Information security includes all information, regardless of format and medium, such as protection of intangible assets, IT and cyber security. Business-critical information must be accurate, confidential, and accessible to relevant stakeholders in order to meet the criteria for information security.
Estimates show that 70–85 % of corporate assets are digital. In a world where data and information are stored digitally, the ability to manage, control and secure it becomes increasingly important. The organizations that manage their digital information best will outperform comparable businesses, everything else equal.
In other words, organizations that work strategically with information security can gain advantages such as increased competitiveness, fewer disruptions to socially critical services or higher patient safety. In addition, the working environment will be both better and safer.
But security comes at a cost, so it is important to have both a relevant digital strategy and access to the right tools and skills. To achieve that, you need to identify what is worth protecting and what type of information and data that is business critical. Over the years, CANEA has helped various types of organizations within a range of industries to secure their mission-critical information.
