The COVID-19 pandemic has profoundly impacted providers’ and consumers’ general behavior. The global corporate expansion was hampered by the temporary shutdown of manufacturing facilities, job shortages, resource shortages, data breaches, and weak supply chains. However, during the pandemic crisis, there has been an exponential increase in the need for cybersecurity solutions across the manufacturing, healthcare, and government sectors. Key market competitors now concentrate on releasing a range of business security solutions to protect industrial processes from serious cyberattacks. This article at Security InfoWatch by Steve Lasky discusses why business security is gaining traction.
How Business Security Has Reformed
Over the past decade, most organizations have come to the harsh realization that they lack the labor and financial resources to solve their internal difficulties. Meanwhile, attack vectors in the cybersecurity landscape continue to grow. Your company needs a comprehensive security strategy considering people, processes, and technology. Ideally, aligning business operations and technology to support the company objective is the best strategy for a comprehensive cybersecurity plan.
Leveraging Third-Party Services
Jeremy Rasmussen, certified CISSP and CTO and CISO of Abacode, says companies need to have mature cybersecurity measures in place to tackle advanced cyberattacks. Privacy and cybersecurity laws are evolving, and payment card companies must conform to PCI standards that drive compliance needs and supply chain pressures. Most small to midsize enterprises are working with a Managed Cybersecurity & Compliance Provider (MCCP) to find a workable solution. They help leverage an integrated platform to assist smaller organizations in implementing a comprehensive, framework-based cybersecurity program. The goal is to turn cybersecurity risks into a competitive advantage for companies to make unbiased, well-thought-out security investments. Companies can now close the necessary gaps to satisfy a compliance standard. Additionally, they can establish and maintain a comprehensive cybersecurity program by working with third-party audits, attestations, and certification bodies.
