Service Providers

Everyone knows what an ISP is, right? It's the Internet Service Provider that helps you connect the router at your home or office to the Internet.

They're kind of like a "middle man" between you and the Internet, and they're only necessary because connecting directly to the Internet without help from an ISP would be a technically difficult and expensive project for most people.

Well, there's a different kind of ISP that most people haven't heard about. These are "Intranet Service Providers". What intranet service providers can do for you is similar in a lot of ways to what an Internet service provider does.

Just like an Internet Service Provider makes it easier and less expensive to access the Internet, your intranet service provider makes it easier and less expensive to have an intranet.

Who needs an intranet? Any organization with more than a handful of employees or members who work with documents and information should seriously consider having an intranet system. What does an intranet do? It actually has a lot of functions, but its primary purpose is to make it easy for you to share documents and information internally in a much more secure environment.

Why internal information security is important

Historically security in IT has been focused on external threats to the organization. There were a few notable exceptions such as in the military, in certain scientific fields, and in finance.

The problem was they didn't share their reasoning with people working in different industries to their own. As a result, people working in those other industries kind of took the view "We're not the military so we don't have any secrets worth stealing!"

It's only in very recent times that the wider community has begun to truly understand the real value of information. Criminals came to the realization first, and the rest of the community has been playing catch-up ever since, always one step behind.

Information is precious. It can be used against you in so many different ways. If it harms you directly, that's bad. If it only harms your customers directly, it's still bad because that eventually has to turn back around and harm you indirectly one way or another.

What the military and the banks understood so long ago is that the biggest danger is not from the outside, but from the inside. Internal threats comprise more than 80% of all cybercrime incidents.

Now, this does not mean we should be paranoid about employees. Most of the people responsible for introducing a cybercrime incident into the workplace had no knowledge that they were doing this. It's simply that they don't have the security knowledge necessary to prevent themselves from becoming unwitting accomplices to a cybercrime.

How an intranet helps reduce the risk of an information leak

Intranets throw up an additional layer of "stop and think". They also isolate confidential internal documents and data from your externally facing web traffic.

Properly classifying your documents and data, and applying some simple firewall rules, can even automatically prevent confidential information being unintentionally sent outside of the confines of the intranet.
