One of the questions we get asked regularly by new clients is “what is a cyber security plan?” It is, quite simply, a plan looking at people, processes, and technology within your company.
Forming part of your IT Management Plan, your Cyber Security Plan should lay out the way in which you will keep your data and devices safe from internal and external attacks or, as is more often the case, human error. Depending on the type of business you have you may want to look at some of the following however this is not a comprehensive list.
- Facility Security
- Incident Response and Reporting
- Devices used by staff away from the office
- Mobile Devices
- Network Security
- Operational Security
- Payment Methods
- Policy Development, Management
- Privacy and Data Security
- Scams and Fraud including phishing
- Website Security
