How to Protect Your Organization Against Data Breaches?

Shield Your Business from Data Breaches
  1. Keep your software and systems up-to-date with the latest security patches and updates. Continuous evolution and development of your organization’s security framework is necessary to keep pace with the evolving cyber threat landscape.
  2. Backup all your company data in a safe external hard drive or a system separated from your existing network. Make sure that you have a reliable offline storage and restoration option.
  3. Conduct periodic Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing (VAPT) to identify any weakness or vulnerability in your organization’s IT infrastructure. By identifying these vulnerabilities and patching them immediately, you can mitigate the risk of suffering a cyber attack.
  4. Make sure that all your third-party vendors are strictly complying with all the privacy laws and security protocols. Increasing third-party access procedures, technology and training is essential to reduce the threat posed by a third-party vendor.
  5. Generate cyber security awareness amongst employees. Utilize innovative cyber attack simulation tools like ThreatCop to educate employees about prevalent cyber threats. Form a strong first line of defence against malicious attacks by training your staff in the basics of cyber security.
