Multiple layers of security protect your company data. A hacker looks for weaknesses or gaps in those layers. Once they find a combination of gaps that let them through all of your layers, they have successfully breached your system. A hacker seeks out companies with the greatest number of vulnerabilities and lowest number of protection layers in their data.
While a single roadblock along the way can thwart an attack, a persistent hacker will keep trying. That’s why it’s important to take a systematic approach to protect your business data by using a combination of tools including basic IT best practices.
A security framework consistently increases your business security through a process of applying industry best practices and tracking progress over time.
Whether your business has recently been hacked, or you’re wondering if your existing protection is enough to keep hackers away, there are ways to improve your company’s security today.
Whether you need to identify/protect/recover your data, or detect/respond to breaches, DataHive’s IT security experts can work with you to ensure your company data is protected. The resources you allocate to completing and repeating the process (as shown in the diagram below), the more secure your company data will become.
If your business has ever had to recover from a security incident, or if you are concerned about cybersecurity, the next step is to identify which cybersecurity risks your business might face. Based on that information, we can work with you to create a plan on how to protect your company from a cybersecurity breach.
After you have identified what business data you need to protect, the next step is to build safeguards and reinforce existing protection.
After implementing additional protection, it is essential to continually monitor the system for signs of breach attempts, successful breaches, unauthorized access or other anomalies.
As soon as you have detected an incident, it’s time to respond. But, it’s important to plan and rehearse those recovery steps ahead of time.
If you have not protected your data sufficiently and now detect a failure, it’s time to recover. But, it’s important to plan and rehearse those recovery steps well in advance.
