According to the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), while there are no direct cyber threats from Russia against the United States at this time, it does not hurt to be prepared with extra precautions.
Make Sure You Can Spot Problems Before They Start
One of the easiest ways cyber terrorists can impact an IT infrastructure is through sending phishing emails that one of your employees can open unknowingly. It is important to educate your team and make sure they understand how to identify a potentially suspicious or harmful email, and, just as essentially, to make sure they know what to do about it. If you need assistance with this, contact us today about our IT Security Training.
Have a Plan
Sometimes, even the best training and awareness programs are not enough to prevent issues. It is beneficial for businesses during this time to plan for the worst but hope for the best where cyber security is concerned. Creating an emergency response plan can be complex and time-consuming. If your team needs support and assistance, QualityIP’s IT Services Near Me includes everything from IT consulting to IT Risk Management to even serving as your virtual CIO. We can take care of security complexities while your internal team continues to manage day-to-day operations.
Fire Drills Don’t Have To Be For Fires
QualityIP suggests testing your IT infrastructure and perhaps even staging a mock cyber attack to test the strength of your recovery plan. Is your data properly backed up in case of an attack? Will your company’s primary functions continue to work during an outage? Will your remote employees still be able to access what they need? One of the benefits of working with QualityIP is we can help your team assess all facets of your company’s IT and can implement these kinds of drills.
