How can you protect lean security teams against cyber threats?

In today’s digital age, it’s no surprise that businesses are facing an ever-increasing number of cyber threats. Alarmingly, cybercriminals can penetrate 93 percent of company networks (betanews), so in reality, no business is immune to cyber-attacks, regardless of their size! However, in this article, we are going to focus on lean security teams, why they are an easier target for hackers, and how they can protect their businesses from these increasing threats.

What does it mean to have a lean security team?

To have a lean security team means having fewer people/resources within the team to handle the various security issues that can arise in the business. These issues can vary from protecting, detecting, responding, and patching vulnerabilities that arise. This can put significant pressure on the security team members and can make their job a lot more difficult, particularly when it comes to keeping up with the continually evolving cyber threats that are out there.

Budget is another concern and small businesses/security teams may not have the financial resources to feel fully protected and also be able to recover if they were to suffer a cyber attack. With attackers fully aware of these limitations that smaller-sized companies/IT teams encounter, it’s no wonder they are becoming more targeted in cyber-attacks.

Why stress-less security isn’t about the size of your team, but how you deploy it.

We aren’t here to depress you with all of the negative conations of working within lean IT teams. In fact, we are here to let you know that the size of the security team matters far less than the strategy that it deploys. What IS important is having the right tools and tactics – not a large number of staff or a massive budget.

How can you stay ahead of cyber attackers without straining your team?
