There are quite a number of protocols you’ll want to institute to most reliably secure your business. These include proactive alert solutions, antivirus, and anti-malware software, monitoring that is 24/7, institution and management of the newest firewall solutions, and consultation/support on-site.
Regular Updates and Patches
You need to patch your operations as regularly as possible. The North Korean ransomware worm “WannaCry” didn’t affect businesses that instituted patches when the possibility of a threat became known. If you can automate patching, that’s even better.
Requisite BDR Solutions
Backup and data recovery (BDR) is absolutely integral. It’s impossible to properly prepare for all cyber attacks. Even the best security still has one inescapable vulnerability— human imperfection. You need a BDR solution in place as a catch-all against the worst-case scenario.
Incident Response Plans and Testing
Dovetailing from BDR, you need an IRP (Incident Response Plan) in place, and you need to test it regularly.
