Below are a few excerpts from the article, “What is Cyber Security? 6 Steps to Support Profitability and Prevent Chaos.”
Educate Staff
“In 2019, 90 percent of data breaches resulted from human error. That suggests that employees represent the weakest link in the security chain. However, it also suggests that a staff educated in security awareness can prove an essential line of defense. Consequently, any cyber security strategy must include targeted security awareness training.”
Secure All Endpoints
Endpoint security involves ensuring that all devices have the proper security controls and that they follow security protocols. It also includes continual monitoring of all devices to detect potential vulnerabilities and identify suspicious behavior. Security administrators should be able to view and manage user permissions for all endpoints from a central location.”
Ensure Email Protection
Email protection begins with email filters to block spam and phishing attempts. Additionally, carefully constructed electronic communications policies can automate the enforcement of email rules that prevent the improper sharing of sensitive information. ePolicies also address email encryption and automate essential retention policies.”
Strengthen Cloud Security
“While the cloud brings many critical advantages, such as accessibility and scalability, it also introduces significant security concerns. Organizations must adjust security practices to address the unique risks inherent to computing in the cloud.”
