"There are several components of effective advanced threat protection..."

  • Perform a security audit to identify vulnerabilities in your organization's IT infrastructure and conduct a vulnerability assessment or penetration test at least once each year.
  • Layer protection and implement network-wide security solutions-like two-factor authentication.
  • Perform regular, if not daily, backups. Small to mid-size businesses that work with critical client information should perform daily backups. Look into storing data on servers at a secure off-site storage facility instead of locally/onsite.
  • Create a log of past security events and input the data into a security information and event management (SIEM) system. This system will give a holistic view of the entire organization's security.
  • Educate staff by having ongoing or regular security education and cybersecurity training courses so that they will be able to identify suspicious emails, attachments and other cyber threats.
  • Avoid using unsecure third-party file-sharing tools. They can easily be hacked and provide direct access to valuable information and data.
