Business Security (Cybersecurity) Explained

Business security (cybersecurity) is not just about technology and managing your ICT. 

There are 5 other areas where you need to concentrate.

Risk Management

Where are your Business Risks and how will you reduce them? 

If you do not know the risks to your crown jewels (data, IP, systems and people) then it is very hard to know what needs to be protected.

Without the what, the how is difficult.

Your Systems

Your business is unique which means that you have unique solutions.

How you run your business is just as important as the way that you protect it.

Making changes has to be tempered with how it will work in your business

Your people

The best security relies on aware teams and staff.

Your staff are the vanguard of your security. They see it all but need to know what they are seeing. 

They have to be made aware of what the bad guys are doing.

Your Technology

Put a framework around your business using the right technology.

Technology is not the answer.  It is part of the solution but not the whole solution.

It has to be implemented correctly, monitored and managed .

Resilience

If it will happen then it will happen to you, be prepared to respond as well as track.

The ability to get back to business as fast as possible is critical in today's world.

To be resilient you have to be proactive.

To be able to report you need to know what happened.

Improvement

Changes and improvement to business are vital to keep ahead of your rivals.

Technology changes, the way you do business changes. 

You have to have a way to plug in new requirements without changing the security paradigm.
