Strategic Risk Planning

Cyber Security Threats continue to be a major issue for both businesses and individuals with a reported 117,339 incoming cyber-attacks every day (The Global State of Information Security Survey 2015).

Strategic IT Risk Planning therefore means building capabilities to conquer and minimize possible Cyber Threats. The question is not if an attack will happen rather then when it will be.

Too many companies believe technical measures are sufficient but they are wrong, not considering any Strategic IT Risk Planning.

Often businesses do not take into account reckless human behaviour due lack of awareness, ending up floundering. The reason is that these companies did not have a Risk Management in mind, an IT-Security Plan and hence lack of staff education.

Cyber Attacks may result in substantial financial losses but will definitively lead to scratched reputation and lower clients acceptance. Hence, Cyber Security & Prevention through enhanced Practices is key focus for each Business Management.

Intrusion, Troubleshooting & related Costs

It is recommendable to transform existing IT-Systems into sophisticated solutions, preventing Cyber Threats and protecting Company Assets.

IT planning & strategy

Our clients are often surprised by the possibilities we present to them; by thinking outside the box we present exciting new ventures:

For businesses it is no longer a question of if a cyber-attack will occur but rather when, and as such the demand for qualified IT security professionals has risen exponentially. Surprisingly, most incidents occur due to lack of awareness of staff, probably leading to huge fines.

Research beyond physical Equipment to address Cyber Threats

With the internet of things (IoT) becoming ubiquitous, and consumers demanding products with an emphasis on cybersecurity and privacy, businesses are revamping their security policies. Key IoT security areas include BYOD-policies and technologies to protect consumer privacy, as well as data governance policies.

Conventional defenses, including firewalls and antivirus software, remain an integral part of an organization’s security lineup. They block the majority of standard attacks by hackers on IT systems, and curb the spread of malware. Additionally, educating employees on cyber security and potential threats is a key aspect of any prevention strategy. This added layer of protection is vital, as professional criminals can often exploit the human factor to pinpoint vulnerabilities and obtain network access. Furthermore, it is important to deploy products and IT solutions that are secure by design. And enterprises should determine what data is truly missioncritical – and ensure that robust defenses are in place for these key assets.

Dissecting the tactics employed by hackers can help hone defenses, making them more effective. Companies should implement intelligent security management that aggregates information from a variety of sources – and analyzes it in real time to shield systems from novel attack vectors. To combat these emerging threats, we work with various partners, specializing in protecting systems from complex digital threats. The cyber security enterprise detects previously unknown, particularly dangerous vulnerabilities – frequently encountered in popular programs. Furthermore, major corporations should analyze attacks in dedicated cyber security centers, and share their findings with others.

Creating a list of potential qualified prospects for your service or product can be daunting when you’re beginning your business. However, this needs to be considered as a follow up on your Target Market Analysis so you can hit the ground running.

IT Security Plan

A strong IT Security Plan requires going beyond intuition and experience, and supporting your idea with fact-based market research. Employees need to have awareness of possible cyber Threats and confidence to address issues; hence a company must invest in ongoing education of staff.
