Hide Control Practices  help

  1. Establish, document, communicate and enforce a malicious software prevention policy in the organisation. Ensure that people in the organisation are aware of the need for protection against malicious software, and their responsibilities relative to same.
  2. Install and activate malicious software protection tools on all processing facilities, with malicious software definition files that are updated as required (automatically or semi-automatically).
  3. Distribute all protection software centrally (version and patch-level) using centralised configuration and change management.
  4. Regularly review and evaluate information on new potential threats.
  5. Filter incoming traffic, such as e-mail and downloads, to protect against unsolicited information (e.g., spyware, phishing e-mails).
