Cybercriminals are constantly looking for ways to quickly gain material or non-material benefits. Nowadays, any organization that has attractive resources, such as capital or valuable data, can be the victim of an attack. The most frequent negative effects of a hacker attack include loss of information (about customers, partners, know-how, scans of documents, confidential data, company secrets, etc.), devastation of IT systems or a blocked corporate website.
In addition to damage to the organization's image or loss of reputation, organizations often suffer financial losses, which may lead to bankruptcy. From 25 May 2018, the occurrence of such critical situations may involve financial penalties - up to 20 million euros or 4% of the global annual turnover of a company.. The sanction results from the negligence of data protection obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Therefore, always be prepared to repel a potential hacker attack and do not let anyone interfere in your resources.
Increasingly popular solutions in the so-called cloud effectively make data centres more flexible and revolutionize business operations. However, there are many concerns about their usage because of the ways information is stored. They are most often found in distributed databases located on the service provider's external servers. It is difficult or impossible to control them.
Thanks to cooperation with Sagiton, you can use all the potential offered by the cloud in the form of data multiplication data on servers, scalability, optimization of network traffic and resistance to server failures without worrying about the security level of your data and systems.
Take control over who has access to which data, as well as when and where, by implementing solutions based on identity management and data access (Identity and Access Management, IAM). By planning and then implementing a security strategy based on the IAM solution, you will be able to centrally manage the users: their activation, authentication, roles, authorizations or access to resources. This significantly reduces obstacles acquiring users, and leads to an exchange of identities between many applications (the so-called Federated Identity).
Implemented IAM solutions will allow you to dynamically create dedicated security policies that take into account multi-level authentication and use current user databases stored in LDAP/AD class systems, databases and external systems using standards such as OpenID, OAuth2.0, SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) or UMA (User Managed Access). Manage user accounts in a convenient way with nothing remaining unnoticed.
A convenient application is one that does not require users to be authenticated multiple times. You can increase the comfort of your customers while maintaining a high level of security of the platform and applications thanks to the use of solutions like Single Sign On (SSO) and Federated Identity. The ability to transfer a user's identity between applications and the use of federated login will increase the likelihood of using your software.
In addition, when you give the opportunity to log into your platform by using data from channels such as Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Xing, you increase the user's convenience and the likelihood of creating an account in your system. Additionally, thanks to the availability of the central authentication mechanism (SSO), you will allow your users to log in once, no matter how many of your applications they intend to use. By doing this, you will increase the flexibility in providing and customizing solutions for customers, improve the convenience of their usage, speed up the development process and reduce the risk of unauthorized access.
Users are always very annoyed when they need to change passwords and remember them over and over again. You can save them the trouble trouble by introducing additional mechanisms to protect sensitive information. Gain confidence about a high level of security, as well as the convenience offered to users through multi-level authentication.
You will be able to verify the person not only with the standard and easy to capture login or password, but mainly through such elements as fingerprints, retina scans, Time-based One Time Passwords valid for a short time and delivered by SMS/token, or physical keys (e.g. Yubikey). Thanks to this approach, you can give your user not only freedom, but also a guarantee that the data will not fall into unauthorized hands.
From May 2018, General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for organizations which collect and store personal data in the European Union will become effective. The IT systems that we create will be adapted to the requirements of GDPR, and full compliance verification will be carried out by our partner - Lemlock.
Thanks to this, you can be sure that the solutions created for you will adequately protect your personal data using mechanisms such as pseudonymisation or data minimization, as well as take into account the requirements of GDPR, such as privacy through convention, data portability, right of access or right to be forgotten. The compatibility of your IT systems with GDPR is confirmed by a verification certificate (GDPR Verified), thanks to which your clients will be convinced that their data are in good hands.
Ensure complete security of user data by using digital security tools. If you want to consciously manage information, and thus reduce the likelihood of theft of personal data or identity loss, apply the pseudonymisation process to your business activities. It involves using methods such as symmetric key encryption, using the hash function or tokenization. Thanks to this, in a reversible way you will replace one attribute with another and effectively complicate the identification of a natural person.
When your intention is to prevent a specific user from being extracted, choose anonymization. Anonymization allows you to quickly delete selected identifiers (e.g. names, surnames, identity numbers, dates of birth), which results in the termination of personal data processing and the possibility of transferring data for analytical purposes. Bet on the conscious and responsible management of information by selecting data which bring you closer to achieving your goal (Data minimization). Minimize risk and reduce costs by retaining only what is essential and necessary for your business.
Currently, we all face situations in which we have to give our consent to be able to do something online. Considering the amount of such activities performed by your users and their consents within one day, there is a high risk of information confusion. This happens most often when data is aggregated from various systems with different privacy policies and requires different types of consent.
There will be no information chaos when you apply a Sagiton module adapted to your business, which, combined with your IT systems, will allow for consent management. The module provides the possibility of orderly administration of user consent and supervision of their statuses. The consent management system guarantees to give your consumers basic rights related to GDPR, such as the right to information, to transfer data, to object or to be forgotten. Provide your users with the choice and control over how their personal data are used, and gain clear information and compatibility with the applicable law.
Cybercriminals are getting smarter and relentlessly look for vulnerabilities. You can always be one step ahead of cybercriminals and stop them from interfering with your systems or gaining valuable data. This may happen if your idea is implemented with a high level of security in mind from the very beginning.
Your project will be created and then verified by our partner Lemlock. Then, after obtaining the results from the conducted penetration tests and security audit, we will introduce appropriate security mechanisms. The solution provided by us will meet all standards applicable at the time of testing and the security requirements of modern IT systems, which will be confirmed by the Lemlock compliance certificate.
