There is NO Solution for Cyber Security… It is a Continuous Process!

Companies, Banks, Governments, NGOs, etc. keep on asking the same questions:

What is the best solution for Cyber Security? The best Hardware? The best Software? What is the best company in Cyber Security? Is there any Plug & Play Solution? Can we have a Zero-Day Attack Solution?

The simple answer to the above questions is NO! We must change our Mindset from treating Cyber Security as a purely technical problem because IT IS NOT!


How to deal with Cyber Security?

  • Cyber Security is not just a technical problem: Cybersecurity is also an economic, psychological, and human behavioral challenge, all rolled into one.
  • Cyber Security is a RISK: We must approach Cybersecurity the way we approach other risks.
  • A different set of rules governs cyberspace: The concepts of distance, borders, and proximity all operates differently in cyberspace compared to the physical world.
  • Cybersecurity is “New,” and we are still learning: No One can claim that he knows everything related to Cyber Security… Reading, updating yourself and adapting to changes are keys to familiarize the digital world.
  • Select a risk management framework that fits your organization: NIST Framework could be a start!
  • Take the time to implement your chosen framework fully: Don’t expect instant results!
  • Review implementation regularly: Like you are reviewing the implementation of a Firefighting Plan!

Three things to keep in mind:

  1. Training & Awareness is a MUST especially to fight Social Engineering.
  2. There is no Solution for Cyber Security… It is a Continuous Process!
  3. Cyber Security must be Proactive, not Reactive.

 Don’t let “Perfection” be the enemy of “Better than Before.”
