Cyber-security trends

Strategies for defeating cyber-risk

  • Recent trends in IT security are seeing both businesses and cyber-criminals becoming more advanced.
  • One major internal threat is when organisations have a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy that allows their employees to use their own devices at work.
  • In response, businesses must design data security strategies which consider the probability of future threats, instead of focusing on current operations.
  • Because cybercrime trends are often similar across the same industry, sharing information can allow a more effective response.

Key elements of an effective IT security program checklist

  • Ensure effective governance is in place, which is aligned with the entire organisation and is reviewed and updated for best practices.
  • Take a risk-based approach to cover the enterprise’s operations and supply chain security, rather than simply relying on the vendor’s word.
  • Endorse the support of senior management to ensure the company’s security best practices are followed consistently.
  • Create employee awareness of potential security threats through regular training.

According to IT security trends, employee security raises concern

Defending your organisation from cyber criminals requires much more than simply having the right security technology. The human factor is just as important: every organisation needs a security culture that embraces and informs all employees.

How to protect your company data from employee mistakes

Businesses are becoming increasingly savvy in preventing external cyber attacks on their data, however such measures have not translated to preventing internal data mistakes. It’s a problem that affects all corporations, large or small.
