Cybersecurity – A CRITICAL Business Activity that Involves EVERYONE

Cybersecurity is a critical business activity that involves all employees, contractors, suppliers, and stakeholders. Cybersecurity is not something that can be done once and then forgotten. It is an ongoing activity that includes continuous assessment, monitoring, improvement, and adaptation.

The Cyber Secure Dashboard was designed to simplify this process by providing the resources, knowledge base, and tools necessary to develop and manage the cybersecurity practices of small businesses, large corporations, and entire supply chains.

5 Functions of Cyber Security

The cybersecurity process as defined by the National Institute of Science and Technology consists of these five functions:

  1. Identify your information system assets and understand the cybersecurity risks
  2. Protect your systems and implement appropriate safeguards
  3. Detect cybersecurity events
  4. Respond to cybersecurity events
  5. Recover from an event and restore capabilities and services

Although the cybersecurity process is substantial and time consuming, the Cyber Secure Dashboard makes it understandable and easy for everyone to fulfill their role in safeguarding their organization’s, and our nation’s, critical assets.

Standards Based Cybersecurity

Effective cybersecurity is a process-based practice that includes understanding, executing, and validating what needs to be done. The Cyber Secure Dashboard is built on government and industry standards, such as the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC), and provides the tools, resources, and knowledge-base to effectively manage the cybersecurity of organizations as well as entire supply chains.
