What Establishing A Good Cyber Defence Looks Like
Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) are often targeted by cybercriminals. Small businesses typically have limited resources and budgets that they can dedicate to cybersecurity, which makes them attractive targets.
Although you may not have the same level of expertise or access to sophisticated security tools as larger corporations, cybersecurity and data security issues can’t be ignored in our current modern world. Even SMEs can access the same level of protection through the use of a committed and knowledgeable IT consultancy.
When you have a company like NetEffects on your side, you can be sure that you have the IT support you need to safeguard your digital assets, and keep your business from falling victim to web attackers.
Our cybersecurity strategy is comprehensive, and consists of a number of elements that will aid your company’s online safety.
Implementing continuous monitoring and observation protocols is the first step in ensuring that your business is safe. The network is proactively monitored for any unusual or suspicious activity so that it can be stopped before it causes any harm. We do this by keeping a close eye on network traffic, as well as user activity and system logs. Early identification of any anomalies can ensure the detection of security breaches or vulnerabilities – before they can be exploited.
Don’t forget, prevention is always preferable to treatment.
Many small businesses lack the necessary skill sets to conduct proper cybersecurity. You may not have the manpower, expertise, or tools to implement proactive monitoring.
Outsourcing this to a reputable IT support service that can ensure your systems remain protected.
There are many advanced tools and technologies that help identify and classify cyber threats. Threat identification is the process of spotting threats early on before they can cause harm. Threat detection tools and technologies include the use of intrusion detectors, intrusion detection systems, and intrusion prevention systems.
Here at NetEffects, we can also implement machine learning algorithms that help analyse patterns and behaviours typically associated with the kinds of individuals who carry out cyberattacks. If these behaviour patterns are detected, we are alerted and can respond accordingly, ensuring that your digital assets and data remain secure.
Having a cybersecurity service provider on your side ensures your ability to react quickly to any detected incidents or threats.
Incident response is an important part of cybersecurity. Cyberattacks tend to occur suddenly and quickly, so a quick incident response plan is essential to reducing risk, and preventing further damage.
Swift responses involve the identification of the source of the attack and the immediate isolation of affected systems. Then, countermeasures are implemented to not only protect the system and the data, but also to track down the source of the attack. If necessary, we can also alert law enforcement quickly.
The bad news is, cyberthreats continue to evolve. But, so do cybersecurity measures!
The ultimate goal of a good cybersecurity service provider is to ensure that your security protocols are comprehensive and up-to-date with the latest developments in cybercrime.
Developing a comprehensive and effective defence strategy against the ever-evolving threat requires a cautious, careful and well-informed IT service provider. A robust defence relies on a combination of several technological solutions, adequate employee training, experience in risk assessment, and the constant development of cybersecurity policies.
As business owner’s, we know how important it is to have peace of mind. NetEffects are Gold Coast’s most trusted IT support consultancy who offer just that. We pride ourselves in our transparency and look to build lasting trust, so you can feel confident leaving it in our hands.
