It’s vital that all business owners and executives understand cybersecurity services and frameworks so that they can invest their dollars wisely. This is where our “Pyramid of Security” comes into play.

Advanced

Zero Trust Networking

The concept of "zero trust" in networking emphasizes the importance of not automatically trusting any entity within or outside your network perimeter. Instead, establish and adhere to strict policies and approval criteria for accessing IT systems. This entails verifying users, devices, and networks before granting entry, and implementing posture-based policies for each device operating as a network segment. Additionally, only applications listed in an approved allow-list should be permitted to run on these devices.

Cyber Insurance

While cybersecurity insurance is valuable for all businesses, it's particularly indispensable for highly regulated industries such as financial services and healthcare. Such policies provide coverage against losses and expenses arising from cyber-related crimes and help mitigate regulatory fines. However, compliance with the insurer's requirements is necessary to ensure eligibility for benefits in case of a breach or cyberattack.

Penetration Testing

Dark Web Monitoring involves tracking and monitoring activities that occur on the dark web, where malicious actors often trade sensitive information and conduct illicit transactions. By actively monitoring these spaces, organizations can identify potPenetration Testing, often referred to as pen testing, involves simulating real-world cyber attacks on an organization's systems, networks, and applications to identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses. By conducting controlled attacks, security professionals can assess the effectiveness of existing security measures and identify areas for improvement. Penetration testing helps organizations enhance their security posture, prioritize remediation efforts, and better defend against actual cyber threats.ential threats and breaches involving their sensitive data or credentials. This proactive approach allows for early detection and mitigation of cyber risks before they escalate into larger incidents.

By actively monitoring these spaces, organizations can identify potential threats and breaches involving their sensitive data or credentials. This proactive approach allows for early detection and mitigation of cyber risks before they escalate into larger incidents.

Next-Gen / Cloud Firewall

Traditional routers lack the capability to log activities for future review and correlation against known and emerging threats. Therefore, deploying a next-generation firewall or unified threat management system is essential. These solutions offer advanced filtering and network segmentation, restricting communication between different devices and ensuring secure and swift cloud transformation through Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) integration. Centralizing firewall activities on a cloud infrastructure enables secure access to both cloud and private networks, crucial for monitoring network activity as remote work becomes more prevalent.

Threat Intelligence

The ultimate goal of threat intelligence is to uncover the who, how, and why behind attempted breaches on IT systems. By providing detailed insights into indicators of compromise (IOCs) extracted from log entries indicating malicious activities, it facilitates identifying actionable events and devising countermeasures. Staying updated on industry-specific threats is vital, leveraging both publicly available and subscription-based resources, or consulting with IT service partners to tap into their threat intelligence sources.

Awareness

Web Filtering

Implementing internet browsing filters in the workplace serves multiple purposes, including blocking potentially malicious websites hosting malware, reducing data exfiltration risks, and minimizing work distractions while ensuring regulatory compliance. Leveraging next-generation firewall capabilities facilitates effective web filtering, supplemented by additional applications for remote or traveling team members.

End User Cybersecurity Awareness Training

Given that most breaches stem from phishing and human error, educating employees and contractors becomes paramount. Regular training sessions on the latest cybersecurity threats, along with guidelines for recognizing and reporting suspicious activities, are essential. Evaluating their knowledge through physical penetration tests and simulated phishing attacks provides opportunities for ongoing education and improvement without stigmatizing mistakes.

Asset Management

Maintaining a comprehensive inventory of hardware, applications, virtual servers, and data assets is essential for robust protection. Organized asset management prevents overlooked or unsupported assets from becoming vulnerabilities, while a proactive plan for updates and replacements minimizes the risk of exploitation or prolonged downtime.

Continuous Scanning

Continuous scanning of networks, devices, and data is fundamental to identifying vulnerabilities resulting from configuration errors, patch management lapses, or malicious activities. Prompt detection and remediation of these vulnerabilities are critical to preempt cyber threats, with continuous scanning also aiding in the discovery of unknown assets and compliance with certain regulatory requirements.

Foundation

Patching / Updating

Timely installation of critical patches and security updates is crucial for addressing vulnerabilities in operating systems, software, and firmware. Swift action within the first 7 days for actively exploited vulnerabilities and within 30 days for other patches minimizes exposure to cyber threats.

Email Security

Email remains a prime target for cyber attacks, making comprehensive filtering imperative to combat spam, viruses, and phishing attempts. Encrypting sensitive data transmitted via email adds an extra layer of protection against data loss or leakage. Identifying impersonation emails and screening attachments and links for malware further enhances security, while logging message traffic aids in post-breach investigations and containment efforts.

End Point Protection

Protecting endpoints, including computers and mobile devices, requires more than traditional antivirus software. Employing digital forensics, endpoint policies, and whitelisting authorized applications enhances protection against threats. Mobile device management systems are essential for securing smartphones, ensuring compliance, and mitigating risks associated with personal devices.

Identity Protection

As identities increasingly serve as the gateway to accessing resources, safeguarding them is paramount. Strong, unique passwords managed through a password manager, coupled with multi-factor authentication and biometric verification whenever feasible, enhance identity protection against unauthorized access.

Business Continuity

Business continuity planning is indispensable for mitigating the impact of disasters, whether natural, accidental, or malicious. Plans should encompass remediation strategies for both local and remote disruptions, along with robust backup and recovery procedures. Regular testing of backups and automated recovery processes ensures readiness to restore data in case of emergencies.
