Cyber threats are increasing at an alarming rate, which means it is only a matter of time before your business will have to investigate some sort of an attack. With more than 60% of businesses closing their doors within six months of a breach, threat knowledge and proactive strategies are vital to reducing your risk.
Here are two key factors in developing an effective cybersecurity program for 2018.
- Threat Analysis
Start by gathering data from your systems, as well as threat-intelligence reports, correlating them for analysis and then applying that information toward remediation and prevention tactics. While this is a necessary, but tedious task, there are technology solutions that can handle this process all in one place, and in real time.
- Mitigation Strategies
Did you know data breaches can go 6 to 8 months without being detected? Discovering risks hidden in past months’ activities or pattern recognition is just part of how continuous monitoring can help you quickly identify any system or application anomalies to remediate before they are exploited. It is also important to incorporate cyber-defense plans that extend beyond your in-house network to mobile, cloud and the Internet of Things (IoT) to effectively mitigate the risk of cyber attacks.
