Is Your Business’s IT Infrastructure Vulnerable?

Published

on

No matter your company’s size, there is a lot of IT infrastructure to monitor.

Security was one of the top buzzwords for 2017. From ransomware attacks to data leaks, it’s apparent hackers are out there working hard, and consumers are feeling far more skeptical of data management.

Network and server administrators have to be on their game day in, day out, while criminals just have to find one tiny crack to exploit. Once they do, the lawsuits and expenses to fix the problem could put a medium or small company out of business.

According to Gartner, an IT research firm, 30 percent of Global 2000 companies will have been directly compromised by cybercriminals by 2020. Some large companies are going as far as hiring a chief information security officer (CISO) to combat this unrelenting enemy.

No matter your company’s size, there is a lot of IT infrastructure to monitor. The very idea of keeping it all secure it daunting. But many cyberattacks exploit unnoticed security vulnerabilities. Yahoo has been struck twice. Both times, lax security procedures were partly to blame. But there are steps you can (and must) take to stay ahead of the hackers.

Assess your infrastructure

Call it an assessment or an audit or a checkup. When was the last time you took stock of your resources and your risks? What about your security measures? Make it a goal to examine every aspect of IT. Steps to take in this regard include the following:

  • Make a list of all the data you could lose in an attack and put them in order of importance. Think like a hacker: What would someone want to steal? If they did, how would they do it?
  • Make a list of the programs that are run on all your assets.
  • Make sure you have a list of all hardware, including serial numbers and model numbers.
  • Wi-Fi is often a weak link. Check to see if yours is vulnerable to a KRACK attack.
  • Note which devices are connected to the network and when.
  • Do employees bring their own devices to work? If so, consider those as well. Are they using public email services (Gmail, Yahoo) in addition to the email programs you have installed?
  • What about team members who travel or are in the field? What devices do they have with them and what can they connect to that might be detrimental if lost?
  • Create a schedule for updating hardware and software, if you don’t already have one. You might have the software in place, but new releases and updates are what keep it secure.
  • Angry employees, contractors or vendors have been known to cause problems. List those who have access to sensitive information and implement a plan if one of them were to exploit you.

Preventing human errors

No human is perfect, and no matter how much you educate your team about phishing scams and secure passwords, someone will make a mistake. After all, scammers are always trying to look and sound more real. Some are even spoofing email addresses so it appears to come from someone within your company.

Your employees may assume the right protections are in place so that if an email does arrive, it must be legitimate. But human errors are the primary cause of most business cybersecurity attacks. Prevent these problems by

  • Reinforcing education. You can’t just have the IT talk with everyone once. Schedule regular training about phishing, malware and more. Make these mandatory.
  • Installing web filtering to block websites known to be malicious. (Browsers can’t protect from all of these.)
  • Requiring regular password changes. Just telling your team to change their passwords and make them strong isn’t enough. Make it mandatory. Either put it on the calendar or set up programs so that employees have no choice.
  • Creating security procedures and following through. Some cyberattacks occur when someone pretending to be an employee asks a “coworker” to help them out. Their urgent problem requires access to networks. Prevent this type of social engineering attack by putting procedures in place and enforcing them.

Along those lines, make sure team members know to lock away papers and not to leave documents in the printer or scanner. A pile of documents with your employees’ Social Security numbers on it could post just as much a problem as the list in Excel.

By

India, being one of the fastest growing economies in the world, is witnessing a digital revolution. PM Narendra Modi has trotted out numerous programs to promote Digital India, ensuring digital inclusion across the country. On this note, Amit Bhatnagar Diamond Power MD, has digitally-empowered his company, in the field of manufacturing power transmission equipment.

Diamond Power Infrastructure Ltd, also known as Dicabs, was the first Indian company to manufacture alloy conductors and proto-test HSHC (High Strength and High Conductivity) conductors. Today, Dicabs is the only company in India, which holds a BIS mark certification for alloy conductors.  It also complies with the ISI quality standards for manufacturing all types of conductors.

The Vadodara- based company has also established India’s headmost ‘continual horizontal lead extrusion facility’, along with the ‘aluminum corrugation facility’ for cables (66KV). Dicabs is also ranked at the fifth position in the world, for manufacturing extra high-voltage cables up to 550 KV.

The homegrown companies are getting new opportunities to grow, as the Centre has reduced imports in the segment. India is on a transformational spree, and will become a hub for technology and innovations in the coming years. The initiative has already received pledges from Diamond Power Infrastructure Ltd and other corporate ventures, with investments worth Rs 4.5 lakh crore. This figure is expected to surge as the ‘Make in India’ campaign gains momentum.

Amit Bhatnagar Diamond Power

Amit Bhatnagar believes that quality and technology go hand in hand. Being a technocrat, he has always supported technology by reining on state-of-the-art technology for all business operations.

His ability to sense, envision and adapt to change pertaining to technology has been the company’s key growth driver, since the initial years. “With India progressing on the path of innovation and technology, Dicabs would unremittingly partner its journey towards successful frontiers. Simultaneously, we would continue to adapt to as well as lead the change through proactive investments in technology,” says Amit Bhatnagar.
