Cybersecurity Layers

Learn how to protect your organization.

How do cybersecurity layers affect my organization?

When dealing with cyber threats, remember that hackers are often looking to exploit one thing — your valuable data.

To keep your organization and your customer’s data secure, it’s important to develop a layered approach to cybersecurity to reduce the possibility of an attack.

From developing and implementing cybersecurity policies and training programs to ensuring device, application, and network security, there are a number of different factors to incorporate into your strategy.

Overlooking even one component could leave your organization vulnerable.

Human Layer

The first layer focuses on how your employees interact with your systems and the steps they can take to safeguard their data.

It involves adopting holistic security practices, such as employing strong passwords, recognizing and thwarting phishing attempts, and knowing how to effectively respond to a security breach.

Data Security

This layer protects access to an application, its interaction with the system’s data, and its security. You can fortify this layer by installing the latest version of applications. By keeping applications up to date, you can avoid minor bugs and other potential security gaps.

Electric provides:

  • Rest easy with automatic daily backups for your Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace environments. These backups include daily snapshots of each employee’s data, allowing you to avoid data loss from ransomware or other events by restoring accounts to a designated point in time.
  • Complete, in-depth email security for Microsoft 365 and G-Suite. Scan every email (incoming, outgoing, and internal) with advanced AI-based anti-phishing software to immediately identify and neutralize phishing attempts and malware threats, ensuring threats don’t spread within your organization, your partners, or your customers.
  • Increase the security of your employee’s email accounts by enforcing multi-factor authentication (MFA) on their accounts, eliminating a single-password failure point, making it more difficult for an unauthorized person to access employee and organizational data.
