The 5 quick wins for IT Security

A strong Cyber Security involves many overlapping systems. Each system relies on the other systems for added strength but can also stand alone.  Often the deployment of a full set of Critical Security Controls (CSC) is an expensive and time consuming undertaking. 

What can an IT manager with a limited budget and manpower do?

For a moment, I’ll neglect the obvious firewall and user training components. Below is my priority list for first steps in securing your company infrastructure:

1.      Application whitelisting

2.      Use of standard, secure system configurations

3.      Patch application software

4.      Patch system software

5.      Reduced number of users with administrative privileges
