Cyber crime prevention helped by security cycle states Computacenter

In order to help the prevention of cyber crime towards a business, organisations must understand the true end-to-end visibility of the security cycle states Computacenter.

Organisations must detect, block, and remediate security risks faster than ever. Computacenter has published a new report, titled ‘Close the Security Gap with a Unified Approach’, which explores how organisations can maximise protection throughout the security cycle.

According to the Center for Strategic and International Studies, cyber crime costs $300bn globally. With these relentless cyber threats emerging, organisations must grasp the true end-to-end visibility of the security cycle.

It is important to ensure improvements are focused in the correct areas. Organisations must understand where they are and where they want to be with their security position, such as auditing and assessing their situation.

With security no longer constrained by any perimeter, these activities must encompass a wide range of risks across a wide range of end-points. Given such complexity, it’s not surprising that a quarter of organisations have never carried out any form of security risk assessment.

It helps to work with an external partner to simplify, accelerate, and close any gaps within the assessment process. Security assessments should span each stage of the attack cycle – before, during and after – and pinpoint areas for improvement.
