An EDR Checklist

cyber security tips

Being a great IT partner means staying ahead of the curve, and knowing how to protect against a threat before it becomes an issue. As cyber crime grows, your IT provider stays at the forefront and helps protect you from threats. Do you have an efficient EDR in place? Do you even know what that acronym stands for or what it does for your company’s overall security?

Understanding the terms is not easy, and you don’t have to be an expert, but you do need to know how to protect yourself in case something happens.

So we’ll start there — EDR stands for, “endpoint detection and response.” It’s a security measure that combines real-time monitoring with a collection of data to ensure that all threats are caught in real time.

Your Company’s Security

When was the last time you checked in with your provider? If it has been over six months, it’s time to reach out and ask some vital questions.

In our efforts to continue being Ridiculously Helpful, we developed a Quick Safety Check!

Six EDR Checklist Questions:

First, here are some questions you should be asking yourself:

  1. Do you have EDR?
  2. Is multi-factor authentication, or MFA, part of your daily security?
  3. Have you or your team completed Cyber Threat Training?
    • Are you confident someone in your office won’t click on “that” link?
  4. Do you have Cyber Insurance Compliance?
  5. Have you done Cyber Penetration Testing?
  6. When was your last Risk Assessment?
    • Is it documented?

If you answer YES to all of these then you can sleep more soundly at night.

If you didn’t, call your IT provider. Or better yet, call us. We can help walk you though the process. First, we will help you understand what you need to know and why. Then we can help develop a plan to get you moving in the right direction.
