Data protection is an essential aspect of running a business. With the increasing complexity of technology and the ever-growing amount of data, it's becoming more challenging for companies or IT teams to manage it independently.
Preparing for cyberthreats is one of the main challenges businesses face today. Large organizations have more resources, funds, and personnel at their disposal, but the complexity and number of solutions increase the workload and vigilance for IT teams. Small to midsize organizations are often limited by resources, funds, and personnel, making cyber protection a challenge on a less complex network. This year, ensure all employees of your organization are aware of the threats and how they can help combat the increasing threat. This blog will serve as a resource of key items you should consider when teaching employees best practices and tips - you can even download a copy of this Cybersecurity Powerpoint Presentation to share with employees.
By now, everyone knows the importance of backing up your data. But with cybersecurity threats evolving and increasing, how can we ensure our backup data is secure? We rely on backups to keep our data secure in the event of a disaster event such as ransomware, human error, natural disasters, etc. Unfortunately, we can no longer assume data backups are secure and protected from attacks. We are going to break down how immutable storage is the ultimate solution to keeping our backup data secure by explaining: why backups are at risk, what immutable storage is, how immutable storage works, and your immutable storage options.
Maintaining a solid security stance in 2022 is a daunting task, especially for smaller IT teams. The world of cybersecurity is evolving at a breakneck pace, and defining what is needed to protect your organization is getting more difficult all the time. It is very easy for an IT organization to get outpaced by current trends in malicious activity.
The vast majority of cyberattacks happen to small and midsize businesses - 60% of them fold within 6 months of an attack, according to Inc. Magazine. With cyberattacks on the rise, network security is the number one issue on IT Exec's minds. We started a 3-part blog series, discussing the main types of network vulnerabilities: Hardware, Software, and Humans. In part 1, we covered the first type of network vulnerability, hardware, with the different categories and how they can be subject to vulnerabilities. Now we will be moving to part 2: vulnerabilities of network software. As before, we will address what makes software vulnerable, how it can be breached, how to prevent it, and what to do if a breach occurs.
