In a comprehensive guide from leading IT provider Softcat, companies can learn about the value of establishing a robust cyber security strategy and how to prioritise their procedures to develop a concrete plan of action. By connecting the essential processes, policies, governance, technology and people required to reduce cyber vulnerability, the strategy guide details a clear path to a solid cyber defence.
The guide outlines the importance of understanding the exact nature of a business’s cyber threats and a realistic overview of the rate of adaptability. As part of a fully comprehensive approach, the guide goes on to demonstrate how to secure the supply chain:

  • Prioritisation of security actions – the first step towards improving computer security
  • Creating a tangible plan – developing a structure in order to make progress
  • Secure the supply chain – strengthen data sharing with partners and suppliers

Softcat cyber security experts, including Chief Technologist, Adam Louca, and Security Consultant, Alexander Lewis, helped to build the guide and share their experience in supporting businesses on their journey towards improved cyber security.
Recognising that every business has an ongoing checklist, Louca emphasises that in order to make meaningful progress, prioritising actions is vital. “I like to think of it as setting the rules of the game. You need to know how to play before you start”. By highlighting how he supports clients in the beginning stages, he goes on to explain how companies should work through their priorities one at a time in an order that creates the most significant impact and helps reduce the cost of cyber attacks.
Building upon this strategic approach, Lewis then dives into the next stage in the process – developing a tangible plan. Why ‘tangible’ specifically? “The aim is to craft a plan that you can really hang your hat off,” he explains, “a set of real actions that lead to real outcomes.”
