A data breach is bound to happen to every company. It is just a matter of when. Here are two new data breaches announced this week and some food for though.
The statistics are staggering when in comes to cyber attacks.
There are reports that the American Dental Association has sent out USB drives laced with malware.
Many private schools are moving to a BYOD, platform in the school. This opens up a lot of risks.
Not spending money on IT security is a dangerous game, and actually costing organizations more money.
Don't waste your time, money, or professionalism by not stepping back, assessing where you are at, and developing a proper cyber security plan.
The only thing you can do to protect yourself and your organization is to train your users on what to look for.
Security organizations don’t simply install firewalls, they manage them and they break them to test.
Sometimes we renovate, others we start fresh and create something; learning from our history and tapping into our knowledge garnered over the years.
Is your organization ready for EMV? Gas stations are not.
Every company should ask vendors for a copy of their latest security assessment. Don't let them access to your network without having them tested.
Not getting your network tested by a third party isn't saving you any money, it is going to cost you money.
Inflight wireless is not secure. Proper measures need to be taken by airlines to force these companies to secure the wifi.
Security Assessments go a long way to help give you some cover. In the event something happens at your company you will need to show you were taking steps.
Never assume a third party network is secure. Do not allow access blindly into your network.
Conventional wisdom is always wrong. Avoid it at all costs when securing your network.
Testing your network for cyber-security risks is the first step, not testing is negligent.
This fear causes inaction. Not testing permits inaction. Why would you correct something you don't know is wrong?
