Proactive Security is Greater than Reactive Security

Security touches everything you do. It is interwoven into every layer of your network from policy and processes to software and hardware to educational practices and training. Buzzwords from news headlines, like malware, ransomware, and phishing scams can desensitize the importance of cybersecurity, but it doesn’t lessen the threat.

Understanding the cost of reputation versus the cost of implementation can determine how security is weighed in your business strategy.

You Have to Start Somewhere to Secure Your Network

The best place to start is a security assessment. Evaluating the strengths and weaknesses within your network will give you a great foundation to begin building and chipping away at your biggest threat to your smallest threat.

Security falls into 3 basic scenarios.

  • Hacked: Your firewall was breached after a malicious event.
  • Proactivity: Preventing a cyberattack before it happens is a priority.
  • Insurance: To qualify for cyber insurance, you need security technology.

Of the 3 categories, a proactive approach offers the lowest budget, whereas a reactive response (post-hack) will require the highest budget—9 times out of 10.

When your network is not flashing red from a virus or DDoS attack, cooler minds will prevail. You take your time implementing security measures and this helps to lower the overall spend. Downtime is expensive and recovery time is expensive. It’s a lose-lose situation. 

The upfront investment in a business continuity plan or disaster recovery plan can cut both of those expenditures in half.

One overarching challenge SMBs and service providers face is the cost associated with a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO). This position boils down to following best practices and maintaining security awareness, but it is difficult to retain the talent. A virtual CISO (or vCISO) gives you a team-based level of coverage.

No matter how you spin it, the implementation strategy will occur, either before the fact or after the fact with angry subscribers. Customers expect secure connectivity, and it has become implied that you are responsible for their data. Security is no longer just an option, it is required.

Put your free cash to work preventing and mitigating a problem without your subscribers ever knowing there was an issue, instead of writing big checks during crisis mode.
