The Generals - Fall/Winter 2016 - 43

Aon Risk Solutions Cyber Best Practices * Maintain a schedule for updating your operating systems the same way as you would schedule any other regular maintenance at your company. This should include browser, anti-virus, and other critical software updates. Regularly ensure that all security patches are installed as required. * Develop a cyber breach response plan and identify the third party service providers that will be used to address the breach and mitigate any potential damages. * Include your IT systems in any business continuity plan. * Do an annual review of your IT security system and consider whether changes, upgrades or outsourcing to third party service providers is required. * Establish policies and procedures around the collection, storage, and use of confidential information and make them known to all employees within the company. Take steps to review compliance and enforce the policies and procedures. * Limit access to confidential information to key people, when possible. Make sure secure areas really are secure. * Educate employees about cyber risk, including how to practise safe internet usage and understanding the signs of cyber scams. Sharing examples of real life scenarios can help your team understand what they are guarding against and why senior management is taking these necessary steps. * Have staff secure their workstations and removable technology (i.e. laptops) when they are not using their devices. Also, consider policies and procedures around mobile devices, including situations where staff are bringing their own personal mobile device to work or are travelling with company computers or mobile devices (i.e. logging in remotely to the company system and being able to use their devices with public wifi). * Back-up important information regularly. Consider where the back-up is stored, as many companies prefer to have back-up information stored off-site or with a third-party storage service provider. What makes sense for your firm? Back-up data should be tested on occasion to make sure it is in good condition and able to work if required. * Know and understand your cyber risk exposures. What risks can you handle and deal with internally if you are breached? What costs and time delays would you have to deal with if you had a security breach or your records were tampered with/held hostage? What products are available that may be required to help with costs if you are compromised? Can you transfer this risk in some way and does that make sense for your company? * Encryption is something that is being used more often and may be the next logical step. Looking at your operation, are people taking work home on a memory stick and then plugging that stick into your system? What policies do you have in place for that? What happens if you do get a virus as a result? Educating employees as well as restricting certain behaviors can help to effectively prevent problems before they arise. * Change passwords regularly. Install software that requires this or simply make it part of your policy (i.e. on the first of the month you must change your password). This is a simple step but can be very helpful in reducing fraud. Make sure staff are not leaving their passwords in a spot that is easy to find. * If you are about to terminate an employee, make arrangements in advance to block the employee's access to prevent any deletion, alteration or theft of confidential information. Sabotage has occurred from disgruntled ex-employees who were not denied access before termination occurred. Risk. Reinsurance. Human Resources. Fall/Winter 2016 43
