#TechTuesday: Holistic Cybersecurity Approach

Nasib Ali, BlueChipTek Solutions Architect, shares a few tips on the benefits of having a holistic cybersecurity approach to prevent data breaches and attacks that can make or break your organization.

In today’s enterprise environments, cybersecurity complexity is growing by the minute and hardly a week goes by without the announcement of a major security breach infiltrating sensitive business and consumer data. In enterprise environments, the threat landscape is huge and attacks are increasing in terms of scope and sophistication. Hackers are constantly deploying innovative attacks that challenge even the most advance security programs.

Data security is crucial and can make or break an organization. We all understand the business impact of data breaches. If hackers gain access to sensitive information, it could potentially affect your ability to do business and tarnish your reputation. To prevent such attacks, it is important to adopt well thought-out cybersecurity strategies that encompass risk assessments, investing in intelligent security technologies and creating a cybersecurity culture.


Assesses Cybersecurity Risks

The first step of holistic approach to cybersecurity is assessing your enterprise security and understanding what potential attacks your organization may face. Moreover, analyze and evaluate identified risks and their relevance to your organization.


Invest In Intelligent Cybersecurity Technologies

In today’s complex cybersecurity landscape, it is important to invest in intelligent technologies that will help you get full visibility to your environment, detect and prevent known threats as well as unknown threats. A holistic approach means adopting a security platform - deploying perimeter firewall, protecting your endpoints, datacenters, cloud applications, and anywhere your applications and data reside.


Create Cybersecurity Culture

Having next generation security solutions will help but it is not enough to secure your environment. Vast majority of the time, people internal to an organization are the cause of data breaches. It is important to create a cybersecurity culture where all employees from Engineering to Sales will play a part in protecting your organization. This is done by creating awareness and having all employees participate in regular cybersecurity training sessions with your Security Team.
