The internet is crucial for every business in today’s day in age. Whether it may be sending emails, making phone calls or searching Google for that perfect marketing company one thing is for certain… Anything can be a risk for your IT Infrastructure. For example, according to MarketWatch, an estimated one in every 10 American adults lost money in a phone scam in the past 12 months. Yes. 1 in 10 Americans. While according to SecurityWeek, 18.5 million websites are infected with malware at any given time. It’s almost like you’re playing Russian Roulette every time you click on a new link.
Threats can literally be anything that endangers your organization. Such as natural threats, such as earthquakes or floods; IT threats as mentioned above; Business threats, such as sour third-party vendors relations just to name a few.
The NYDFS Cybersecurity Regulation (23 NYCRR 500) requires every DFS financial charter to perform a risk assessment. Risk assessments are a fundamental part of ensuring your data is secure. Risk assessments help you understand where your sensitive data is, who has access to it and what changes are happening around it.
