Top 7 Questions for Security and your Business (with Video)

Cyber Crime is on the rise.

Today, business owners are challenged to be in the know when it comes to security and IT leadership decisions. Without this knowledge, the tasks to maintain a secure workforce grow increasingly more complex.

It is not the staff’s responsibility to understand all the specifics of most technologies. However, it is in your organization’s best interest to educate on how to access critical and highly sensitive information.

The 7 Security Questions Every Organization Should Ask:

  1. Have you performed a risk minded audit?
  2. Are there any state or federal regulations your firm must follow?
  3. What are your immediate priorities for securing your business data?
  4. What is your disaster recovery plan?
  5. What are you doing to educate your staff on security?
  6. What have you invested in to monitor machines accessing your data?
  7. What have you invested in to monitor inbound networking traffic?

In this presentation, we dive deeper into why these questions are important and how to implement them in your business.

Consideration

An un-unified agreement between IT, auditors, security, and leadership is a common but major problem within organizations. It’s a dangerous vulnerability. These departments should have processes in place that complement each other seamlessly and automatically. Of course, getting to this point immediately is unrealistic, but there needs to be a mutual understanding of the end goal. At the very least, there needs to be a realistic protection plan with a universally accepted methodology for implementing the process.

“We know that technology has pitfalls. And when it doesn’t work quite right, the consequences can be severe. Just imagine what can happen if an automated traffic light flashes green rather than red, if a wing flap on a plane goes up rather than down, if a railroad track switches and sends the train right rather than left.”  – SEC Chair Mary Schapiro
