How Cybersecurity Is Similar to Home Security with Netsurion EventTracker

April 22, 2024
By Matthew Golda

Adequately protecting a business's infrastructure and data can be tough, especially with the ever-increasing and evolving threats out there. And with so many cybersecurity solutions out there, it can be difficult to know what to do. At MSEDP, we provide professional IT services to help protect your website and network. We will review your situation and come up with a game plan that satisfies every need.

The Similarities Between Home Security and Cybersecurity

One way to break down cybersecurity is to look at it like you would look at home security. Many of the same aspects and ideas coincide with these two elements. When breaking it down, there are three different ways to protect a home or business. Without all three in play, you are not fully protected from threats. The three critical areas for any home security plan are prevent, detect and respond. These ideas are simply universal when it comes to any sort of protection. Here is how those three ideas play out with home security in mind.

  1. PREVENT damage or theft from intruders gaining access.
  2. DETECT intruders, suspicious activity, or other dangerous elements.
  3. RESPOND by sounding alarms, calling authorities, or enacting self-defense.

These home security ideas apply perfectly to any cybersecurity plans. In a home security scenario, doors lock and lights automatically some on, which provides a level of prevention for intruders. However, that cannot be your only line of defense. If there is a break in, or attack, then you can have video cameras installed to see what is going on. Lastly, if you do not have any response to the break-in, then the attack can go on without limitations. So an alarm system to the authorities ensures action is taking place. This breakdown is exactly how cybersecurity measures work. Systems are installed to prevent online intruders. If those intruders break through, there are methods of detection to see what is exactly happening. And in the end, there needs to be a response to limit the damage.

When you turn to MSEDP, we ensure these three steps are handled properly. We will install the best software to prevent these attacks from happening, but will also have the right ways of quickly detecting these attacks and making sure our IT responds to limit any damage. Contact us today to get started.

How to Protect Your Business

Many people opt to go beyond your typical home security measures, which also applies to those business owners looking to keep their network and data safe. Every business should deploy a multi-layer cybersecurity strategy that includes prevention, detection, and response. Here are the ways in which you can protect your business when turning over your IT services to MSEDP.

Prevention: Firewalls, anti-virus, patching, and password management are all great forms of preventing online attacks. These aspects will not stop every attacker, but with the right prevention methods in place, you can drastically limit the opportunities. Ultimately putting your network and data in a safer spot.

Detection: When there is a security incident, there needs to be the right detection methods to catch it. SIEM, log monitoring, and intrusion detection systems can be ably installed by our team to help quickly detect any and all attacks on your network. Ensuring that the response time is speedy and knows exactly where to look.

Quick detection is one thing, but not having adequate responses to an attack or having any delay can land major repercussions. Every cybersecurity solution should include automated threat remediation and be backed up by a 24/7 security team to ensure proper recourse is taken.
