The form of protection you need depends on the activities of your company.
What is your type of business?
Do you have one office or more? Do you run a webshop? Do you manage intellectual property?
Where are the apps and the data?
Do you have your own datacenter or do you work in the cloud? Perhaps you use a combination of the two?
What are your employees’ profiles?
What type of data do they come into contact with? Which devices do they use? Do they work from home and on the road, as well?
Define not so much which risks you want to guard against, but which activities you want to permit. Which profiles gain access to which data and applications? Define your risk profile. There is no such thing as a totally watertight IT environment. Look for a balance between the risk you find acceptable and the budget you have available for security.
Examine the existing infrastructure and add the missing elements.
IT security is not a one-off exercise. Don’t let your attention flag. Take care of the necessary updates and monitoring. Prefer to focus on your core activities? Then bring in a specialist and opt for IT security via managed services.
