The Goal Is Important Not the Security Itself

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

When it comes to network securities in every company, it is neither the software nor the tool that is the most important part in building safe and secure company network structure. It is the business security’s goal and the ones behind it that is important. The goal will be used as a springboard where network securities can place layer upon layer of security approaches, incident handling and defenses that are based on the risks a company might face.

We all know that when it comes to speaking about the risks in network securities, the risks that haunts every company is the looming threats floating both outside the company network as well as those inside in their company – poised to strike anytime. A company with a goal to protect their systems will carefully analyze and understand the possible threats that they might or eventually face. They can build and strengthen the many defenses they have against the threats and use it for their own good.

Recently, a group of renowned security experts concurred that abrilliant and executable company goal in building secure defenses is the most important challenge most businesses as well as the government has to have. Why? Because attackers are continuously evolving and without a goal companies as well as the government will become sitting ducks waiting to be hit by a bullet they haven’t seen. Goals will help network administrators of companies have at least a small degree of awareness in the situation in the company’s networks.

Even if the technologies companies used are the most advanced in any ways possible, it is important that they will layer experts, processes as well as the different sequence of events in the computer networks. When it comes to successful attacks, every attacker has to go through a series of events first. If the company can place layer upon layer of defenses together with the advanced technologies the company have, it can disrupt the series of events cyber attackers has to undergo in order to become successful. With this, experts can find the attacks and see what is happening within the virtual environment.

Before, security has been layered after the threats have already happened. Now businesses have realized the importance of bringing in security pros that can help them in building layers of defenses against the threats looming in the horizon. Unfortunately, many companies, industries and organization still believe that security is a thing not a property – security must have a goal as well as a process.

Unfortunately, the government is being left behind in the struggle against these threats, while different industries are improving way better than before. Because of this, the government is having troubles in battling the threats they are facing. Experts believe that before the industries can rely on the government to place regulations on network security, the government must first know what these threats area and how to face them properly. Because the government is still dumbfounded and ignorant about this sector in security, it is important that the government must learn from security experts as well as the different industries.

Stronger regulation will have a huge role in improving network security. Regulations can be used to place policies in how to handle the threats, put-up defenses and provide training to security and IT experts like incident handling training and others. Good thing that the government is already aware of that, especially after the Stuxnet related incident that happened in Estonia – they want to help, to do something within their power, but they don’t know how and what.

If you consider the malware infection statistics, it would indicate that some businesses still don’t know what to do about it. Security experts’ jobs are to think about these threats, while businesses and the government’s job are to consider the risk it involves. In short, security experts will have to explain the threat and companies and the government’s role is to manage the risks involved. If the companies and government will focus more on the threat instead of the risk, then it could possibly weaken the security efforts being done.

What is important is that they can perform incident response or stop the threats that could critically damage the important assets of the company and not stop all the threat¬¬¬¬¬s at all times.
