IT Security Tip: Is it time for cybersecurity planning?

Scott Verbus Uncategorized

The time to start planning for a security threat isn’t during a virus outbreak or immediately after you discover funds transferred within your banking accounts. Decisions and judgments made during this time are typically driven by emotion and not facts. The time to make those cyberthreat plans is now.

Things to consider for your business cybersecurity plan:

  • Physical access to your building(s)
  • What to do with lost or stolen mobile devices
  • PCI (payment card industry) compliance requirements
  • Data-breach incident response
  • Threat monitoring

There are great resources out there for businesses that just don’t know where to start with cybersecurity. Take a look at http://www.fcc.gov/cyberplannerfor a customizable guide to where to get started with operational and organizational planning.
