Many Saudi businesses and organizations have a reactive cybersecurity system in place, responding to a system crash, a hack, or a data breach. A better approach to IT infrastructural security, however, is being proactive so that threats can be eliminated and loopholes blocked before damage can be done to the system.
A security assessment involves analyzing the technology used in your organization or business, looking for any weaknesses that could be exploited by attackers, and providing recommendations about how you can improve your cyber security posture.
You may already have an email and endpoint security solution in place, but sometimes a small misconfiguration or overshadowed security gap could lead to catastrophic consequences. That’s where our free security assessment service comes in handy.
Ctelecoms can help you thoroughly analyze your organization’s security posture, giving you a holistic view of the current and potential threats (such as malware, malicious URLs, phishing, BEC messages…) harming your organization so you can effectively close your security gaps and block all current and future malicious activities. Here’s how it works:
Here are the top four benefits that a security assessment offers for your business:
The most obvious advantage of security assessments is that it boosts the security of your organization or business. A thorough security assessment will examine your system and find weaknesses that you may not have even known existed. Followed by fixing such problems and blocking any loophole. Not only can this procedure prevent your proprietary information from landing in bad hands, but it can also prevent you from losing all your data in case of system breakdown.
Many threats such as ransomware and viruses can result in a complete breakdown of your IT infrastructure, thereby crippling your business especially if it relies heavily on technology to run – which most Saudi organizations and businesses do these days. Regular security assessments will help prevent disasters such as these from happening, thereby saving you a fortune.
As a security assessment is being performed, you will find out where your weaknesses lie and how you can address them. You will also be enlightened on the preventative measures you should put in place. It is always wise to prevent an attack than waiting to react when a vulnerability is exploited. Forecasting where weakness may arise in the future and preparing for it now can save you a lot.
Routine security assessments help enlighten you and your staff on newer ways of safeguarding sensitive data and information. Sometimes, online habits of your employees can pose a security threat to your business. Your security assessment team can enlighten them on simple things that they can pay attention to when surfing online. A little extra attention is a positive thing and can help you detect a problem early before it becomes full blown.
Different systems and applications in your business may be secured in different ways. This inconsistency can bring confusion to your IT staff and can decrease your security in business. With a security assessment, all your applications and systems are updated to follow the same security protocols and use the same security software. This creates a consistent, reliable approach to security across the business and increases both effectiveness and efficiency of your IT department.
