    Data Security Posture Management (DSPM) 

    When you can see the Data, you can defend the Data. Mitigate risk of exfiltration, simplify compliance, and reduce risk while maximising potential with Data Security Everywhere.

The 3 Stages of Data Security Everywhere

Data at Rest
Minimising risk starts with visibility to understand what data you have where - on-premises or in the cloud.

Data Classification
Develop greater accuracy and efficiency in classifying data with the help of Generative AI and Large Language Models (LLMs).

Data in Motion
Automatically adjust policies based on user behaviour to adapt in real-time to emerging risks with Risk-Adaptive DLP.

What are some of the top cybersecurity threats for 2023?

Here are some of the top cybersecurity threats organisations are facing in 2023. 

Social Engineering
Any network is hackable if an employee can be duped into sharing access.

Third-Party Exposure
Vendors, clients, and app integrations with poor security can provide access to an otherwise well-protected network.

Configuration Mistakes
Your cybersecurity investments are only as strong as they are configured correctly.

Human Activated Risk
User education and visibility for IT is essential to ensure those with network access and those handling sensitive data are maintaining cyber best practices.


Hackers are targeting back-ups and using extortion more and more to push receiving the ransom payment from their victims.

Mobile Devices

Every mobile device is a gateway to your network and sensitive business data.

Lack of resource and expertise

Human-led cyber attacks require human-led threat hunting. Unfortunately, skilled threat hunters are few and far between. 

Internet of Things (IoT)
Smart technology users may not realise that any IoT device can be hacked to obtain network access. Securing your network starts with understanding what's on it.

Is there any obligation when opting for a free cybersecurity service by Spear Shield?

No there isn't! The team will just use that as an opportunity for us to work together on a project and prove the value we can provide you as a future strategic partner.
