With increased polarization, civil unrest, and the ongoing global pandemic, the risk of attacks on businesses and critical U.S. infrastructure has drastically increased. In addition, nation-states are devoting more resources toward exploiting Internet and business network vulnerabilities to cause economic, political, and military harm.
As recent events unfold, there is a greater risk of increased ransomware and other malware attacks in the United States and around the world. This makes it more important than ever for businesses and public sector entities to ramp up their cybersecurity vigilance.
The Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) recommends businesses take proactive measures to mitigate risks from foreign and domestic manipulation. Dynamic Quest encourages leaders in all organizations to review the following cybersecurity recommendations, assess their risk, and increase their resilience against sophisticated cyber-threats.

SOC/SIEM-as-a-Service. Security Incident Event Management (SIEM) is a system that monitors an IT environment to identify and analyze security events. A Security Operations Center (SOC) is a team and technology that looks at the security events picked up by SIEM and determines threat level and response. An MSP handling SOC/SIEM ensures that the system is up to date and providing the most protection possible.
Security Assessment. A Security Assessment reviews your environment to identify risks to the confidentiality, integrity, or availability of your critical business information. Your MSP will identify vulnerabilities and then recommend security controls.
Managed Firewall. Firewalls are network security devices that monitor all incoming and outgoing traffic and will deny data packets access to your network, based on rules set by your company. Crucially, however, firewalls must be actively managed by experts—to adapt to evolving threats and (often) to meet compliance requirements. An MSP regularly checks firewall performance to ensure security.
Security Governance. It’s important for companies to prioritize security efforts to ensure they are aligned with business goals. An MSP will work with you to plan and implement a security strategy with your company’s unique business objectives in mind. It includes training, reporting and accountability.
Regulatory Compliance Review. An MSP can ensure your company is in compliance with the ever-expanding regulations covering digital privacy. The service keeps up with developments in the regulatory environment, including (for example) HIPAA, PCI, CJIS, SOX and GDPR.
