What’s Your Company’s Cyber Security Strategy?

Why a Defence in Layers Approach is Key to Your Cyber Security

Malware, ransomware, insider threats … because the list of potential Cyber Security threats continues to grow, most experts agree, it’s not a matter of if your company will suffer from a cyber attack, it’s a matter of when. Insurance companies are taking note: they’re toughening their underwriting standards and charging more for cyber liability insurance. In an age when no two threats are exactly alike, it is important to understand that different cyber security threats call for different security measures.

That’s why you must take a Defense in Layers approach to protecting your data, including a solution that provides offline, removable storage in case your online data is attacked.

What Attacks You Should Be Checking For

Man-in-the-Middle Attacks

These attackers exploit network security vulnerabilities by inserting themselves between someone’s device and the network, thereby redirecting information to themselves rather than the legitimate destination.

Denial-of-Service Attacks

By flooding a system, server or network with traffic and requests, denial-of-service attacks can incapacitate a system or even take it completely offline, preventing it from fulfilling legitimate requests.

Social Engineering Attacks

In these attacks, the attacker uses social interaction and/or psychological manipulation to gain the trust of a human being, who then hands over login information or otherwise lets the attackers into the system.

Organizations should include several different types of data security technology tools, such as: Antivirus software Authentication/password security Encryption Firewalls Virtual private networks (VPNs) Multi-factor authentication Intrusion prevention software

Types of data Security

There’s no one solution that will protect against all forms of cyber attack. Rimage recommends organizations employ multiple types of data security to create a Defence in Layers security posture.

Industry Standard – Physical Controls, Administrative Tools, Technology
Rimage’s Solution focuses on the Technology Layer – Removable Data Storage, WORM Technology,

Chain of Custody, Backup & Recovery

Removable Data Storage

Offline, removable data management. Data is stored on CDs, DVDs, Blu-ray, USB or other offline media to keep it out of the hands of cyber criminals.

Chain of Custody

Chain of custody. Movement of data is tracked through its life-cycle to document each user that handles it.

WORM Technology

Write once, read many (WORM) technology. Data is written indelibly on removable management media so that it can be read any number of times, but never manipulated or changed.

Backup and Recovery

Air-gapped, offline backup and recovery. A copy of your data is kept offline and inaccessible from the internet so that cyber criminals can’t get to it.
