Cyber security management for intellectual property assets:
Malicious attacks of domain names are on the rise globally.
Domain Names are often victims of these latest digital breaches, being fraud, where criminals deceive the registrants which as a result can affect both consumers, and for companies, their employees. Breaches and such frauds are achieved by imitating the company’s name or its trademarks.
Information Security Training
Ensuring staff in an organisation are trained in an up- to-date Information Security programme annually to be aware of the latest risks to an organisation in regard to managing critical and sensitive information
Customer Compliance & Communications
Ensuring clients are kept in the loop in regard to understanding and knowing for “how to fix or escalate” an issue or incident. In this way we can ensure they are advised in becoming aware of what to look out for on a regular basis. This could be achieved in regular communications or reminders of security risk awareness.

– Reputational damage or loss
– Financial damage or loss
– Customer damage or loss
– Contract or franchise damage or loss
– Regulatory damage or loss

Companies, service providers, suppliers, customers or employees can become subject to fraud through a domain name that may already exist. In such situations, the liability of the company and its managers could be engaged in serious lawsuits of damage, by consumers, employees, shareholders and/or ultimately by regulatory authorities.
