Transcript of the video:

To initiate a cybersecurity program, there are five basic tasks that your company must complete as soon as possible.

1. Define Your Boundary

A boundary serves as the protective shield around an information asset, such as the vulnerable data that you would store on a local hard drive or cloud server. A boundary must be established for each type of transferable data from all conceivable points of transfer.

2. Define Your Software Environment

You must define the purpose and policies regarding each type of software used within your company’s computer system. If a software program is out of date or serves no purpose, it should be removed. Defining the environment lets you determine what types of software can and cannot come into contact with your company’s network.

3. Harden Your Network Assets

Each component within the system must be inspected and tested for its strength and vulnerability. If a third party could compromise a particular device, it needs to be reprogrammed or removed from the system.

4. Assess Vulnerability, and Implement a Remediation Plan

To minimize potential vulnerability in your system, you need to have a management and remediation plan that can be implemented at a moment’s notice. The minute a security risk or system hole is discovered, your team should be prepared to patch things up as quickly as possible.

5. Review “Administrative Access Privileges” Across the Company

Administrative access is the entrance point most sought after by hackers and cyber thieves. Therefore, it is crucial to review the current administrative access privileges and determine which staff members actually should have this type of access.

In summary, the five tasks you must complete now for Cybersecurity are:

1. Define Your Boundary
2. Define Your Software Environment
3. Harden Your Network Assets
4. Assess Vulnerability and Implement a Remediation Plan
5. Review Administrative Access Privileges Across the Company
