Cyber resilience goes beyond mere security tools or yearly employee training. While both are crucial, a multi-layered cybersecurity approach is essential for the most robust protection.
You might be asking “Where is the best place to start?” Or “Is what I am doing enough?” I think we all recognize that cybercrime is on the rise. Recent research indicates that cybercrime is indeed up 300% since 2020. Just in the last few months alone, you probably have heard or read about crippling ransomware attacks at Las Vegas casinos and resorts virtually shutting down their operations.
According to the latest research, did you know?
- Every 39 seconds a company falls victim to a cyberattack.
- Cybercrime has increased by over 300% since 2020.
- There is a cybersecurity employment shortage with over four million unfilled IT cybersecurity job openings around the globe.
- More than 800,000 people fall victim to cyberattacks each year.
- 85% of all organizations consider their data as one of their most valuable assets.
According to Verizon’s 2023 Data Breaches Investigations Report, 82% of data breaches were the result of human error.
As cybercrime continues to increase, organizations must consider actions to improve their cyber security and cyber resilience. Protecting critical systems and data is a shared responsibility; it doesn’t have to be complex.
To bolster cybersecurity, organizations must maintain constant awareness. They should regularly update systems, encrypt and backup data. Cyber security is an ongoing action. It isn’t one and done, which is why we put together a list of 11 tips that can help you, no matter where you are in your cyber security journey.
Our recently published infographic highlights these 11 tips that organizations can use as a checklist. During October’s “Cyber Security Awareness Month” 11:11 Systems hosted a webinar on the importance of these same 11 tips. These measures are essential for organizations of all sizes to combat the rising tide of cybercrime. These actions will help protect sensitive data, maintain business continuity, and safeguard customer trust.
In our white paper, “How to Stay Out of the Headlines” we highlight how to protect your sensitive data from a ransomware attack. With evolving security threats and malicious software no organization wants to be on the front page. Learn prevention, data protection, and remediation strategies that will make sure your data is safe and your organization stays out of the headlines.
Do you understand your organization’s risk? It is nearly impossible to “fix” what we don’t know is “broken”. Our Cyber Recovery Risk Assessment will give you a more in-depth understanding of what risks your organization faces. Recovering from a cyber-attack requires planning, tools, and processes. This free assessment will better help you understand your organization’s risk profile.
Cybercriminals are constantly shifting their tactics, making it vital for companies to “always be on the lookout” for the next attack. Remember the job unfortunately is never done. From phishing attacks to ransomware, businesses are exposed to a constant variety of threats. Implementing and updating vigorous security measures not only minimizes the risks but also ensures compliance with regulations, aids in acquiring cyber insurance, and helps maintain a positive public reputation.
