Rigid Bits Presented at the Trusted Choice Agents of Colorado 2019 Convention this week. We covered topics that can help a business start a new cybersecurity program.
If you’re facing compliance regulations or 3rd party vendor requests to confirm your cybersecurity program, where do you start? Rigid Bits presented our 30-day action plan and talked about utilizing a risk-based approach to meeting compliance requirements and achieving cybersecurity resilience.
Calculate risk to guide cybersecurity decision making
How do you calculate risk? Determine the likelihood of a negative cybersecurity event and consider how that event may impact the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of your data and systems. As well as the potential financial and reputational impacts a cyber attack may have. Need some help identifying and prioritizing your risks? Reach out and we can help.
Use a framework as a cybersecurity guide
Our 30-day action plan presentation was developed after we saw a strong need to help guide clients on how they can implement cybersecurity best practices. Also, we talked about having the right mindset to budget, plan, and practice due diligence and due care. We encouraged the attendees to find a solid cybersecurity framework to follow. We recommend the CIS 20 security controls framework to act as a guide for determining which cybersecurity controls to implement.
Finally, we also encouraged listeners to utilize a plan of action and milestones (POA&M) to track their progress.
