Moving business transactions and operations online gave enormous flexibility and countless opportunities to many companies. However, it ultimately came with increased exposure to cyberthreats, and this aspect cannot be overlooked even for a day.
The benefits of security measures spread far beyond protecting data. Nowadays, it can mean the survival of any organization after a security incident. Microsoft identified three levels of actions based on urgency that are indispensable in a cybersecurity plan.
Phase one: immediate actions
Procedures that should be implemented within the next 24 to 48 hours in any company. Steps include enabling multifactor authentication, defining emergency access accounts, patching systems with known exploited vulnerabilities and ensuring that all the alerts sent by cloud provider and national CERT (Computer Emergency Response Team) are acted upon.
Phase two: extended action plan
Once your company has implemented the measures above, over the following days, focus on other actions to further reduce security risks. Steps include raising the awareness of your employees, randomizing the local admin passwords, securing and managing systems with up-to-date patching, implementing antimalware and workload protection tools, increasing monitoring and preparing your databases for Disaster Recovery.
Phase three: security in the long term
Important measures that should be investigated and prioritized according to your company’s assessment. The list contains advanced protection against phishing attacks, applying least privilege access, using endpoint/server-based technology to reduce the attack surface. Verifying your cyber incident response plans and ensuring your Business Continuity Plans are up to date are also crucial.
The power of tailor-made solutions
The main steps might be similar for any company, but the level of cyber maturity and readiness often requires different approaches. That’s why it’s worth examining where your organization is starting with a thorough assessment. Then it should be followed by determining the exact steps required specially for your company. To understand the challenges of your business environment, in-depth knowledge and industry experience is required.
