The Linked MSP

5-Part Approach

We employ industry-leading tools and processes to direct and support our client’s cybersecurity strategies and plans. We start by following the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) guidelines, a 5-step Approach to Cybersecurity:

NIST developed this 5-step framework, in conjunction with several of the most sophisticated security organizations in the world. They created this framework in 2013, and the frameworks have been tested, reviewed, and revised since that time. The stated purposes of the NIST Cybersecurity framework are to:

  • Support the adherence to compliance requirements
  • Reduce the risk of attacks
  • Minimize the damage done when attacked
  • Maximize recovery and uptime

1. Identify

“Develop the organizational understanding to manage cybersecurity risk to systems, assets, data, and capabilities.”
- NIST

  • Identify and Control who has access to key business information
  • Conduct background checks
  • Require individual user accounts for each employee
  • Create policies and procedures for information security

2. Protect

“Develop and implement the appropriate safeguards to ensure delivery of critical infrastructure services.”
-NIST

  • Limit employee access to data and information
  • Install surge protectors and uninterruptible power supply (UPS)
  • Patch your operating systems and applications
  • Install and activate software and hardware firewalls on all your business networks
  • Secure your wireless access point and networks
  • Set up web and email filters
  • Use encryption for sensitive business information
  • Dispose of old computers and media safely
  • Train your employees

3. Detect

“Develop and implement the appropriate activities to identify the occurrence of a cybersecurity event.”
-NIST

  • Install and update anti-virus, spyware, and other malware programs
  • Maintain and monitor logs
  • Review anomalies and other events
  • Create and implement detection processes

4. Respond

“Develop and implement the appropriate activities to take action regarding a detected cybersecurity event.”
-NIST

  • Develop a plan for disasters and info security incidents
  • Communicate to key stakeholders immediately and completely
  • Mitigate impact of attacks
  • Develop and implement improvements

5. Recover

“Develop and implement the appropriate activities to maintain plans for resilience and to restore any capabilities or services that were impaired due to a cybersecurity event.”
-NIST

  • Make full backups of important business data/info
  • Make incremental backups of important business data/info
  • Consider cyber insurance
  • Make improvements to processes/procedures/tech

It's Not a question of  if 
you'll be threatend but  when 

You Can

Reduce Your Risk

According to the Online Trust Alliance (OTA), 93% of all breaches could have been prevented in the past year. But if these attacks happen, you will be asked: “What did you do to minimize the impact of the attack on your business and on your customers?”

How will you reply when you are asked what steps you took to minimize the impact of breaches? Will your answer be that you did nothing? Did you incorporate standards and best practices for cybersecurity? Do you really know WHAT you did? Did you take the right steps to avoid those breaches?

Linked MSP provides a broad range of services designed to ensure a high level of security for your network and your data.
