Face It, You Probably Don’t Know Much About Cybersecurity, Part 2

Posted: February 15, 2023

Last week, we went through why training is such a crucial part of your business’ cybersecurity process. This week we will turn our attention to some of the tools and other strategies that your organization should be using to mitigate security threats. 

Security Tools and Strategies

If training is the first step in positively securing your business, the next step would be to ensure that you have the tools in place that make this possible. For today’s businesses, there are a lot of tools that are available. Here are three:

Network Monitoring

The basic strategy of monitoring anything is adopted as a risk mitigation technique. The more actively you keep on top of any situation, the less you are likely to be surprised. In 2023, cyberattacks are mostly deployed clandestinely and the more you know about your network and infrastructure, the more likely they will remain in tip-top shape and free from outside threats. 

Endpoint Management

For many businesses, the endpoints have changed over the past decade. Once limited to workstations, today there are a litany of devices from mobile phones to unsecured Internet of Things devices that can be a way into your business’ network. With a lot of businesses supporting remote workers businesses are finding that there are far more endpoints than they once thought. Secure your endpoints, and you’ll find your organization’s cybersecurity will be stronger.

Threat Detection

With all the things you are doing to help you keep scammers out of your network, if something finally does get in, you have to know it, and have a strategy to eliminate it. Some companies that spend millions of dollars on security are taken down by a single piece of code that executes ransomware. It’s as dangerous as that. With millions of threats being thrown your business’ way each year, there’s no chance you stop them all. Threat detection and remediation will make all the other efforts worthwhile. 

To get your business to where you want it to go you need to manage its exposure to threats. To learn more, contact the professional technicians at COMPANYNAME at PHONENUMBER today.
