Like many business owners, you might be considering a replacement for your current video surveillance system or the installation of a brand new one.
In today’s security landscape, very few businesses are running without cybersecurity and physical security systems in place. However, as IoT technology continues to evolve, and more systems move into the cloud, companies need to constantly reevaluate their strategies.
Overall, attacks are increasing in frequency, ransom demands are rising and the cyber insurance industry has reached a crossroad where cyber insurance cannot be used by victims of a ransomware attack as a substitute for inadequate cybersecurity solutions and practices. The next generation of cybersecurity solutions can prevent these types of ransomware attacks and insureds will need to show the insurance carriers that they are doing their part to prevent such attacks or risk a substantial increase in their cyber insurance premium or even non-renewal of their policy.
The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly shifted e-commerce in 2020, maybe more than any other time in history. While traditional retail sales continue to decline, online sales have skyrocketed.
Companies specializing in cyber security have developed sophisticated (2FA) methods to protect users’ information.
It’s ten to five on a Friday afternoon. A technician has come in to perform a routine check on an electronic door. She enters the office with no issues – she works for a trusted third-party vendor, employees see her every week. She opens her laptop and connects to the Door Access Control Unit, a small Internet of Things (IoT) device used to operate the smart lock. Minutes later, trojans have been downloaded onto the company network, a crypto-mining operation has begun, and there is evidence of confidential data being exfiltrated. Where did things go wrong?
Morale plummeted for teachers and administrators alike throughout 2020, and the pandemic only exacerbated existing inequalities for students who lacked the necessary resources for success. But it’s not all bad news—one year later, mass vaccine distribution and dropping infection rates have allowed educators to return safely to the classroom. Now, schools are burdened with the responsibility of bridging the academic gaps.
Everyone—businesses and individuals alike—has sensitive information that cybercriminals want. To get it, cybercrooks aim a targeted hacking attack at a specific user. The purpose might be to steal the customer’s personal information that can lead to identity theft, to exploit the organization’s intellectual property, or even use the person’s sensitive income and employment data. These targeted attacks are known as spear phishing. They are designed to dupe the victim into downloading malware or giving away login details. Spear phishing is one of the most popular ploys used by hackers these days. Therefore, it is important for a person and a corporation to stay safe from this common hacking attack. Trustifi offers complete protection for your email system against any level of threat.
Over the past five years, ransomware has evolved from being a threat to individual computers to posing a serious danger to corporate networks. Cybercriminals have stopped simply trying to infect as many computers as possible and are now targeting big victims instead. Attacks on commercial organizations and government agencies require careful planning but can potentially lead to rewards in the tens of millions of dollars.
At the core of educational philosophy is the idea that no two schools (or students) are alike. But regardless of differences in location, revenue or grade level, educational institutions are increasingly facing a common problem: They’re all being targeted by cybercriminals and an arsenal of malware, ransomware and other sophisticated cyberattacks.
From the mid-5th century to the early 13th century, Constantinople was the largest and wealthiest city in Europe and represented the Roman Empire as the most secure and powerful city in the world. Its security architecture was one of the most modern the world had seen to that point, with multiple defensive layers of walls, water canals, and more. Twenty-three attempts made to penetrate the city over hundreds of years all failed. Even the Ottoman army struggled to breach its active defenses. But in the end, all it took was thinking outside of the box to finding a single hole to exploit.
Business leaders and data managers are in a race to keep up with today’s unprecedented data growth and data sprawl. To find and leverage the value in the continuous data torrent flowing across networks between data centers, multicloud platforms, and the edge requires a more dynamic approach to managing the movement of data.
It was just about one year ago when offices around the world began shuttering, their occupants migrating from conference rooms and cubicles to home office spaces, dining tables, or whatever spot was available between the kids and the cats.
You’ve heard of the Gartner Hype Cycle for emerging technologies, with its “peak of inflated expectations,” “trough of disillusionment,” and “slope of enlightenment.” A similar concept applies to 5G security.
With a new administration in place and the SolarWinds hack still fresh in our minds, I have been thinking a lot about the issues and opportunities the federal government is facing with new and old technology, especially when it comes to cybersecurity. The government is huge, and its systems are sprawling, distributed, dispersed, and not at all homogenous. Because of its size and the nature of what all the different organizations and agencies do, there are big and unique challenges in the years ahead. As an advisor for Cohesity, I thought I could share some of my experiences and perspectives on the unique challenges of securing our government’s systems, what can help organizations and agencies going forward, and why I chose to work with Cohesity.
In my role as an advisor to financial institutions on mobile biometric authentication, I meet bankers from all over the world. Most are technologically literate and leverage technology effectively in their operations, marketing, sales, communications, etc. However, many share a blind spot when it comes to their vulnerability to internal and external threats. They are insufficiently aware of:
According to the General Services Administration (GSA), mobile data traffic will increase fivefold by 2025, exponentially multiplying demand for wireless. Clearly, there is a need for government employees to have reliable access to information for them to support agency missions and deliver citizen services.
While the paperless office that was first proposed in the mid-1970s still hasn’t come to pass, the digitization of many government services and civic duties has had an impact. Tax filing—likely the most critical and perhaps the most digitized—is a great example. Electronic filing could be considered a form of FinTech and in many countries e-filing is nearly universal.
