Is your business cyber ready from new and evolving threats? Don’t get caught out by lack of strategy. Read our 12-step readiness guide.

Have A Cyber Readiness Plan

Ad1

With headlines full of mentions of cyberattacks and security breach victims, it’s time to take risks seriously. The success and survival of your business will be determined by your ability to overcome security threats or breaches. You need a cyber readiness plan that includes prevention, continuity and recovery strategies.

To start building your cyber readiness plan, contact us today.

Establish Strict Policies and Procedures

Ad2

Policies and procedures regulate business operations and are essential for defining the standards and expectations of employee behavior and actions in the workplace. While establishing strict, security-focused protocols is necessary, a system of validation and enforcement is equally important. After all, rules without consequences are merely suggestions.

Let us help you develop security-driven policies and procedures for your business.

Keep Updates Up to Date

Ad 3

While updates often introduce new or enhanced features into your apps, programs and systems, they also install security and performance fixes known as patches. Undiscovered defects or flaws can leave your systems exposed. Hackers will exploit any vulnerability or security gap they find. Keeping your systems updated is vital for keeping your business cyber ready.

Let us automate and optimise your system updates and patches. Contact us now to get started.

Force Authentication

Ad 4

One-level security is no longer enough. Even the most robust passwords are vulnerable to theft or exposure. Requiring more than one method to authenticate user identity or access permissions can reduce or eliminate the risk of stolen or unauthorised credentials being utilised.

Get cyber ready with identity and access management today.

Back Up Everything!

5

Data is the lifeblood of every business. Unfortunately, the risks and threats to the protection, privacy and usability of that data are endless. Follow the 3-2-1 method for backups: a minimum of three unique copies of your data, two available locally and one off-site or in the cloud. Ensure to test your backups often for functionality and integrity.

Contact us today to protect and secure your data from cyberthreats.

Don’t Neglect Compliance

6

Maintaining regulatory compliance is mandatory for many organisations. While navigating and satisfying the obligations can be complicated and stressful, achieving compliance is a critical component of having a cyber-ready business. Security and privacy are integral elements of compliance.

Let us take the stress out of compliance for your business. Contact us today.

Knowledge Is Power

7

Continuous network intelligence is a critical component of cyber readiness. It’s extremely important to have on-demand insights of suspicious changes, potentially harmful misconfigurations or any other malicious activities occurring on your network. Promptly detect and remove threats before they cause damage.

Security Awareness Training

8

Users are the weakest link in security, given a lack of education and experience. Instituting a security awareness training program for every member of your staff significantly reduces the probability of user-related errors and exposure.

Start developing a security-first culture with user training by sending us a message.

Combat the Password Crisis

9

Most hacking-related breaches are linked to weak, reused or stolen passwords as user credentials remain a top vulnerability for businesses. Balance convenience and security by monitoring the dark web for exposed credentials, implementing multifactor authentication and streamlining control of password management.

Find out how you can overcome the password crisis in your business.

Don’t Skip the Insurance

10

Increasing risks of data breaches and ransomware, regardless of size or industry, have prompted many businesses to adopt cyber-risk insurance to protect themselves from catastrophic loss. Investing in a cyber insurance policy could save your business should you be the next victim.

Contact us to find out how we can help you meet cyber insurance policy requirements.

Reduce Supply Chain Vulnerabilities

11

Many businesses have experienced cyber-related issues in their supply chain. As a part of your cyber readiness plan, you must deploy protocols to evaluate and monitor the security of your supplier networks and third-party vendors.

Contact us to learn more about keeping third-party incidents from impacting your business.

Deploy a Multi-layer Security Strategy

12

Security is asymmetrical. Where businesses must plan, prepare and defend against every threat scenario, cybercriminals only need to find a single weakness or hole in your defenses to carry out their malicious plans. Protect your data and your business by deploying multiple security strategies together as one.

Let us help you develop and apply a defense-in-depth approach.
