Finding qualified talent in the field of IT security is getting harder as multinational corporations are attracting most of them. Cybersecurity risks are increasing, and cyber threats are getting more and more sophisticated, while many companies can afford only average IT security to protect their networks and essential data.
Nearly 240 million unique malicious and potentially unwanted objects were roaming the digital space last year, and 260,000 unique users were victims of ransomware attacks. The average business needs a high-level IT consultant if they are to avoid loss of business-critical data and protect their networks against unwanted infiltration. You need a detailed IT strategy that rests on three pillars.
William Ives Consulting helps you go the last mile from an average IT strategy to an all-encompassing IT security plan that covers both your current needs and plans for the long-term.
By implementing an IT security strategy that involves people, processes and technology, a business becomes able to protect itself against both targeted and accidental attacks as well as eliminating human errors that often result in massive IT breaches. Your employees should be aware of the risks associated with cyber threats and know their role in preventing such risks from materializing. A robust IT security strategy involves constant training and familiarization with the latest cyber threats.
Your organization needs to have documented processes clearly defining the procedures to follow in order to avoid IT incidents. A high-level IT strategy is always evolving to take into account the latest cybersecurity threats and reviewing all procedures and processes accordingly.
The main tool to mitigate IT security risks is the deployment of technical controls and preventive measures. Choosing and adopting the right cybersecurity technology is challenging task as it involves controls as varied as antivirus software, firewalls, hardware defenses, backup systems, access control systems, and a complex IT security strategy to manage them all.
