extent. If you keep sensitive data on a remote server, it’s crucial to keep the information away from prying eyes.
What does this mean?
It’s all about having the right security for it.
How To Know If Your Outsourcing Provider Cares About Security
Outsourcing providers will always tell you that they can protect your data. Unfortunately, not all of them will be able to deliver on this promise.
Because of this, you’ll want to discuss the concrete measures that your provider has in place.
When talking about cybersecurity, you’ll want to ask the provider about the following:
1. Cybersecurity Team Experience
A reliable outsourcing provider should have a dedicated IT and cybersecurity team. If they don’t have one onsite, they should partner with a reputable cybersecurity firm. You need to ensure that the provider’s team can manage and protect your data against all online threats.
In addition to industry-standard tools, the security team should have extensive experience. As mentioned, cybercrime is getting more and more sophisticated. So the provider’s team will need to do a great job of being updated and keeping track.
2. External Pen Testing
The best way to see if an attacker can get access to your data is to simulate an attack. This is commonly referred to as the external penetration testing or pen testing.
In a pen test, the security assessor tries to breach the internal system through a series of simulated attacks. During these attacks, the assessor will use different strategies to examine vulnerabilities at multiple angles.
Since this is an external test, the assessor will focus on the external facets. These include shared files, access, and emails.
A pen test is an excellent way to see if your provider’s security measures are powerful enough to withstand attacks. It can give you the confidence needed to commence work with the outsourcing provider.
The two mentioned above should give you a good understanding of the provider’s cybersecurity measures.
You should only proceed if you’re absolutely certain that they’re using high-end strategies. Don’t neglect to scrutinise every aspect of their security system, as you shouldn’t have to worry about the chances of your data falling into the wrong hands.
Work with a Reliable Provider
Staying protected in an online world is vital to long-term success.
