Cybersecurity Essentials

You can’t increase your cybersecurity posture without first having a sound foundation. Here are some cybersecurity essentials, including standard terminology.

Ways to Avoid a Breach 

Preventing a breach entirely is always the goal. That’s why the following articles focus on ways to fortify your organization and protect your information. From email best practices to workplace security, these articles focus on active measures you can take to be cyber-secure.  

Recovering from a Breach 

Sometimes, something as simple as clicking the wrong link or letting the wrong person into your building can result in a breach. While this situation is never ideal, a quick, targeted response can mitigate damage and restore information. The following articles tackle ways to respond to cybersecurity breaches 

Business Continuity 

Business continuity plans can protect your business after all kinds of disruptions, including cybersecurity attacks. By having a timeline and knowing what to prioritize, you can save your business time and money while better protecting your assets.   

Cyber Insurance 

Cyber insurance can’t stop a breach, but it can help protect assets in the unfortunate event that one transpires. There’s no standardized version of cyber insurance, so make sure you’re familiar with the different options and what they provide.  

Compliance Issues and Cybersecurity 

Different fields have different compliance concerns, but ultimately, cybersecurity culture can help your business stay safe. From HIPPA to PCI DSS, here’s what you need to know about staying compliant.

Cybersecurity Maturity 

A truly safe company is constantly reevaluating its security posture. These companies understand that cybersecurity is a leadership issue, and they make cybersecurity a part of their culture.

The survivors at the end of a horror movie usually know a thing or two about fighting monsters. Sure, some of them last thanks to dumb luck or plot armor, but the majority need to learn how to kill a zombie or exorcise a ghost. Similarly, you can’t stop a cybersecurity threat without being well-informed. So, consider this your monster manual to fighting cybersecurity attacks.
