Checklist: True network and systems security requires starting with fundamentals
Cybersecurity demands and the stakes of failing to properly secure systems and networks are so great that many information technology security professionals are considering surrender. According to a recent survey and analysis conducted by ZDNet, information security professionals report being so overworked and correspondingly stressed that some 64% have considered leaving their jobs and some 63% have considered leaving the field entirely.
Ironically, the need for such services is almost universally predicted to increase, and there’s already a documented shortage of such expertise.
Where to start? Just what elements should be tracked and addressed when there are seemingly so many threats from so many directions?
That’s where a network and systems security checklist can help. If checklists can coordinate the complexities and manage the life-and-death risks associated with commercial flight, then they can also assist information security professionals in identifying and managing cyberthreats.
