Is your cybersecurity effective? Gauging this question can be a daunting task. Even though it might be intimidating, we assure you that upkeeping your security is one of the most important tasks. Today, we’re going to look at four steps to help you evaluate your cybersecurity.

Step One: What are your weaknesses?

The first step is to identify your weaknesses and what can be done to fix them. Threats are growing more powerful every day, so you’ll need to be on the up and up in order to protect yourself and your data. Simple upgrades and patches are not always the answer, sometimes you’ll need to turn to updated practices or new pieces of training. In order to take these next steps, you’ll have to decide what needs to be done.

Step Two: Standards and established methods

Once you figure out what you need to do to further protect your business, you’ll need to make sure you are doing it in a way that meets any industry regulations and compliances. This might be like the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), which applies to most businesses. Before taking steps, make sure you are doing everything according to plan and in a safe, trusted method.

Step Three: Do you have the right resources?

IT security can be overwhelming. In order to move forward, you’ll need to know what resources you already have and can use, and what you will still need. Even if your business is small with a limited budget, there are still amazing options available for you. MyTek can help you figure out what would be best, and offer some of the best rates.

Step Four: Plan Your Future

A single update won’t get you through until the end of time. While planning this step, plan out the rest of your cybersecurity future. What will you need later? What improvements can be done later down the line? Always be open to the idea of continuous change and upgrading.
