How do you quantify the real-life protection and efficiency benefits of your cyber security system?
Choosing a cyber defense firm for your threat protection can seem like a daunting task. How do I know what I need, how do I know if I’m being proactive or if I’m truly covered?
Reading between the lines is easier than you think.
- Don’t compromise on quality or inflexible solutions. Make sure they customize to your business’ needs.
- Know your needs. Before entering a long-term contract make certain your needs have been assessed and explained to you.
- Don’t be overly ambitious, but don’t lower your expectations. No one can guarantee that a breach will never happen. The goal is to make it more difficult for hackers so they move to an easier target.
- Get to know the firm. Cyber security should be an integral part of your business. It’s the safeguard between your client and financial data and cyber threats. Your vCIO becomes a part of your team.
With the cost of cyber crime set to top 45 trillion over the next five years, now is the time to be proactive and go on the offense.
