That is, your company must be continually protected from cyber attack. Think video versus photograph.
The first step in a cyber security program is to have an assessment done to determine where your organization is in protecting its information technology. That is the photograph. A snapshot in time.
But know what’s wrong doesn’t keep you safe. The next step is to implement changes that are determined by that assessment. But even this is only halfway to being protected. Because this is just another static position.
The most important aspect of your cyber security program is continuous monitoring and updating. On-going security education and awareness training for employees, network traffic analysis and filtering to ensure bad actors are not accessing your systems, dark web monitoring to ensure your users credentials are not for sale in the cyber underworld, and continuous updates, patching and replacement for outdated software.
