Is Your IT Security Paying Attention to The Correct Things?
Dedicated to security
It is of the utmost importance to protect your company from those who wish to steal your data or that of your clients, but is this goal getting too much attention? What happens if they have already entered and you are unaware of it?
To prevent intruders from entering your home, you will put up fences, secure the windows and doors, and install an alarm. You will set the alarm at night in the areas of the house you don't use, and your dog will keep an ear out as well in case the perimeter has been violated.
Why then do too many companies choose IT security measures over physical security measures like locks and fences to keep out cybercriminals?
Which of the following do you do?
- Is security software an investment?
- Making use of multiple-factor authentication?
- Educating your team to be on the lookout for phishing scams?
- Ensuring that your backup is functionally sound?
You must keep in mind that fraudsters are continuously coming up with new ways to get around security, regardless of whether you have an internal IT staff or you outsource to an IT support service. You must adopt a well-rounded strategy, with effective detection AND preventive measures offering the strongest defense against today's motivated crooks.
Here is one more statistic to consider. The average time it takes to recover after a cyberattack is 80 days. Can you afford to put an 80-day halt to operations while you recover?
