Organizations are increasingly dependent on their digital infrastructure. At the same time, these organizations seem to be more vulnerable than ever as cyber criminals’ techniques become more and more sophisticated. So how can you handle this situation? In other words: how do you become a secure online organization?
This was one of the topics discussed by Dell and LeaseWeb customers during a roundtable discussion about security. IT security specialist and journalist Brenno de Winter provided interesting insights in his introduction: “If your company wants to be a secure organization, you have to manage risks. There are four options when dealing with risks: accepting them, reducing them through security measures, avoiding risks by ceasing certain activities, or to partially outsource risk management to a third party. There are also affordable insurance policies against hacks available which are worth considering. But no matter what you do, make sure you have a risk management strategy in place, supported by tools that identity the security risks of your organization.”
Trust is built with consistency.
LeaseWeb has rapidly expanded its business across the globe in the past years. As a result, there were many separate and standalone certifications for different services and products within our organization, several of which overlapped. A restructuring of the compliance portfolio was needed. Last year, we started with a clean sheet to completely rebuild our global portfolio. In addition, we initiated the search for new audit partners who could support this mission together with our procurement department.
Today, I would like to provide you some insight into how we handled the restructuring.
