Cyber Security Support for your business
Today, companies depend on the internet for everything from selling products and services, to talking to customers and carrying out financial transactions. While this brings benefits, it also creates risks. Because every day, cyber-criminals are using the internet to attack companies to steal their money and data, creating expensive, time-consuming disruption.
While no business is ever entirely safe, you can prevent most attacks by putting in place some robust security measures for your people, processes and IT systems.
How Dr Logic can help
We’re committed to helping our clients make their IT systems as well-defended as possible. We can implement a wide range of security measures tailored to your business to protect you against the cyber security risks you’re likely to face. These include:
- Protecting you against viruses and malware
- Protecting your networks, devices and users from phishing attacks
- Keeping your IT estate up-to-date
- Protecting the remote working environments
Our Core Cyber Security Package
We provide a baseline core package of first-class cyber security services.
Antivirus and MDR – Endpoint Protection, Detection and Response
Antivirus is an essential line of defence against malware attacks. It can also prevent or remove adware, spyware, ransomware and other types of malicious programmes. It works by searching your files for viruses and checking for any suspicious programme behaviour that might indicate an infection.
Any kind of malware can wreak havoc: just one infected computer can open up your whole network, putting your data and even your clients and customers at risk. Even relatively minor attacks can cause significant downtime until the infection is located and removed and damaged or deleted files are restored.
That’s why it’s vital to install antivirus on every device in your company, and to teach your employees how they can help to protect against these kinds of threats.
There are a lot of antivirus products out there, but at Dr Logic we recommend CrowdStrike Falcon, an advanced next-generation anti-malware and antivirus suite which offers state-of-the-art endpoint protection.
Antivirus solutions should be used alongside an MDR (Monitor, Detect and Report) system for full protection. MDRs scan your systems for potential threats, detecting and escalating them for review. This provides a comprehensive solution, and ensures anything that may have slipped through your antivirus is detected and reported.
Mobile Device Management
MDM (Mobile Device Management), also known simply as IT Device Management, is a cloud-based, multi-tenant platform that means Dr Logic can manage macOS, iOS, iPadOS, and iOS devices for all your staff, and across multiple locations — with ease.
- Automated Deployment: We can deploy new devices in less than 5 minutes! And by leveraging Apple Business Manager, we can automate device enrollment and onboarding for new staff.
- Monitoring & Remediation: We can actively monitor for device issues and automatically remediates them before they result in downtime for your employees.
- Device Security: We take the security of your Apple devices very seriously. The platform we use was built with always-on compliance across all Apple devices under our care. So, if a device gets stolen or lost we can immediately revoke all access rights to your systems and data.
We implement a robust Patch Management routine to keep software on your computers and network devices up to date and capable of resisting low-level cyber attacks.
Any software is prone to technical vulnerabilities. Once discovered and shared publicly, these can rapidly be exploited by cybercriminals.
Criminal hackers can take advantage of known vulnerabilities in operating systems and third-party applications if they are not properly patched or updated.
Why is patching important?
Prompt patching is essential for effective cyber security. When a new patch is released, attackers will quickly identify the underlying vulnerability in the application and release malware to exploit it. If a criminal hacker can successfully attack before the target patches the vulnerability, there’s a high risk of a data breach.
To keep your company protected, Dr Logic will ensure that software is:
- Licensed and supported
- Removed from devices when no longer supported
- Patched within 30 days of an update being released
Complete Cyber Security Package
Over and above our Core Cyber Security Package, we recommend a range of supplementary cyber security services designed to ironplate your company’s security defences, including:
- Password Management system
- Cloud App Usage scanning
- Data Loss Prevention procedures
- Secure Access Service Edge (SASE)
- Security Operations Centre (SOC) to run your SIEM
What’s a SOC and SIEM?
Implementing a SOC and SIEM will help you meet some of the Cyber Essentials certification and ISO 27001 criteria.
SOCS and SIEMs are vital tools to prevent your business from becoming a victim of cybercrime.
If these terms aren’t familiar to you, here’s a quick (and simple) run down on how having these functions in place for your business can be a game changer when it comes to preventing cyber threats.
At Dr Logic, our SIEM (Security Incident Event Management) constantly collects all the activity logs from our client’s devices and cloud services. So if someone logs into their account from an unusual location, or is granted access to a restricted account, we pick that up in the logs. The SIEM looks for patterns in unusual activity and when it sees something it doesn’t like the look of in the logs, it alerts the SOC (Security Operations Centre).
The SIEM also takes in live feeds from threat intelligence, which means the SIEM receives real-time information on things like the latest malware and suspicious IP addresses. The Dr Logic SIEM takes in 6 open-source feeds, including Malware Bazaar and Anomali.
The SOC reviews the suspicious logs as it receives them. And if it sees something it thinks might be an information security risk, or of any immediate concern, it alerts the Dr Logic team so we can look into it. We routinely review the SOC reports and raise any anomalies with the client.
And we can apply our own rules for suspicious activities at a client level. So if you’re only operating in the UK and suddenly there’s a login from Russia, for example, that’s an immediate red flag to the SOC.
