Network Security: Balancing Risk Vs. the Costs of Resources

Posted by Susan Sison on Jun 6, 2016 10:30:39 AM

The world of IT security is getting more complex. Experts estimate cybercrime costs U.S. enterprises an average of $15 million annually. The total global cost of cybercrime is expected to reach more than $2 trillion by 2019. Businesses of any size and industry can be targeted – in the vast majority of cases, monetary gain is the only motivating factor. With that in mind, any and every business needs to have a robust data security plan in place.Risk IT security

Risk is a Constant – But You Can Be Prepared for Common Risks

When it comes to IT security, the risk of an attack can never be fully eliminated. Instead, balancing risk vs. the costs of resources is essential. Every asset, whether it’s a terminal, a server, or an individual file, has value to your enterprise and will represent a loss if compromised.

A well-designed security plan protects sensitive assets at a reasonable cost – defending your key resources against probable risks without adding too much to overhead. It also helps you quantify technology assets and measure their relative value.

Improved Reporting & Compliance

Compliance-driven industries demand clarity on your security processes and procedures. No matter how challenging your standards, you’ll be ready for anything thanks to NCA reporting and data visualization tools – whether dealing with an external audit or internal board demands

Greater Efficiency and Resource Use

We all know that not all time spent on the corporate network is put to good use. With proactive monitoring, you’ll be able to pinpoint specific employee behaviors that could result in risk – anything from simple “goofing off” to flouting important software security policies.

Strategic Flexibility for Your Network

Even in today’s world of extensible cloud networks, technology resources aren’t infinite. When IT assets are committed to one major project, other priorities often fall short. Improved security helps you accelerate project timelines, conserve resources, and take a balanced approach.

Cutting-Edge Security Automation

Whether you have a 100-person IT team or just one, applying their skills to your most important projects and programs is essential. Innovative security automation allows a single individual to do the work of many, leaving more time than ever to focus on other strategic goals.
