In light of the recent cyber-attack on the HSE, it is understandable that you may have concerns about your digital security and your organisation's ability to defend against a similar attack.

Radius CEO Jerry Buckley comments, “While it is difficult and nearly impossible to protect against zero-day viruses and ransomware attacks, it is possible to ensure your staff are aware of what to do, and what not to do, your systems are configured correctly and as protected as possible”.

Radius recommends the following cyber security tips:

  1. Account security - Enforce the use of Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) on important online accounts. This involves having a code or token sent to the user’s mobile phone or authentication app at the time of login
  2. Staff Training - Educate employees on what to look out for in terms of phishing emails and monitor stolen credentials (staff logins and passwords)  belonging to the business domain on the Dark Web
  3. Keep IT Systems and Protection Up-to-date - Remember, there is no single silver bullet for protection, and a layered, defence-in-depth security model is essential. At a minimum, install a recommended anti-virus and ransomware protection software, and extend it to all endpoints (user’s pc’s) and servers
  4. Back-up Data - Keep regular backups of your most important and current data on an offline storage device. The standard recommendation for backups is to follow the 3-2-1 method: 3 copies of the data, using 2 different systems, 1 of which is offline
  5. Invest in Cloud Infrastructure - Prevent attackers from getting access to and disabling your security: choose an advanced solution with a cloud-hosted IT infrastructure with “Role-based Administration” to limit access rights
  6. Recovery Plan - Have an effective incident response plan in place and update it as needed
