Identifying insider threat personas is difficult. But the consequences of failing to do so are great.
If you cannot track, access, or audit data at every stage of the process, then you can't claim your data is secure.
The principle of least privilege is intended to create an environment that, while providing elevated access, still limits risk.
It’s no secret that Active Directory (AD) credentials can easily be compromised. This is the reason why it is absolutely crucial for organizations to secure those credentials to protect against network breaches.
Africa is growing quickly in terms of population, economy, and global influence. Technology adoption continues to rise in Africa. However, with this growing prosperity and digitisation comes new risks and vulnerabilities that could undermine progress.
Everyone is familiar with the machinations of the criminal moneymaking scheme that is ransomware. We have much less visibility into and understanding of what happens “after” the attack, however, which has become cyberthieves’ main business.
Active Directory (AD) credentials can easily be stolen. This is why securing those credentials is absolutely crucial for any organization to avoid breaches.
Using only a strong user name and password doesn’t cut it anymore. Companies without MFA are wide open to attacks despite the other security solutions they may have in place.
The increasing use of cloud storage platforms has changed the way companies work. This is a big opportunity for managed service providers (MSP) and value-added resellers (VAR) and they need to take advantage of it.
The cloud has benefited organizations for many years now. But despite all the benefits it brings, suspicion is still present.
As you know by now, corporate credentials can be compromised quite easily and represent one of the most dangerous threats to any organization. MFA can help.
The past couple of months have been intense for most companies since they had to shift to working remotely. This situation is unfortunately a huge opportunity for cyber-attackers.
SMBs find it hard to trust a third party with their data because of the lack of visibility and control.
Multi-factor authentication (MFA) constitutes one of the most effective controls to prevent unauthorized access. Without MFA in place, all of the other security measures can be bypassed.
Let's have a look at the different indicators of compromise and which one is the easiest to observe.
It’s commonly understood that the greatest risk to any organization comes from the insider threat, no matter which industry or sector you work in.
Compliance is probably one of the dullest topics in cybersecurity. Let’s be honest, there’s nothing to get excited about because most people view it as a tick-box exercise.
External attacks represent 72% of data breaches today. It’s critical for organizations to understand how they can stop them.
It is very well known that Active Directory credentials can be compromised quite easily. It is therefore vital for companies to better secure those credentials in order to avoid a network breach.
The sad reality is that organizations that don’t use multi-factor authentication (MFA) are open to attack when their employees share passwords or fall for phishing scams. So, how can you explain the reluctance in adopting MFA?
The truth is, without multi-factor authentication (MFA), businesses are open to attacks if their employees fall for phishing scams or share passwords, which happens much more than you think (yes in your organisation too).
The cloud has been around for many years and has fundamentally changed the way companies do business by opening up a whole new world of employee collaboration and productivity. But SMBs are still doubtful about its security.
Windows logon auditing is an important activity for diverse security and compliance needs.
To improve the security of your corporate's network, protect the remote use of AD credentials.
The current Covid-19 (Coronavirus) situation all over the world forces companies to change their operating mode from face-to-face to remote work.
Just 38 percent use MFA to strengthen network credentials. Why the reluctance in adopting MFA? There are common misconceptions, such as, that a company needs to be a certain size to benefit from MFA.
Organizations without MFA are wide open to attack when employees fall for phishing scams or share passwords. What's holding them back?
What exactly are the specific issues SMBs have with data in the cloud?
Two thirds (61%) of small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) believe that their data is unsafe in the cloud, with almost a third (29%) saying that they have suffered a breach since moving to the cloud for storage.
IT professionals are fighting to secure information, appropriate access and confidentiality. But creating a culture of safe IT practices is not going to be enough.
Almost two-thirds of small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) believe that more work needs to be done to protect their data in the cloud.
In today’s worlds, organizations are facing the threat of compromise that is ever-present, ever-changing, and ever-gsingleing. The questions is: who and what exactly, are you fighting?
Smbs have become a lucrative target because most do not have sufficient defenses in place to protect, detect or react to attacks.
After more than a decade of trying to educate users, IT security professionals still aren't getting their message through.
The importance of getting access management right cannot be overstated. You need to make sure that anybody accessing your systems – and the data within – is exactly who they say they are.
