Unfortunately a lot of businesses still handle the issue of network security with carelessness.
Over the past years we found out, that the amount of these business is steadily increasing. We could also reveal that the reason for this is not
a matter of money, lazy behaviour or even missing technical resources or knowledge! Indeed we'd been shocked that the reason
for a lack of paying attention to network security issues is simply to wrong information.
Even in mid-size enterprises people believe they are safe and sound on their computers because they enabled the firewall
and have installed a virus protection software from a third party vendor that even performs auto-updates frequently.
But what is the reason that makes people thinking the wrong way?
The very first reason for the above is found in the media and spread advertisements from security software vendors. They make the people fall
for their product by promising an instance of 100% peace of mind and cutting costs of thousands of Pounds when buying their product.
The second reason is ironically based in the first reason: People wrongly believe, that the matter of network security starts on a single
In fact, it does not! If a perpetrator can be logged on the network interface of a workstation inside of a company's private network,
than it is too late!

An official estimation has tragically revealed:
Of companies that suffered a major loss of business critical data due to an incident:
43% never reopen
51% close within 2 years after the incident
6% only are able to sustain in business
Business Continuity Planning (BCP) and Disaster Recovery Planning (DRP) is preparing your company for the unthinkable, the unexpected and how to get over it.
But honestly: Are events such as: Flood, Fire, Earthquakes, War, Civil Unrest and even Acts of God really so unthinkable to make them
unexpected to us? Surely they are not!
BCP is aligned to determine an organisation's hard and soft assets to protect them from threats or other impacts. For instance the organisation is already
stricken by an impact, BCP consists of methods, practices, measurements, assessments, investigations and comes up with concepts how to keep the business operational.
In general, to explain the means and the importance of a BCP: In order to produce goods or services (economical business output) an organisation has assets, such as
IT equipment, plants, real estates and even staff. All the counted assets are exposed to different types of threats whilst the threats have also a different impact
to the assets and the organisations's ability to maintain its business operations. Its to BCP to determine assets, its threats and assess all the impacts interfering
assets and business operation.
DRP is kind of a subset of BCP and is focused on how to restore business operation after an impact. DRP includes strategies, policies and control measures
such as: data backup procedures, fail-over solutions, redundancy.
As the IT and especially computer data have become increasingly critical to a permanent business operation over the past years, DRP today is more focused on
procedures and concepts to restore the organisations's IT infrastructure. But indeed DRP consists also of strategies regarding real estates, staff, and other
business equipment and resources.

stricken business operational after an unexpected impact and how to restore it.

We all know that it is quite far beyond our human abilities to monitor everyone and everything and apply proper corrective action instantly.
We also know, that justice can't be all around on the spot whenever we need it.
Clearly, even the best equipment coupled with a 24x7 monitoring does'nt guarantee at all to be 100% immune from cyber crimes. The latter becomes even
more interesting and complicated when considering and also following domestic law upon that in addition are to be determined all the issues
of what, how, and when a monitoring against an organisation's staff' activities is allowed to take place.
Several investigations concluded with the result, that in most of the cases the committed crime originated from inside of the organisation:
Either committed from own staff or in an act of revenge from released employees.
But sadly, of the bad news the above is not good enough by half! Companies stricken by a crime often face among the chaos and disaster another,
fairly unexpected fact: Public authorities e. g. prosecutors, police departments (even specialised ones!) and judges are far from having either
the skill or the knowledge to comprise the full scope and real disaster and its means for the organisation concerned!
An appropriate and fast incident response by public authorities is rarely seen. This is not at all to that they don't have proper
trained and skilled officers! They have, but much to less of them and they are completely overloaded with work and thus, the story ends up in assigning
lesser trained personnel to the investigation which turn the disaster from bad to worse.
Indeed there's a lot to do when the worst became true - but much less to prevent from it. Anyway, the very first hours after a committed crime are
not only the most important ones but they are crucial for the final outcome of the upcoming investigation.
