Whether you’re a large organisation, a Small to Medium Enterprise (SME) or a business individual, it’s become evident in recent years that all are equally vulnerable to cyber attacks. This can be to obtain sensitive user data or to hijack your systems to launch an attack elsewhere.
Increased Cyber Security is vital in establishing a secure business environment; it requires following a comprehensive framework designed by the IT industry to secure all Endpoints, which includes a gateway firewall, Secure internet access, Email message hygiene, and security of the WIFI access points.
A thorough Network Security Assessment is required to secure an organisation’s IT infrastructure and review the current state and security policies against the Common Vulnerability Scoring System. Carrying out a vulnerability scan on the network will detect weaknesses that could threaten company data.
A penetration test from outside the network will help discover any weakness when connecting to the network from outside, helping reduce the chance of cyber attacks and attaining the required level of Data Security.
Active Cyber Defence is a proactive approach to defending against cyber threats and attacks; it aims to disrupt, detect, and mitigate cyber threats in real-time, making it more difficult for adversaries to succeed.
Unlike traditional cyber security strategies focusing primarily on passive measures (firewalls, antivirus software, and intrusion detection systems), active cyber defence involves actively engaging with cyber threats, threat actors, and malicious activities.
Many organisations are becoming a victim of phishing and scam emails; proper email domain security with the above DNS settings are crucial to avoid being at the receiving end.
Setting up an internet gateway firewall and local antimalware with a host firewall for PC or laptop and maintaining robust antispam for email would create a secure communication channel.
Using SSL/TLS security on every remote connection, such as VPN or browsing internet, encrypted communication between web browsers, servers or any websites provides added security.
