Cybersecurity is a daunting and complicated topic. How can you ensure you're keeping your company's network and data safe and secure? It's a challenge you must navigate, but with so many products and solutions available, it can be difficult to know if you are making the right strategic choices for your operational model.
At Spearhead, we help you simplify and tackle security by breaking it down into three threats: People, Processes, and Tools. We partner with enterprises to identify areas to focus on, create strategies to solve them, and procure the best-for-them security solutions and products.
The Best Cybersecurity Plans Start With Looking At Threat #1: Your Organization's People
We've talked before about how our approach to Telecom and IT wisdom begins with empathy, and it's no different with network security. Before we can talk about "best practices" or which products are needed, we need to understand your organization's skillsets and in-house capabilities. We need to know about the people.
- What is your knowledge base and skill set in-house?
- What are your capabilities in-house?
- What do you want to keep in-house?
- How would you like to interface with vendors or partners?
Sometimes this means you need a partner who can take the wheel and drive for you — a hands-off approach. Sometimes it means you want to keep certain components in-house and only outsource specific parts because you know you don't want to, or can't, manage the staffing for it. Sometimes it just comes down to risk: you don't want to take on the risk of doing it yourself and want someone else to take it on for you.
When you partner with Spearhead, our first step is working with you to nail down the best answers to those these questions. We bring the wisdom to know if you should handle it all yourself — if you have the right people to handle it — or if you should outsource and partner with a vendor who can do it for you.
Threat #2: Are the Right Cybersecurity Processes Established?
- Do you have a business continuity plan?
- Have you done a risk assessment?
- Have you done tabletop exercises?
- Do you know where your security gaps are?
- Have vulnerability assessments been completed?
