The threats that our business systems face seem to change on a daily basis. However, not enough organizations are invested in solutions that will beef up security to protect from the ill will of cybercriminals. What should you be doing to enhance your security?
Most of the security breaches involve deceiving an individual into infecting a system with a bug that allows the attacker free access to all the data in a system. Therefore, it makes sense that a top-notch security protocol would involve educating everyone who has access to the system. The education involves knowing what a phishing scam looks like and the questions that should be asked before clicking, to limit the risk involved with importing anything into the system.
Anomaly detection is important as this will help to identify more quickly when something has gotten through your firewall or was perhaps inadvertently allowed in by an employee. The faster a breach is detected, the better chance you have at reducing any damage done.
It’s difficult to reduce risk if you don’t have full visibility. The best security plans will focus on visibility at the very beginning, bringing in sensors tied to log consolidation, but the sensors also monitor activities that would be considered anomalous. Putting a person in the lead for visibility efforts can be a huge benefit in terms of being proactive rather than reactive when it comes to breaches.
Every Organization Faces Different Challenges
All security strategies are and should be different, as each organization will have different systems and a unique set of challenges. Knowing where to invest is often an issue, which is why it pays to consult with a professional in this area.
One universal security protocol, regardless of how big or small your organization is, involves privilege access management. It’s imperative to protect your users and their credentials. From top executives down to the newest hire in an entry-level position, everyone’s credentials need to be protected. However, a bigger focus is often placed on those who have access to the most privileged information.
