7 Security Mindsets to Protect Your Vital Business Assets

  • 7 Security Mindsets to Protect Your Vital Business Assets-

    Layer Security

    Layer security across your network.

    As the traditional idea of a network begins to change, layered security is only going to become more important. The SANS Institute reminds us that there is no such thing as a silver bullet, and it takes many technologies and processes to provide comprehensive risk and security management.

    These layers traditionally include:

    • An IPS and firewall at the perimeter
    • Antivirus protection at the endpoints
    • Smart switches and a SIEM to collect and monitor the data inside your network

    Never assume you are safe; instead, be proactive by developing comprehensive layers of protection and by continually checking your systems to adjust as needed.

Network security isn't just about devices or hardware. While it's easy to think that one tool will solve your security burden, the reality is that cyber criminals are determined to get into your network, steal data or disrupt performance.

By constantly evolving their methods, hackers often find new vulnerabilities to exploit. For that reason, the tool that works today will likely be much less effective tomorrow. And beyond that, every network is different. What might make sense for one might not make sense for another.

To help businesses learn to adopt lasting mindsets to keep their networks safe, David Lissberger, chief executive officer at Sentinel IPS, outlined seven strategies businesses must adopt as guiding principles when designing and building a network's architecture.
