Sometimes the best defense is a good offense.
The internet is filled with hazards, all of which aim to infiltrate your network defenses. Threat remediation should be viewed as an active approach to security where risk is assessed and warnings are identified, flagged, and resolved. As part of a complete cybersecurity strategy, threat remediation is the best way to circumvent hackers that are always working on new ways to breach your system.
When you assess your network’s vulnerabilities and risk, threat remediation is an additional way SNC can make sure your network is as airtight from threats including ransomware and other cyberattacks.
Implementing new security controls help keep your company safe. SNC will help your business implement:
- Perimeter defenses like firewalls and content filtering
- Antivirus software
- Intrusion detection and prevention
- Endpoint security
- Policy development
- Security awareness
- Vulnerability and patch management
- Consistent monitoring
A risk assessment is the process where our security team gathers intelligence about potential threats and vulnerabilities in your systems help determine the level of risk posed to your company. This is a key component of threat remediation. A proper security policy considers a number of key areas and gives a threat assessment of these risks that are both internal and external. These areas can include:
- Third-party vendors – How secure are they? Who is the cybersecurity point of contact?
- Identity management – Do we use two-factor authentication? What password protections are available?
- Awareness education – How do we educate our employees about cybersecurity? Are any tools or guidance given to employees? Do we test our employees and follow up on any cybersecurity training we give them?
- Policy – Do we have a security policy? Is it updated? How does it impact our overall security strategy?
- Emerging technologies – What can be added to enhance our cybersecurity? How secure are the technologies already in place and where are they applied?
- Incident management – How are incidents monitored and resolved? How well does it work and what updates can be made?
- Security management – Who is responsible for implementing strategy? What strategy is is being used and is it effective? Should any changes be made?
- Security assessment – How effective are the current technologies and programs?
How you identify and resolve threats is an important aspect of your cyberdefense.
