Five Steps That Will Boost Your Cybersecurity And Assure Business Community In Real Life

 

The concept of business and marketing has seen a tremendous change for a few years. Business continuity meant protecting your company in times of crisis. However, it is about recovering from large scale cyberattacks as quickly as possible in the present times. These threats can include malware, phishing emails, DDoS attacks, ransomware, etc.


 
In recent times, there has been a rapid change in the field of cybersecurity too. It has now become a vital part of an organization's business continuity, in protecting employee data, intellectual property, operational plans, R&D, etc. Due to this, a question arises of 'how corporate and IT experts can work hand in hand' to protect an organization and promote its business. 

To achieve these goals, a simple five steps method, if followed, can ensure your organization's cybersecurity and prevent it from threats and cyberattacks. 

1. Prioritize: Threat intelligence should be acquired, and it should be prioritized to formulate a defense plan. Keep in mind that simulation attacks won't be much helpful as real-time attacks. Simulated attacks won't tell you the real strengths and weaknesses. This information helps experts identify the threats they must be more careful about and build a counter-testing testing plan. 

2. Measure: You should examine whether the measures you are taking to protect your business is helpful. If not, your preventive actions are ineffective. The plan should include analyzing threat adversaries and technical attacks, and how your people respond to it. 

3. Optimize: This step involves analyzing the gaps or barriers that you identified in the measuring stage. An effective business means overcoming these gaps and barriers. When the controls are optimized, the testing can then provide more measurable results that will make your security more robust. 

4. Rationalize: Is your investment in security measures proving beneficial or just a waste of money. With the help of testing data acquired after optimizing controls, the experts now know where to cut costs and invest more. It allows a business to save money while keeping the risk factor under control. 

5. Monitor: The final and most crucial step involves keeping a constant eye on changing the IT environment trends. There might come new challenges that your company might have to face; therefore, there should be a continuous evaluation of potential threats that might impact your business.

America Vs China! The USA Alleges Huawei to be a Technology Thief and Spy for China?


In view of recent reports, China and the US have taken their technology war to court. Now, the US firms allege that the telecom colossus, Huawei has been planning to rip them off of their technology for “decades”.

Hence, the American organizations decided to expand the premises of their lawsuit against the Chinese mega-company.

The prosecuting attorney mentioned that Huawei did indeed violate the terms of the contract with the companies of the US by stealing robot technology, trade secrets and such.

Per sources, Huawei has straightaway denied all the allegations and has cited that the US is merely threatened by the competition and hence are trying to run down the name of Huawei.

Per newspaper reports, the mega smartphone maker’s chief financial officer and the founder’s daughter are held captive in Canada, struggling against extradition.

According to sources, there are charges of fraud and “sanctions violations” on the founder’s daughter, which she has waved off and denied.

Huawei pretty strong-headedly is maintaining that this lawsuit and the charges on the company are trivial attempts at tarnishing the reputation of their company and attempts at depleting stakes of competition.

Per reports, the fresh accusations of the US against Huawei include trade secret embezzlement, racketeering and even sending spies to obtain confidential information.

Sources reveal, that the persecution attorney also said that Huawei with its stolen data cut both times and cost in the research and development for the company which helped it climb the steps faster than the others.

Per Huawei, the newer charges are just another way of bringing up older claims. Nevertheless, it doesn’t look like the US plan to withdraw their claims or the lawsuit in the near future or at all.

This technological rift has a strong possibility of transforming into a political dispute between America and China. The US is forcing countries like the UK to pull back their support from Huawei, continuing to say that the equipment could be used by China for spying.

Relations between China and the US are down a very flimsy and unpredictable road. All the same, the UK still continues its business ties with Huawei but with possible limits.
