We are here to help you do the following:

NIST is the National Institute of Standards and Technology (U.S. Department of Commerce) has produced the NIST Cybersecurity Framework which helps businesses of all sizes better understand, manage, and reduce their cybersecurity risk and protect their networks and data. The areas of focus for businesses are Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond and Recover.

Identify: Make a list of all equipment, software, and data you use, including laptops, smartphones, tablets, and point-of-sale devices. Create and share a company cybersecurity policy that covers roles and responsibilities for employees, vendors and anyone else with access to sensitive data. Outline your plan to protect against an attack and limit the damage if one occurs.

Protect: Control who logs on to your network and uses your computers and other devices.

  • Use security software to protect data.
  • Encrypt sensitive data, at rest and in transit.
  • Conduct regular backups of data.
  • Update security software regularly, automating those updates if possible.
  • Have formal policies for safely disposing of electronic files and old devices.
  • Train staff using any computers, devices, and network(s) about cybersecurity.

Detect: Monitor your computers for unauthorized personnel access, devices (like USB drives), and software. Check your network for unauthorized users or connections.

Investigate any unusual activities on your network or by your staff.

Respond: Notifying customers, employees, and others whose data may be at risk. Keeping business operations up and running. Reporting the attack to law enforcement and other authorities. Investigating and containing an attack. Updating your cybersecurity policy and plan with lessons learned. Preparing for inadvertent events (like weather emergencies) that may put data at risk.

Recover: After an attack, repair and restore the equipment and parts of your network that were affected. Keep employees and customers informed of your response and recovery activities.
