In the digital age, safeguarding your SME goes beyond traditional security measures. Often small businesses don’t believe they need to take the same cybersecurity measures as larger businesses, however this is simply not true. Understanding the intricacies of an individual's online presence and associations is crucial for protecting your organisation from potential threats.
This blog provides an introduction to our Individual Internet Discovery service, which is designed to review and analyse the online footprint of individuals in detail.
What is our Individual Internet Discovery service?
Individual Internet Discovery delves into various online platforms, including social media, news posts, online forums, and public records. This in-depth examination allows for the creation of a detailed internet profile, providing valuable insights into potential risks and threats associated with an individual.
By scrutinising these sources, our service aims to uncover hidden connections and assess the level of threat they may pose to your SME. You can then action this information where appropriate to protect your business.
Tailored to your business needs
No two businesses are alike, and neither should their security strategies be. The Individual Internet Discovery process is customised to align with the specific objectives, concerns, and desired outcomes of yourbusiness. Before initiating the discovery, a detailed client brief captures and verifies your individual requirements, ensuring a tailored approach that meets the unique needs of your organisation.
What does the report contain?
A critical component of Individual Internet Discovery is the comprehensive reporting it provides. The report includes citations, links, associations, and a thorough threat assessment based on the initial client brief. This transparency enables your organisation to make informed decisions based on verified information, empowering you to take proactive measures to protect yourorganisation.
How can this report be used?
Whilst the results of the Individual Internet Discovery can be used in different ways, one of its primary uses is supporting pre-employment checks. Understanding a potential employee's online history can not only help you to ensure that they are the right fit for your company culture, but if you work within an industry where handling sensitive data is part of day-to-day operations, then the report can be used as a proactive measure that can help to prevent future complications.
Moreover, this service proves invaluable in managing potential threats to high-profile individuals within an organisation or their families. By understanding the digital landscape surrounding key figures, SMEs can implement pre-emptive security measures that can save you a lot of headaches further down the line.
Privacy and ethical considerations
Our Individual Internet Discovery service is conducted with the utmost respect for privacy laws and ethical standards. The aim is not to infringe on personal boundaries but to provide a safeguard against external threats that may arise from the digital realm.
