FDA Cybersecurity Premarket Workshop

Cybersecurity threat mitigation professionals contend that the first step in producing an effective strategy is conducting a cybersecurity risk assessment. The purpose of this is to identify potential gaps in your organization’s security controls.

Additionally, your organization’s assets can be identified through a risk assessment, along with the security controls currently in place. A risk assessment can also help your IT security team identify vulnerabilities that could be exploited and which should be prioritized for remediation first.

Security ratings are a quick way to look at your company’s cybersecurity posture and that of your third-party vendors.

Minimizing your attack surface is another key part of cybersecurity threat mitigation. A business’s security posture and threat landscape can be identified by surveying all of its entry points, vulnerabilities, or sensitive information.

The attack surface of a company can be anything from firewalls, software updates, web applications, and employees. The proper interpretation of entry point intelligence can assist businesses to identify and reduce any vulnerabilities throughout their business.

Cybersecurity professionals believe the big problem is that far too many organizations still lack a cohesive cybersecurity threat mitigation strategy to reduce the overall risk or impact of a cybersecurity incident by establishing security policies and procedures.

Cybersecurity risk mitigation should have at least three components:

  • Prevention
  • Detection
  • Remediation

One key cybersecurity threat mitigation strategy is to monitor network traffic on a regular basis.

Cybersecurity risk can be effectively minimized through the use of proactive action. Every day, there are approximately 2,200 cybercrime attacks, necessitating constant monitoring of network traffic as well as an organization’s cybersecurity posture.

Rather than trying to manually detect and address emerging threats, using tools that provide a comprehensive picture of your IT ecosystem at any moment in time can provide a comprehensive view of your IT ecosystem.

Security personnel can then identify and deal with new threats in a timely manner.
