Video: An Overview of the 5 Es of Cybersecurity Transcript

Hi, my name is Kyle Jekot and I'm a senior security business partner with PNC’s enterprise technology and security. In this video series, we'll walk through the 5 Es of cybersecurity best practices.

We'll talk about establishing procedures and enforcing those procedures. We'll walk through educating employees and empowering employees to make the right decisions and evolving your cybersecurity plans as the threat landscape changes.

In step 1 and 2 in establishing your procedures is understanding every part of your business process and understanding the risk that it poses and putting in steps to mitigate that risk.

Enforcing your procedures means that you are working through your procedures and not deviating from them unless there's a business need to do so. And consider rewriting those procedures if there are frequent deviations.

In steps 3 and 4, we'll talk through educating your employees on the current cybersecurity threat landscape, including malware, phishing and social engineering. We'll also talk about how to help employees identify red flags and phishing emails and where to report those in the event they encounter one.

We'll also talk about empowering your employees, giving them the ability to raise their hand if something doesn't seem right. If they feel like they don't normally receive emails from the CEO and then they start to receive emails, give them a convenient and comfortable process to raise their hand and say that something just doesn't seem right.

And the last step we'll walk through, understanding that the cybersecurity threat landscape is always changing and evolving and making sure that your business processes as well as your continuity plans are evolving along with that.

There's a lot more to talk through in each of these steps. We hope you'll join us for the rest of the video series where we'll talk about each of these in greater detail. If you have any specific cybersecurity questions, please contact your PNC representative and they will schedule time with our security team.

Thanks for your time today.
