Efficient planning important in keeping data safe

01/31/2013 | Security |

IT departments planning an overhaul of their web servers and data centers will need to plan the changes efficiently if they are to reduce the risk of a cyber attack striking the company. Businesses are increasingly concerned about the risks involved in becoming a victim of cybercrime, but there are a range of measures they can take to ensure they are protected.
 

Large scale responses have to be planned out in great detail so that in the event of an attack, mechanisms are in place to reduce the damage caused by the incident. Knowledge of procedures and information flows must be spread from the IT department throughout a firm, as this is crucial for fast and effective response to cybercrime.
 

Other factors involved in providing a level of protection against cyber attacks include up-to-date technical infrastructures, while tools are also critical for effective cooperation. These processes also have to be well-publicised, according to the findings of the recent Cyber Europe 2012 report, which is the largest ever pan-Europe cyber security exercise.
 

Some 339 organisations took part in the drafting of the report, totalling 571 individual players being exposed to thousands of incidents. The discoveries made in the research can lead to lessons being learned for companies that have been made victims of cybercrime in the past."Public–private cooperation structures differ among countries", the study noted, observing that a lack of consistency between public and private approaches to data protection on the national level sometimes resulting in additional difficulties.
 

It added challenges in crisis management decision making were faced by countries, while scalability of operational procedures was also found to be a problem because of the large number of nations taking part. One thing that may help cut the risk of cybercrime in the future is more pan-European and national cyber exercises, as these were noted to be necessary to improve cross-country cyber crisis cooperation.
 

Securing data centers and backing up vital information can play a key role in protecting companies from cybercrime, as these steps can ensure that losses sustained during such an attack are kept to a minimum.
