Virtually every week I have companies come to me for help beefing up their security after a ransomware attack or a data breach. They weren’t prepared. The lost data, time, and productivity cost their company money. The cost to their reputation and customer confidence is incalculable.
You cannot rest on your laurels when it comes to security. What has worked in the past may not be effective now. The threat is constant, ongoing, and ever-evolving. No one can ever tell you your network is 100% safe; if they do, frankly, they’re lying to you.
At Connection, our approach to security starts with the assumption that you will be attacked. We’ve developed three steps to help you better protect your data and your organization:
- Protect: Identify and understand your risk and options available to bring it to an acceptable level.
- Detect: Implement a solution that will recognize when a security event or breach has occurred.
- React: Establish a security program prepared to lock the breach down and limit damage for the when—not if—you are attacked.
And then—this is important—you’ve got to rinse and repeat. This is not a stagnant endeavor. Your security strategy not only involves programs and protocols, but training and people. You must revisit and re-examine your plans regularly.
Our team can help you figure out what makes sense for your organization. There is no one size fits all solution. Let us help!
