The organizations have to work for the best experience of the employees and provide them with foolproof security, for that a CSIRT plan is needed which make sure that employees are safe and company’s database is secure. The management support is always needed in order to cope with the security issues. The funding, resources and time is provided by the experts to enhance the security. The relevant information is gathered from all the employees and provide them a secure portal to access the company’s database. The virus scanners must be used so that there is no chance of phishing and faulty emails (Matthews, 2018). The awareness programs can also help in creating a stronger ecosystem where employees know what’s right and what’s wrong. The CSIRT system of company also includes the software’s that are reliable to use and which are secured from phishing. The techniques also includes the involvement of updated technology like block chain technology which secures the system like no other system in the world. The system must remain in direct communication with the CSIRT handling team and thus this stronger team can protect the system. There are examples of cyber-attacks in past where whole company’s database is been hijacked, so a secure backup system must be in placed to tackle this issue (Ruefle, 2007).
