Business and personal computer networks, as well, have unique security challenges, making it unwise to select an off-the-shelf protection tool and say “My problem’s solved.” It’s more intimate, shall we say, than that.
This advisory comes from Jack Hamm on the Dark Reading blog.
Hamm suggests a more “personalized” approach to an organization’s digital security needs. In this respect, newer businesses have an advantage over older ones in that they’re not so set in their ways of viewing things.
“Security isn’t easy,” he writes, “and none of us should add to that challenge with a bad security infrastructure. If you start by asking questions related to staffing and resources, risk tolerance and business change, you can begin to hone in on what security tools can best meet your unique network needs.”
In short, go into digital security matters, as all challenges, with your eyes open.
