Managing Your Cyber Security, Detection & Response

Cyber Attacks on businesses and organisations has become inevitable in the current commercial arena especially with the prevailing cyber landscape. Some experts believe that to a large extent most hacking attacks can be avoided if organisations train staff and protect their enterprises against cyber-attacks.

Managing detection and your response to IT systems potential attacks has become a must for non-technical senior management who are outside the IT department.

One of the very necessary responses is to engage and train all staff with Cyber security training and ensure that the training is effective and interesting for all workers. Most cyber-attacks happen by criminals and hackers using phishing emails that look very authentic. However proper training can significantly reduce this and other threats.

Data has become a new currency that can be contaminated, stolen, traded, and sold without the organisation realising that it has been attacked for some weeks, months and sometimes even longer.  

A few things that will make an important difference to your business’s cyber security are as follows:

  • Have a cybersecurity Audit performed by security focusesed consultants who are experts at protecting your data. 
  • Your business must have secure hardware which is password protected. Also ensure that you are made aware if laptops get stolen while employees work from home as then sensitive data can be used or sold to other part of your market.
  • Use cyber security insurance because cybercriminals are becoming too sophisticated these days, they are coming up with ways to break into the most advanced cyber defenses. Therefore, even the most security-conscious businesses get vulnerable to cyber-attacks. Cyber insurance cover can come to your rescue. If in case, an attack occurs, most of the policies not only cover the financial loss caused from data theft but also help in co-paying the costs involved in recovering data and that includes paying to data recovery experts and for buying new hardware as well as software.
  • Most important is the cyber security training of your management and staff. This must be an on-going process which engages well with all staff members and has the latest happening in the cyber landscape, so that they can help mitigate cyber risks with ease. This includes educating them about risks associated with using unsecured networks to access work info and avoiding unsecured websites and sharing sensitive data on social media. Restricting them from password sharing will also help.
