A strong security posture takes more than having the right
defenses in place, you also need to establish solid plans to ensure you react to any breach in the right way.
It has never been easier for cybercriminals to infect your business with malwareor ransomware. A vast array of malware tools can be bought on the dark web, complete with helpdesks for hackers, making the barrier to entry low. Most hackers will sit on your network for days, weeks or even months, gathering intelligence to infiltrate your systems and then try to exfiltrate data undetected.
While prevention is better than cure, it’s not always possible. The smart move is to take what action you can to guard against intrusion, but also to employ intelligent real-time defenses, and to craft detailed action plans and procedures to handle any incidents that do arise. These best practices will help you reduce the risk of a data breach occurring in the first place, but also reduce the impact and damage if the worst does happen.
