Implement Robust Processes

Cyber attacks are unsurprising surprises: You know you will be attacked, but don’t know when, where, or how. You must therefore have tested processes in place before you need them. A comprehensive cybersecurity plan will focus on prevention, resolution, and restitution.  Having and implementing a cybersecurity plan is important even if you lack the resources to hire a dedicated cybersecurity staff.  Once you understand your risk it is time to create and implement a cybersecurity plan to protect your privacy and data security, secure your company’s network, defend against online scams and fraud, and prepare for incidence response and reporting. You also need established protocols, processes, and playbooks so that your people can get right to work when attacks come.
