Proactive is, I think, the keyword. You need to be able to have anti-spam built into the very infrastructure of your company and have it a priority that gets reviewed and updated regularly in order to keep attacks at a minimum, and successful attacks as close to zero as possible. Adopting a more secure approach after an attack is effective as well, sure, but then the damage has already been done to your systems, data, and reputation.

You can never say it won’t happen to me. Because the minute when you’re most complacent is the time when you’re most vulnerable. No matter how small you are as a company or how less sensitive of an information you hold in your network, information’s value is relative. Whatever maybe considered as irrelevant can be highly important to someone. Knowing how to take advantage of seemingly trivial data is a skill by the most successful of spammers.

Paranoia has its advantages. When paranoia is ruled more than logic than the fear, certain calculations precautions are used. Most people even call it as foresight. And isn’t foresight a necessary business skill?

I am lucky to find a partner with our HR department. They are believers of the internet usage and information handling policies that we collaborated in developing. Inspite that cooperation, enforcement is a problem. HR is beset with a host of other urgent maters like sexual harassment lawsuits and other legal compliance issues.

Inspite their support and programs towards educating employees and enjoining/mandating them to comply with our policies, we still notice some deviants.

It’s going to be a long and hard process. But, it’s going to be a worthy process, nonetheless. Maintaining our good graces with the HR department will always be key.
