Checklist: cybersecurity for your organization starts here
These basic controls will put you and your organization on the path to better cybersecurity.
1. Use a firewall to secure your Internet connection
You should protect your Internet connection with a firewall. This effectively creates a ‘buffer zone’ between your IT network and other, external networks. In the simplest case, this means between your computer and ‘the Internet.’
Within this buffer zone, incoming traffic can be analyzed to find out whether it should be allowed into your network.
2. Choose the most secure settings for your devices and software
Manufacturers often set the default configurations of new software and devices to be as open and multi-functional as possible. They come with ‘everything on’ to make them easily connectable and usable. These settings can also provide cyber attackers with opportunities to gain unauthorized access to your data.
3. Control who has access to your data and services
To minimize the potential damage that could be done if an account is misused or stolen, staff accounts should have just enough access to software, settings, online services, and device connectivity functions for them to perform their role.
4. Keep your devices and software up to date
No matter what devices your organization is using, it’s important they are kept up to date at all times. This is true for both operating systems and installed apps or software
5. Control who has access to your data and services
To minimize the potential damage that could be done if an account is misused or stolen, staff accounts should have just enough access to software, settings, services, and device connectivity functions for them to perform their role.
