Look at your employees with cybersecurity in mind
Is your company vulnerable to a cyber-attack? For many businesses, data is their most precious resource. Don’t wait for a breach to begin thinking about cybersecurity. 415 Group’s Principal of IT, David Besse, MsIT, CISSP, CISA, MCSE, explains how business owners can better protect their data:
“When it comes to cybersecurity, business owners need to understand — trust is not a security control. Having secure processes in place is essential to the health of your business.
Employees pose a potential risk to company data, whether it’s intentional or not. Over the years, we’ve seen numerous instances where a company’s data is leaked. Passwords get shared. Laptops get lost. Intellectual property gets stolen. The number one cyber threat right now is ransomware. If an employee accidently installs malicious software, with the click of a button, your company data is gone.
The first step toward increased cybersecurity is awareness. Conduct an assessment to detect your vulnerabilities, and invest in training for your staff.
At 415 Group, we help our clients craft cybersecurity policies and establish technical controls to protect their data. Our goal is to provide peace of mind, so they can focus on growing their business.”
