Notifiable Data Breaches Act - Is your business at Breach?

Notifiable Data Breaches Act - Is your business at Breach?

Notifiable Data Breaches Act.

An astonishing 57% of Small to Medium Businesses (SMB’s) surveyed in the HP Australia Security Study admitted to not undertaking any sort of IT security risk assessment. What this means is that any SMB’s with annual turnover over $3M are now at risk of breaching the newly reformed Notifiable Data Breaches Act. Does your business fall into this category?

All organisations covered by the Australian Privacy Act will now be accountable to the Notifiable Data Breaches Law scheme.

The Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme under Part IIIC of the Privacy Act 1988 established strict requirements for entities in responding to data breaches. Introduced on the 22nd February 2018, all SMB’s with annual turnover over $3M, now have data notification obligations when a data breach is experienced and likely to result in serious harm to individuals and businesses. Therefore, you now must directly notify those whose information is involved in a data breach, as well as report any breaches to the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) and your customers.

Prior to the new law, SMB’s often did not act upon any data breaches, avoiding serious consequences and leaving consumers in the dark by not being obliged to report any breaches.

Is your Business at Risk?

For those that have not yet recognised the issue in not undergoing any risk assessments, your business can now incur significant financial penalties and credibility risks. Hefty fines are now in place, ranging between $360,000 to $1.8M for organisations that fall under the new scheme.

No matter what industry you are in, it is vital to now apply rigorous security standards. “Organisations should implement a process to monitor, detect and report data breaches, but prevention – and reducing the frequency and severity of breaches – is equally important” Paul Gracey – HP South Pacific

Often, data breaches are linked to malicious activities. However, human error can also play a role, where an employee may not follow internal protocols or even lose a company device with sensitive data on it. In other words, security breaches are often inevitable. However, protocols and plans can mitigate the risk, ensuring your business is prepared and with the right preparation your business will be well positioned in regards to your proactive security measures. 

Enspire’s Free Network Analysis

Enspire have now launched a Network Health Check in line with the NDB Scheme, providing a free Network Performance Analysis and Cyber-Health Workshop powered by CQR to unlock the potential of your current network. This is a ‘two pronged’ approach to review your Network Performance & Security. A probe device will be inserted into your network environment for a week, at no cost, allowing the Enspire team to monitor and review your entire environment. The Enspire Security Operations Team will schedule a workshop at your office to breakdown the current status of your Cyber Security Policy and provide recommendations towards addressing any gaps. The end goal is to ensure your environment is not vulnerable, that you have a clear plan towards addressing Notifiable Data Breaches and that your network is performing to its full capability.

Avoiding the Unavoidable - Unplanned Downtime

Avoiding the Unavoidable - Unplanned Downtime

A 2017 survey discovered that 82% of companies have experienced at least one unplanned downtime outage over the past 3 years, with the average number of outages across all sectors standing at 2.

 

Data loss and downtime is costly. Upon experiencing downtime, productivity and customer service are often the hardest hit, giving companies significant and damaging repercussions. Have you ever questioned how much money your business can lose every minute, hour or day? According to analyst firm Aberdeen Group, the cost of downtime can reach up to $260,000 per hour, a cost that is not often quantified amongst businesses.

 

Now more than ever, businesses big and small are embracing cloud technologies to keep up with modern demands. Therefore, applications and workloads within organisations are being transferred across various infrastructures, leaving the infrastructure of businesses in a constant state of modernisation, making it is increasingly difficult for businesses to maintain and develop a Disaster Recovery (DR) strategy.

 

Prevention is key. Often a huge motivator in initiating a DR plan is when businesses are aware of, or have experienced the significant costs involved in suffering downtime.

 

Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) is the ideal solution to mitigate and prevent any risks and safeguard your data should you experience unplanned downtime caused by power outages, natural disasters or simply, human error. A DRaaS solution enables businesses to easily develop and maintain a plan. We’ve seen people assume all data is securely backed up, only to discover that it isn’t. DRaaS goes beyond replicating data and applications. The level of automation allows DRaaS to keep up with the rapid rate of change and backs up your data with every change, whilst keeping systems available for everyday business operations.  

 

Disaster recovery is a solution that is often outsourced to a third-party provider, exposing businesses to unforeseen areas of strategy to prevent and manage unplanned downtime. As expected, DR and backup often require a lot of time and effort therefore, outsourcing your disaster recovery will provide you with piece of mind, allowing you to focus on the things that matter.

Gender diversity in the IT industry

Comment

Gender diversity in the IT industry

The tech industry is widely dominated by males across the globe. Down under, as little as 31% of the IT sector is made up of women, in comparison to the finance and insurance industry that is made up by 56% of females.

Despite years of campaigning for gender equality in the workplace, this still remains an issue within the sector. However, in Australia, things are on the up as major tech companies are eager to employ women, compared to the industry in the US where it is heavily dominated by males. CEO of Girl Geek Academy Sarah Moran decided to open up her headquarters in Australia rather than the Silicon Valley, purely because of the fact that Americans “really don’t care” about women’s involvement.

Thoughtworks, a global tech company with just over 300 employees across Australia, prides itself on maintaining a 50% rate of females in their workplace, playing a major role in improving gender diversity across the industry. This is a company that beat Google and Facebook for top companies of women in tech. This citation recognises the active commitment to achieving gender equality in Australian workplaces, in particularly the tech industry.

So, what is it really like working in a male dominated industry? Enspire’s Suzanna is part of the finance team, a bright young female that loves her work place. Although Suzanna is not a tech person herself, she is surrounded by tech people every day and believes that working for a tech company “is a fantastic environment with a great bunch of caring people that create a great workplace culture”. For some, it may also be daunting to even consider joining a tech company, where “people may think they must be up to date with all technology” to succeed in a career, however this is not the case.

 

Although we are experiencing such diversity challenges within the industry, we have come a long way from the challenges faced some 30 years ago. Enspire are on the rise and are identifying females that are looking to pursue a career within the industry. An industry that is full of exciting experiences with advancements occurring every day, is sure to provide an exciting career for all females.

Meltdown and Spectre Vulnerability

Comment

Meltdown and Spectre Vulnerability

Meltdown and Spectre, the two vulnerabilities that are making a large portion of the worlds computer processors at risk. The hardware vulnerabilities have been discovered in almost every CPU produced in the last 20 years. The attack from the two vulnerabilities is capable of yielding data that is often believed to be protected from any unauthorised users including passwords and private encryption keys.

 

According to current research, Meltdown breaks the isolation between user applications and the operating system, allowing attackers to access the memory and data of programs and operating systems. Spectre breaks the isolation between different applications, allowing an attacker to trick error-free programs, which follow best practices into leaking secrets. As it stands, Meltdown is more easily patched than Spectre as it is a more straightforward abuse of the processor, whereas Spectre leverages speculative execution to trick innocent programs or system processors into planting their secrets in the processors cache

 

Essentially, as the vulnerability is a hardware bug, everything running on affected processes is at risk including Windows, Linux and macOS and some mobile devices. Browsers including Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer all have preliminary Spectre patches. Initially, the original issue was found to be on Intel processors only however, further research has indicated a wider range of processors could be affected with Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), Advanced RISC Machines (ARM) and others may also be vulnerable.

 

With no known attacks using this method so far, Enspire continue to act on the issue to reduce any risk of client data being attacked by allocating all technical recourses to the mitigation of Spectre and Meltdown. Routine backups and updates are in place effectively to secure against potential attacks.

Adopt a cloud solution in 2018

Adopt a cloud solution in 2018

No two people are the same and the same applies to data, where journeys to the cloud are different for every business. That’s why there are many different ways businesses can step into the cloud. There are different aspects for your business to consider, whether to adopt a public or private cloud or Hybrid cloud, is your internet connection going to handle the large volumes of bandwidth and setting up a Virtual Private Network Connection (VPN).

Public, Private or Hybrid?

The main difference between a public and private cloud is that you are not responsible for any of the management of a public cloud hosting solution. The public cloud is often ideal for the small to medium sized business that experience fluctuating demands and don’t deal with highly sensitive data. Conversely, the private cloud is ideal for those business that deal with sensitive data that must be protected. The private cloud also has the ability to be more tailored to suit your specific business IT needs. In recent times, business have the option to deploy both a public and private cloud with Hybrid cloud solutions, allowing business to combine the two, giving you a highly flexible, agile and cost-effective solution.

Internet connection

To run your business in the cloud, your internet connection, speed and quality must be performing at its best as the most common pathway to the cloud is the internet connection. The highest quality of internet is required as cloud applications and backup protocols can use large volumes of bandwidth. This is often the case when large files of images, videos and sound are stored in the cloud however, if text files and documents are only being stored, the impact of your bandwidth may be minor.

VPN Connection

Virtual Private Network (VPN) is often desirable for business that is dealing with sensitive data. The VPN access enforces permission for those that want to access the VPN network that ultimately eliminates security woes of cyber-attacks through Wi-Fi hotspots and backdoor methods. However, VPN’s do have limitations depending on the usage and it is encouraged that you discuss such limitations with your provider to ensure your data will remain secure.

The digital workplace

Comment

The digital workplace

It’s hard to grasp the modern workplace and understand where to draw the line between the physical office and the place where work actually happens. Now more than ever, workplaces are increasingly digital, allowing the entire workforce to communicate and collaborate in many new and effective ways, ultimately allowing for productive business relationships beyond the natural work groups, enabling knowledge sharing across the organisation. 

At the EUC 2017 insights, attendees were questioned, “What is your definition of a digital workplace?”- where many attendees agreed that it involves a digital, virtual, paperless and sometimes cloud-based place, platform or environment.
 

Working anywhere, anytime

A VMware report discovered that employees are spending 50-60% of their time away from their desks suggesting that businesses of all sizes are creating digital workspaces, allowing employees to access data anywhere anytime. The key here is that employees expect to work and complete what they need to complete when they want from any location. Mobile access lies under the digital workspace and plays a major role in allowing employees to work remotely, as 71% of employees agreeing to spending 2 plus hours per week accessing company information on mobile devices.
 

New revenue streams

Adopting a digital workspace is not all about providing access to work anywhere anytime. 48% of companies that have successfully implemented a digital workspace or mobility initiatives see improvements in their ability to rapidly bring new revenue streams online. Improving customer loyalty and efficiency in reacting to customer requests and demands with technological advancement, acts as a key factor in increasing revenue, allowing companies to handle and satisfy more customers at any given time. Additionally, mobility adopters have witnessed an average of 150% ROI, with a main cause being increased agility to capitalise on new revenue opportunities.

The digital workplace has now become a must, empowering employees with the latest digital tools to satisfy the modern requirements of the digital workplace. If your business has not yet stepped into an entire digital workplace, the expert Enspire team are immediately on hand to take your business to the next level.

Trends to come in the Cloud

As the end of 2017 looms, we assess what has occurred and look forward with the aim to predict the future trends ahead. Cloud computing has been part of business operations for quiet sometime now, long enough that we expect significant cloud advancements year after year. IT professionals are now turning their attention to how they can use cloud computing to accomplish business objectives throughout 2018, and what advancements will best suit their business model.

 

Increased cloud storage

Technology is moving faster than we can imagine, giving tech companies a constant battle to keep up with increasing demand across all sectors. With cloud services being a crucial aspect to business functionality, data centres are facing a battle with an urge to increase available storage to meet demands. A Cisco survey estimates that the global storage in data centres is estimated to reach a global storage capacity of 1.1 Zettabytes (ZB), approximately twice the space available in 2017. So, what does this mean for business? For small business, bespoke storage options will become available at much lower rates than 2017, allowing small business to become more agile in storing their data. Businesses that are involved with Big Data will be able to use this increased space to store large data sets, perform analytics on them, and harvest valuable insights into areas such as customer behavior, human systems, and strategic financial investments. 

 

The Internet of Everything (IoE)

The ability to allow humans to interact more intelligently than ever with extreme dependency of machine to machine communication. Cloud computing will have an imperative role in the development of IoE as more complex systems will be created to bridge all communication platforms used by humans. The way humans and machines interact with each other is predicted to dramatically change forever, where machines will have more access to data to expand networking opportunities, allowing pretty much everything to talk to each other. Stay tuned for future reports in this area!

 

A more agile business

An agile business is constantly evolving, and able to adapt to both internal and external factors to meet their customer’s requirements. The future of Cloud computing will allow businesses to be more adaptable than ever. In particularly with increased cloud storage and the introduction of the Internet of Everything, organisations are going to be generating and analysing data like never before, allowing for business to better interact with current and potential clients and become increasingly agile in decision making.

 

With one in three Australian business now running on cloud services and cloud adoption rates on the rise, let your business reap the rewards of what cloud services have to offer to better your business and satisfy your company objectives in 2018.

How does the Cloud keep up with Black Friday demand?

Comment

How does the Cloud keep up with Black Friday demand?

The migration of consumers shopping online rather than in store continues to rise dramatically year on year. This trend is replicated on one of the biggest shopping days on the calendar, Black Friday, where online sales surpassed $3.34 billion (Deborah Weinswig, Forbes) in 2016 and expected to increase yet again in 2017. So how does cloud infrastructure cope with the high demands in a single day, with other countries capitalising on the American Thanks Giving tradition?

Auto Scaling

Auto-scaling is the cloud computing service feature that has the ability to automatically add and remove computer resources depending upon actual usage. In simple terms, the higher the usage, more unused computer resources will be removed to allow for higher abrupt usage rates. A feature as such is undoubtedly required when an estimated 108.5 million American shoppers alone shopped online over the Black Friday weekend in 2016 (Phil Whaba, Fortune). With market leaders Amazon leading the way in the online shopping sector, traditional retailers are spending billions in online shopping infrastructure to remain competitive, leading to sharper e-commerce performances for retailers. Maintaining optimum cloud performances with features such as auto-scaling is allowing many retailers to boast online sales growth.

Online shopping with cloud infrastructure

Think Black Friday and think massive lines across all shopping centers. With many traditional retailers continuing to invest in online retailing, retailers are giving customers the option to avoid lines and make purchases at the touch of their fingertips. However, online shopping is not all about allowing retailers to avoid lines, its about generating alternative revenue streams and generating new data for innovative thinking, all made possible by the cloud.

 

Ultimately, customers expect a seamless customer experience with no downtime, ultimate efficiency and ease of use. Such expectations are undoubtedly expected on days like Black Friday, meaning cloud infrastructure must keep up with consumers buying more and buying faster, where the cloud must provide accurate inventory records with its real-time data capabilities.  The cloud will make such information accessible for both parties on any device for a more streamlined, integrated process, allowing businesses to calculate how much stock is needed and what has the highest demand on the big day.

The unimaginable on Black Friday

Should the unimaginable occur on Black Friday, where an online retailer may crash, the cloud’s Disaster Recover as a Service (DRaaS) will provide online retailers with fast, real-time asynchronous data replication for true data recovery. Providing retailers have a sustainable partnership with a cloud service provider, a disaster recovery plan should be in place to allow for a smooth recovery under such circumstances.

 

Enspire remain leaders in cloud infrastructure, sustaining a proven track record in disaster recovery and providing optimum cloud services to wide range of diverse corporations.
