  • Cyber Security
    • Computer security, cybersecurity or information technology security is the protection of computer systems and networks from information disclosure, theft of or damage to their hardware, software, or electronic data, as well as from the disruption or misdirection of the services they provide, Cyber Security encompasses the body of technologies, processes, and practices designed to protect networks, devices, programs, and data from attack, damage, or unauthorized access. Cyber security is important because government, military, corporate, financial, and medical organizations collect, process, and store unprecedented amounts of data on computers and other devices. A significant portion of that data can be sensitive information, whether that be intellectual property, financial data, personal information, or other types of data for which unauthorized access or exposure could have negative consequences. Organizations transmit sensitive data across networks and to other devices in the course of doing businesses, and cyber security describes the discipline dedicated to protecting that information and the systems used to process or store it. As the volume and sophistication of cyber-attacks grow, companies and organizations, especially those that are tasked with safeguarding information relating to national security, health, or financial records, need to take steps to protect their sensitive business and personnel information. The nation’s top intelligence officials cautioned that cyber-attacks and digital spying are the top threat to national security, eclipsing even terrorism. For effective cyber security, an organization needs to coordinate its efforts throughout its entire information system. Elements of cyber encompass:
      • Network security: The process of protecting the network from unwanted users, attacks and intrusions. Application security: Apps require constant updates and testing to ensure these programs are secure from attacks.
      • Endpoint security: Remote access is a necessary part of business but can also be a weak point for data. Endpoint security is the process of protecting remote access to a company’s network. Data security: Inside of networks and applications. Protecting company and customer information.
      • Identity management: Essentially, the process of understanding the access every individual has in an organization. Database and infrastructure security: Everything in a network involves databases and physical equipment. Protecting these devices is equally important.
      • Cloud security: Many files are in digital environments or “the cloud”. Protecting data in a 100% online environment presents many challenges.
      • Mobile security: Cell phones and tablets involve virtually every type of security challenge in and of themselves.
      • Disaster recovery/business continuity planning: In the event of a breach, natural disaster or other event data must be protected and business must go on. For this, you’ll need a plan.
      • End-user education: Users may be employees accessing the network or customers logging on to a company app. Educating good habits (password changes, 2-factor authentication, etc.) is an important part of cybersecurity.
    • The most difficult challenge in cyber security is the ever-evolving nature of security risks themselves. Traditionally, organizations and the government have focused most of their cyber security resources on perimeter security to protect only their most crucial system components and defend against known threats. Today, this approach is insufficient, as the threats advance and change more quickly than organizations can keep up with. As a result, advisory organizations promote more proactive and adaptive approaches to cyber security. To remain abreast in risk assessment a framework that recommend a shift toward continuous monitoring and real-time assessments, a data-focused approach to security as opposed to the traditional perimeter-based model.
  • Emergency Procedures
    • All employers are obligated to ensure staff are trained in workplace emergency procedures. This may include what to do in case of a fire, earthquake, or other emergency; identifying locations of emergency exits; and processes to follow to evacuate the building in the case of an emergency. Emergency Plan Development Should Include: Hazard identification and assessment. Emergency resources. Communication systems. Administration of the plan. Emergency response procedure. Communication of the procedure. Debriefing and post-traumatic stress procedure. Plus, a whole lot more. This is how Status Security can be of help.
    • Creation of the plan. Establish a training schedule. Assign responsibility for training. Coordinate plan with outside organizations. Emergency planning should begin before commencement of a project. An emergency plan template is site specific. Emergency Plan Development Should Include: Hazard identification and assessment. Emergency resources. Communication systems. Administration of the plan. Emergency response procedure. Communication of the procedure. Debriefing and post-traumatic stress procedure. Hazard Identification and Assessment. This involves a thorough review that includes but is not limited to, Materials handling, transportation, equipment or product installation, hoisting, temporary structures, materials storage and commissioning activities Environmental concerns. Consultation with the client concerning potential hazards. Proximity to traffic and public roads. Tools such as material safety data sheets to determine potential hazards from on-site materials. Hazard assessment should be an ongoing process. Asses: What can go wrong? What are the consequences? Emergency Resources, People, equipment, facilities, and materials are critical in an emergency response. You should identify which resources are available and have contingency plans to cater for deficiencies. Identify other on-site resources which include Fire extinguishers. First aid kits should be clearly marked. Spill’s containment equipment. On-site medical staff and staff trained in first aid should be included in the plan. External resources such as ambulances may have to be sourced and kept on site. Communication systems are crucial to an effective emergency response and should relay accurate information quickly. To ensure this, reliable communications equipment must be in placed strategically, procedures developed, and personnel trained. A backup system is necessary in case components like telephone lines are rendered useless by the emergency. The type and location of communication systems should be posted on the project, including Location of telephones. List of personnel with mobile phones or two-way radios. Emergency phone numbers, site address, and location should be posted beside site phones Locations of emergency phones should be clearly marked on large sites. Administration of the plan is critical for effectiveness. The person charged with this is usually the person in charge of the emergency response operation. They should ensure; that everyone clearly understands their roles and responsibilities in the emergency response plan, that emergency resources are adequate. Emergency Response Procedures are in place and can be reported by a worker on site, an outside agency, or the public. The following immediate actions are generally recommended; Stay calm, Assess the situation, Take command, Provide protection, Aid and manage, Maintain contacts, Guide emergency services. The emergency response procedure should be reviewed continually to meet changing conditions. For effectiveness, an emergency response procedure should be communicated to all personnel. The procedure should be reviewed with the owner or client, subcontractors, new workers, suppliers, and any health and safety committee. This procedure should be posted in a conspicuous location. Debriefing is crucial to review how well the plan worked and to correct any deficiencies identified. This is critical to the success of future emergency planning. An effective template must be created.
