Keys to Warding off 2020’s Cyberthreats

Keys to Warding off 2020’s Cyberthreats

There are a lot of cyberthreats out there… too many for the modern business to avoid them all. While employing best practices may greatly reduce your chances of being breached and having data stolen from your network, they can also help you determine how a breach occurred and how your data was stolen. While there is no such thing as perfect cybersecurity, there are a few strategies you can lean on to strengthen yours.

Understand the Value of Your Assets

Your data is valuable—but do you know how valuable it really is, and which would cause the most harm if breached? Prioritizing protections based on this knowledge is how the IT experts do it to mitigate as much harm as possible to a business and its reputation.

Ask yourself: if you were a hacker, what would you steal from you?

Work with Proactivity in Mind

In order to sufficiently protect your network, you need to start early by creating a comprehensive response plan that could conceivably protect your operations from the worst-case circumstances. In doing so, you are preparing yourself to react to cyberattacks and other events as they come with strategies designed to minimize and mitigate the problem.

Invest Time in Employee Training

Who would you rather have protecting your network: a few trained people amongst your team, or everyone following best practices to reduce your vulnerability? With everyone on the same page as far as what they should be doing is concerned, cyberthreats can be made half as severe and limited to half as often. Teaching your team to spot different warning signs of a cyberattack can help keep your business from being breached.

Continue Innovating

As cyberthreats and other attacks are always being innovated upon and improved, you need to match these efforts with your cybersecurity by remaining up-to-speed on the various threats and the strategies to counter them. Knowing how to respond to a cyberattack is a good thing, being able to prevent these attacks in the first place to protect your business’ assets is better.

Cybersecurity isn’t a quick and easy fix, but BNMC can help make it a little quicker and easier for your organization. To learn more about the strategies and solutions we can offer, give us a call at 978-482-2020.
