What is the Cyber Security Program?
A well-informed organization is a well prepared and secured organization. When people talk about security, they generally talk about anti-virus protection, firewalls and strong passwords. Anti-virus software has clear-cut cost savings in its reduction of needed interventions by IT personnel. Firewalls are your network’s first line of defense against unwanted traffic. Encryption reduces costs by reducing the risks associated with a data breach and enables collaboration with third parties. While these are all integral components of a good security program, they are just part of the overall picture.
A cyber security program is the process of incorporating all of these areas of security into a company-wide practice to defend against potentially devastating data loss, theft, or attacks. ADKtechs’ structured security program comprehensively integrates security best practices in order to secure user access to company resources, protect data from outsiders, provide a layered approach to perimeter and core firewall defenses, and educate users of the potential risks that they can face on a daily basis.
