Do you suffer from Cybersecurity Anxiety?

 

Step one in treating this new age condition is conducting a Cybersecurity Assessment.

  • PCI DSS, HIPAA, SOC 1, SOC 2
  • GDPR, ISO 27001/2, NIST 800, DFS-500

Cyber Risk Management: 
  • Rapid Incident Response and Digital Forensics 
  • Business Resilience 
  • Risk/ Gap Assessment 
  • Industry Control Systems/ SCADA Assessment 
  • Threat Modeling / IT Risk Assessment 

Technology Consulting: 
  • Solutions Definition, Selection, Design & Tuning 
  • Vulnerability and Penetration Testing 
  • Security Architecture and Design 
  • Training & Awareness 

 

Benefits of  UHY Cybersecurity assessment:
  • Your Cybersecurity vulnerabilities will be clearly identified

  • The implications of the exposures will be clarified  

  • Methods of dealing with the vulnerabilities will be presented

  • Follow-up “Action Plans” will be presented  

 

We can help to identify and protect your critical assets. 

 

 

 

5 steps to reduce exposure to Cyberattacks:

 

 1.  Be prepared for an attack. 
  • Ensure that you have the technical resources to detect, contain and respond to an attack.
  • Check that you have offline daily backups of data applications. 
  • Prepare an “Incident Response Plan”, which identifies what steps to take in the event of a Cyberattack: who to contact and what procedures to follow.

 2.  Perform a security assessment to evaluate, detect, respond, and recover.
 

 3.  Conduct awareness training and phishing simulations for all employees on identifying malicious emails and phishing attacks. 

       The attacks methods look very realistic and employees need to practice identifying malicious emails and need to know what action to take.

 
 4.  Review Cybersecurity insurance coverage. Being aware that many standard insurance plans generally do not provide full coverage.
 
 5.  Ensure that all your application updates are installed.

UHY Victor Response to the Spread of COVID-19

UHY Victor is taking action to maintain the health and welfare of our team, our clients and support communal efforts to respond to the coronavirus pandemic.

UHY Victor will remain open during this difficult period and client services will continue. We have implemented contingency plans which allow us to continue to operate as we all deal with the spreading pandemic.

In light of the present situation we have introduced the following measures:

  • Our staff and procedures have been structured so that our team can work remotely.
  • Our IT infrastructure and data are protected by cutting edge security systems.
  • To the extent possible, client meetings will be held through web meetings and other remote solutions.
  • Employees who experience the primary symptoms such as fever, cough and respiratory difficulties will work remotely until cleared.
  • Internally, we emphasize the importance of “social distancing”, and have enhanced our internal cleaning and disinfecting protocols.

UHY Victor will continue to monitor the changing situation and, will respond proactively as this major health challenge evolves.

We encourage all to stay informed and to visit the Public Health Agency of Canada COVID-19 site, and follow the guidelines set out by the government of Canada:

  • Now and always during cold and flu season, stay home if you are sick. Encourage those you know are sick to stay home until they no longer have symptoms.
  • Since respiratory viruses, such as the one that causes COVID-19, are spread through contact, change how you greet one another. Instead of a handshake, a kiss or a hug, a friendly wave or elbow bump is less likely to expose you to respiratory viruses.
  • Practice frequent hand hygiene and coughing and sneezing etiquette. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces, such as toys and door handles.
