A comprehensive approach to mitigating risk can help your company better understand how to improve your cyber security posture. We suggest everyone start by quantifying risks, examining security controls, and comparing one's cyber security posture against global industry standards. Understanding your cyber security posture can also help you risk mitigation strategy and protect valuable digital assets.
Risk posture refers to an organization's overall defense against cyber-attacks, including the overall management and strategy of protecting software, hardware, networks, services, and information. To protect your business against security breaches, it is crucial to understand and define the entirety of one's risk posture. Doing so will increase your company's readiness and ability to react to and recover from data breaches.
Risk assessment is about understanding, managing, monitoring, and mitigating cyber security risks across your IT environment. Risk assessment gives insight into any gaps in your cyber security framework and assets that could be affected by a cyberattack (hardware, systems, laptops, customer data, and intellectual property).
It is essential to consider every potential entry point where malicious code or cybercriminals can enter your IT environment. Risk assessments should be integral to any organization's larger cyber security strategy.
Ask yourself: “How vulnerable are we to potential breaches and attacks?. With risk posture, the idea is to fully understand the threat landscape and create a security framework that allows you to be ahead of any cybercriminals. Here are a few best practices to consider to protect your organization from disruptive and costly intrusions.
Start by identifying all your IT assets, including systems, applications, devices, data, users, and business processes.
Perform a comprehensive risk assessment across attack vectors that pose security risks and prioritize based on business criticality.
Continuously and carefully adjust your risk posture to align with the changing cyber environment.
Create a plan that covers all elements of your organization’s cyber-risk management infrastructure that addresses how to recover quickly if an incident does occur.
