October is National Cybersecurity Awareness month. To mark the occasion, the Arizona Society of Certified Public Accountants (www.ascpa.com) published this article in its monthly newsletter, written by a member of Snell & Wilmer’s Cybersecurity, Data Protection and Privacy practice.
The article notes that although cybersecurity regulations continue to emerge and evolve, there are some established best practices that all organizations should consider adopting, including the following:
Conduct Periodic Assessments to Identify Threats and Vulnerabilities,
Develop a Cybersecurity Strategy to Prevent, Detect and Respond to Threats, and
Implement the Strategy Through Written Policies, Procedures and Regular Training.
