Comprehensive cyber security, which includes technologies, processes and proficient knowledge, is therefore essential:
1. Security Operations Center (SOC)-as-a-Service as the core of cyber defence: when it comes to protection against cyberattacks, most organisations lack specialists. For comprehensive prevention and rapid response to security incidents, companies should therefore consider and commission a Security Operations Center as a service. A SOC acts as the command center of the cyber security strategy. Trained experts are responsible for the continuous monitoring, analysis and optimization of a company’s security status. They help to quickly detect attacks and initiate appropriate countermeasures in the event of a security incident.
2. Keeping software up to date: Unpatched operating systems and applications are easy and popular targets for attacks. Companies must therefore carry out regular vulnerability scans.
3. Security solutions: Email security filters, antivirus software and firewalls help in blocking known malware types. Companies should also rely on Endpoint Detection and Response and advanced threat protection.
4. Management of access rights: Users should only be given as many access rights as they need for their tasks.
