Security table stakes are the "bare minimum" security requirements every business needs to have. Businesses missing one or more of them are at risk for cyberattacks, financial loss, data loss, and the potential of going out of business due to an attack. Minimize the risk by implementing the following:

1. Onsite and offsite backups with validation

Backup software is a computer program used to perform a backup; they create supplementary exact copies of files, databases or entire computers. These programs may later use the supplementary copies to restore the original contents in the event of data loss.

2. Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) with IPS/IDS

A next-generation firewall is a part of the third generation of firewall technology, combining a traditional firewall with other network device filtering functions, such as an application firewall using in-line deep packet inspection, an intrusion prevention system.

3. Endpoint Protection Platform (EEP)

An endpoint protection platform (EPP) is a solution deployed on endpoint devices to prevent file-based malware attacks, detect malicious activity, and provide the investigation and remediation capabilities needed to respond to dynamic security incidents and alerts.

4. Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB)

A cloud access security broker is on-premises or cloud-based software that sits between cloud service users and cloud applications, and monitors all activity, and enforces security policies.

5. Managed Detection and Response (MDR)

MDR is an advanced managed security service that provides threat intelligence, threat hunting, security monitoring, incident analysis, and incident response.

6. Multi-factor Authentication (MFA)

Multi-factor authentication is an electronic authentication method in which a user is granted access to a website or application only after successfully presenting two or more pieces of evidence to an authentication mechanism: knowledge, possession, and inherence.
