IT security requires tools, awareness and continuous monitoring and management

With cybersecurity threats growing in number and sophistication all the time, you need the most advanced security solutions working for you. The majority of cyber attacks are untargeted as they exploit software and hardware vulnerabilities rather than specific businesses. This means small to medium size businesses are as much at risk as large enterprises. Unfortunately traditional endpoint security measures are no longer sufficient.

As cybersecurity is such a broad subject, a framework is required so that security updates can be managed and made in the appropriate areas. Arrow IT has adopted the UK Governments Cyber Essentials Scheme to conduct its SMB security assessments. This framework identifies two key threat areas that require mitigation:

• Phishing: malware infection through users clicking on malicious e-mail attachments or website links
• Hacking: exploitation of known vulnerabilities in Internet connected servers and devices using widely available tools and techniques


According to the government framework, a large majority of risks can be mitigated by implementation of improvements in five key areas:
· Boundary firewalls and internet gateways
· Secure configuration of computers and devices
· Access control and user privileges
· Malware protection
· Patch management of operating systems and applications

What does a good business look like?
· A proactive positive commitment to cybersecurity
· Gap analysis and prioritisation of tasks
· DPIA’s (Data Protection Impact Assessments)
· Building a plan and then executing against it
· Comprehensive technical security measures implemented
· Measurable risk reduction
· Documented facts and processes (checklists)

Arrow IT can help by
· Conducting a gap analysis, including an IT infrastructure audit
· Conducting manual network penetration tests
· Implementing remote monitoring and management (RMM)
· Deploying advanced security technologies (antivirus and malware protection)
· Implementing automated network infrastructure monitoring
· Implementing improved business continuity solutions
