What to look out for
Some indications that you may have a breach in cyber security include
- You get a ransomware message
- You get a fake antivirus message
- You have unwanted browser toolbars
- Your internet searches are redirected
- You see frequent, random popups
- You observe unexpected software install
- Antimalware, Task Manager or Registry Editor is disabled
- Confidential data has been leaked
- You observe strange network traffic patterns
- There are fluctuations in the performance of your key systems
The impact of any kind of catastrophe can be mitigated with a robust business continuity plan that enables the business to continue to trade albeit in a reduced capacity whilst the rest of the plan is executed.
This should include
1) A plan to continue to communicate with your employees and customers.
2) A plan to keep your technology functional and / or a method for manual operation.
3) A plan to ensure your operations are still effective for the critical elements.
4) The recovery plan has to have a timeline so your customers expectations can be managed.
5) Have clearly defined roles and responsibilities defined in the event of a catastrophe.
6) Ensure you have relationships with suppliers that are able to help in this kind of situation.
