In today’s digitally driven world, where advanced technology is ubiquitous, cybersecurity has become an indispensable aspect for any business. It is imperative to have stringent cyber measures in place to safeguard against cyber threats that can cause irreparable damage to sensitive data and personally identifiable information. With cybercrime becoming one of the biggest threats, organizations and governments globally are focusing on cyber risk management to mitigate monetary and reputational risks.
Making rigorous, fact-based decisions about a company’s most critical cyber risks is essential to achieve cyber resilience. Therefore, it is crucial for businesses to prioritize cybersecurity and take proactive measures to protect their web-connected systems from cyber-attacks.
Maintaining the integrity of business operations is another compelling reason for having robust cybersecurity measures in place. Cybersecurity breaches can result in network downtime, data loss, and corruption, leading to a false view of performance and wasted time, energy, and resources. Therefore, investing in robust cybersecurity infrastructure is essential for protecting valuable assets, ensuring the longevity and sustainability of the business, and maintaining business integrity.
By running the organization with integrity, businesses can reinforce the trust of customers, employees, suppliers, investors, and regulators in the business. In the United States, the Cybersecurity, and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has identified 16 critical infrastructure sectors that are the most important to protect because a breach could have a debilitating effect on national security, the economy, public health, and safety, or more.
To effectively address the new risks and challenges introduced by remote work and cloud computing, organizations must implement zero-trust cybersecurity measures that account for these changes. This includes creating secure remote work policies that ensure every employee’s access to company data is protected. Small and mid-size businesses, may not prioritize cybersecurity or cybersecurity compliance, making it easier for hackers to exploit their vulnerabilities and execute damaging, costly cyberattacks. Therefore, it is crucial to implement cybersecurity controls that mitigate or transfer cybersecurity risks, such as technical controls like passwords and access control lists, or physical controls.
Enforcing multi-factor authentication, using password managers, and using internal VPN are some of the best practices for remote work security.
Thankfully, cybersecurity measures are continuously evolving to keep up with the ever-changing threat landscape. Businesses can leverage advanced technologies like encryption, firewalls, and intrusion detection systems to protect their systems and data from cyber threats. The growth of ransomware and other cyberattacks are forcing many companies to rethink their overall cybersecurity strategies, including embracing identity-first and context-aware strategies like zero trust, or technologies like cloud computing, mobile devices, or Cybersecurity As A Service (CaaS).
Cyber risks continue to rank high on the world’s list of threats and cyberattacks are becoming more sophisticated in the recent times. Therefore, it is essential to stay on top of the cybersecurity game and implement effective cybersecurity controls that mitigate or transfer cybersecurity risks and resolve attacks efficiently. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) aims to promote innovation, industry competitiveness, and quality of life with the advancements of cybersecurity.
