There are hundreds of IT security services and products, which can be overwhelming. It’s nearly impossible to tell if purchasing security products reduces risk or wastes money on things you don’t need. One solution is to take on IT security services with experts to help. Unfortunately, this can add huge costs without any greater clarity.
The problem is when companies do nothing and leave their infrastructure vulnerable to cyberattacks. Organisations already know they must do something, but what can they do? The key is that organisations need to know what risks they should address and how to mitigate them cost-effectively and only then appoint a service to manage to assist.
Know what security risks you’re facing
Firstly you need to know what risks exist. We can provide a list of the IT security risks present in most organisations. For example, phishing emails and ransomware.
What risks apply to your organisation?
Next, narrow that list down to those that apply to your organisation. Now you have something to aim at, and you can measure the starting benchmark and track progress throughout each year. We can help you create a security plan tailored to your business.
Mitigate those risks with IT security services
Next, take each risk and reduce it as much as possible. Some are easier to mitigate than others. For example, installing an excellent antivirus title is simple, but training your staff to spot and avoid scams requires time and resources.
Furthermore, some software solutions can almost eliminate some IT security risks; others require services, some require both, and everything needs monitoring and managing. Having a long term strategy is essential to make IT security evolve as the threats develop.
Every organisation needs a good IT security service provider to ensure that they are ahead of the cyber attackers. Nonetheless, the service will fail unless they train the decision-makers to understand the risks and what the service is doing to reduce them. That’s why we work with decision-makers together to achieve the same goal.
