When all else is said and done, you and all the other people in your company are often the last line of defense when it comes to protecting your company from cybersecurity threats. Sound Cybersecurity will work with everyone in your company to assess and test their cybersecurity awareness, as well as provide ongoing awareness training.
It is very important to keep the hardware and software that make up the technology stack in your company up to date. Outdated hardware and software can present unwanted threats, even for companies that are very vigilant about cybersecurity. Sound Cybersecurity will keep you and your existing IT team informed when it’s time to replace outdated technology.
A good firewall and antivirus software are no longer adequate when it comes to protecting your company from cybersecurity threats. The list of items in a good security stack is far lengthier these days. Sound Cybersecurity will work with you and your existing IT team to partner with industry-leading companies to provide services that will fill the gaps in your cyber defenses and improve your cybersecurity posture.
Even with the best technology and security stacks in place, how they are used is just as important as having them. Sound Cybersecurity will work with you and your existing IT team to create and document industry-standard IT policies, as well as provide resources to help you create and follow the procedures necessary to comply with those policies.
Even when you’re doing all you can to minimize cybersecurity threats, especially given the ever-changing landscape and regular discovery of new threats, cyber liability insurance is a must-have, just in case all else fails. Sound Cybersecurity will work with you and your existing IT team to help your company prepare to obtain favorable rates from industry-leading cyber liability insurance companies.
Who’s managing your DMARC?
Many people realize that it’s possible for a hacker to impersonate them by using their name and email address. They do that to initiate spear phishing and business email compromise attacks, which according to the FBI, have been the leading cause of financial losses for businesses from 2015 through 2021. In 2022, it was second only to investment fraud. However, most people don’t know that there is a way to stop that. It’s called DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting, and Conformance) and it not only improves your email security, but it also improves the deliverability of all your legitimate emails messages as well.
If you’d like to know where your company stands regarding DMARC, please feel free to use the domain scanner below to scan your domain name. If you find things aren’t as secure as you hoped, please complete our contact form and we will be in touch with you soon to discuss our Sound DMARC service. For less than what you would pay for a DIY DMARC service, Sound Cybersecurity will be happy to manage DMARC for you.
