Providers of SaaS offerings, mobile apps, online marketplaces and other digital solutions find themselves in a rat race to meet emerging consumer needs. Speed and efficiency are the keywords, while cybersecurity is often less so among start-ups and scale-ups. But sooner or later, customers will ask questions on the security of their data, especially larger organisations. We make sure you know how to respond and inspire trust.
Cybersecurity for digital services
Peace of mind as a dealbreaker
Cybercriminals are wreaking havoc with increasingly aggressive and tech-savvy methods. The result: data breaches are on the rise – and it’s not just about financial data. Well aware of the risks, organisations turn to digital services providers who adhere to strict cybersecurity requirements, such as the upcoming NIS 2.0 EU Directive. No trust, no game. The only way to avoid losing customers and attract new ones is with secure-by-design services.
“It takes 20 years to build a reputation but only a few minutes of cyber-incident to ruin it.”
Stephane Nappo, global CISO of the year 2018
Developers hold the keys
Today, over 80% of security breaches are due to human factors. In other words, the importance of cyberliteracy in your team can hardly be overestimated. The good news: it’s more about culture and collaboration than about technical solutions. That’s why developers play such a crucial role. Since they often operate in small teams with diverse tasks and without dedicated security specialists, we have worked out an offering to help them start with application security and DevSecOps.
Good to know: our programmes are also useful for operations, support, sales and delivery teams who need to communicate the cybersecurity measures to customers.
