End-Point Security & Cybersecurity Functional Areas
- Protect against viruses, spyware, and other malicious code Ensure all the business’s computers are equipped with antivirus software and anti spyware, and are updated regularly. This software is readily available from a variety of vendors who each provide regular patches and updates to their products to correct security problems and improve functionality. Configure all software to install updates automatically.
- Secure your Networks Safeguard your internet connection by using a firewall and encrypting information. If you have a wifi network, make sure it is secure and hidden. To hide your wifi network, set up your wireless access point(s), wireless controller, or router so it does not broadcast the network name, known as the Service Set Identifier (SSID). Also, Password protect access to the router.
- Make backup copies of important business data and information Regularly backup the data on all computers. Critical data includes word processing documents, electronic spreadsheets, databases, financial files, human resources files, and accounts receivable/payable files. Backup data automatically, if possible, or at least weekly, and store the copies either off-site or in the cloud.
- Establish security practices and policies to protect sensitive information Establish policies on how employees should handle and protect personally identifiable information, and other sensitive data. Clearly outline the consequences of violating your business’s cybersecurity policies.
- Educate employees about cyber threats and hold them accountable Educate your employees about online threats and how to protect your business’s data, including safe use of social networking sites. Depending on the nature of your business, employees may be introducing competitors to sensitive data about your firm’s internal business. Employees should be informed about how to post online in a way that does not reveal any trade secrets to the public or competing businesses. Hold employees accountable to the business’s internet security policies and procedures.
- Require employees to use strong passwords, and to change them often Consider implementing multi-factor authentication that requires additional information beyond a password to gain entry. Check with vendors that handle sensitive data, especially financial institutions, to see if they offer multi-factor authentication.
- Create a mobile device action plan Mobile devices can create significant security and management challenges, especially if they hold confidential information or can access the corporate network. Require users to password protect their devices, encrypt their data, and install security apps to prevent criminals from stealing information while the phone is on public networks. Be sure to set reporting procedures for lost or stolen equipment.
- Perform an annual cybersecurity risk assessment Information security risk assessment is an ongoing process of discovering, correcting and preventing security problems. The risk assessment is an integral part of a risk management process designed to provide appropriate levels of security for information Systems. Information security risk assessments are part of sound security practices and may be required (HIPAA, PCI, DSS, SEC, OCIE, FINRA etc.)
