A Focus on Security

Cyber-attacks continue to rise dramatically, and many organizations are falling victim by not incorporating basic security practices to support their investments in IT security products and tools. Jolera has met this challenge head-on with our Secure IT family of products, which helps to mitigate and reduce the likelihood of successful attacks.

However, no one product or service can guarantee 100% protection from cyber attacks. It is the combination of technology, the implementation of best practises from a policy, implementation and management perspective, end-user education, vigilance and ongoing environment testing that can help to reduce the odds of a successful attack. Simply stated, successful cybersecurity requires the co-operation and collaboration of technology vendors, deployment and management teams, 3rd party service providers, customer IT departments and end-users.

Many industry best practice frameworks can help lead customers to a better security posture. Examples of very comprehensive frameworks include:

Jolera can assist customers in understanding these frameworks, including how best to adopt elements into their IT policies and processes. In addition, Jolera is mandating minimum security practices that should be adopted by all of our customers. Your Program Manager will be in touch with you to provide more details and assist you in meeting this mandate.

This mandate includes:

  • Systems (servers, laptops, desktops) must have a screen saver lock configured to 15mins idle lock.

 

  • Implementation of a complex password policy with expiration every 120 days.

 

  • Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) for all remote access technologies and Office 365.

 

  • A current anti-virus and anti-malware product must be installed on all end-user computing devices (laptops and desktops).
  • All server and desktop operating systems must have a patch management solution that either automatically updates devices on a predetermined schedule or have a manual customer-managed process to achieve the same.
  • All email accounts must have a spam/malware/anti-phishing activation on their email/mailbox to ensure the protection of your users’ day-to-day work.
  • 4-month minimum password resets for all administrative accounts.
  • All mission-critical servers and data must be protected by a backup solution that meets customer requirements for recovery time and data retention.
