Your cyber-threats are Ray’s worry

Controlling cyber-threats with everything necessary – Proactive Network Audit, Regulatory Compliances, etc.

A study by the Ponemon Institute in 2017 concluded that more than 25 percent of data breaches globally were caused by negligent employees or contractors, while another 28 percent were due to system glitches, including both IT and business process failures. This means 53 percent of all global data breaches last year came from within organizations.

A few ways to combat these threats include –
Access Management, Employee Education and Internal Audits.

What’s their Need?

Enterprise IT networks are never static. Networks are dynamic entities; they continuously evolve, expand, change and morph.

Internal users bring their own devices to the network infrastructure or install software in their devices connected to the network. These activities can have drastic repercussions on the network and its security.

It is even more important if your business is in a regulated industry, such as BFSI (Banking & Finance), Insurance or Health Care where you may also have external auditors as part of your compliance.

For the modern enterprise of the day it is important that the CISO organization of IT administrators and Network administrators should be aware of the state of the network, hardware or software.

The recommended means to do this are audits.

The audits usually require the CISO organization to evaluate the hardware, software, data, and the users.

Difficulties to Achieve the Need

Network audits are carried out by IT professionals who are well-versed with different information systems of a firm and how they can be used to prevent the abuse of organizational resources.

IT systems play a direct role in the value of an organization’s business; therefore, improving them is a must. It involves evaluating the hardware, software, data, and the users.

The audits require the enterprise to have experts in IT, Network and Security domain who are well-versed with different information systems of a firm, the access layout, the compliance requirements and overall security implementation.

In addition, the dynamic and ever-changing structure of the network creates a situation wherein the audits can never be entirely conclusive. Hence, running the audits frequently is essential. The frequency of auditing depends on the nature of the business, the industry standards and government policies.

This is a daunting task if done manually even if the required expertise is available.

The Solution

It may uncover issues that you weren’t aware of before. But it’s always better to know because becoming aware of them can help you fix them before they can cause a major problem.
To solve this, an administrator needs to perform regular network auditing and monitor any changes to the preset baseline.
