ICT products are used by billions of people, every day, all over the world. Beyond the laptops and PCs, routers and servers allow the streaming of information and collaborative working that underpins much of modern life.
Given the centrality of ICT to today’s society, the reliable, secure operation of these products is vitally important. To help achieve this, several testing and certification programs are applied.
What is it?
While compliance is similar to security in that it drives a business to practice due diligence in the protection of its digital assets, the motive behind compliance is different: it is centered around the requirements of a third party, such as a government, security framework, or client’s contractual terms.
Compliance is often viewed as the figurative stick which motivates the donkey, rather than the carrot. If an organization wants to do business in a country with strict privacy laws, or in a heavily-regulated market like healthcare or finance, or with a client that has high confidentiality standards, they must play by the rules and bring their security up to the required level. For example, regulations like HIPAA and SOX, or standards like PCI-DSS or ISO:27001, outline very specific security criteria that a business must meet to be deemed compliant.
Privacy is the right of individuals to have control over how their personal information is collected and used. Many consider data privacy to be the most significant consumer protection issue today. One factor which contributes to this is growing technological sophistication, and the resulting types of data collected.
Security refers to the process of protecting data from unauthorized access and data corruption throughout its lifecycle. Data security includes data encryption, hashing, tokenization, and key management practices that protect data across all applications and platforms.
Integrity refers to the accuracy, consistency, and validity of data over its lifecycle. Compromised data, after all, is of little use to enterprises, not to mention the dangers presented by sensitive data loss. For this reason, maintaining data integrity is a core focus of many enterprise security solutions.
Transparency is basically defined as openness and accountability in all areas of business. Many IT organizations are also taking a closer look at transparency and accountability. By being transparent, IT can streamline processes, be more productive and improve customer service and support.
We are close to the needs of companies, governments and law enforcement. We believe that no one should own the data of others, for this reason everyone must return to re-appropriate their data to manage them according to their needs.
We are spending sleepless nights thinking up, testing and producing. SecFull born out of passion that is always the basis of the best products.
Making Collaboration Productive & Easy!
Collaboration is a key factor in building a small/big business because it works. People thrive in environments which free them to communicate and work together. When the company environment is focused on collaboration, team members naturally feel a part of something bigger than themselves. The best way to transition from an individual to a collaborative mindset is to equip each team member for active participation in the group dynamic.
