A large corporate network, or simply at a small home network - both have the same security issues. Thats why set up a firewall. It is a software or hardware device that protects your computer from being attacked over the internet by hackers, viruses, and worms.
The vast majority of working Americans have to deal with email on the job. Considering that, it's no surprise to find out that hackers and bad actors will often target employees via malicious emails in an attempt to breach your company's security systems.
Malware is focused on mobile banking even more these days 😳
The increase in banking Trojan families is very troubling for a couple reasons:
1. Hackers are taking more interest in developing tools to target users who access banking services from mobile devices.
2. Hackers are perfecting their distribution methods.

You must be vigilant about your #accounts at all times. Do not write down your #passwords or #two -factor codes for any reason, no matter who asks. The importance of adding phone numbers and alternate emails to your accounts cannot be overstated.
And always remember the #golden rule of the #internet : common sense stops more #hacks than the most sophisticated #security#algorithms . If you have an inkling that something is wrong, something probably is.

If you have Windows 7 or earlier, it is time to upgrade.
Last week Microsoft warned that “some older versions of Windows” could be vulnerable to cyber-attacks. “All customers on affected operating systems [Windows 7 and earlier] should update as soon as possible,” said Microsoft.
US officials said the “BlueKeep” flaw could leave computers vulnerable to infection by viruses through automated attacks or by the downloading of malicious attachments.
They said ransomware can often be installed quickly, holding files hostage and demanding payment from individuals.
Two-factor, or multi-factor, authentication is an additional login code for an account—a second line of defense to your sensitive info.
The basic idea is that a single password for your important accounts simply isn’t enough. If your password is guessed, or hackers steal a database with your login information in plain text, your account is a sitting duck.
LabCorp said the data it provided to American Medical Collection Agency included the names, addresses and balance information of customers, but not their lab tests or results. Yet some of the patients provided their credit-card or bank information to the vendor, and it told LabCorp it was notifying about 200,000 LabCorp customers whose credit-card or bank information might have been accessed.

One of the biggest security threats come through email messages. Often, malicious people will send phishing emails, which attempt to obtain confidential company information by installing malware into the network or redirecting to compromised domains.
Today our Technical Director Holly Grace spoke on the Geek Street stage at #InfoSec19 all about why your security awareness training isn't working. Missed the talk? Here are the key points: ✔️ Physical access isn't just tailgating ✔️'Diffused responsibility' lowers the chance of a challenge ✔️ Intruders might not need to go further than reception ✔️ Phishing isn't just emails, in 2019 we have faxes! ✔️ HTTPS doesn't stop phishing ✔️ XSS is super awesome ✔️ Passwords suck

First American Financial announced that they may have provided unauthorized access to the financial information of its customers. There was a design defect in one of its applications that may have exposed mass amounts of data. It is still unclear if hackers and criminals accessed the data, but if they do, it would be a VIRTUAL GOLD MINE.
There are alarming cyber security issues faced by today’s maritime industry. For example, it is entirely feasible for a hacker to break into a ship’s computer system and alter the ship’s course.
The primary issue is that most maritime transportation firms do not treat their ships’ systems as critical networks. A critical network should be isolated, with only a few well defended entrance points into the network, especially to the ship’s operational systems.
One key attack vector can be software updates and maintenance patches that are applied to the ship’s operational systems via a USB drive or other portable media brought on board by a technician who is often an outside contractor. Luckily, there are now effective solutions to prevent this threat, such as OPSWAT MetaDefender Kiosk.
Maintenance and operational files should also be securely stored and handled within the critical network, and a best practice is to use a secure storage solution like OPSWAT Vault.
Another best practice is to have all content go through a layered set of defenses, including data sanitization, a technology that can prevent zero-day attacks.
