The recent Soalrwinds cyber attack had a monumental effect on the cybersecurity world. To date, there are many organisations who were affected, including Microsoft. What can we learn from this event? As business owners, how can you minimise the impact of cyber attacks on your business?
Monitor Third Party Suppliers
As business cyber experts, our first recommendation to minimise cyber attacks is to monitor and watch your suppliers. Ultimately, when working with third-parties you will need to provide them with some level of access to your business. The first question to ask is what has your organisation done to reduce any potential impact from third parties? Then, as the CEO and business owner, what have you putt in place to reduce the potential impact of your suppliers?
By conducting a cyber audit and risk assessment of your business these potential risks can become predictable, but you must manage your risk well. There are certain things you can do to increase your business’s level of cyber security protection. A Cyber Security Audit reviews your setup against industry best practice and recognised Cyber Security standards so you know where you stand.
