People try to ignore ‘best practices’ when it comes to cloud security, but it’s a mistake they should never make. According to a new report by the Defence Signals Directorate, following the top four recommended best practices could help companies and organizations avoid 70% of the cyber intrusions they’re experiencing.
Best practices can help reduce the threats imposed by cyber intruders significantly. The cyber security strategy guide is well worth the read for anyone interested in security. Many of these strategies are being implemented by cloud-based rule systems, that are replacing traditional offline assets around the world.
Implementation recommendations like this are important to read because they point out all of the different strategies you can take to secure network, email, and data. Fortunately for businesses and organizations, ALL of these features are already implemented in secure communication services suites which can lock down your network, including email, web, and mobile.

Making sure that data protection policies are in place and using cloud email security, URL content filtering, and mobile device security can result in your company saving a fortune in litigation or compliance costs.
