Businesses of all sectors and sizes use digital technologies to store confidential information, from employees’ personal credentials to customers’ credit card numbers—and that’s just the beginning. Unfortunately, handling sensitive data always poses a security risk, since business owners and their employees are responsible for protecting it from leaks and breaches. What’s more, the tools and expertise needed to safeguard this information can be both expensive and difficult to implement, leaving many organizations wondering where to begin.
Luckily, a professional Cybersecurity Assessment can provide a helpful starting point by outlining a detailed picture of your business’s security posture. These evaluations highlight your organization’s key strengths and vulnerabilities, so you know exactly where to focus your time and resources to achieve optimal security, as well as how to equip your employees to recognize and respond to cyber threats.
Of course, as more technology companies continue to add cybersecurity to their list of services, it’s important to know exactly what to look for in a professional Security Assessment. The CarefreeIT Total Protection Plan begins with a comprehensive Cybersecurity Assessment that evaluates every aspect of your business’s digital infrastructure, including network, firewall, software, policies, information, and physical security reports. It further recommends the technologies and procedures needed to address current vulnerabilities, as well as to protect your business from future threats.
As new cyber threats continue to emerge with each passing day, along with increasingly stringent legal, financial, and reputational ramifications for businesses that do not adhere to up-to-date security regulations, it has never been more pressing for organizations to work closely with certified cybersecurity professionals. Simply put, in our digitized and interconnected corporate climate, operating without a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy, is a risk that no business can afford to take.
Next in the CarefreeIT Cybersecurity Blog Series, we will take a look at what happens after your Cybersecurity Assessment is completed.
