How migrating to the cloud helped this global retailer

A data breach poses a significant financial and reputational risk to media companies. To avoid becoming the next headline, organisations need to thoroughly understand their risks.

Once media companies understand those risks, they can take measures to continuously protect against emerging threats. Collaboration throughout the organization, as well as with extended partners, will help to enforce strong security policies, controls and remediate unauthorized activities within the organisation.

Medialab Group is one of the fastest-growing independent agencies in the UK. As an award-winning partner for growth Medialab consistently delivers transformative outcomes for organisations they work with. Following a Cyber Security attack, the company was reeling from the impact of the security breach and had lost confidence in its systems and processes.

The challenge

The Medialab Group has worked hard to build a reputation as a trusted, full-service media agency, but following a cyber security attack in 2017, that reputation was at risk.
Despite having been ISO 27001 certified, the company was reeling from the impact of the security breach and had lost confidence in its systems and processes. It was critical for the company to:

  • Mitigate the financial and reputation risk from the security breach
  • Get guidance for ISO 27001 re-certification
  • Carry out an organisation-wide risk assessment of security policies and procedures
  • Risk management of InfoSec by augmenting the skills of the in-house team
  • Implement security training and awareness to safeguard highly confidential client data

The Medialab Group relies on its IT systems to be able to deliver work to clients quickly, manage complex reporting and analysis, and of course run all of its back-office tasks, such as finance and HR
