Cybersecurity Mindset

Technology has improved much of our lives, especially in the workplace. Tasks that would take hours to complete are easily automated into workflow management systems; even filing is fading out as data is most often stored on the computers and servers. Unfortunately, the convenience of technology does come with its own set of risks, especially when it comes to security. In today's digital workplace, Cybersecurity is not an option but a necessity.

A panelist had an opportunity to talk with Cyber Insurance Expert Marc Schein about ways to mitigate exposure against data incidents and avoid potential financial and reputational losses.

Tips from an Expert

Here are some ways your company can minimize the risk of a Cybersecurity threat. 

  • Incident Response Plan: Have a plan in place if a situation arises. Make sure leaders know what their responsibilities are in the event of a cybersecurity incident.
  • Vulnerability Scan: The first step an organization should take in assessing their Cybersecurity is a vulnerability scan. Schein explains, "it is an external test that effectively will allow us to see where holes or gaps are within their external perimeter without going intrusively in the network." 
  • Vulnerability Test: Take it a step further by doing a vulnerability test. Schein recommends a penetration test, a more intrusive test to find gaps in your network security.
