It is natural that you want all the best for your company. You do everything to protect it, however sometimes the familiar, slightly out of date methods are the ones that are stopping you from achieving your goal. You want to protect data, information and company strategies from the outside world, and you also want to eliminate risks as much as possible.
However, there are always steps for improvement when it comes to online security and sticking to your own methods might not be helpful after all.
It is useful to step back from time to time and check if you are doing everything in your power to sustain security for your business. To help you in this process, today we brought you a list to check if you are doing the right thing.
1. Are you setting unacceptable standards?
Whether we are talking about too high, or too low standards that are set, it is important to evaluate them from time to time. On the one hand, security comes down to the standards that are defined in the long run. It is important to recognize that neither too much perfection nor too much simplicity will be a road to follow.
Many companies are committed to an ideal vision of a solution, which is often not parallel to what they need in reality. What’s worse, some of these companies will actively find issues with an entirely workable solution, prolonging the process. This can have the effect of creating organizational paralysis among the workforces. As a lack of movement toward change is present in the business, it very difficult to enact any change, whether it’s to the company’s security.
2. Are you waiting too much?
Many business owners tend to wait a lot before starting a project where security is involved. They might want to doublecheck data that supports the proposed idea or want to have a wider comparison before starting anything. However, this means that the company is staying vulnerable for a prolonged time that is a high risk for the ongoing businesses and projects.
There is never a perfect time to start a new security project, something will always be in the way of it, so you need to accept it, and get something workable in place before the worst happens. After all, you can always continue to improve upon things.
3. Do you have right priorities?
It is natural that you want to be prepared for everything. However, this can result in getting lost in the details, while resources are being used for the wrong tasks. To counter this, there needs to be a frank and pragmatic look at your particular situation. Weighing your security risks should follow a simple scheme, which requires a resistance to the reaction of fixing everything immediately.
