Why CyberSecurity is Required? How to Effectively Maintain it?

The core functionality of cyber security involves protecting information and systems from major cyber threatsThese cyber threats take many forms (e.g., application attacks, malware, ransomware, phishing, exploit kits). 
Unfortunately, cyber adversaries have learned to launch automated and sophisticated attacks using these tactics – at lower and lower costs. As a result, keeping pace with cyber security strategy and operations can be a challenge, particularly in government and enterprise networks where, in their most disruptive form, cyber threats often take aim at secret, political, military or infrastructural assets of a nation, or its people.

Cyber Security could be easily maintained by:

   1. User Education and Awareness: Produce user security policies covering acceptable and secure use of the organization’s systems. Establish a staff training program. Maintain user awareness of cyber risks.
  2. Removable Media Controls: Create a policy to control all access to removable media, such as thumb drives. Limit media types and usage. Scan all media for malware before importing to the corporate system.

  3. Secure Configuration: Apply security patches and ensure that secure configuration of all systems is maintained. Create a system inventory and define a baseline build for all devices.

 4. Managing User Privileges: Establish account management processes and limit the number of privileged accounts. Limit user privileges and monitor user activity. Control access to activity and audit logs

 5. Incident Management. Establish an incident management response and disaster recovery capability. Produce and test incident management plans. Provide specialist training to the incident management team. Report criminal incidents to law enforcement.

 6. Monitoring. Establish a monitoring strategy and produce supporting policies. Continuously monitor all systems and networks. Analyze logs for unusual activity that could indicate an attack.

 7. Malware Protection. Produce relevant policy and establish anti-malware defenses that are applicable and relevant to business areas. Scan for malware across the organization.

 8. Network Security. Protect your networks against external and internal attacks. Manage the network perimeter. Filter out unauthorized access and malicious content. Monitor and test security controls.
