System security concerns the security steps you take to ensure your servers and resources are safe from downtime, interference, or potential malicious intrusion. More specifically, NIST stands for the National Institute of Standards and Technology, which is a US government agency responsible for developing and publishing standards and guidelines related to information security and cybersecurity. defines it as “the protection of information systems against unauthorized access to or modification of information, whether in storage, processing, or transit, and against the denial of service to authorized users, including those measures necessary to detect, document, and counter such threats.”
System security is vitally important, since your systems house the data that your employees, customers, and other stakeholders have entrusted you to protect. Your systems allow your users access to your data, and your servers host and store all of your data. Both need strong defenses against potential intrusions, hacks, and other malicious actions.
SPIO helps you monitor systems, server reports, and security logs, restrict access to your systems and servers, and assess their environments for physical risks (e.g. temperature, fire, and stable power supply). If you are using Cloud-based hosting services (such as AWS or Azure), SPIO will help you ensure that your boundaries and endpoints are protected, and that all data in transit between your systems, servers, networks, and applications is protected both in transit and at rest.
