Questions to Ask When Making a Cyber Security Plan
November 30, 2017
As cyber-attacks continue to increase in scope and severity, every business needs to make a plan to prepare for an attack. However, an effective cyber security plan should also take your business’s unique traits into account, such as your online presence, third-party technology providers and access to customer data.
Make sure to ask the following questions when you create your cyber security plan:
Who is in charge of updating hardware and software at your business? Is there a plan in place to roll out updates, and who has administrative access to your systems?
If your business has a website, what hosting service does it use? Has that service ever been targeted by cyber-attacks or data breaches?
Does your business regularly work with third parties who have access to your computer systems or customer data? If so, what steps do they take to protect that data?
How are your employees trained to handle cyber threats? How are they instructed to handle customer data and other sensitive information?
