IT Security and current Wide Area Network Design (WAN) Technologies provide simple, highly secure, and cost effective deployment. A Modern Day Security Posture requires processes around anti-virus and anti-ransomware Security Mitigations, Managed Detection and Response, as well as data and system Recovery Planning.
IT Security has evolved into a living, breathing process that requires constant attention to the rapidly changing security landscape. At Solve iT, we understand that IT Security is defined into three basic components, each with its own lifecycle: Mitigations, Detection & Response, and Recovery.
Most organizations have some sort of mitigations in place such as firewalls and endpoint protection. They also have Recovery mechanisms (ie: Backup) in place in the event data is corrupted, lost, or systems are compromised.
What is generally lacking is a systematic approach to ensuring that the mitigations are constantly updated and are meeting the growing needs of users as they move about from network to network. Who is keeping an eye on these mitigations? Are there users on the network who are unaware how some of their activities may put corporate data at risk?
Often understated is the importance of evaluating RTO (Recovery Time Objective) and RPO (Recovery Point Objective) as they exist to determine if they are acceptable business objectives in the event of a failure in mitigations. Lastly, who is monitoring and responding to events as they occur? Detection and Response teams exist in large organizations to manage this process, but small to mid-sized businesses are often lacking this piece due to personnel and/or budgetary constraints. This is all changing now... and Solve iT can show you how.
1. Identify protections that are needed
2. Implement identified Protections
3. Detect bad actors through monitoring
4. Respond and Remediate quickly all detected events
5. Recover impacted data and/or systems
