Knowing how cyber security can help your business is critical to understanding what cyber security protects: data. Your company’s data is the most valuable asset, make sure it’s well secured.

A short list of how our cyber security services can help protect your mission critical data:

  • Security Consulting
  • End-Point Threat Protection
  • Security Assessment
  • 24/7 Monitoring & Alerting

Protecting yourself against modern-day threats seeking to steal, ransom, or damage your data is vital to maintaining your business’s operations and safeguarding its integrity and profitability.

    ASi Blueprint for Cyber Security Services

    Our blueprint for how to best secure your network, end users, systems and data consists of the following:

    Edge Protection, Network Protection, Endpoint Protection and User Protection.

    The simplest way to explain cyber security is to view it as a collection of processes, technologies, and techniques necessary to protect your business’ devices and networks from cyber-attacks. Cyber-attacks can take on many forms, but they typically have the objective of stealing or damaging your sensitive data. The types of data a hacker or other malicious actor could target include:

    • Personal identifiable information (PII) such as social security numbers or tax IDs
    • Corporate financial data
    • Intellectual property (IP)
    • Confidential product information and trade secrets
    • Other types of personal information

    Be proactive about network security. Ask us how.

    Edge Protection

    Edge protection, or edge security, is a specific subset of network protection that focuses on applications, devices, and users at the business network’s furthest points (the edge), away from a centralized data center or core network.

    Edge data protection processes typically involve data encryption, multi-factor authentication, like two-factor or three-factor, and enterprise-grade cryptographic protocols such as SSL and TLS. This is one of the key elements in any cyber security services setup.

    • Confidentiality (Involves keeping your data secure and private)
    • Integrity (Is the data you have trustworthy and free from tampering?)
    • Availability (Is the data available to your users?)

    Network Protection

    The primary objective of cyber security is to protect your networks against attacks and unauthorized access, from the core to the edge and the endpoints.

    A well-designed network protection system can protect your business’ network against some of the most common cyber threats, such as distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, adware, spyware, botnet attacks, trojans, worms, and other types of malware.

    This is the second big piece of the puzzle in any cyber security services setup. The three concepts of network protection are encapsulated in the CIA triad:

    Endpoint Protection

    Endpoint security refers to the practices and tools employed to secure the devices used by the organization members to connect to a network. Examples include desktop computers, workstations, laptops, smartphones, and other fixed and mobile devices.

    Endpoint security may be as simple as installing enterprise firewalls and antivirus software. It may also be as detailed as complete device control rules like regulating or banning Bring Your Own Device policies or mandating specific apps.

    Endpoint protection tools include web filters, network access control software, email encryption, and VPNs. It is the third critical component of any cyber security services plan.

    Confidentiality: Defines the rules and processes that limit access to information and determine who is an authorized person and who isn’t.

    Integrity: Assures that the data protected remains consistent and accurate without experiencing unexpected changes or alterations.

    Availability: Ensures that the data protected remains accessible to authorized persons without disruption or inconvenience.

    Patch Management & Security Updates

    Many types of cyber-attacks rely on exploiting vulnerabilities such as programming flaws, glitches, or security gaps in the software used by a business. The more an organization depends on older, outdated software, the more likely such attacks become.

    The best way to prevent a breach or attack of this type is to implement diligent patch management and software security update protocols. Our cyber security services can include complete patch management services should you need us to take over the responsibility.

    One of the most critical first steps is to ensure all software employed by the company is actively updated and supported. Software that is no longer supported or has reached end-of-life status is more vulnerable, as it means developers no longer write updates and fixes for them.

    Three types of patches and updates exist, each covering different aspects of data security: security patches, bug-fixing patches, and feature patches.

    Security patches are updates specifically designed to address exploits and weaknesses that a hacker might use to conduct a cyber-attack. In some cases, security patches are the result of a successful attack.

    Bug-fixing patches are patches designed to correct application errors and eliminate glitches and issues that hinder regular software operation. Although bug-fixing isn’t necessarily about safety, some hackers exploit bugs and glitches to gain unauthorized access to a network and conduct attacks.

    Feature patches are updates offering new product features or improving the functionality of existing software features. These patches range from simple performance and fine-tuning updates improving responsiveness and load times to completely new features and options that expand your business’s capabilities.

    User Protection & Education

    Cyber Security Is Everyone's Responsibility

    Without proper information and education, even the most advanced cyber security measures cannot protect your data effectively. As the information security adage goes, the human element is the weakest link of any cyber security system.

    A common way to illustrate how the human factor can compromise security is password safety. It doesn’t matter how strong your password is if you give it away to the wrong people.

    Instead of viewing the human factor as an inevitable weakness, every business should make education and user protection the central tenets of their cyber security plan.

    User Protection & Education

    • Raise Awareness: Security should be everyone's responsibility in an organization.
    • Educate Employees: Help them recognize & report potential threats properly.
    • Communication: Explain & inform cyber security threats in simple terms.
    • Password Security: Promote secure password handling practices.
    • Principle of Least Privilege: Grant users access to data, files or physical areas of your network with the lowest premises they need.
    • Centralized Security Policy: Customize your cybersecurity policies for each department of the business.
