Threat Detection and Incident Response
A cyber attack can be fatal for any business. It is not just the big corporations that should be concerned. In fact, it is actually small and medium sized businesses that are the most likely to face an attack and the consequences are dire for these entities.
Up to 60 percent of small to medium sized businesses are forced to shut down permanently after a data breach. That is why every organization should have a response plan in place in case of a breach or attack.
HAVE A RESPONSE PLAN
Mid-Market Business Detection
There is no doubt that your company should be vigilantly trying to protect against would be attacks but even if you are doing everything you can to prevent an attack, you still need to be prepared if your network is breached. Just one misstep by an employee could expose your entire network.
On average, 56 percent of companies that are breached do not discover the breach for months and companies that suffer an attack, such as a ransomware attack, will on average be down for at least two weeks.
Incident response planning should start with a cyber risk and resilience review. Knowing where you are must vulnerable makes it easier to identify a breach when it happens. You then want to create a playbook of protocols and procedures for quickly addressing the fallout of a breach. This can include automatic data backups, automated responses that purge infected systems, quarantine parts of your network that may be compromised and restoring your network to a safe state.
