Cybersecurity Considerations For Knoxville and Tri-Cities Businesses

When was the last time you reviewed your cyber security? Things can change very quickly regarding threats, hacks, and protections, so getting an up-to-date evaluation is probably a good idea. As you research cybersecurity services in Knoxville, the TriCities, or elsewhere in our region, here are a few critical things to consider.

CyberSecurity in Knoxville and Tri-Cities

1. Outsource to expert teams and partner with reliable vendors

Ensuring that you and your vendor are on the same page is critical to having a successful cybersecurity plan because it will mean that they listen to your needs and invest in your business. You vendor should be doing everything they can to minimize your exposure, including risks posed by the biggest threat to cybersecurity — your own employees. Having a systematic approach to onboarding and offboarding employees, as well as ways to help train your staff, is critical to an overall strategy.

2. Keep software updated

Always, always do the update — it’s usually the most advanced protection tool you have. A qualified cyber security team can also help make staying on top of updates easier. You’ll gain a lot of peace of mind having security professionals proactively monitoring your network and managing all your security updates and patches. And don’t forget about the management of your firewalls and Backup and Disaster Recovery (BDR) solutions.

3. Address issues immediately

Your operations and theirs are important. How does your business work, and how do you need to communicate, collaborate, and coordinate with your vendor partner? Some companies will force you to email all support requests in or enter them through their online portal. Others offer a phone call option. Be sure to ask how you communicate issues with them. Do you have remote locations and how do they communicate? These are some questions you should be asking.
