Talking SMAC and Cyber Security

(Social, Mobile, Analytics, Cloud)

At some point, your organization will suffer a cyber-security breach. You may even have a breach at this current moment. Predictions in 2015 indicate that at least 60% of enterprises will discover a breach of sensitive data. Most breaches are not even discovered by the breached party. Inadequate incident response leads to financial, operational, and reputational losses. *

What do you do to protect your organization and/or recover from a data loss or security breach?

  1. Properly encrypted data protection in two remote data centers
  2. Phishing test(s) to determine your % of being susceptible
  3. Ongoing education and training for staff to reduce or eliminate cyber attacks
  4. Develop and test an incident response plan
  5. Disaster recovery test to gauge RTO and RPO
  6. Repeat steps 1 through 5 on a semi-annual basis
