The term “cybersecurity” is commonly associated with the protection of digital data from theft or compromise by hackers. For enterprise customers, however, most data breaches aren’t the result of technology villains inventing new ways to do damage.
Instead, breaches are due to shortfalls in the development and enforcement of stringent security processes and protocols. This is why a good cybersecurity plan starts with a ground-up approach, including not only the technology and virtual security in place, but also very stringent physical security, backed by rigorously tested procedures and clearly defined business protocols.
The reality is that effective cybersecurity requires more than just a secure infrastructure and one-time installation of security processes. Cybersecurity requires ongoing attention to, and adjustment of, operational protocols and facilities management. The best strategy for ensuring it all: reliance on a data center with a strong and comprehensive mission-critical approach to business — including the support of experts whose sole focus is to collaborate with enterprise customers to enhance security and thwart cyberattacks.
