We can help you 'Do Your Part. #BeCyberSmart'

Integrated Technology Systems empowers organizations to own their role in protecting their part of cyberspace and has helped businesses in the New York Tri-State area with IT Support & IT Consulting since 1994.

We are here to help you do the following:

  • Identifying and understanding which business assets are vulnerable to hackers
  • Learning how to protect those assets
  • Detecting when you have a problem
  • Responding quickly to minimize impact and implement an action plan
  • Creating a plan to recover after a breach to ensure business continuity

NIST is the National Institute of Standards and Technology (U.S. Department of Commerce) and has produced the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, which helps businesses of all sizes better understand, manage, and reduce their cybersecurity risk and protect their networks and data. The areas of focus for businesses are Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond and Recover.

This Framework provides a common language for understanding, managing, and expressing cybersecurity risk both internally and externally. It can be used to help identify and prioritize actions for reducing cybersecurity risk, and it is a tool for aligning policy, business, organization and technological approaches to managing that risk. It can be used to manage cybersecurity risk across entire organizations, or it can be focused on the delivery of critical services within an organization.

Identify: Make a list of all equipment, software, and data you use, including laptops, smartphones, tablets, and point-of-sale devices. Create and share a company cybersecurity policy that covers roles and responsibilities for employees, vendors and anyone else with access to sensitive data. Outline your plan to protect against an attack and limit the damage if one occurs.

Protect: Control who logs on to your network and uses your computers and other devices.

  • Use security software to protect data.
  • Encrypt sensitive data, at rest and in transit.
  • Conduct regular backups of data.
  • Update security software regularly, automating those updates if possible.
  • Have formal policies for safely disposing of electronic files and old devices.
  • Train staff using any computers, devices, and network(s) about cybersecurity.

Detect: Monitor your computers for unauthorized personnel access, devices (like USB drives), and software. Check your network for unauthorized users or connections. Investigate any unusual activities on your network or by your staff.

Respond: Notify customers, employees, and others whose data may be at risk. Keep business operations up and running. Report the attack to law enforcement and other authorities. Investigate and contain an attack. Update your cybersecurity policy and plan with lessons learned. Prepare for inadvertent events (like weather emergencies) that may put data at risk.
