The rise in cyber-crime is unprecedented and shows no sign of slowing down as cyber criminals find new and inventive ways to steal data and extort money. In the first half of 2017, the WannaCry ransomware crypto worm attack infected 400,000 machines in 150 countries. The second half of the same year witnessed the enormous privacy breach by Cambridge Analytica using data from the social networking giant, Facebook.
These incidents have highlighted the fact that organizations tend to overlook the necessary protection or fortification required for managing data through their systems. Organizational cybersecurity neglect is adding to the continually increasing magnitude of such security breaches and colossal damages around the globe.
“Information security has been neglected or underinvested in; hence it is becoming increasingly difficult for organizations to deal with,” states Robert O’Brien, CEO of MetaCompliance. “Our mission is to help organizations keep their staff safe online, secure their digital assets and help protect their reputation and brand.” To do this, the company has developed one of the most advanced eLearning suites for cybersecurity in the current market and has helped over 600 organisations around the world stay cyber secure and compliant.
A blended methodology of “engage, educate and protect” is implemented at MetaCompliance to achieve an upper hand against advancing information security threats
A blended methodology of “engage, educate and protect” is implemented at MetaCompliance to achieve an upper hand against the advancing range of information security threats.
The London-based company offers a multilingual and user-friendly product range including Phishing and Ransomware, eLearning, Policy Management, GDPR, and Incident Management. The organization has created a state of the art product range that directly addresses the specific challenges that arise from cyber threats and corporate governance.
“Instead of purchasing several different tools to protect each system, MetaCompliance provides one integrated platform that covers it all,” states O’Brien. This feature of MetaCompliance sets it apart in the market as companies recognize it as a “one-stop shop” to cater for all their cyber security and compliance needs.
MetaCompliance products arehosted under a single management platform (MyCompliance) on the cloud and can be purchased as a full suite or on a modular basis.
“Despite a huge amount of money being spent on traditional security systems, organizations still find themselves vulnerable to outside attack. This shows that staff is the key element that need to be strengthened and helped. Therefore, a greater focus needs to be placed on the correct tools to assist staff to provide a greater defence against cyber threats.”
In the last year, MetaCompliance has significantly increased its turnover, doubled its workforce and strengthened its product portfolio.
“As challengers in the industry, we consistently create the best offering in cyber security and compliance, and by having a clear focus on our customers, we will continue to develop innovative and cost-effective products that reinforce our local and global offering.”
