Manage your risk with a “Prevention-Detection-Correction” Security Strategy
As businesses become more dependent on technology, leveraging Cloud, SaaS and offsite digital assets they are at greater risk from cyberattacks and data breaches due to human or system error. Analysts at Juniper Research project that data breaches will cost businesses more than $2 trillion globally by 2019, an increase of nearly 400 percent.
With the uptick in cybercrime and the recent explosion of debilitating cyberattacks, such as the 1100% increase in the number of Ransomware attacks, businesses cannot afford to just rely upon a good premise-based firewall to secure their infrastructure and data. SECURITY is about layers and people and it IS NOT A COMMODITY. Businesses must do increasingly more to secure their and their clients’ data if they are to stay ahead of threats and effectively manage risk. Furthermore, WHEN (rather than if) a business is hacked it needs a team of people lined up ready for incident response, containment, forensic analysis, remediation and to quickly put their business continuity DR solution in place.
USA Voice & Data works with a broad range of leading security providers to help our business clients assess and then minimize their security risks with a range of managed network and security solutions. With the current 0% unemployment rate for Cybersecurity professionals, we know that highly qualified security resources are hard for any but the very largest enterprise to afford or retain, and so we also help our clients identify and line up teams of qualified external professional Cybersecurity resources, in advance, to help them through a breach just in case one should one occur.
Many businesses make the mistake of focusing their security spend more on prevention (and their firewalls) than on detection (and devices or software to identify suspicious behavior), when in fact the reverse should be true, as after all, a firewall is only as good as the last known attack profile. We encourage and can assist businesses of every size define and implement a well thought out and multi-faceted “Prevention-Detection-Correction” Security Strategy. We also recommend every business carries Cybersecurity insurance coverage to help them handle the costs of a possible breach.
