We have created this cyber security checklist to help you assess the cyber security measures within your organisation.
Cyber security goes hand-in-hand with GDPR as it concerns the protection of personal data from loss, theft, or any kind of unauthorised access. (You may also find it useful to download our GDPR checklist). It’s an ongoing project with no simple shortcuts. Do you have the ability to avoid a security breach? This checklist takes you through 10 key questions to help you take a proactive approach to cyber security.
The checklist can be used, printed out, and given to the person(s) responsible for assessing cyber security measures in your workplace.
Upon downloading this free resource, you'll be asked some questions to help you assess your cyber security measures. Including, but not limited to:
- Do you regularly review your cyber security policies and procedures? If not, set a date at least every 6 months to ensure that they’re still effective and up-to-date.
- Have you reviewed your data backup procedures and retention/deletion procedures?
- Do you have network & internet security measures in place? (e.g. VPN, firewalls)
- Have you checked that email security is in place and that staff understand how to recognise suspicious emails?
Disclaimer - this checklist is not a definitive list and cyber security responsibilities/duties vary depending on the type and size of businesses. This checklist is to be used as rough guidance only. iHASCO assumes no responsibility for errors or omissions in the contents of this document.
