In security operations to ADAPT is to never ADAPT.
Security systems and protocols must continue to be refined and changed in order to meet ever evolving/changing threats and risks.
Never become accustomed to any system no matter its level of effectiveness, continue to test over and over your security architecture to ensure that they are able to secure your assets and protect you and your interests.
A credit card sized computer remains hidden in a laboratory connected to its network for a period of 10 months. During these 10 months, the attacker was able to enter into the systems and applications that were not approved for access. The system administrators did not check as to what devices were connected on the network. The attacker then took advantage of the weaknesses in the laboratory’s network to remain undetected for 10 months, stealing 23 files in the process. Two of these files contained information on International Traffic in Arms Regulations, which controls the transfer of military and space-related technology, related to the Mars Science Laboratory Mission.
If you are wondering if this is from a fiction novel or a TV series, you are wrong. This is the attack which has happened at NASA. Yes, you read it right. The world’s most advanced space lab was hacked due to an unauthorized Raspberry Pi computer connected to the JPL servers.
Welcome to the brave new world where hacks such as these have become common news. The cybersecurity measures today implemented across organizations in the world are struggling in the wake of loose controls, dilapidated infrastructure and inability to keep pace with the breakneck speed with which the hackers operate and adopt newer technologies.
While some may say that doomsday is near, there are 3 technologies which have the power to completely transform the way cybersecurity is implemented. While these new technologies are still trying to germinate, they offer a hope that cybersecurity measures with their help can slow down the pace of the hackers and bring a level field in this fight.
Keys are so 90'sm. Today you don't need a key to open your house, that's convenient and secure, you can do it with your fingerprint or a code, or even your voice! Add extra security by installing a video doorbell and be there even if you are on the other side of the world!
Who is next? Ransomware is ransacking and paralyzing US cities and businesses, bad news is that this is just a beginning 🚨 Best thing that business or a city or any organization can do is ongoing Security Assessment and Security Awareness 🔬. Do us a favor and start with simple things like multi factor authentication MFA (authenticate via email), regular password change (often and use symbols) and email phishing training (do not click on links in email!) 🌅 #securityawareness#precogsecurity#secureyourdata
URGENT: UAB IT is urging the campus community to update the Firefox web browser on their computers after a critical security vulnerability was reported by Mozilla. All supported versions of Firefox prior to version 67.0.3 or ESR 60.7.1 are impacted by the vulnerability. 🔥
FACT: Leading causes of data breaches are weak and default passwords, unpatched software and insecure remote access.
Having the right resources to educate your employees on security awareness is crucial to all companies.
Join us to see what you can do to be proactive. M.A. Polce will be releasing a monthly Security Awareness Training calendar. Stay tuned! #educate#securityawareness#informationtechnology#knowbe4#mapolce
