Three tips for dealing with cyber security breaches

If you haven’t been a victim of a cybercrime, it is only a matter of time before you are, according to some electronic security experts. After all, there are a number of electronic security breaches that are not highly publicized; either because they do not involve large businesses or they do not include the theft of personal information or credit card numbers.

However, this does not mean that these types of breaches do not occur, or that they may not occur on any given day. So when it does, will you be prepared? In any event, it is prudent to have some mechanisms in place in order to deal with a breach. This post will identify some helpful tips. 

A seven day response plan – It is customary to have a one-week window to deal with cyber breaches before customers begin to notice. Because of this, it is imperative to have a step-by-step plan for addressing these types of calamities as soon as possible.

Recognize legitimate threats – Updating your systems to thwart cyber threats may go without saying, but it is also important to know how to recognize threats that could materialize into damaging problems.

Know your assets and how to protect them – Again, it may go without saying that you have to protect confidential information and proprietary items. But determining what is deemed to be sensitive information and creating the proper safeguards to protect it can reduce the risk of it being exposed or stolen.

The preceding is not legal advice. If you have questions about the legal implications of protecting sensitive data, an experienced attorney can help.
