Recently, Dan Wiley, who heads Check Point Software’s incident response and threat intelligence work shared five tips on improving your practice’s cybersecurity strategy. His tips were as follows:

Create a cybersecurity plan and test it. Don’t disillusion yourself into thinking you won’t have an incident because you will at some point.

Make sure your practice invests in security controls to protect against evolving threats.

Walk the delicate balancing act of managing security costs against the ticket for an incident.

Be prepared for the impact of a cybersecurity threat from a legal, media, and business impact point of view.

Develop a way to consume the intelligence you receive and make it actionable: context is the key to intelligence.
