We see it all too often – agencies simply aren’t equipped to respond to cybersecurity attacks. Budget cuts, aging legacy infrastructure, complex data silos, and evolving threats make preparation difficult. Businesses (and consumers) can’t just be aware of their digital profiles; they need to actively secure and maintain them.
Be proactive – don’t wait until you’ve discovered a breach to act.
Cybersecurity isn’t just for IT teams; employees at all levels must be vigilant and take accountability. Each October, businesses and the government work together to highlight the important of cybersecurity for National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM). The smallest changes can help protect your personal and professional data while decreasing risks.
Going Beyond the Basics
Taking basic actions such as keeping your anti-virus software up to date and watching out for phishing attempts is helpful, but there are other things to consider for those responsible for protecting networks and employees.
Below are top-level tips for security professionals:
- Set up global rules for instant removal of malicious messages from users inboxes
- To fight back new malware variants such as encryption and polymorphing, leverage AI solutions to for in-memory threat detection
- Fine tune behavior-analysis tools to set a solid baseline so you can maximize protection of your network environment
