Human Error

As we become more reliant on technology and digitisation, we become more exposed to the threat of a cyberattack and whilst businesses are wisely investing in cyber security technologies, human error -intentional or otherwise – remains one of the leading causes of cyber breaches in businesses and organisations.

Cyber criminals have become more and more sophisticated over recent years yet in truth their success is based on their ability to exploit human error to gain access to networks and critical business data. Human error relates to any mistakes made by employees, authorised users, contractors or those in the supply chain when accessing business networks through computer systems or any type of mobile device.

Your company may be at risk!

3 Steps to a Pre-emptive Strategy​

Employee training where all employees are educated on cybersecurity best practices, such as using strong passwords, avoiding suspicious emails, not sharing sensitive information and the importance of overall vigilance and attention to detail.

Implementing security protocols such as two-factor authentication will add an extra layer of security, requiring users to provide two forms of identification before gaining access to a system. Encryption can protect sensitive information by converting it into a code that can only be deciphered with a decryption key.

Regular software updates and patching can help defend against human error by fixing vulnerabilities in software thereby reducing the overall threat area.

LoughTec currently provides cyber support to a number of businesses and organisations in a variety of industries throughout Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. We support enterprise scale organisations with £500m turnover and small companies with a more regional focus, all through the implementation of our LoughTec Security Operations Centre (SOC)

Security Operations Centre

How the LoughTec SOC can protect your business?

The LoughTec SOC is responsible for detecting, analysing and responding to security incidents in real time delivered through software, technology and (human) security analysts. In addition to 24/7 monitoring and management, the SOC helps organisations maintain
security policies and procedures, deliver training and provides regular reports on our customers security posture.

Here’s how it works:

Step 1.

No obligation, no cost initial consultation to review your current security protocols, enhanced potential requirements and your main concerns.

Step 2.

Deploy the LoughTec System Security Scan for a deep dive on your current cyber posture as well as your threat risk score and analysis.

Step 3.

Review all findings and create our joint cyber security action plan to mitigate the potential risks.

Step 4.

Implement the required tailored cyber improvement plan and resolution actions for your business.

Step 5.

Ongoing LoughTec account management updates with additional training and support tools and plans available.

Our advice to every business is that you need better visibility of your security posture and an understanding of the implications to your business of a data breach, malware or ransomware or any current threat.

Remember cyber threat is a real and constant – there is a good chance that you have already been hacked. If not yet, you definitely will be. It’s important to know that your network is being monitored 24/7/365 – just like you would for your property or plant.

Cyber protection is an investment, not an expense – the LoughTec SOC can protect your most valuable business assets from as little as from as little as £4/day.
