    I'd add to this list:
    DO a comprehensive IT Security assessment if you aren't sure you have all your bases covered
    DO a mock phishing / malware / ransomware test of your organization to determine staff's capability level in identifying threats
    DON'T think it won't happen to you, businesses security is getting breached in every sector and it is a lot harder to rebuild trust with clients and prospects than it is to make sure your systems are as secure as they can be.

    @cdevos, All great points and things that every business needs to consider for security purposes. As you mention, breaches and hacks occur every day and they are becoming more and more complicated. 

    Great advice!
