Netwrix offers simple measures to ensure internal policies are working to prevent security breaches
Irvine, CA, June 9, 2015
JP Morgan Chase, Sony Pictures, The Home Depot – these are only a few of many victims of cyber-crimes in 2014. This trend of “breachiness” continues to evolve in 2015 including more recent attacks on health insurance giants Premera Blue Cross and Anthem, and the last attack on Federal Government. These headline-making data breaches have driven many companies to take a fresh look at their security policies to ensure that they are keeping up to date with the fast-moving threat landscape.
There is an important lesson to be learned from these incidents: building internal security policies is not enough to guarantee data protection. Businesses need to verify that the controls they have in place support organizational objectives and adequately perform in today’s cyber environment. To help, Netwrix Corporation, the #1 provider of change and configuration auditing software, suggests the following best practices to ensure that internal security policies you are ready to overcome potential security vulnerabilities:
"The biggest mistake companies make when they build internal policies is taking it as a 'do-once-and-forget activity,' which gives them a false sense of security and increases the chances of being compromised," said Alex Vovk, CEO and co-founder of Netwrix. "Since methods of hacker attacks have become more sophisticated than ever, it is absolutely essential to regularly review and update security policies to ensure that they are properly performed so that you can stay ahead of adversaries. Otherwise policies are completely useless in the fight against cybercrime."
