Data should be the key to making more informed, strategic cybersecurity decisions — and ensuring you are spending your security dollars effectively. To get the most out of your increasingly limited cyber security resources and meet or surpass industry benchmarks, you need visibility into the relative performance of your security program — and insight into the cyber risk present across your ecosystem. Your policies should be in place and up to date before a data breach. Your mindset set should be when, not if we get breached. The process needed to recover from a breach should be practiced daily, weekly, and monthly.
Most organizations lack the resources needed to maintain a robust cyber security compliance process. They either lack the financial backings or the human resources it takes to implement a robust cyber security system that will keep their assets safe. We can consult and evaluate your organization on what is needed to implement your cyber security processes and a robust system.
What is good cyber security hygiene?
Cyber hygiene is compared to personal hygiene.
Much like, an individual engages in certain personal hygiene practices to maintain good health and well-being, cyber hygiene practices can keep data safe and well-protected. In turn, this aids in maintaining properly functioning devices by protecting them from outside attacks, such as malware, which can hinder the functionality and performance of the devices. Cyber hygiene relates to the practices and precautions users take intending to keep sensitive data organized, safe, and secure from theft and outside attacks.
