Cybersecurity for the Under-Resourced

Jed Davis authored the article, "Cybersecurity for the Under-Resourced" for Bloomberg BNA. In the article, Davis dispels the misconception that only organizations wealthy enough to buy the newest technologies are in position substantially to improve their cybersecurity. "A successful cybersecurity improvement effort depends more on the willingness of an organization's leadership to revamp work procedures to reduce information technology-borne risk than on the resources the organization has to devote to the effort," Davis writes. Davis emphasizes that cost-effective measures available to nonprofits and other under-resourced entities  include making an "unflinching inventory" of what data they amass and what they can safely purge, honing realistic incident response plans, mandating security awareness training and contracting for at least intermittent vulnerability testing.
