Prevent Data Breaches

Although it is impossible to guarantee 100% protection against a data breach, certain tools and techniques can improve the security of your business. Using these tools can help reduce the likelihood of attacks, as well as mitigate the damage in the event of an incident.

Endpoint protection 

Endpoint security is another crucial element of an organization’s overall cybersecurity posture. Many organizations leverage endpoint detection and response (EDR) technology to help with protection of endpoints, such as servers, laptops, desktops, mobile devices, and more. An EDR tool is capable of quickly identifying many virus and malware variants, as well as automatically taking remediation actions, such as restoring unsafe files to an acceptable previous state.

To be effective, EDR technology must be operated by seasoned security professionals. That’s why a truly comprehensive EDR solution includes an embedded security operations center (SOC) that provides 24/7 monitoring and response services to help remediate issues. 

Data Breach Prevention with Clare Computer Solutions

Clare Computer Solutions delivers comprehensive data breach prevention through a range of endpoint protection, business continuity, and disaster recovery solutions.

Asset Discovery and Monitoring  

Unmanaged and unmonitored endpoints are prime targets for hackers because they’re more likely to be outdated and have vulnerabilities. When unidentified assets exist on a network without being accounted for, it can introduce operational and security risk.

Software Patching 

Once assets are identified, we monitor and manage them effectively. Keeping operating systems, software, and applications current and up to date can reduce the cybersecurity risk level of your business and its customers.

Regular Data Backups   

To minimize downtime and disruption after an incident, routinely backing up data is a must. However, you may need to manage different backup tools to meet the needs of all your clients. That’s where Clare Computer’s integrated business continuity disaster recovery (BCDR) solution comes in. Securing your backups has become crucial, so we make sure they are not connected to the computers and networks that they are backing up to keep them from becoming infected by ransomware.

We can identify vulnerabilities in your network and provide recommendations to improve your IT security.

 5 Steps for Rapid Ransomware Response

When you consider the possibility of ransomware affecting your business and its clients, you should think about it as a matter of when, not if. Better to anticipate a worst-case scenario than to be underprepared in the event of an incident.  

Your company can work with Clare Computer to develop an incident response plan that includes each team member’s role and responsibilities as well as goals that can be used to measure effective response to a ransomware attack.  

At a high level, here are the steps Clare Computer recommends for a quick ransomware response: 

Step #1: Identify the systems that have been infected by the ransomware. 

Step #2: Isolate the infection by disconnecting all infected computers from one another and the network.

Step #3: Use backup and disaster recovery (BDR) software to restore systems and data from backups by pulling information from before the network was infected by the ransomware.

Step #4: Review all the facts surrounding the ransomware attack and how it occurred so you can begin to put additional preventive measures in place. 

Step #5: File a report to the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) containing thorough details about the incident. Because more companies are utilizing BDR tools to restore infected systems, cybercriminals have upped the ante and are now threatening to publish data on the dark web if the ransom is not paid, as was the case in the Accenture attack.
