5 questions to ask yourself about your business Cyber Security

One of the biggest risks to small and medium business and not for profit organisations is cybercrime (According to Gartner it is number three). Managers, owners, C level Executives and board members should be thinking that protecting the information within the organisation is vitally important. It is critical to the well being of all businesses.

In most cases this critical business requirement is delegated to someone who “knows computers”. Do you know what they have done is protecting your organisation? Do you know if they are doing it correctly? In the event of a security breach, along with everything else that is happening, do you want to be playing the blame game?

Thinking that your organisation is “too small to be a target” or “has nothing of value worth stealing” or “why would someone want to steal from us” are all fallacies. Every organisation is a target of cybercrime.

Every organisation has something that the cyber criminal wants. It could be your money. It could be your intellectual Property. It could be your reputation. It could be the technology within the business so the cyber criminal can target someone else though your business.

  • We all have something of value!
  • We all have something worth stealing!
  • We are all vulnerable!

Cyber criminals came in many shapes and sizes. The majority of cybercrime is perpetrated by teenagers using free and readily available software kits that targets everyone on the Internet.

This “noise” is what hides the real bad guys. The real bad guys are the ones that hacked the Target payment system last year or built a legitimate business around the crypto locker virus.

One of the biggest problems that management face is what are the questions that I need to ask my departments and my staff?

  • Do you know what you should be doing to protect your organisation?
  • Do you know what questions to ask of your IT department, CIO, outsourced IT support?
  • Do you know if they are doing it right?
