Fighting back against CaaS requires smart, proactive responses from cybersecurity and IT professionals. Businesses need help shoring up security, as well as identifying and addressing hacker activity. With employee ignorance as one of the biggest areas of vulnerability, security training across departments is an essential first step.
In addition, professionals can help businesses to:
• Perform routine security audits
• Run penetration testing for programs, networks and applications
• Establish a security monitoring system
• Use information from past security breaches or hacker activity to strengthen defenses
Even with these protections in place, it’s not possible to completely avoid being hacked. Creating and testing a response plan ensures companies are ready to defend their networks and contain breaches before extensive damage can occur.
As it becomes harder to stay ahead of hackers and prevent cybercriminals from infiltrating business networks, IT and cybersecurity professionals need to be more diligent than ever. Business owners, even those at the enterprise level, don’t have the tools or knowledge necessary to stand up against the onslaught of attacks made possible by CaaS. Individuals with advanced knowledge of cybercrime protections must be ready to provide assistance to improve security protocols, minimize risk and ensure fast mitigation in the event of a breach.
