3 Ways To Prevent A Cyber Attack

Having the right IT infrastructure is critical to strengthen your company’s cyber security. There are 3 main classifications to prevent potential cyber attacks: hardware solutions, software solutions, and smart-thinking solutions. Find out more:

🖥 Hardware Solutions 

USB dongles, disabling ports, drive locks, mobile-enabled access etc. provide the physical assurance that networks and systems can only be accessed by authorized persons using these devices.

💿 Software Solutions 

Viruses, worms, denial of service (DOS) attacks, phishing, etc. are some forms of cyber-attacks and countermeasures for them are anti-virus software, firewalls, intrusion detection & prevention systems, data encryption, etc. Keeping software up-to-date is also necessary to constantly combat new and advanced attacks.

💡 Smart-Thinking Solutions 

Another major component in ensuring an effective strategy to prevent cyber attacks is assigning capable people to manage the technology. IT Security teams are a critical part of the corporate structure to control both hardware and software. You may have the latest gadgets and technologies, but if you do not know how to operate them, they are useless. Aside from operating these technologies, the IT Security expert should be able to maintain them in their top form.

One of the steps that companies make to ensure that their systems and applications are up-to-date is by hiring professional penetration testers. This is where YOU come in.
