CYBER CRISIS CAPABILITY
OUTSTANDING AUDIT FINDINGS
SOCIAL MEDIA RISKS
Social media might not constitute a cyberthreat but employees who ignore best practices around security are making it easy for hackers.
When employees neglect privacy settings or publicly post notes and photos, they can leave cybercriminals free to use their information to launch targeted phishing emails containing malware links.
WEAK EXCO COMMITTMENT
AWARENESS TRAINING BUDGET
Consider how the costs of prevention weigh against the costs of a breach and make your budgetary decisions with this in mind.
Cybersecurity awareness training, when done right, can both prevent many accidental Insider Threats from taking place
GOOD SECURITY RESOURCES
Part of the ongoing battle is having the right people, in the right place, at the right time. Cybersecurity requires a very specific skill set, and a workforce that's prepared to work reactively and proactively to deal with threats.
HUMAN LAYER ATTACKS
The actions and/or inactions by members of an organisation who lack security awareness can lead to various security incidents, such as providing sensitive information to phishers, installing malware, and so on.
The reason is that humans are the weakest element of the information security environment.
INCIDENT RESPONSE TEAM
The incident response team’s goal should be to coordinate and align the key resources and team members during a cyber security incident to minimise impact and restore operations as quickly as possible.
POOR MANAGEMENT SUPPORT
Security problems may not be with the products, but rather a lack of management focus on how to properly design, implement and monitor solutions.
Management should focus on how to properly design, implement, and monitor solutions. This requires an integration of people, processes, and technology.
Cybersecurity awareness training can prevent quite a few expenses related to Insider Threat investigations and incident response, as well as decrease the organisation’s overall risk.
COMPLEX IT ENVIRONMENTS
Managing cyber risks is an increasingly difficult challenge. Even as businesses generate more and more data and adopt new technologies and processes, cybercriminals are busy developing new attack strategies and more sophisticated malware.
MISSING THE BASICS
While the topic of information security is too often made out to be so complex, it can easily be broken into three cornerstones. Confidentiality, availability, and integrity are the foundational concepts of security.
Really, all of the controls that we implement are meant to protect these three cornerstones that are the basics of cybersecurity
There are various challenges regarding the development and use of cybersecurity standards for organisation. In particular, they need guidance in interpreting and implementing cybersecurity practices and adopting the standards to their specific needs.
Cybersecurity documentation as a proactive security measure.
However, many oftentimes view documentation as a passive effort that offers little protection to a company, generally an afterthought that must be addressed to appease compliance efforts.
