The Cyber Security Implementation Checklist And Scorecard:
Interpreting Your Score:
90 Points Or Above: You’re A CyberSecurity ROCK STAR!
In fact, you should sleep like a baby every night knowing that your business is hardened from attacks and has engaged, knowledgeable, and careful staff.
70-89 Points: Pretty Damned Good!
It looks like you “get” security and are engaged at protecting your company and client data.. Keep improving and mastering the fundamentals with more aggressively and expanded implementation.
50-69 Points: You Have A LOT Of Room For Improvement
You’ve got some good fundamentals in place, but still lack a number of key things that will bring it all together. Kuddos for getting the fundamentals down, but remember your security is only as strong as your weakest link.
30-49 Points: You’re HURTIN’
UNLESS you’re just getting ramped up (meaning you’ve been in business for less than a year) you are operating and thinking like a TECH with a job, not an entrepreneur. It’s safe to guess you are not profitable, you work LONG hours for clients who don’t pay you very much or appreciate you and you have no stability in your business.
29 Points Or Below: Total Security Failure!
You are extremely vulnerable to total failure in your business security. You MUST get a handle on security to prevent disaster.. Please take action now to ensure you don’t have an business ending event.
