What is an Application and Network Security Policy?

Raise awareness and implement processes that will reduce the likelihood of cyber attacks succeeding against your company. Small and medium size businesses (SMBs) often consider themselves too small to be attacked. The reality is that cyber criminals will attack firms of any size.

The number of cyber security incidents and the resulting business disruption continues to escalate. Implementing antimalware and antivirus systems, blocking unnecessary access to devices and improving security awareness are best practice actions that must be taken to reduce cyber and information security risk.

Why is an Application and Network Security Policy important?

Avoid the cost and ramifications of a cyber attack. Simple changes can help to protect your company’s assets: 

  • Develop a robust application and network security policy; the stronger the policy, the harder it will be for a cyber attacker to strike.
  • Train employees on cybersecurity. Businesses should show their employees what to do, what to avoid and what to look out for.
