With each passing day comes a new security breach headlining the news. It would seem at this rate our personal information has been compromised several times over. This begs a major question, “what can the good guys do about it?”
I believe Shrek, a notable green ogre, once said, “There’s a lot more to security than people think, security is like an onion.”
Cybersecurity Defense Mechanisms: Security is like an “onion”
A protected network should have layers of protection spanning from workstation AV to network AV, from email spam filtering to email archiving and encryption, from next-generation firewalls at the edge to URL filtering on the desktop, and more. It takes a multi-layered approach to play in this cybersecurity arena, but it’s more than just products alone. It takes best practices such as limiting VPN access to only trusted devices, requiring personal smartphones to only connect to Guest WiFi, removing unsupported devices from the environment, and ensuring the active directory is frequently audited…just to name a few. Even with these cybersecurity products and policies in place, your network can still be vulnerable to hackers!
Cybersecurity Insurance Policy: Don’t plan on if, but when you will experience a security breach
Solid security products and policies only lengthen the inevitable. So, when that security breach does occur, Streamline Technology Group has the company’s best cybersecurity insurance policy already in place. This includes having a Backup Disaster Recovery solution which duplicates all the company’s data to the cloud. This means that when a company’s data is compromised, instead of paying the ransom and experiencing downtime or closing the doors to your business, Streamline Technology Group can simply and quickly restore data from the cloud to what it looked like before the security breach, allowing the company to continue to function.
Cybersecurity for Businesses: Keep the bad guys out!
What is your business doing to remain “safe” and “secure?” Keeping the bad guys out of a network requires a team effort that includes:
- Internal cybersecurity policies
- Employee education
- Multiple security tools in place spanning the entire network
- All files are backed up on a regular basis
This is a good starting point to secure your business and information from hackers and vulnerabilities.
