The cyber-attacks have disrupted the IT world, and it is no surprise that people want to get on with their day.
But it can be difficult to know exactly how to handle a fleet of employees and customers that have all become targets of hackers.
As the global economic crisis enters its final stages, many businesses are struggling to manage the fallout of the cyberattacks.
While IT teams are able to cope with the disruption of their networks, they have not been able to adapt to the changing demands of modern business.
There are two ways to handle the cyberattack: shut down and shut down again.
Cyber-security experts have said the most effective way to deal with a cyberattack is to shut down, meaning employees are not allowed to use their computers.
“If you shut down your system and people cannot access it, then that will make you vulnerable,” says Peter Van der Heijden, head of cybersecurity at cybersecurity software company Securify.
When that happens, employees need to stay home.
That is where the IT team needs to be.
In many companies, IT teams work from home to stay up to date with what the IT industry is doing.
This is because IT teams cannot keep track of the IT infrastructure that powers their businesses and they can’t do what they need to do when a disaster strikes.
“In a situation where people are not able to access their network, the IT staff cannot access their networks,” says Van der Sheijden.
“So the IT department needs to work with its staff to ensure that their network is secure.”
How to manage a fleet at a high levelIf you have a fleet and you are managing it well, you will not need to worry about shutting down or shutting down again, says Mark McAfee, founder of cyber-security firm McAfee.
Instead, McAfee recommends that you create a plan that keeps the fleet operating in an emergency.
Your fleet should not be on lockdown.
Instead, it should be in the same configuration as it was when it was launched, so it will be ready to respond to any future threat.
The IT team must be able to work together to ensure the IT fleet is secure.
The best way to keep the fleet running is to make sure that the IT services are running in a way that can withstand a cyber-event, says Van Der Heijder.
In the event of a cyber attack, the best way for the IT company to keep its IT infrastructure from becoming vulnerable is to reboot it.
If the IT equipment is in the middle of a reboot, the system can be rebooted in a few minutes, so your IT team is protected from any potential damage.
“When your IT systems are up and running, the most important thing is not to reboot them, but to keep them operational,” says McAfee and his team.
“If your IT equipment gets in a rebooted state, the worst that can happen is that your IT infrastructure becomes vulnerable to an attack.”
In addition, your IT staff should have access to all of the system backups you have in place.
All of the backup files that you have on your server and other locations will be available if you have to reinstall the system.
The best place to start a cyber security plan is with a team-based exercise, McGlenn says.
Then, you can review what you have done and what you need to get right.
Once you have set up a plan, you should create a team that works together to deliver on it.
“The team needs a clear vision, a clear purpose, and they need an ability to deliver,” says Visser.
He says that you should have a clear strategy, so the team can plan how they will deliver it.
The plan should include the following points:What is your IT department’s IT security strategy?
What is the risk you face?
What will you be able and willing to do to protect your business?
What are the IT resources you have available to deal effectively with the cyber threat?
What can you do to ensure your IT assets are safe and secure?
What do you need your IT departments to do in order to keep their systems up to speed?
What does your IT group need to know about how they are handling the IT security environment?
If you are not prepared for a cyber event, the next best thing you can do is to start thinking about the cyber security risk.
You can then look at the threats you face and decide how to address them.
What you should do is create a contingency plan.
“Make sure that you know how you are going to deal and how you will react if something does happen,” says Fergusson.
A contingency plan is a way to get you ready for the worst and to set you up for success, says Foden.
McAfee recommends creating a contingency-planning document.
