Tips for Creating an Effective Cyber Security Strategy

Organizations are starting to connect more of their operational processes to the cyberinfrastructure they have in place. As this happens, it’s essential they also consider cybersecurity. Unfortunately, if a cyber security strategy isn’t in place, an organization may not be able to protect its assets, reputation, customers, intellectual property, or employees.

There are some business owners who believe that they are already protected from potential cyber-attacks because they have sophisticated technical solutions in place. Unfortunately, this is just one part of having an effective defense in place.
Keep reading for some helpful tips on how to create an effective cyber security strategy for your business.

Understand the Cyber Security Risks Your Organization is Susceptible To

The threat of cyber security risks has become more and more complex and it’s necessary for organizations to understand what it means for their processes specifically. By understanding this, the company will also be able to determine the level of acceptable risk they have along with what areas they need to make an investment in to improve overall cybersecurity.

In some cases, hiring a third-party service provider to help with the risk assessment is beneficial in figuring out how to identify the impact certain issues will have on a business or organization.

Integrate Across Physical Security, Information Assurance, Technical Security, and Personnel

If you want to create an effective cyber security strategy, you need to work across the security measures that are in place. It’s also possible to make smarter interventions in key areas of risk to help boost total cybersecurity.

Professionals can bring together world-class capabilities in a range of important disciplines, including things like dynamic defense, insider threat, process control security, SCADA, and network security, with the ability to work across organizational functions and cyber defenses to create or to strengthen an effective and integrated cyber security strategy.

Establish Protective Monitoring to Help Prevent and/or Deter “Insider” Threat

Protective monitoring services provides you with a coherent view of all cyber-related activities across the organization while supporting a positive culture to help deter any type of counter-productivity behavior. It will also help your business address any threat that is posed by an insider who may facilitate or perpetrate an attack.

Create a Breach Mitigation Plan

Even when you have all the best protections and defenses in place, breaches may still occur. It’s a good idea to have a plan in place to take action after a breach has occurred. While this can be challenging having this type of plan in place is a must.

When it comes to your cyber security for your business and the risks that your business may be exposed to, in many cases, hiring someone (like a cyber risk consulting firm) to help with this will be the best course of action. Put time and effort into finding a quality company for these services to ensure the best protections are put in place and that they will help to reduce the cybersecurity issues a business is facing. Purchasing cyber insurance may also be a smart move, which will help ensure a business can recover if a breach occurs.
