As companies continue to take proactive measures to protect their business using the latest IT security best practices, emerging threats are putting them to the test. Is encryption enough to protect your business? Cyber criminals are putting everyone to the test and new tactics are putting business leaders, IT departments and IT consultants to the test. There are three main focus points you must address to protect a business including endpoints, networks and data security. The true formula comes down to covering all three areas at once in building a comprehensive defence strategy against breaches and other activity from cyber criminals. Now encryption is a positive proactive IT security strategy but it is not the only aspect to focus on. Network and endpoint security need to be vital priorities also. With cyber criminals and hackers leveraging every possible vulnerability as well as industry best practices to compromise systems and steal data. How do you handle your network security risk? With proper network security in place, not only will your company experience many benefits but it will also protect you against disruptions, productivity and protection from cyber criminals. If you are part of a regulated industry such as financial, insurance, healthcare or legal, it will help your company meet mandatory regulatory compliance. It also reduces your risk of legal action from data theft. When building a plan to handle your network security risk, it should identify each risk below and what IT security measure and policy is in place to handle it. Here are some common network security threats you should address: -Viruses, worms, and Trojan horses -Spyware, Malware and adware -Zero-day attacks, also called zero-hour attacks -Hacker attacks -Denial of service attacks -Data interception and theft -Identity theft How do you handle endpoint security protection? According to IT World Canada, they reported that 41 per cent of organizations had not yet begun to use a mobile device security solution. Remember, in the era of BYOD and IoT, there are many endpoints per user within a network. This can include smartphones, tablets, and laptops which at times can be left out of standard proactive IT security strategies. You should develop a plan with your IT department or IT consultant to use an effective mobile device and application security solution. You should ensure you are also using Remote monitoring and management (RMM) software to manage and reduce threats of loss and exposure.
