Cultivating a Security Culture Within Your Organization
ARE YOU SAFE?
Cultivating a Security Culture To Protect All: What are your policies for onboarding and offboarding new employees? New devices? Remote points of access? New suppliers? New customers? With access comes vulnerability. Breaches are typically the result of small cracks in the armour, left exposed over time. And what about human error? What is the strategy to mitigate this inevitable risk?
Protection Through Business Transformation: The demands for seamless supplier connectivity and increased customer access are creating security vulnerabilities to the business that, if breached, can bring that same business to its knees. Add to that, the increased automation capabilities and subsequent data analytics required, there are more connections running on more data tunnels. Each time a device, a solution, or a communication connection is added, so to is another threat vulnerability.
Every operational decision requires a security dimension.
Multifaceted Approach: Are you protected at the edge? at your endpoints? At your data access points? How is your patch management handled? It’s easy to get caught up scheduling and testing urgent patches with known threats, but what about those low-level threat vulnerabilities; those non-urgent patches. How long do they remain unpatched and vulnerable? Do you have a dedicated Security Officer (in house or outsourced)? Is there someone dedicated to creating, deploying, and managing your security strategy while you manage the demands of the rest of the business?

ARE YOUR EMPLOYEES SAFE?
The expanded, disbanded, and remote workforce adjustments have created new habits and routines. Now more than ever, it is important to ensure your employees stay alert, aren’t easily fooled, aren’t taken as hostages, and have locked new doors and connections.
This cybersecurity training program is available online at no charge to the business. Lessons include additional free tips and tools to test the vigilance of your organization and help keep your data safe from human error and misjudgement.
ARE YOU SAFE? TEST YOUR BUSINESS.
You have strong data protection strategies in place, and you’ve worked hard to educate your employees. From your vantage point, your business must be safe – right?
The average time to identify and contain a penetrated attack is 280 days, and is costing businesses an average of $3.86M (USD).
The cost to test your strategy is a fraction of the cost (in time and money) of what a breach could cost your business; consider booking a WhiteHat cybersecurity proactive attack simulation. This simulation will cover penetration as well as scope of vulnerabilities.

While incidents have been closely tied to IT and security breaches, there are many instances where errors, failures, disruptions, and network instability occur that halt operations. Taking steps to improve vulnerability management, inventory operational technology, and create an IRP for Ops will create protocols to get your organization back to business – as fast and as safe as possible.
IT knows the value of Vulnerability Management activities, but that value isn’t always communicated effectively to Operations or the C-suite.
What if there was a translation guide?
A snapshot to show how the transfer of knowledge from Ops, added to effective ongoing management within IT, would mean tremendous value to the boardroom and the business as a whole?
GETTING OPS REPRESENTED IN YOUR ORGANIZAITON’S IRP
Your organization’s IT team likely has an Incident Response Plan and a Disaster Recovery Plan should the information networks grind to a halt. What about the production and operations technology?
This Asset Inventory Checklist identifies 21 assets and mechanisms across five major operational systems that must be considered.
Use this Asset Inventory Checklist to identify, inform, and engage with IT to ensure Operational Technology is represented in your organization’s IRP.
CREATE AN INCIDENT RESPONSE PLAN FOR OPS
Lifting from the NIST cybersecurity framework, the How to Build an Effective IRP for Operations Worksheet was created. Inside the worksheet are questions dedicated solely to Ops surrounding Prevent, Respond, and Recover.
In total, there are 20 checklist items with qualifying questions dedicated for Ops and production.
Use this worksheet to to build an effective IRP for Operations.
