Cybersecurity platform allows firms to provide proof of compliance

ThreatAware – the cybersecurity monitoring and compliance platform – has added a new reporting feature which provides businesses with a full audit trail on any aspect of their IT security.

It allows users to create a full report on the status of their cybersecurity and record any actions they have taken – whether they are preparing for an ISO audit and want to show they are complying with security standards, to demonstrate their response to a cyberattack or breach or simply to provide additional evidence of their efforts to safeguard clients’ data.

ThreatAware is the only platform that allows both IT professionals and directors with no specialist IT skills to monitor their cybersecurity. The easy-to-use dashboard allows them to check the status of their hardware and software, and compliance with policies and procedures.

Jon Abbott, co-founder of ThreatAware, explains:

“Cybersecurity is now a major challenge for business. A data breach or cyber attack may not only severely damage the company’s reputation but that of its directors too and they can be held personally liable.

“ThreatAware not only safeguards against threats but also provides auditable evidence that the board has taken all reasonable steps to ensure compliance and prevent breaches.”

ThreatAware provides management and IT complete visibility, alerting them to threats and making it clear what actions need to be taken and by whom. It also comes complete with a framework to help companies to comply with the relevant standards – whether that is GDPR, Cyber Essentials or ISO/IEC 27001:2005 – and it can be tailored for FCA-regulated firms.
