Level 2 – Advanced Protection
Level 2 cybersecurity guarantees the protection of corporate networks against untargeted attacks, such as viruses transmitted to various email addresses, spoofing attacks, spamming, etc. In this example, attackers aim to steal any important information from any IP address. Vulnerable to known security flaws present in corporate networks.
Medium-sized businesses are prone to untargeted attacks. Such companies may neglect effective cyber security protections in their networks because they are not required to comply with regulatory regulations.
In addition to firewalls and antivirus software, the following items should be used to provide sophisticated network protection for a company:
Network partition, such as dividing the network into segments and connecting the segments with firewalls to prevent the movement of malicious code or other risks between segments. In addition, network segmentation requires the division of network assets that store company data from areas outside the organization (web servers, proxy servers), reducing the risk of data loss.
Email Security Refers to a range of procedures used to protect business information from cyberattacks that use email as an entry point (spyware, adware, etc.) (such as checking email for viruses, blocking spam, etc.). The terms intrusion detection (IDS) and intrusion prevention system (IPS) can detect potential security problems, record information about them, stop them before they propagate to other network settings, etc.
Businesses need information security experts to detect and manage cybersecurity risks, create security procedures and policies, and other tasks to maintain this level of network security. A business can establish its own information security department for these purposes or seek the help of a managed security service provider (MSSP).
Establishing a separate information security department incurs significant costs both in recruiting a skilled security force and purchasing the necessary hardware and software. Working with an MSSP is a more cost-effective option that enables the corporation to focus on its core operations. To manage the work with the MSSP, the organization will still need an internal security officer.
A carefully planned security strategy should include quarterly vulnerability assessments and annual penetration tests to detect, mitigate, and manage cybersecurity risks to manage the effectiveness of cybersecurity defenses. A company needs a cybersecurity strategy as it focuses on protecting the corporate network in view of employee BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) usage, widespread use of cloud computing, etc. It also gives clear instructions to staff members about appropriate behavior.
