Protecting Your Business and Ensuring Continuity with Security Services
In today’s rapidly evolving digital landscape, financial businesses face an ever-increasing number of cyber threats. At Samlink, we always start with the risks before applying necessary controls to protect our clients. Our security requirements are driven by both contractual agreements with our clients and their regulatory frameworks, and also through our corporate wide cybersecurity and privacy standard. Our goal is to prevent unnecessary interruptions or incidents that could compromise the security of our clients’ data.
In the event of a cyber incident, our team is ready to respond quickly to minimize the impact on your business. Our back-end services ensure that all functions are hosted with high availability, security, and reliability, and are maintained to meet any future expectations.
At every step, we prioritize the right risk-based level of security to give you peace of mind.
Operational Security: Protecting Information with a Five-Step Approach
Operational Security is about the day-to-day security measures that must be in place and followed up to protect sensitive information. At Samlink, we are working with a five-step approach related to operational security activities: identify, protect, detect, respond, and recover.
Protecting Workstations and Servers with Security Features and Functions
We take proactive steps to secure our users’ workstations with a mix of security features and functions designed to reduce risks, e.g., malicious code, intruders etc. The network is monitored, and only approved traffic is allowed into or out of the network. Our servers are made secure by applying different techniques that limit access from any unauthorized sources.
Firewalls and Denial-of-Service Protection
We use firewalls to filter traffic from the internet to our internal network and vice versa. We also protect our network against denial-of-service attacks, where attackers try to drown the servers with access attempts. This is achieved through proactive monitoring and preventative measures designed to keep your data safe.
Regular Scanning and Vulnerability Management
Scanning of the entire environment is done regularly to identify vulnerabilities that can impact Samlink and our clients. We lean towards a risk-based vulnerability management approach that puts focus on the vulnerabilities that can be exploited by an attacker. This proactive approach ensures that we can stay ahead of potential threats and quickly address any security concerns that may arise. Our team works with you to identify critical business functions and systems, and to develop contingency plans that enable you to recover quickly in the event of an incident.
“In the end clients measure us on our resilience against cyber threats and our capability to quickly restore services again.”
