Digital Trust Services

“The challenge is not to adapt trust to digital, but to adapt digital to trust”.

Digital trust refers to the level of confidence that individuals, organizations and society have in the security, privacy, reliability and credibility of digital technology, as well as the governance system and the people that use it. 

The lack of digital trust can lead to a lack of adoption of digital technology, decreased productivity, lost business opportunities and value leakages. Our interventions help to ensure that digital systems and business processes will function as intended, protect information assets and users, and provide secure and reliable access to data and services.

With Afenoid’s help, organisations can trust in the integrity, transparency and accountability of digital information and in the ability of their digital systems to resist unauthorized access, human errors, and malicious attacks.

 Our service portfolio provides details of:

-how we supply capabilities you need to adopt, adapt, and optimize regulatory frameworks and industry standards focused on data privacy and data security,

Compliance and Certification Readiness Consulting: 
-We partner with our clients to ensure their good standing against myriads of standards and frameworks.

Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard 
Afenoid is a Qualified Security Assessor Company for the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard. We validate the scope of the card data environment and its compliance against the PCIDSS. We have a team of Qualified Security Assessors with decades of combined experience. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is applicable to all organizations that accept credit and debit card payments. It helps protect sensitive financial information and prevent credit card fraud. 

Management System Standards
We also help to establish, operate, and improve management system standards, MSS. When an organization systemizes how it does things, this is known as a management system. This makes sure that nothing is left out and that everyone is clear about who needs to do what, when, and how. A management system requires several essential components for it to function. These are:
  • Objectives 
  • Processes 
  • Organizational structure and resources 
  • Performance feedback

We work with Registered Certification Bodies to determine the conformity of our clients after gap remediation and corrective action have been completed.

  • Information Security Management System, ISO/IEC 27001:2022. This international management system standard  provides a framework that helps organizations to manage sensitive information, protect against threats, and ensure business continuity.
  • ISO/IEC 22301: What you do before a crisis determines how well you do in a crisis. The ability of your organization to recover from a disaster is directly related to the degree of business continuity planning that has taken place BEFORE the disaster.

  • ISO 22301 standard specifies requirements to plan, establish, implement, operate, monitor, review, maintain and continually improve a documented management system to prepare for, respond to and recover from disruptive events when they arise. We help to adopt and conform.

  • ISO 20000-1: IT Service Management (now called Service Management System, SMS) was formally accepted as an ISO standard in the year 2005. The standard reflects an industry-wide recognition of  the need to establish a system to  manage IT service delivery and support. Service Management System, SMS, requires that organizations establish a formal Plan-Do-check-Act  cycle in order to demonstrate their continual improvement in service delivery. 

    SWIFT Customer Cybersecurity Framework: SWIFT, the backbone of global financial transactions – is increasingly being targeted by cyber criminals, as the recent SWIFT  cyber hacking sprees have made abundantly clear. The Customer Security Programme (CSP), launched by SWIFT in  2016, is designed to help customers implement the practices that  are critical to help defend against, detect and recover from  cybercrime.Combating fraud is a challenge for the entire financial industry. The  threat landscape adapts and evolves daily, and both SWIFT and its  customers have to remain vigilant and proactive over the long term. While all customers are responsible for protecting their own  environments, SWIFT has established the Customer Security  Programme (CSP) to support customers in the fight against cyber-  attacks.
