As a business enabler, cybersecurity should not be an afterthought. Especially since cyber-attacks are no longer a matter of if, but when – even for SMEs. Strengthen your organisation’s cyber defence now by adopting these 6 Essentials from the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore.
#1: Know your Assets
Identify and understand the cyber components of your organisation, so as to prevent and detect unauthorised access to those assets.
#2: Allow only Authorised Software to Work
Implement application control integrated with antivirus, so as to allow only authorised software to work.
#3: Timely Patching and Updating
Patch and update your operating systems, firmware and applications in a timely manner to reduce system known vulnerabilities thereby minimising exploitative attacks.
#4: Giving the right Admin ‘Passes’
Restrict administrator privileges so as not to give attackers privileged rights to compromise systems.
#5: Detect Breaches promptly
Data breaches as soon as possible by setting up continuous monitoring with enabled audit trails/security logging.
#6: Access Control
Ensure authorised access only, by implementing multifactor authentication.
