An affordable low touch solution

Repeated cyber breaches into organisations demonstrate the need for a relook at how data is managed, and cybersecurity improved. Cyber threats continue to grow at an alarming rate and represent one of the most serious operational and financial risks facing business (Williams, Manheke 2010). The national and economic security of all nations depends on the reliable functioning of critical infrastructure in the face of such threats. Beyond critical infrastructure, the economic vitality of countries and organisations depends on the sustainable operation of organisations of all types, particularly business (Day, 2000). From the research, there are four main areas that need to be addressed to build a strong cyber defence for the organisation. They include Assessment, Endpoint protection, Education and Insurance.

Cyber Education

Failing to educate staff cyber threats will leave SMEs vulnerable.

Failing to educate staff on hacking and cyber threats will leave SMEs vulnerable to simple and mostly avoidable threats. It follows that over a third of cyber claims in 2016 may have been avoided if cyber education and training was put in place for staff. CyberProtect 360 has an education platform that delivers training in 10-15-minute bite-sized modules, these modules raise the level of cyber awareness of staff and support the development of another layer of cyber defence.

  • Reducing human error.
  • Legal responsibilities.
  • Empowering staff.
  • Legal responsibilities.
  • Phishing Simulations.
  • Dark Web breach exposure.
  • Personal responsibility for data protection.

Here are a few questions worth knowing about

1Why do I need cybersecurity?
The increased reliance on information based systems and infrastructure make society and economies more vulnerable to cyber attacks. Who cares? How does that impact my business? Both the volume and sophistication of rapidly evolving cyber threats pose enormous risk to all business, from the smallest business run from home to the largest enterprise spread around the globe. Most businesses, including yours, is not prepared for a cyber attack and the impact it will have. Building a pro-active, pre-breach cyber defense is mandatory, if you you want to stay in business post breach.
2I have anti-virus software, isn't that enough?
Traditional anti-virus software misses around 40% of malware attacks that are caught by next gen malware platforms using behaviour based approaches. It only takes one malware attack to succeed to put you in a whole world of pain.
3How at risk is my business from a cyber attack?
Here is some sobering statistics:

  • Almost 50 percent of small businesses have experienced a cyber attack
  • More than 70 percent of attacks target small businesses
  • As much as 60 percent of hacked small and medium-sized businesses go out of business after six months

At some point you will be attacked, simple. Defending against that attack is imperative, responding to the attack is critical. That response will either minimise and contain the impact or exponentially increase it.
4Full cybersecurty is too expensive, how can I afford it?
It will surprise you how affordable a holistic cybersecurity program is. CIS have developed a strong layered cyber defense program that includes insurance. Talk to us to find out more.
5I don't have the skills or resources to do proper cybersecurity, where does that leave me?
You don't want a company that comes in, installs some software and disappears. A company claiming to specialise in one field without offering additional products or support services can't provide the protection you need.
6I'm only a small business, what does a hacker want from me?
Cyberattacks put your money, data and IT equipment at risk. If a hacker gains access to your network, they could do a lot of damage with what they find, such as:

  1. Access to client lists
  2. Customer credit card information
  3. Your company's banking details
  4. Your pricing structure
  5. Product designs
  6. Staff and client personal information
  7. Expansion plans
  8. Manufacturing processes

These attacks don't just put your company at risk, either. Hackers may use their access to your network as a stepping stone into the networks of other companies whose supply chains you're part of.
7What are the real impacts of an attack?
A cyberattack can drastically impact your business. In fact, 60% of small businesses that fall victim to an attack shut down within six months after the breach. While that may be the most devastating result of the attack, there are other consequences that your business could experience, including the following:

  • Financial losses from theft of banking information
  • Financial losses from disruption of business
  • High costs to rid your network of threats
  • Damage to your reputation after telling customers their information was compromised
8So what can I do?
That's where CIS can really help you. The key cyber areas that need addressing are:

  • Perform a risk assessment
  • Educate your people with cyber awareness
  • Protect your endpoints and data
  • Get cyber insurance that is affordable and works for you
