Businesses storing sensitive data such as customers’ personal information or banking details need to be more attentive to cybersecurity.
It’s recommended to schedule a regular cybersecurity audit, including a basic check once a week and a more thorough one monthly.
The length of time between audits obviously depends on how big your organisation is. Other determining factors include the level of complexity of your systems and the type of information you hold.
The ideal way to make sure your cybersecurity is respecting best practices, is to invite an external consultant or auditor in to test it. Professionals in the field will be in the know about the most recent cyber attacks, as well as the most common software/hardware vulnerabilities when it comes to security.
