When it comes to cyber security systems like the ones provided by Fortinet, organizations must know what they are signing up for and how they are protected, yet many organizations lack the knowledge and tools necessary to confidently protect themselves.

Effective security practices can:

  • Protect your IT resources from theft and unauthorized access
  • Prevent your staff from inadvertently or intentionally disclosing confidential or sensitive information
  • Track and protect data at every level to prevent compromise

NLP and analytics tools can help you optimize and direct your efforts to drive better data security outcomes. But where should you start? We answer these questions and more in our definitive guide to digital security strategy:

Why It’s Important

By knowing how your organization is made up, you can take action to make it more secure. Whether you’re a small to medium-sized enterprise looking to protect the sensitive assets and data of your business, or you have large, sophisticated operations that may require continued guidance and attention, a strategic strategy that incorporates a large-scale penetration test is essential.

Risk-Based Security

You can’t maintain a level of security without risk. Organizations without a risk-based security plan have no assurance that there are no threats and therefore no basis for prioritizing their resources.

Developing a risk-based security plan is not only a valuable data security exercise, but it is an effective way to organize and prioritize your data security planning process.

The following are some additional benefits of a risk-based security plan:

Increases efficiency by reducing overhead in security review, analysis, and acquisition processes.

Helps your organization understand your risks and the associated risk-mitigating measures.

Risks are explained and quantified with relative clarity.

Managing your resources effectively reduces operations risks and enables a more focused and productive approach.

Reduces the number of times security awareness and controls must be reviewed, audits, and audited to identify and address any potential exposures.

Protects you from false positive notifications and compromises to your security plans.

How It Works

Just like the name implies, a risk-based security plan (or RBS plan) presents your organization with an agreed upon baseline of risk. This baseline is then used to develop and evaluate a risk-based security plan. In effect, the risk-based security plan is a structure or matrix that defines both the organization’s risk tolerance and the security posture, which encompasses and measures the potential impact of incidents and threats. Using the following steps, a network breach can be remediated, software vulnerabilities can be addressed, and security control personnel can mitigate the impact of both.
