March Madness of Cybersecurity: Part 1
As a small or medium-sized business owner, you may not have the same level of resources as large corporations. However, that doesn’t mean you should overlook the importance of protecting your business from cyber threats.
Identifying the most critical aspects of your business that need protection and focusing your resources on those areas is a start, but there’s one component that can protect the business as a whole: your team.
The “MVP” or Most Valuable Player mindset puts your employees at the forefront of defense.
We can help you to make your entire team a roster of MVPs. We’ll perform a security risk assessment to identify gaps or any risks. This will review your business’s digital assets, including customer data, financial information, and intellectual property. We will identify which of these assets are critical to your business’s success and could cause the most damage if they were compromised.
Next, we’ll implement measures to protect those critical assets. This will include using strong passwords, multi-factor authentication, and encryption to secure your data. We will also implement our ongoing cybersecurity training program. This will help your employees recognize and avoid potential threats like phishing emails or malware.
Then we’ll create a plan in place for responding to a cyber-attack. This will include clear protocols for reporting and responding to security incidents, and make sure all employees are aware of the steps they should take in the event of an attack.
We’ll regularly review and update your cybersecurity measures as new threats emerge. By taking a proactive approach to cybersecurity and focusing your resources on protecting your most valuable assets, you can help reduce the risk of a damaging cyber-attack on your SMB.
