How It Works

Data security is not a destination, but a continuous journey.

Assess Risk

The SyberSafe Risk Assessment provides a comprehensive look at the physical, technical, and administrative safeguards in your business. By identifying your current security processes and procedures, the Risk Assessment will calculate your level of vulnerability and provide recommendations for reducing the risk of a data breach.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new privacy law that provides strict guidelines (and very hefty fines) on handling all EU users’ data. Even if you are not part of the European Union, if you collect personal data from someone in an EU country, your company is subject to the requirements of the GDPR.

Businesses found not in compliance face fines up to $20M Euro (about $23M US) or 4% of global turnover, whichever is higher.

Compliance Planning

A fully customizable data protection plan is the core element to properly mitigating the risk of a data breach. This plan establishes best practices and industry standards to help your business become “compliant” to state, federal, and international laws, but also to any regulatory agencies under whose jurisdiction your business falls. The Compliance Plan is essentially the handbook of instructions for your business regarding the protection of all data collected, stored, transmitted, shared, sold, or used in any other way.

Breach Response

The Breach/Incident Response Plan is critical to your business in the event of a data breach. This response plan provides you with the necessary individuals to contact (breach attorney, PR firm, executive officers, etc.), main emergency protocols, and an action plan to remediate the problems caused by a breach.
