Sound cyber security solutions must says expert

MANAMA, February 15, 2021

Implementation of sound data security practices is key to guarding against possible security breaches in the current and post Covid-19 era, says a cyber security expert.
“There is an urgent need for companies to evaluate their data security status to bring about greater consumer trust in committing their data to the cyberspace. It is vital that companies protect their information on a timely basis utilising security operations center and security orchestration, automation and response and other cybersecurity protocols,” says Cyber Security Director of Hilal Computers Shijas Mohidheen.
Cyber security laws are taking root in the GCC and bringing with them fines and penalties for companies and owners deemed to be in breach of protecting the data of customers and employees. 
“The Internet is an ocean of data solicited and unsolicited.  Businesses often find themselves drowning in a sea of data making it impossible for them to keep track of what type of data and to what extent the data is being collected,” adds Mohidheen.  “This highlights the need to select a trusted service provider to audit the security measures and compliance regulations that a business has in place.”
Hilal Computers is constantly working on new projects and turnkey solutions that enable organisations to maintain stability and security. This commitment is exemplified in the company’s investment to build a Networks Operations Centre (NOC) and a Security Operations Centre (SOC). The SOC and NOC both offer 24/7 monitoring and protection services, he says.
According to Hilal Computers experts, Cybersecurity is not only related to protecting the data of a business, it also encompasses data management and organisation. When businesses start complying with data security practices, they can come across valuable insights and statistics that can help them evaluate the performance of the business and take measures that help the business succeed.
“Insights into the cybersecurity practices of businesses will yield financial benefits. The analytics can also be used to provide a snapshot on the promotion and marketing and businesses are then able to kill two birds with the same stone,“ concludes Mohidheen. – TradeArabia News Service
